Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:
Essay Topic 1
The play is broken down into two Acts, each having its own climax. Discuss the climax point of each play and how it is built up. Where does the climax, or highpoint, of Act 1 and Act 2 occur? Why is it the climax? In each case, what effect do the scenes before and after the climax have on this point? What would you say is the climax of the novel? Discuss the events that are happening at this point. What do we learn in the play through the climax events and how do they ultimately affect the resolution of the play and the characters? Use examples from the play to support your answer.
Essay Topic 2
Discuss the desires of the women at the beginning of the play. How do the women express their desires and wishes? How do these wishes come about? How do these wishes define their characters? Are the wishes of these women characters fulfilled? Support your reasoning with examples from the play.
Essay Topic 3
There is a thematic point in the play, perhaps the most important, that "life should be enjoyed for what it is since death comes too soon and a life spent dreaming is a life wasted." How does this thematic point apply to the play? Where does it come into play? Do the characters learn this point by the end of the play? Why is this point so relevant even to people in real life?
