Transcript of Gathering Blue

photo credit Nasa / Goddard Space Flight Center / Reto Stöckli Compare and Contrast Conflict Gathering Blue: The main conflict is man vs. society. The people in Kira's village don't accept anyone who is handicapped. If a person becomes handicapped through injury or disease, or if newborn babies have any physical flaws, they are destined to die. This conflict is also seen in the control the Guardians have over the villagers.

The Giver: One "man vs. nature" conflict is depicted by the way in which society tries to control or overcome the forces of nature. They do this by controlling life and death, the weather, and any other aspects of nature that they can. At the same time, pain and suffering from nature sometimes do overcome society's constraints on them.

Plot Settings Gathering Blue: Starts in a small dystopian village with an Edifice building in the center continues on to a forest and Kira's and Thomas' room.
