Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:
Essay Topic 1
Mrs. Moore rises above the religious conflict and sets an example for how all of them might come together and live in peace. She is eventually venerated by the Hindus, and Aziz, a Muslim, never fails to admire her and hold her example up for himself and others. Do you think this worshiping of Mrs. Moore is fair? Why or why not? How does Mrs. Moore support or go against this ideal that has been developed?
Essay Topic 2
Aziz shows Fielding a photograph of his wife, going against the Muslim tradition of "purdah" in which a woman cannot show her face to men outside of her family. Why does Aziz choose to show Fielding this picture? How is this significant?
Essay Topic 3
One conflict that Forster has set up is between religions. Aziz is Muslim and does not understand or feel comfortable with either Hindu or Christian. 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?
