Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

Yoda probes into the fatal flaw Anakin possesses - his susceptibility to fear. Yoda also crystallizes the reason that a Jedi must be completely free of fear when he proclaims that fear leads to the dark side, to anger and hate, and to suffering.

1. Do you think fear can be a harmful influence in a person's life? Why or why not?

2. Some say fear, not hate, is the opposite of love and that hate is simply the result of fear. Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Why?

3. It doesn't seem fair that Anakin can have so much going for him and is being judged for having fear, especially considering his age. Do you think Yoda is being petty? Why or why not?

Essay Topic 2

Now when the battle is about to begin and suspense and excitement need to be heightened, the author makes maximum use of separated lines of action, dividing the conflict into four parts. The chief advantage of this division of action is that at a high point in the action, the outcome of a critical conflict can be left unresolved in favor of a switch to a different line of action, thus continually escalating the suspense felt by a reader or an audience.

1. Do you think that separating the action does indeed escalate the tension? Why or why not?

2. Do you think it's confusing to divide the action into separate parts? Why or why not?

Essay Topic 3

"In this life you're often born one thing and die another. You don't have to accept that what you're given when you come in is all you'll have when you leave."

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

2. What do you want to be though you were not born that person?

3. What do you think you have to overcome in your life in order to leave the legacy you want?
