Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:
Essay Topic 1
When Fitz returns to his room the Fool is still waiting. He tells Fitz where he comes from and then tells him that the reason he came to the kingdom is because of Fitz. The Fool knows the future and tells Fitz the Forged ones and those that create them will cover the land if Fitz' family falls. Fitz's family name is Farseer and the Fool tells Fitz the name was chosen for them because of Fitz. Fitz demands that the Fool leave and that he doesn't want to hear anymore.
1. Why do you the Fool acts the way he does if he is a prophet and can see the future? Use examples from the book and your own reasoning to support your opinion.
2. Why do you think Fitz doesn't want to hear about what the Fool sees as his role in history? Use examples from the book and your own reasoning to support your opinion.
3. In view of the fact that Fitz is basically a teenager at this time do you think his reaction to what the Fool said would be different if he was ten years older? Why or why not?
Essay Topic 2
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?
Essay Topic 3
Kettricken doesn't act the way she is expected to in the court but this is beginning to prove to be a help rather than a hindrance.
1. Do you think Kettricken is acting too much like a male for this type of society? Why?
2. Using examples from the text, discuss ways in which Kettricken may be alienating people who expect different behavior from a queen.
3. Discuss a parallel between Kettricken's behavior and one of the first ladies in USA who the public said was overly involved or assertive, e.g. Eleanor Roosevelt, Hilary Clinton, etc.
