Juliana soon has her own spiritual experience when she arrives in Cheyenne. She discovers that Abendsen now lives in a normal house with his family, having left behind the High Castle due to a change of outlook; he no longer preoccupies himself with thoughts that he might soon be assassinated.
After dodging many of Juliana's questions about his inspiration for his novel, Abendsen finally confesses that he used the I Ching to guide his writing of The Grasshopper Lies Heavy.
Several characters in The Man in the High Castle read the popular novel The Grasshopper Lies Heavy , by Hawthorne Abendsen, whose title is assumed or supposed to have come from the Bible  : 70 verse "The grasshopper shall be a burden" Ecclesiastes For this reason, the Germans have banned the novel in the occupied US,  : 91 but it is widely read in the Pacific, and its publication is legal in the neutral countries.
The Grasshopper Lies Heavy postulates that President Roosevelt survives an assassination attempt but forgoes re-election in , honoring George Washington 's two-term limit.
The next president, Rexford Tugwell , removes the Pacific Fleet from Pearl Harbor , Hawaii, saving it from Japanese attack, which ensures that the US enters the conflict a well-equipped naval power.
After the war, President Tugwell initiates the New Deal on a worldwide scale. With American assistance, China goes through a decade of rebuilding.
People in lesser developed places in Africa and Asia are sent television kits, through which they learn how to read and receive instructions on practical skills such as digging wells and purifying water.
In turn, these places become markets for American factories. In the British Empire , social and economic progress has also brought relief to the masses in India, Burma, Africa and the Middle East.
In Europe, there is peace and harmony not only with itself but with the rest of the world. The Soviet Union, crippled by war losses, is divided up.
Around ten years after the end of the war, the British Empire, still under the leadership of Winston Churchill , becomes increasingly belligerent and anti-American , establishing "detention preserves" for disloyal Chinese in South Asia, and suspecting that the U.
Meanwhile, the US has ended racial discrimination by the s. Whites and Blacks are able to live and work shoulder by shoulder. These changes provoke tensions between the US and the UK, leading them to a Cold War for global hegemony between their two vaguely liberal, democratic, capitalist societies.
Although the end of the novel is never depicted in the text, one character claims the book ends with the British eventually defeating the U.
The acknowledgments have three references to traditional Japanese and Tibetan poetic forms; i volume one of the Anthology of Japanese Literature , edited by Donald Keene , from which is cited the haiku on page 48; ii from Zen and Japanese Culture , by Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki , from which is cited a waka on page ; and iii the Tibetan Book of the Dead , edited by Walter Evans-Wentz.
Nathanael West 's Miss Lonelyhearts  is also mentioned in the text,  : written before the Roosevelt assassination divergence separating the world of The Man in the High Castle from ours.
In this novella, "Miss Lonelyhearts" is a male newspaper journalist who writes anonymous advice as an agony aunt to forlorn readers during the height of the Great Depression; hence, "Miss Lonelyhearts" tries to find consolation in religion, casual sex, rural vacations, and work, none of which provide him with the sense of authenticity and engagement with the outside world that he needs.
West's book is about the elusive quality of relationships and quest for meaning at a time of political turmoil within the United States.
Philip Dick used the I Ching to make decisions crucial to the plot of The Man in the High Castle just as characters within the novel use it to guide decisions.
Kreuziger explores the theory of history implied by Dick's creation of the two alternative realities:.
Neither of the two worlds, however, the revised version of the outcome of WWII nor the fictional account of our present world, is anywhere near similar to the world we are familiar with.
But they could be! This is what the book is about. The book argues that this world, described twice, although differently each time, is exactly the world we know and are familiar with.
Indeed, it is the only world we know: the world of chance, luck, fate. Avram Davidson praised the novel as a "superior work of fiction", citing Dick's use of the I Ching as "fascinating".
Davidson concluded that "It's all here— extrapolation, suspense, action, art, philosophy, plot, [and] character. A trade paperback edition of the novel was published in by Vintage Books.
After a number of attempts to adapt the book to the screen, in October Amazon 's film production unit began filming the pilot episode of The Man in the High Castle in Roslyn, Washington , for release through the Amazon Prime Web video streaming service.
The television series diverges from the novel in many respects. Both the Pacific States of America and the Eastern American puppet state appear to be mere provinces of the Empire of Japan and the Greater Nazi Reich without any apparent autonomous even quisling government institutions.
As for Hitler, while elderly, he is apparently mostly hale in his Season 1 finale appearance, though other characters elsewhere in the season do refer to his supposed physical infirmity.
In the novel, the Italian Empire is a minor power that controls North Africa and the Middle East; in the series, it is shown through maps that these territories are part of the Nazi Empire, suggesting that either the Italian Empire was annexed after the war or is self-governing within the Reich.
The drying of the Mediterranean has never happened, though a slightly similar event is mentioned by a character in Season Two as being planned.
Characters from the book that do appear are in most cases far more fleshed out with deeper and sometimes rather different backstories than their novel originals.
Wegener is a Standartenführer in the Schutzstaffel SS , rather than a naval captain. Rather than being a member of an organized internal resistance and despite his relatively low rank Wegener is a confidante of Hitler and his disillusion with the regime appears to be largely personal.
Juliana and Frank are unmarried but living together, rather than divorced and separated. Frank has a sister, nephew and niece, although they are killed early in the series and this propels him into a more active role in relation to the resistance.
Juliana also has a sister whose murder by the Kempeitai early in the season instigates her search for the mysterious Man in the High Castle, as well as her having a mother and stepfather who are significant supporting characters.
Joe Cinnadella is renamed "Joe Blake" though he uses his novel name and backstory while undercover in Season 3 , as he becomes closer to Juliana, appears to have growing doubts about his role as a Nazi agent.
Robert Childan starts season 1 as a minor character but later becomes a main protagonist, starting a trade in the Pacific States and in the Neutral Zone, while Ed McCarthy has a rather more prominent and active role, being revealed as homosexual in Season 3.
There are several major additional characters introduced by the television series and numerous narrative details and plot elements differ radically from the source novel.
The planned Nazi nuclear attack on Japan, "Operation Dandelion", is apparently being prevented only by Hitler's refusal to authorize it, leading Heydrich and the pro-Dandelion faction to plot the Führer's assassination.
Hawthorne Abendsen does not appear in the first season of the television version and The Grasshopper Lies Heavy is a series of newsreel films depicting multiple alternative realities rather than a novel although this idea may be borrowed from Dick's later novel, VALIS , which features a mysterious film depicting yet another dystopian alternative history of the United States.
As of the Season 1 finale, these films are being tracked down by SS agents like Blake for dispatch to Hitler for an unknown purpose.
In season two, a map of the world is shown on John Smith's wall. On this map, Japan controls the entirety of the Pacific Ocean and most of the Asian continent, including China, India and half of Russia.
There are also buffer zones between the empires; Neither empire seems to have invaded Mexico and this neutral zone continues up through the Rockies and through Canada.
A similar neutral zone is seen dividing Russia in two. Season two also shows the different lives in the Japanese-controlled Pacific states and the German-controlled east.
The Germans have colonized the eastern states and are assimilating its inhabitants into Nazi beliefs.
