Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

Félicité's relationship with Theodore seems relatively minor in the context of the overall narrative. Why do you think Flaubert chose to include it? How does knowing that about Félicité alter our perception of her throughout the rest of the story? You should discuss at least three ways in which our perception of Félicité is affected by her failed relationship with Theodore.

Essay Topic 2

The scene of Félicité's death juxtaposes her personal experience and a very public religious celebration. Consider why Flaubert chose to represent her death in this context. How does the procession impact the way we read and understand Félicité's passing?

Essay Topic 3

Compare and contrast Mme. Aubain and Félicité's reactions to Virginie's death. How do their reactions fit in with their characters in general?
