Chance

By Adam and Jacob


Summary

  • Chance in Ransom by David Malouf, plays a crucial role in the narrative. He uses chance to create mystery and a sense of uncertainty in the story. Chance can be what drives someone to act.


Examples from the text

  • Chance is shown in ransom when Priam has a vision in where Iris speaks to him, she did not reveal the end of his journey, thus leaving the ending to chance. It was chance that Hector would meet Patroclus dressed in Achilles’ amour and then Hector killing Patroclus, therefor you could say that the whole narrative is based on chance. It was chance that could have discouraged Priam from embarking on his journey, he didn’t know the outcome.


Quote relating to chance

  • “Not a mockery, my friend, but the way things are. Not the way they must be, but they way they have turned out. In a world that is also subject to chance.” (pg. 46)


Fate

By Jordan and dylan


Fate is not set in stone. In the book Ransom, Hermes and Iris present Priam's fate, yet this cannot be changed. The gods can show Priam his fate but they cannot solve it. It was the characters decisions what lead them to their fate.Even when Priam is confronted with doubt, he moves through that and pushes forward to fulfil his visions.


Iris is the god who appears in Priams vision and shows Priamthe journey he undertakes. This is what gives Priam the idea to go and retreive his dead sons body. Hermes was a trickster and played around with Priam and Somax.Hermes escorts Priam and somax to Achilles camps and helps Priam gets his son back.
