LIt Studies
“The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas”
After reading the story again, think about these quotations.
1. As they did without monarchy and slavery, so they also got on without the stock exchange, the advertisement, the secret police, and the bomb.
2. This is the treason of the artist: a refusal to admit the banality of evil and the terrible boredom of pain.
3. Religion yes, clergy no.
4. I don’t think many of them need to take drooz.
5. They feel disgust, which they had thought themselves superior to.
6. Those are the terms. To exchange all the goodness and grace of every life in Omelas for that single, small improvement: to throw away the happiness of thousands for the chance of happiness of one: that would be to let guilt within the walls indeed.
7. It is too degraded and imbecile to know any real joy. It has been afraid too long ever to be free of fear. Its habits are too uncouth for it to respond to humane treatment. Indeed, after so long it would probably be wretched without walls about it to protect it, and darkness for its Eyes, and its own excrement to sit in.
8. The place they go towards is a place even less imaginable to most of us than the city of happiness. I cannot describe it at all.
