Essay Topic 1
At one point in the book Fielding claims, "I travel light." Does Fielding travel as light as he claims? What attachments does he have to the people and places around him that might affect his ability to "travel light"?
Essay Topic 2
Dr. Lal, Aziz's colleague, is portrayed as a self-serving, despicable game-player. His character provides a contrast to Fielding, who has done what is right regardless of cost to himself. Compare and contrast these two characters and describe how other characters fit into a continuum if Lal is placed on one end and Fielding on the other.
Essay Topic 3
In earlier versions of the book, Forster was much more explicit in the sexual aspects of the assault, and the strap of the field glasses was used to strangle Adela. In one version, she used the glasses as a weapon to free herself from her attacker. By the time Forster had revised the book for publication, the attack is much more ambiguous, tentative, and tenuous. What effect do you think Forster's edits have on the plot of the book? How would the plot of the book be different if he had not made these changes?
