Essay Topic 1
Doing something because you are told you should is something that also factors into many characters' lives in this story. Morgaine is told she is to give her maidenhead during a ceremony, and she does so without question. How do you think you would have responded if you were told the same thing? What would you have done? Why or why not? Keep in mind that this "order" is coming from the high priestess of Avalon.
Essay Topic 2
Many characters in this story have affairs with others that they love because they are with others they do not love. Cite three examples where this happens in the story. Why do you think these affairs happen, beyond the feelings for the other person? What caused these affairs and how could they have been prevented? Could they have been prevented?
Essay Topic 3
Why is it that people need to choose the rightful heir to a throne? Does this system make sense to you in modern times? Why or why not? Wouldn't it make more sense to choose a king who has the qualities that are necessary, rather than the bloodline? Why do you think some cultures have continued this practice?
