Transcript of Divergent Theme

Thematic Commentary Divergent: Theme of the novel: Proof of
Theme: Characterization The novel "Divergent" features a girl named Tris Prior. Tris is Divergent, meaning that she could belong in more then one faction. The factions fear the Divergent. To them, they can't be controlled, so they are to be killed. Throughout the novel, Tris must hide her Divergence. She must play an innocent, little girl who can't defend herself so that no one suspects anything. But in the end, Tris realizes that she can't hide who she is so that society will accept her, so she admits it to herself and lets her Divergence show. In the end, this helps her save Tobias, her one true love, and the remains of her old faction, Abnegation. When Dauntless was placed under simulation, Tris is one of the only not effected, being Divergent. If she hadn't revealed herself and rebelled against Dauntless, and instead played along and pretended to be under simulation, she never would've stopped Erudite from destroying her old faction. Although a few of her loved ones were killed, she was able to save some of the ones that truly mattered to her by rebelling against Dauntless and sticking up for what she truly believed in; the rights of Abnegation. Conclusion Proof of Theme: Plot In the plot of the novel "Divergent", Abnegation,
Tris's old faction, has a serious rivalry against
Erudite, the faction that believes in intelligence. Throughout the novel, Erudite continually tries to destroy Abnegation in any way they can. Whether it's releasing articles about them in the newspaper or killing out their faction bit by bit, they have no problem with watching them suffer. Tris, who was a transfer from Abnegation, wanted to do something about it. She wanted to fight back, but couldn't, because Dauntless would doubt her loyalty to the faction. In the end, she rebelled against Dauntless and fought with Abnegation, because in her heart she knew it was what she believed in. Because of this, she saved Tobias and her brother, Caleb, who she never would have been able to rescue in the first place if she had not stuck up for what she believed in. Theme: Media By:
Claire Groves The theme of the novel "Divergent" is sticking up for what you believe in, because it will pay off in the long run. The song that I think goes perfectly with the novel "Divergent" is "Fly", by Nicki Minaj featuring Rihanna. I think the song relates to the theme of Divergent because the song talks about a strong, independent woman who came to fight for her rights and beliefs, somewhat like how Tris went to battle against Erudite and Dauntless because they were messing with her old faction. In the song, it states: "Everybody wanna try to box me in, Suffocating every time it locks me in, Paint they own pictures than they crop me in, But I will remain where the top begins, Cause I am not a word, I am not a line, I am not a girl that can be defined." In the novel, Tris is not allowed to have feelings for her old faction (e.g. everybody is trying to "box her in"), but eventually she fights with them because it is what she truly believes in (e.g. she isn't a girl that "can be defined"), and because of this confidence, she wins by saving the few that she cares about left. In conclusion, "Fly" by Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, directly relates to the theme of the novel, which is to stand up for what you believe in because it will pay off in the long run. The song talks about somebody who wants to fight for the rights and plans to win at that, just like how Tris felt the need to stand up for Abnegation, because it was what she believed was right.
