Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

Describe the connection between Tracy and Dexter and how it developed from the beginning of the play to the conclusion. Why is the ending so effective in illustrating their connection? What does their relationship prove to Tracy and how does it reinforce what she is learning? Has Dexter changed at all during the play in order to reestablish the connection? If so, in what ways? Most importantly, how does their marriage at the end complete Tracy's journey and make her "human?" What does that really mean for her and why is it an important part of her happiness?

Essay Topic 2

In your opinion, what were the 3 events that impacted Tracy's transformation the most? Describe them in detail, including which characters they involved and why. Also, use the play to explain why you chose those events as the most meaningful.

Essay Topic 3

What is Dinah and Tracy's relationship? How is it depicted in the beginning of the play? Describe what Dinah does to cause Tracy to remember the events of the night before with Mike. How does it alert some of the other characters to those events and contribute to the possible doubt of the pending marriage? Why was it necessary to establish Tracy and Dinah's interaction with one another early, and how does it prepare the audience for Dinah's part in revealing the information about Tracy and Mike's evening? Why do you think the author chooses Dinah to be the messenger for this information?
