Transcript: by Orson Scott Card Prezi created by Jon Li At Battle School, Ender is immediately seperated from the rest of the Launchies, the freshman at the school because of the preferred treatment of Colonel Graeff, the principal of Battle School Ender matriculates earlier than any other student, quickly joining an army, then subsequently proving to be valuable in battles inside the battle room. The hidden reason for Ender maturing so quickly is the inception of the second Bugger War. This is the most impactful quote of the entire book. It's spoken by Bean, Ender's right hand man and young just like Ender. Literally, in the book, it means that in the null gravity playing field of the Battle Room, they have to reorient themselves and imagine that the enemy gate is down. This is also a life quote. It means that to succeed, you often need to think outside of the box and reposition yourself. Another interpreation is that one must lower youself to the level of the enemy and think like them to beat them. In the future, Andrew "Ender" Wiggins is a thrid child, which other children make fun of because of Earth's two-child policy. Ender is monitored by the government because he is a potential candidate for Battle School, a school comparable to the West Point of the world for young children. The government in control, and soon after Ender mortally wounds Stilson, a bully, he is accepted to the School. People like Petra, a star shooter in Ender’s first army in Battle School, motivate him to succeed and without them, Ender would be lost. Ender’s siblings, vicious Peter and loving Valentine provide a subplot in the novel and also advance the plot for Ender. Valentine and Peter take on pseudonyms Locke and Demonthesus, which are to John Locke, the Enlightment thinker and Dereferencesmonthesus, who is an ancient Greek philosopher and politician. They are allegories for political change and could be references to the author’s ideas. Colonel Rackham is the mentor to Ender and as the administrator of battle School, he advances the plot. First and foremost, in an exclusive interview with Diana Rankin, she exclaimed that this is the book that led to her interest in science fiction. If you're interested in the justification of war, read this!!!! The Marine's book list in 2011 included Ender's Game. This book is really for everyone, for those who like strong character development, motifs, and allegories, the type of person who likes politics, and readers who like action. Why you should read this... The title: Ender’s Game is a paradox, because something that ends doesn’t give off a sense of a game, and basically the title could be a reference to the conflicting feelings that Ender has throughout the story and just the entire paradox of the book, being that Ender is still an adolescent boy who’s learning how to kill an entire population On a more literal stage, the title could refer to the game that Ender played, in the Battle Room of Battle School, which was played with two teams in a null gravity environment that was a more complicated version of capture the flag. Most likely however, is that it refers to the game of life that Ender played with, growing up in such an austere environment. Ender's Personallity Significance of the Title Ender's Game Brief Introduction Who makes an appearance in the story? At the School.... His compassion earns the respect of his peers and helps his leadership, allowing his teammates to trust Ender. Also Ender is able to gain a trusted circle of friends that are important in Ender's life journey. Ender's ruthlessness allows him to win in life, and he only makes it to Command School with brutal self defense. When playing the simulation game at Command School, Ender shows his ruthlessness by sacrificing his own fleet in order to defeat the enemy one and for all. The development of leadership and self-conflict with Ender is vast, as the story can be percieved on the level of Character vs. self, and this viewpoint can represent another medium as to which the story can be views.
