Essay Topic 1
In this text, the sacred is frequently paired with the worldly. This is certainly true in FÃ©licitÃ©'s room and in her religious impressions, but there are also traces of it elsewhere. Where else can you see this mix of the religious and the secular? What do you think Flaubert might have meant by it? Be sure to support your analysis with specific examples from the text.
Essay Topic 2
Compare and contrast the deaths of Victor and Virginie. What does each mean to FÃ©licitÃ©? In what ways are the events the same and in what ways are they different? Why do you think that both deaths are included? What is the thematic impact of having these two deaths so close together that mirror each other in several critical ways?
Essay Topic 3
Consider the tone of the narrator in this story. Does the narrative guide your interpretations of events or is it a neutral voice? If you argue that it does, how? If you argue that it doesn't, how does it avoid commentary?
