ABOUT THE BOOK What comes to mind when you envision a perfect society? Does it consist solely of happiness and peace? Are there equal rights for everyone regardless of gender, age and/or ethnic background? What about the weather, wildlife and natural landscapes? Is there a limit to the number of children families can have, or even to how they go about producing them? Is there a fair judicial system in place? Lois Lowry´s The Giver tells the story of such a utopian society in which twelve-year old Jonas is the main character. Although his society might at first seem perfect and balanced-there are, after all, no feelings, hunger, inequalities or pain-Jonas eventually realizes that his community has been missing out on all that life has to offer, calling into question the very concept of ´´ideal.´´ The Giver, Lois Lowry´s 21st novel, was published in 1993 and earned a Newbery Medal in 1994, ´´[becoming] an almost instant classic.´´ As a novel of the utopian genre written in 23 chapters and from a third-person perspective, the story follows Jonas´ life in his perfect society as he progresses from an innocent eleven-year old to a wise twelve-year-old Receiver of Memories. It is easy to wonder exactly how Lois Lowry came up with such a concept, and the truth is that ´´inspirations for The Giver are so varied´´ that it can be challenging to give a short answer. As she states in detail in her 1994 Newbery Acceptance speech, her childhood in Japan, her college years, her father´s aging and reaction to losing one of his daughters, and her parents´ attempts to adjust to constant moves all played a part in creating the storyline. In reference to her writing of The Giver, Lowry recalled, ´´In the beginning to write The Giver I created - as I always do, in every book - a world that existed only in my imagination - the world of ´only us, only now.´ I tried to make Jonas´s world seem familiar, comfortable, and safe, and I tried to seduce the reader. I seduced myself along the way. It did feel good, that world. I got rid of all the things I fear and dislike; all the violence, prejudice, poverty, and injustice, and I even threw in good manners as a way of life because I liked the idea of it.´´ Although Jonas´ society is clearly different from our own, Lowry was also able to leave quite a few things up to interpretation without confusing her readers. For example, it is ambiguous whether animals actually exist in Jonas´ society, while the lack of feelings and sexual attraction within his community seem to hint at the possibility of artificial insemination. Many have also been puzzled by the novel´s ambiguous conclusion, but Lowry has remained adamant about not shedding light upon the story´s ending. She states: ´´I really believe that every reader creates his/her own book, bringing to the written words their own experiences, dreams, wishes, passions. For me to explain everything from my own viewpoint limits that experience for the reader.´´ Regardless of the interpretations, Lowry seems to have fashioned many of her novels with certain concepts in mind. As she says: ´´My books have varied in content and style. Yet it seems that all of them deal, essentially, with the same general theme: the importance of human connections.´´ She has stated that The Giver ´´speak[s] to the same concern: the vital need of people to be aware of their interdependence, not only with each other, but with the world and its environment.´´ ...buy the book to read more!
