Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

Consider Félicité's relationship with her sister and her sister's family. Taking into account both their treatment of her and hers of them, what do Félicité's relationships with her family tell us about her character? Be sure to include her relationships with both Victor and her sister.

Essay Topic 2

Analyze the symbolism and meaning of Félicité's final vision. You should draw on passages from earlier in the novel to interpret the final vision. You should definitely consider the symbolism of the parrot. You might also consider the role that Loulou played in Félicité's life, her relationship to religion, her conception of the divine that is receiving her, the procession of Corpus Christi that is occurring as she has her vision, or any other things that you believe to be relevant.

Essay Topic 3

Throughout the story, Félicité assumes a maternal role in several of her relationships. The most prominent examples are Virginie, Victor, and Loulou, but there are, arguably, other examples. Choose at least three people (or animals) that Félicité develops a maternal affection for and compare them. How does this comparison reflect on Félicité? Does there seem to be a larger message implicit in this theme?
