Essay Topic 2
Cammie considers, and acts on, her actions in pursuit of freedom. Here it's important to note that throughout the novel, she has described herself as feeling trapped, as feeling the same way as she imagines the ravens feel, trapped as they are in the Tower of London. The thematic consideration of identity becomes entwined with considerations of freedom, in that up to this point in her life, Cammie's identity has been defined by the fact that she is trapped. With her actions in Chapters 41 and 46, she is taking action to fundamentally re-define her identity, and claim a sense of self.
1. Discuss the reasons you think Cammie feels trapped in her life. Use examples from Only the Good Spy Young and your own life to support your answer.
2. Do you think Cammie's identity is only formed by her feelings of being trapped? Why or why not? Use examples from Only the Good Spy Young and your own life to support your answer.
3. Cammie seems to be wanting freedom from her life. What do you think Cammie believes freedom means and how do you think she might be able to obtain freedom? Use examples from Only the Good Spy Young and your own life to support your answer.
