Although Emma is very much a Victorian woman, her story could also take place in modern times. How might her situation in life be different if she was alive in the 21st century? What options may have been open to her as a modern woman that weren't in the time of the book? What situations would be the same?

Imagine Emma survived her overdose on arsenic. What do you imagine she would have done? How would she have explained her predicament to Charles and solved her financial problems? Would any of the townspeople or her family members come to her aid? Use examples from the novel to support your hypothesis.

Essay Topic 3

In many ways, Emma's love relationships and focus on shopping show us the indications of a manic or addictive personality. Provide examples from throughout the text that indicate this. Would you consider Emma to be an addict? Why or why not? Do you think Emma could have ever been helped? Explain why.
