Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

The Seanchan are a people from across the seas who have returned as prophesied for the Last Battle. Rather than honoring women who can channel, they enslave them and consider them animals.

Discuss the following: Discuss and analyze the Seanchan attitude about men and women who can channel. What happens to men who can channel? Women who can channel? Do you think it is just for the Seanchan to enslave women who can channel? What is hypocritical about what the Seanchan do with women who can channel? Why are the Seanchan bent on conquering this continent?

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

Discuss one of the following:

1. Trace and analyze the theme of power throughout "Winter's Heart". What are symbols of the theme? Who is most powerful? Least powerful? Does power rest in the hands of both good and evil characters? Do the "good" characters always use power in a beneficial way?

2. Trace and analyze the theme of magic throughout "Winter's Heart". What are the properties of magic? Can anyone wield magic? What are the limitations of magic? Is magic considered a positive or negative attribute? Or does it depend upon who is using magic?

3. Trace and analyze the theme of evil throughout "Winter's Heart". Who are evil? Is is always clear? Are evil people always evil? Do "good" people ever do "evil" actions? How do evil characters hide among those fighting for the good?
