Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

Mariko then suggests again that Joanna visit her uncle and undergo hypnosis. This is the third time Mariko has mentioned this option, foreshadowing that it would become an avenue Joanna would travel.

1. What do you think a psychiatrist can do to help someone with nightmares?

2. Would you go to a psychiatrist for help with a recurring nightmare?

3. Why do you think many people resist the idea of seeing a psychiatrist? Do you think Joanna is one of those people? Or is it perhaps part of the brainwashing that she has been through?

Essay Topic 2

Joanna encourages Mariko to explore a relationship with Wayne despite the Japanese mindset that is against these types of relationships.

1. After doing research on Japanese culture and women, discuss the ways in which Mariko adheres to gender expectations and ways in which she doesn't.

2. The Japanese culture is against any relationship which involves a Japanese person and a person of another ethnic race or culture. Why do you think a culture would evolve such a stricture? Do you think that informal expectation has changed with the shrinking of the world through the internet and easy travel between parts of the world?

3. Discuss why you believe Mariko should follow her heart and not her culture. Use examples from the text to support your answer.

Essay Topic 3

Under further regression, Joanna also reveals that all her memories of Lisa Chelgrin are gone and that she will most likely never recover them. The completeness of this brainwashing should be frightening to the reader, showing how vulnerable Lisa Chelgrin was and how violating Herr Doktor was toward her, both physically and mentally.

1. What do you think is the emotional impact of finding out you are not who you thought you were? Use examples from the text and your own life to support your answer.

2. Discuss in depth the moral and legal implications of what Herr Doktor did to Lisa. Use examples from the text and your own life to support your answer.

3. It would be one thing to find out you were a different person than you thought you were. What would be the farther impact on Lisa of finding out that not only was she a different person than she thought but that her early memories are completely gone so she'll never know exactly who she was?
