Essay Topics

Essay Topic 1

At the end of the book, Fielding and Aziz reignite their friendship, but they part knowing that they will not see each other again. How is this significant to the ending of the book? Why do you think Forster makes sure that the audience knows they do not meet again?

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

Throughout the book, Aziz regularly lies or misrepresents the facts. When he invites Fielding's guests to his house, he knows he cannot entertain them there. Later he tells Adela that she can come and visit his wife, but his wife is dead. Why do you think Forester chooses to represent this Indian character in this way? Does this characteristic take away from Aziz's likability as the main character of the book? Does it affect how you see the trial in the book?
