Games at Twilight VP

In Literature we are about to read Games at Twilight by Anita Desai. First, we had to do some activities. These are the following:

Twilight means «half-light», and the half light of the morning or the evening is a symbol of dichotomy, representing the dividing-line which at once joins and separates a pair of opposites (division into two mutually exclusive, opposed, or contradictory groups). There are two types of twilight: The one in the morning, when the sun rises, which defines the beginning of the day. It could, at the same time, symbolize the beginning of something new; And the evening twilight when the sun sets. This one could symbolize the ending of something, but that at the same time, will state the beginning of another thing (another day for example), and so it goes. 

Rite of passage notes

The weather throughout the first page is described as a melting hot day, with the sun shining very brightly and with suffocating high temperatures. Anyway, the children are excited to go outside to play. They are all choppy and willing to go to the garden as soon as possible.

Words or phrases in connection with death:

  • «No life stirred at this arid time of the day…»
  • «…the birds still drooped, like dead fruit…»
  • «The outdoor dog lay stretched as if dead […] his paws and ears and tail all reaching out like dying travellers in search for water.»
  • «…lay still.»
  • «…a band of parrots suddenly fell out of the eucalyptus tree, tumbled frantically…»
