Risk Taking Researcher
Part 1 and 2
As I read this diverse book, I started to question its theme and plot, I found it kind of interesting and at the same time confusing for many reasons, but to first talk about what is confusing, there is first need to understand the plot. Due to this, I researched on the book, and it stated that Anthem is a dystopian fiction, where it takes place on some unspecified future date, where mankind entered another dark age, and so therefore the concept of individuality has been eliminated. As I read this first part I kind of understood why the characters refer to themselves as we. It is weird that instead of saying I, the characters of the book say we. This may be connected to the removal of individuality, because they don't refer to themselves as individuals, but yes as groups. Also these pronouns used can be referred to the person itself and others, since they are no longer individuals.
After doing more research, I couldn't find the answer to the one question that still pertained, which clearly is demonstrated on the image above, I could not find if the characters were all the same physically, because if they were physically all the same, then there would be many more topics to talk about.
