Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

At the beginning of the book, Bridget writes that Daniel is a playboy. As the book progresses, Bridget runs into more and more women whom Daniel has hurt and forgotten. In July, Bridget realizes that Daniel has been cheating on her with Suki, a woman opposite of Bridget in every way.

Analyze Daniel's participation in the relationship. Answer the following questions:

1) Considering Daniel's past - and present - interactions with women, why do you think he stays with Bridget for so long?

2) It becomes obvious that Daniel does not want to put in the effort required for a relationship, so why does he stay with Bridget?

3) Daniel eventually chooses Suki over Bridget. How is Suki a better fit for him?

4) Do you think Daniel ends up regretting his choice?

Essay Topic 2

As Bridget and Daniel become more involved in June, the reader begins to understand more of what Bridget expects in a relationship. Describe what Bridget's perfect relationship might look like. Remember to include evidence from the text to back up your thoughts. Is Bridget's 'perfect relationship' realistic?

Essay Topic 3

In many Western cultures, modern women are engaged in a debate about the merits of being a career mom versus a stay-at-home mom. Most women would agree that the role of mother is important, but many women feel it is their role in the workplace that provides personal fulfillment. The career mom versus stay-at-home mom issue is a recurrent one in "Bridget Jones's Diary."

Explain how this issue is treated by the author when:

1) Bridget attends Harry's birthday party.

2) Bridget's mum decides she needs a career.

3) Magda discusses her inability to leave Jeremy.

What is the author's opinion on the subject? How can you tell?
