Essay Topics

Essay Topic 1

Why does the King choose Don Diegue to tutor his son, rather than Don Gomes? Do you agree with this choice? Discuss experience vs. skill, as the best quality for a tutor to possess.

Essay Topic 2

A cornerstone of democracy is the right of all citizens to question their government, and to protest or overturn laws when an injustice exists. In a monarchy, however, such as the one in "Le Cid", the people do not have such rights. In "Le Cid", a sense of honor causes some characters to act against the wishes of the King. Which characters come to mind, in this regard? Is it possible, by the end of the play, for those characters to balance personal honor against an obligation to honor the King's wishes?

Essay Topic 3

If Don Gomes is chosen to tutor the King's son rather than Don Diegue, how does the play progress differently? Is there still a duel between Don Gomes and Don Diegue? If so or if not, how does this outcome affect Don Rodrigue, Chimene, and the Infanta?
