Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:
Essay Topic 1
The Marabar caves are an essential component in the setting for this story. Whereas in Chandrapore we can see graphically the cultural levels with the British living on a tier above the other residents, the caves represent a complex spiritual force that will blast the action to its climax. Explain how the caves serve as a character in the play. What is the role of the caves? How are the caves personified? How do the caves affect different characters?
Essay Topic 2
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?
Essay Topic 3
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?
