Essay Topic 1

One night Madelyne watches from her window as Duncan dives into the frosty waters of the nearby lake. It's also on that night that she first sees a large wolf on the hill near the castle.

What words does the author use to make Duncan seem wolf-like? Why does the novel end with Madelyne being saved from Louddon by the wolf? Compare and contrast Duncan with the wolf, both figuratively and literally. Provide examples from the book to support your conclusions.

Essay Topic 2

What does the author tell us about Morcar? What is his effect on the other characters in the novel, especially Adela, Madelyne, Duncan and Gerald? What does Duncan learn from Gerald's fight with Morcar on the battlefield? Why is Morcar in the novel? What part does he play in the romantic relationships in the novel, and in particular, the relationship between Madelyne and Duncan? What, if anything, does the author tell the reader about the consequences of evil deeds? Pick three ways that the author uses the character of Morcar to advance some aspect of the story. Provide examples from the novel to support your argument.

Essay Topic 3

During the novel, we find out that Madelyne experiences a difficult childhood and her life does not improve as long as she is under the thumb of Louddon. Yet throughout the novel, Madelyne's typical response to a difficulty is to show mercy, sometimes to a complete stranger. How and to whom does Madelyne show mercy? In particular, why does she show mercy to Duncan? How does Madelyne's merciful behavior affect Duncan and his brothers? Compare and contrast the the experience that Madelyne has with receiving mercy and giving mercy.
