Essay Topic 1
Pavlo's wish to become "bone" is repeated twice in this short play. Theorize on the metaphorical implications of these two moments, comparing the similarities and differences between them and finally giving explanation as to the importance of these two situations occurring for Pavlo's character.
Essay Topic 2
Pavlo seems to have had dysfunctional relationships with all of his family members and quite possibly his ex-girfriend with whom his mother at one point interfered, as Pavlo referred to in Act 1, Part 3. Using each family member as a starting point for each paragraph, make a hypothesis about how each of these relationships with his family members has affected his personal outlook, thus leading him to join the army for a better life.
Essay Topic 3
