Essay Topic 1
Pretend you are an outsider that has recently moved to the town. Which area of town would you like to live in -- and why? Who would be your friends? With your outsider's perspective, what advice would you give to Kino and his village? What changes to the pearl buying structure could you recommend to the town to make it a more fair transaction for the divers, while also giving the pearl buyers a better opportunity to advance on their own without fear of a boss?
Essay Topic 2
At one point in the novel, the villagers pretend what they would do if they had the great pearl. All of their hypothetical situations involve charity or helping other people. How does this contrast to Kino and his dreams? Do you think their dreams are truly what they would do if they had the pearl? How do their hypothetical dreams versus Kino's announced goals put a tension between him and his village?
Essay Topic 3
