Literary Term: Allusion No, that’s illusion not allusion.
Definition • Allusion: an indirect and usually brief reference to a person, place, or event. • This reference is probably explicit, but its meaning can be understood only if the person, place, or event is well known by all or known by the reader. • An allusion can help the reader develop their understanding of the theme of the book, or bring up a new theme based on that small reference.
Allusions in The Giver • There are many references to the Bible in The Giver: • The baby Gabriel’s name could be an allusion to the Angel Gabriel in the Christian religion. • Jonas’s name alludes to the story of Jonah and the whale. • When Jonas is selected to be the Giver, it alludes to the story of Jesus and how they were both “The Chosen One.”
Symbolism a deeper meaning
Definition • It is a literary term in which a person, place, or thing is used to represent something else (the dove is a symbol of peace) • Characters in literature are often symbols of good or evil.
Why do we use Symbols? • Visuals are easier to remember • Add richness to story • Increases likelihood of making connections
The Giver The Bike symbolized the rare freedom to break a rule. Everyone knew that the nine-year-olds learned to ride their bike before they were really allowed to. Pale Eyes symbolized wisdom, forbidden knowledge, and pain. All who had pale eyes suffered because they knew and felt more than anyone else.
Foreshadowing Giving hints or clues about events that are going to happen later in the plot is called foreshadowing.
Examples of Foreshadowing inThe Giver • Jonas is apprehensive about his assignment • Jonas sees the apple turn red • When Lilly points out that Jonas and Gabe both have light eyes
