Essay Topics

Coincidence in life is one thing, but coincidence in literature and storytelling is another. The general rule that most writers learn is that it's safe to use coincidence in a story when the result is to get the hero into trouble, or into more trouble than he or she is already in. If the writer succumbs to the temptation to use coincidence to get the hero out of trouble, or to serve the necessities of the plot, the reader's enjoyment diminishes because the natural skeptic in the reader says, "this isn't plausible."

2. Do you think this statement is true? Why or why not?

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?

In an epic story like STAR WARS THE PHANTOM MENACE, it is expected that large forces will clash on a grand scale, and that the forces will represent an alignment of Good on one side, and of Evil on the other.

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

2. Do you think in any group of people all of the members are either evil or good? Why or why not?

3. Describe a situation in the 21st. Century that you think represents an alignment of Good on one side, and of Evil on the other.
