Essay Topics

Essay Topic 1

Characters in All My Sons make frequent reference to the supernatural in the play, as if there were an otherworldly hand guiding their daily actions. Write an essay in the following three parts:

Part 1) Examine how the destruction of Larry's tree - and the dream that surrounds its destruction - affects Kate Keller's world. What significance does she assign to it?

Part 2) What is Frank Lubey's world view, and how is it the result of the life he has lived to this point in his life?

Part 3) What does Jim Bayliss have to say about the nature of fate and the stars in the third act? How is it a refutation of the ideas of both Frank Lubey and Kate Keller?

Essay Topic 2

Write an essay in three parts regarding three of these characters and how his day-to-day life bolsters and challenges his beliefs:

Part 1) Frank Lubey

Part 2) Jim Bayliss

Part 3) George Deever

Essay Topic 3
