Essay Topic 1
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 2
In the novel, the heat is mentioned on multiple occasions. For example, during the trial, every action and emotion is influenced by the extreme heat, especially since the courtroom is filled with multiple people, and there is obviously no air conditioning. How does the heat affect the general feeling of the novel? Give examples of how the heat serves as a metaphor for other events in the novel.
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?
