• 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
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.”
a deeper meaning

person, place, or thing is used to
represent something else (the
dove is a symbol of peace)

symbols of good or evil.

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
Giving hints or clues about
events that are going to
happen later in the plot is
called foreshadowing.
Examples of Foreshadowing in
The 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
