Ender's Game Prezi
Transcript of Ender's Game Prezi
September 2011 "It's fine to work with these hegemonist Russians with the buggers out there..." pg. 137
hegemonist-leadership exercised by one nation over others "Not this cold-eyed, dark-skinned manling who kills wasps with his fingers." pg. 236
manling-a little man "It was plain that Ender was not the provocateur." pg. 305
provocateur-a person who provokes trouble or the like "...and they had the gall to perform the victory and end the game right under their noses." pg. 218
gall-bitterness of spirit "...no invasion could ever threaten the human race with annihilation." pg. 153
annihilation-extinction, destruction Imagery in the novel Diction "Ender stepped under the water and rinsed himself, took the sweat of combat and let it run down the drain." pg. 214 "There were no stars at all. Just empty, empty space in a dazzlingly bright room." pg. 192 "...his whole body bent with weariness, his eyes dark from lack of sleep; and yet his skin was still soft and translucent, the skin of a child, the soft curved cheek, the slender limbs of a little boy." pg. 220 Symbol The names of the armies that Ender was placed in were symbols. Ender was placed in Salamander and Phoenix armies before he was placed as commander of his own army, Dragon. All armies are linked together through their association with fire. The dragon symbolizes Ender's intelligence and violence. The salamander represents the fact that Ender was cut off from his old group, right as he was starting to fit in, and he has to regrow as a soldier. The Six Weeks Theme The Mystery Within I believe that this book relates to the six weeks theme because within the entire novel, there is a mystery. The giant's game is a mystery, because Ender never knows what's going to happen in the game. When he made it up into the tower, it was all a mystery. The entire game was pretty much a mystery to Ender. The entire novel was pretty much a mystery. You never know what is going to happen next--another example is when Ender is fighting the buggers although he doesn't know it. It was a mystery up until we found out that he was really facing the buggers, because we had no idea when he was going to face them. Connections in the Novel I think that the sibling rivalry in the novel really connects to me. I feel like mine is a bit different, though, because while Peter and Valentine are working together, it doesn't necessarily mean that they love each other; they are just coming together as siblings, who both happen to be geniuses, to try and get Peter to the top. Even though my brother and I fight a lot, we still love each other in the end. There is always rivalry between us: he said, she said; this is fair, this isn't fair; etc. I feel like even though we get into arguments quite a bit, we love each other in the end; unlike Peter and Valentine. by: Orson Scott Card
