Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

Little Bee goes out of her way to look after young Charlie. In fact, at different times in the book, she is willing to sacrifice her own needs and desires to save him. Why might Little Bee connect so strongly with Charlie? What is it about him that she relates too? Do you think that Little Bee truly cares for Charlie? Why or why not?

Provide examples from the text to support your answers.

Essay Topic 2

The antagonist in a story is not always an obvious "bad guy". The oil men are obvious antagonist, but what about Sarah's lover Lawrence? Would you classify Lawrence as antagonist (someone whom the hero/heroine struggles against) or would you classify him as a protagonist (someone helpful to the hero/heroine)?

Choose either antagonist or protagonist (no in between). Use examples from the text to support your answer.

Essay Topic 3

It is very obvious that Lawrence dislikes Little Bee. He takes every opportunity to try to bully the girl into turning herself in. He also tries hard to get Sarah to make Little Bee leave.

1) Why do you think Lawrence dislikes Little Bee? What are some reasons he might want Sarah and Little Bee kept apart?

2) Do you feel that Lawrence should be entitled to an opinion on Little Bee and Sarah's relationship? Why or why not?

Provide examples from the text to support your answers.
