Essay 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

The procession of Corpus Christi recurs in this story and is a critical aspect of the imagery in the final chapter. In what ways does the significance of this particular celebration relate to the important themes in this story? You should definitely consider how it might mirror Félicité's understanding of religion, but you may also consider and discuss any other relationships that strike you. Be sure to refer to specific examples from the text in your analysis.

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?
