Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:
Essay Topic 1
Despite Candy's desire to succeed in a man's world, her ultimate goal of breaking the corruption story was ultimately completed, after her death, by Spenser. What message is the author trying to send about women in the story? How do this character's actions, and her reliance on and use of the men in the story, affect that theme?
Essay Topic 2
Ambition seems to fuel many elements of A Savage Place. Candy's ambition, in particular, to succeed at her job seems to lead her to her death. How would the story be different if Candy's main motivation was to right a wrong, rather than to pursue her career?
Essay Topic 3
Morality in A Savage Place is often shown in shades of gray rather than in black and white. Compare Spenser and Candy in regards to having a strong sense of morals. Discuss how their morality differs, if they stand up for what they believe in, and how these things impact their lives in the novel.
