Essay Topic 2

The book ends, as it began, with a conflict between good and evil. Thrawn and Pallaeon ambush the shipyards and, soon, everyone is caught up in a battle. Based on that concept, answer any one of the following questions. Be sure to use examples from several points in the book, as well as real life, in your answers.

1. Do you believe that war is sometimes justified or do you think that there is always a peaceful way out of a disagreement?

2. Do you believe that good always triumphs over evil?

3. Do you believe that all is fair in love and war?

4. Do you believe that there is always a concrete right side and wrong side in a war?

Essay Topic 3

In the book, the empire is identified as evil and the rebellion, which later became the New Republic, is identified as good. Do you believe that people who evil, like Thrawn, always know that they are evil? In other words, might Thrawn and Pallaeon genuinely think that they are justified and that they are actually good, or would they agree that they are evil, but choose to act that way anyway? Be sure to use examples from both the book and real life to explain whether or not good and evil can be based on perspective.
