Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

Again Anakin has what seem to be prophetic dreams, but this time the dreams have a foreboding element to them. Anakin sees himself older, in a strange place facing a dimly seen wave that moves toward him, led by Padmy who appears to be older and sad.

1. What do you think this dream means? Use examples from the book to support your answer.

2. Write about a dream you or someone else you know had that seemed to have come true.

3. Do you think dreams mean anything in a person's life? Why or why not?

Essay Topic 2

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.

Essay Topic 3

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?
