Essay Topic 1

Choose one of the following to discuss:

1. Compare/contrast Rand and Mat. How are they alike? How are they different? Are they both protagonists? Antagonists? Or? Are they likable characters? How critical are they to the plot of "Winter's Heart"? Whom do you like the most of the two? Why? Do you think they each are critical to the success of "Winter's Heart"?

2. Compare/contrast Rand and Perrin. How are they alike? How are they different? Are they both protagonists? Antagonists? Or are they likable characters? How critical are they to the plot of "Winter's Heart"? Whom do you like the most of the two? Why? Do you think they each are critical to the success of "Winter's Heart"?

3. Compare/contrast Mat and Perrin. How are they alike? How are they different? Are they both protagonists? Antagonists? Or are they likable characters? How critical are they to the plot of "Winter's Heart"? Whom do you like the most of the two? Why? Do you think they each are critical to the success of "Winter's Heart"?

Essay Topic 2

One of the prophesies about the Dragon Reborn is that Aes Sedai will swear loyalty to the Dragon Reborn, which happens in an earlier book, "Lord of Chaos". Rand hates being told what he needs to do by Aes Sedai who cite prophecy.

Discuss the following: Trace and analyze the occurrences of prophesy in "Winter's Heart". Many fantasy novels include some "prophesy" in their storyline. Why do you think this is? Do you think Rand knowing about the prophesies about him will help him? How could it hinder him? How does knowing prophesy in any book (or real life) perhaps make it become "self-fulfilling"?

Essay Topic 3

Whom do you think Rand trusts in this book and is his trust well founded? Whom does he mistrust and why? Give specific examples. Rand supports Mazrim Taim in opening a school for men who can channel.

Discuss one of the following:

1. Thoroughly describe and analyze the school for men who can channel and discuss if you think the school is necessary for Rand's goals. Is it wise to train men who can channel knowing that saidin is tainted and many if not all, men go insane after regularly using the One Power. Take a stance and defend it with examples.

2. How does Rand's foresight in granting amnesty to men who can channel and setting up the school influence the action in "Winter's Heart"? How do Rand and other major characters use men who can channel in "Winter's Heart"?

3. What do you think will be the impact of Rand cleansing saidin at the end of "Winter's Heart" in forthcoming books in the series?
