Essay Topic 1
Whenever reading a science fiction or fantasy novel, one must become familiar with new terminology that explains concepts or technology that is not a part of the "real" world. In the case of Wicked Lovely, much of the setting is familiar to the reader, though there are new ideas and terms to learn. Discuss the following:
1. Find five terms that are a part of "Wicked Lovely's" world that occur in the "real" world but are used differently in "Wicked Lovely". Define the words as used in "Wicked Lovely" and compare those five words as to how they are currently used in the American English language.
2. There are ways of learning about a new world or time when reading a science fiction or fantasy novel. Discuss the ways you were able to understand the world of "Wicked Lovely". Did you have to look up any words? What does it mean to learn a word through its context? Do you have to do that in "Wicked Lovely"? What word(s)?
4. Were there any words you never really understood in this book? Which ones? How can you learn the meaning of those words?
