Chapter Seven- The Man with Red Eyes
bilious proposition obliquely chortling gallivanting
opaque inefficient preliminaries belligerent
- What is the man in the suit really reporting about the children?
- When we first met the man with the red eyes, did you get the impression that he was IT or have we not met IT yet?
- The man talks to the children about allowing him to make all the decisions for them, of having a life like the others on Camazotz. What is so wrong with the sameness of this planet?
- Why does Charles Wallace taste sand for dinner while Meg and Calvin are having roasted turkey?
- How do you see Meg's imperfections helping the children throughout this chapter? Give me some examples.Noteworthy Notes from SparkNotes:-Camazotz is all about uniformity. This is different from the togetherness that the children must maintain in order to "win."-Their togetherness is symbolized by their hand-holding.-Things on Camazotz are not as they seem, which the children really realize with the man.-Camazotz is an extreme example of uniformity and conformity.
