The Maze Runner: Dystopian Society.
Transcript of The Maze Runner: Dystopian Society.
Why it's considered dystopian
The society in The Maze Runner is dystopian because the inhabitants are there against their own will. They were placed in the maze by the creators, who survey them constantly. There are things outside the walls waiting to hurt them, and eventually they try to escape.
A boy awakes in an elevator with no recollection of his life, other than his name, which is Thomas. When the elevator opens, he is greeted by a small society of other teenage boys, all around the age of 16.
The other boys all have the same symptoms. None of them have any memory, and Thomas soon discovers they have been in The Glade for two years with no idea how they got there. They have turned the place into a functioning society.
Side Note: The Glade
The Glade is the place in which the boys call home. it is a large area surrounded be un-climbable stone walls that slide shut every night, to protect from the monsters outside.
What is a dystopia?
A dystopia is a society characterized by human misery, frightening and squalor. Dystopias include disease and oppression, usually, the leaders in the dystopia do their best to dehumanize the civilians.
The maze is what The Glade is located in. So far, none of the inhabitants have been able to find a way out.
