Elements of the Novel in Ender’s Games

In the novel “Ender’s Game”(Card,1988) Earth is being attacked by buggers. Only Ender Wiggins, one of the best of the best can finish the bugger battle (buggers are aliens attacking Earth). He is young, smart, cunning, and strategy perfect, then one day he is pulled from home and brought up into space for training at Battle School. Ender doesn’t fit in and is very good in training, but this makes enemies. As the years go by he gets comfortable with technology and becomes the number one group in Battle School. As he is ready to defeat the buggers he thinks it is a simulation and blows up a planet and the buggers. The problem is resolved for Earth, but he may never go home. Elements of the novel help people see what this story is about. Elements in the novel in “Enders Game” include genre, character development, setting, plot structure, point of view, and theme.
The definition of genre is what type of book, a book is. The popular novel genre of “Ender’s Game” is Science Fiction and the traditional genre in the book “Ender’s Game is Bildungstroman. This proven because Ender is put into space (futuristic) to battle buggers with special gear. As Ender seeks to train in battle school he finds that he gets to know how to hack into desks which are futuristic computers, and makes fun of a boy named Bernard. Also, Ender fights in Battle Ships out in space. The genre in the books “Ender’s Game” is Science Fiction. This is proven through many realistic possibilities ahead into the future and aliens that are near our grasp to find. “Ender’s Game” shows many other possible science fiction, proven things, but the main science fiction novel proof is given through aliens and futuristic possibilities.


The meaning of Character development is how a character grows throughout the book. Character development is an important element in the novel because it helps characters develop to see things in a different way. The major character in Ender’s game is Ender Wiggin. The main conflict for Ender is fitting in, at battle school. Battle school helps him develop because people in battle school are changing all the time causing Ender to change also (which is character development). There are also minor characters in Ender’s Game like Bean, and Bonzo. Bean is Ender’s assistant basically in Ender’s Game. Ashe changes he influences Ender quite a bit. Also Bonzo, influences him because he isn’t very nice to Ender and is very much like an enemy to him.
Ender develops throughout the novel because he is changing from other people with influences. He is changing with how things work around the battle school. Ashe does this he gets very smart and eventually it helps him improve in his battles. The author helps extend the book with character descriptions by showing what the character thinks and how he acts, putting in mini stories.

Setting in Enders Game means where the story takes place. This is one of the elements in a novel. The major setting in Enders Game is the battle school. There are no multiple settings in this novel. This is a good idea for the author to do because this helps readers focus on what is going on in what spot. This also helps because the readers can help understand the book a little bit better. There are no important parallels or contrast between different settings in this book because there are no multiple settings.

There is one setting that is especially hard to develop through the novel. This setting would be making Ender’s way through Battle school. In the novel Ender gets lost multiple times, but finds his way through the battle school with lights and signs. This setting plays a special role in developing Ender. This helps Ender know how buggers work. This also helps Ender learn new things in life even though he is very smart.

Plot structure is the main event in a story. It is also the problematic sequence in the story. Plot structure is one of the top elements of the novel in Ender’s Game. The major conflict in Ender’s Game is fighting buggers and learning how to fight them in battle school. There are two story lines in the novel Enders Game. One being learning how to defeat buggers and the other being actually fighting them. There are two subplots in the novel. If there were only one then there would on be one boring story. Two subplots help the reader understand the story and make it exiting.

There are many serial plottings in Ender’s Game. One of the serial plotting is how Ender fights Bonzo. They are basically mini stories within a story to build up a big novel. The affect of having multiple serial plotting in the novel is how Ender defeats all the bugger once and for all. This is the affect of serial plotting leading up to the main event.

Point of view means how the story is told or who the story is told from. Point of View is one of the elements of the novel. There are many points of view that the author uses in the book “Ender’s Game”. The main point of view is viewed from Ender. Also known as ‘Stream of consciousness’.This known because Ender states everything he says. Also there are little points of views told by Ender’s friends. This is known because they say that they hope Ender will be alright multiple times throughout the book. And his friends watch out for him like Petra, and Bean. An effect of these points of views being told by multiple people throughout the novel is that Ender is saved multiple times by his friends when they say what they are thinking out loud, and with Ender’s point of view written out loud this helps readers understand what is going on throughout the novel.

The most advanced technique is shown for Ender, throughout the novel is because he is the most important character throughout the entire novel. The most advanced technique would be how the author writes down things about what Ender is thinking rather than what he is just saying. The author also writes down everything that is going on around Ender. Advanced techniques throughout the novel helps readers know what is going on ever better throughout the novel if the author writes down everything that Ender is thinking most every minute.

The meaning of theme is almost like genre, but they are not the same thing. Theme is how the story acts like. For instance the theme for Ender’s Game is aliens. Themes function throughout the novel and are tied together with all of the other elements of the novel, but are mostly one category. The theme aliens function throughout the novel, because the story is all about how to fight aliens and preparing to fight them. This especial theme reminds me of the story called “Puppet Show”, because it has aliens in it and it has a similar story to Ender’s Game./The clue that gives away that the book Ender’s Game’s theme is aliens because the first page of the book tells the readers about buggers that there are attacking Earth.

The elements of the novel in Ender’s Game are theme, point of view, genre, setting, and plot structure. I know this because all of these elements are clearly described throughout the novel. The theme in Ender’s game is aliens. The genre of Ender’s Game is science fiction. The setting of Ender’s Game is the battle school. The plot of Ender’s Game is how to defeat buggers and the point of view is told by Ender Wiggins himself. Each element of the novel is very important because it makes of the novel. Without the elements of the novel there would be no structure and the story would act like a big wobbly unstable structure.
