Title Contextualizing Freewill in Lois Lowry's Novel "The Giver"
 
Creator Nima, Kezang
 
Subject freewill, limited, society, choice, authority, control, community
 
Description The winner of The Newberry Medal, ‘The Giver’ is one of the most beloved and successful books for children and young adults. A few countries have prescribed this book in their school curriculum. But at the same time this book has been a matter of controversy among many readers, mainly because of its distinct setting and events. The present paper is an attempt to explore the concept of ‘freewill’ and ‘freedom’. The aim is also to examine the significance of freewill and freedom in Jonas’s community and its relationship in leading a meaningful life in the novel.
