Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

Anakin has a unique relationship with Padmy. She is a mother figure, which is seen clearly when she holds him in her arms to soothe his deep sorrow at being parted from his mother. She is also a sister figure, and a potential romantic figure, as evidenced by the feelings he has for her that would rightly be described as "puppy love," but which, with his limited experience of life, he cannot identify.

1. What do you think is meant by this statement? Use examples from the book to support your answer.

2. Describe a person in your life who seems to fill more than one "role."

3. Do you think a person can fulfill more than one "role" in a person's life, such as brother, friend, father, mentor, etc. Why or why not?

Essay Topic 2

Then Qui-Gon tells the Council about Anakin and suggests that this boy may be the prophesied one who will bring balance to the force.

1. Do you believe in fate or destiny? Why or why not?

2. Since it is common knowledge that Anakin becomes a dark force how do you think that coincides with the prophesy that he will bring balance to the force?

3. Do you think good has to be balanced with evil, light with dark? Why or why not?

Essay Topic 3

The author has laden an insight about life that underlies many of the thematic threads of The Phantom Menace - the fact that exterior appearance does not necessarily indicate the intrinsic value of human beings, and in the case of science fiction, alien life forms as well.

1. What do you think is meant by this statement? Use examples from the book to support your answer.

2. Describe a time when you or someone you know of, has thought one thing about a person and then was proven wrong after getting to know the person.

3. How does the statement above relate to the clique "you can't tell a book by its cover?"
