Curiosity Killed The Cat
How do utopias change so quickly? As said before, it all starts with curiosity. The book, "The Giver" portrays curiosity in many ways, an example of this is in the giver as read, "Ash?" He Called. "Does anything seem strange about the apple?" (Lowry.31) The quote shows that the change in the color of the apple Made Jonas curious if his friend Ash could see the change. Jonas then asked Ash if he could see the change. All the curiosity in side of Jonas led to him and the giver plotting a plan to releasing the memories to the citizens of the utopia which when it happened led to a dystopia.
Never the less, curiosity can feel intriguing or even frightening when one doesn't understand what's happening. This example is from Brave New World "Oh, look, look!" They spoke in low, scared voices. "Whatever is the matter with her?" "Why is she so fat?" They had never seen a face like hers." (Huxely.202) The children had lived in the utopia for their whole lives so they had no way of knowing what the dystopia was like considering their curiosity towards the woman.
