Essay Topic 1
By Act 1, Scene 2, we have some indications that Harvey may not be a figment of Elwood's imagination. Select two other characters from the play who also have some level of interaction with Harvey (seeing, hearing, etc.) and explain why this is significant within the context of the play. How does each of these characters react to learning about Harvey? Do you think they accept their newly revealed knowledge or not?

In much of the play, Elwood carries around a raincoat and hat, even though he is wearing a raincoat and hat. What does this say about Elwood as a person? Why would he do such a thing? Please support your thesis from the text.
