The Divergent series is delighting the world with its epic of Tris and Four struggling through the Factions to create a better world. But there are deeper meanings and symbols beneath the surface. Brain chemistry and psychology tests merge with a dark future in the recognizable ruins of Chicago. What is the significance of the number four and why is it fitting that three and four should remake the world? How many Biblical references appear? Why are ravens and crows such popular symbols? And what themes does this series share with The Hunger Games and all the other dystopias, past and present? As Tris becomes a warrior woman on the classic heroine’s journey, she discovers the deeper truths of the five Factions, and in so doing, the deeper truths of herself.
