Essay Topic 1
Pathos is an emotional response to a text. Hippolyte and the blind beggar both embody tragic characteristics and are characters that should inspire much pathos in the reader, however in the way they are presented, they often do not. Do you see these two characters as sympathetic? Why or why not? Specifically note how they are described in the text. What do you think is Flaubert's purpose in describing them this way?

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?
Essay Topic 3
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.
