Essay Topic 1

Burrich tells Fitz to quit sulking and start acting like a man. He tells Fitz to comb his hair change his clothes and act like she might be watching him. Burrich also reminds him that part of being a man is to accept the daunting task given to you and to live up to it and then some.

1. Discuss why this advice might be applicable to a woman or a man.

2. Burrich telling Fitz to act like a man might be considered the same as telling someone in this society to grow up. Discuss the differences and similarities between the two ideas using examples to support your answer.

Essay Topic 2

One of the common elements of fantasy is the presence of some sort of magic. Discuss the following:

1. What sort of cultural problems do you think the United States would have if it were suddenly discovered that 1% of its population possessed magical abilities similar to the Wit or the Skill?

3. Would you want to part of the 1% of the population that possesses magical abilities? Why or why not?

4. Do you think most people would use their magical abilities for good or evil? Explain.

Essay Topic 3

Fitz cannot seem to resist Molly. One would think it was "true love" yet he is told he may not marry her.

1. How would you react if you were told at a very early age who you would marry? Would you be willing to obey your parents knowing that there is very little future for an unmarried woman.

2. Even though women have been controlled as far as marriage for centuries, some men are just as "stuck" with an unwanted marriage partner as a women--these are usually nobles who must marry to keep or raise the standing of their families. If you are a man and are told who you would marry and you found that person quite unacceptable, would you give up money and position to defy your parents?

3. Why do you think forced marriages are occurring less and less often even in countries where woman are still quite oppressed?
