The narrator's and Marla's infatuation with death began much earlier than Fight Club. At one point in the narrator's life he thought he had cancer. The same goes for Marla, except she actually does have cancer. How is death significant to both of these characters' lives, but in different ways? How do they view death? Are their views similar, or different? Cite specific examples from the text to support your answer.
Essay Topic 2
The society that the narrator lives in is extremely similar to, if not the same, as the society that we live in today. True or false? Support your answer with specific examples from the text.
Essay Topic 3
Which character would prevail in our society: Tyler or the narrator? Why? Present your choice in a logical and clear thesis with supporting evidence from the text. Remember to use our society as the context and not the society in the book. Cite specific examples from the text. Bear in mind the character you do not choose and include a sound counter-argument to support your thesis.
