Essay Topics

Essay Topic 1

In the book, is it significant that it is an Anglo female saying that she was attacked by an Indian male? How would the book be different if it was an Indian woman accusing a white man? What role does race play in the trial and the events preceding it?

Essay Topic 2

Fielding is not well accepted in the Christian community, not because of his lack of faith, but because of his disapproval of their attitudes and behaviors, which clearly violate Christian teachings. What place does this irony have in the novel? Why do you think Fielding, as an atheist, is set up as the only one who embodies Christian values?

Essay Topic 3

However, he does admire Professor Godbole, who, although he is of a superior caste and would be expected to look down on everyone else, is kind and friendly. What other examples of religious conflict contribute to the feeling of the novel? How do these religious conflicts compare to other conflicts in the novel?
