3. Compare/contrast Mat and Perrin. How are they alike? How are they different? Are they both protagonists? Antagonists? Or? Are they likable characters? How critical are they to the plot of "A Crown of Swords"? Who do you like the most of the two? Why? Do you think they each are critical to the success of "A Crown of Swords"?

Essay Topic 2

Several of the Forsaken appear in "A Crown of Swords". Discuss the following:

1. Who are the Forsaken and what do you think is their role in the Wheel of Time series (you should be able to figure this out through what is said in "A Crown of Swords").

2. Compare/contrast the Forsaken with those in power that are supposedly on the "good" side--such as the Aes Sedai, the Whitecloaks and some Aiel.

3. Discuss the implications of Nynaeve being able to capture Moghedien and Rand having Asmodean to heel.

Essay Topic 3

Traveling in the Wheel of Time series evolves, a phenomenon that also helps the book's pacing. First, Rand and the others travel by foot and horse; then the "Ways" are introduced, which significantly cuts down on the time it takes to get from one point to another. In "A Crown of Swords", Rand uses a portal stone for travel across vast distances; however, one must first walk to a portal stone, so the travel cannot be said to be instantaneous. Finally, in a later book, a technique called "Traveling" is introduced where a doorway is magically "sliced" into the air and one can instantly be where s/he wants to go. Discuss the following:

1. What is the advantage of having the characters travel by horse and foot across long distances requiring significant amounts of time? What are the disadvantages?

2. How is the plot affected when the ability to travel from point A to point B is drastically reduced? Give examples from the book.

3. How would one or two scenes in "A Crown of Swords" be affected if Rand or any other channeling individual could not instantly move from one place to another?
