Document Summary

Discuss the depiction of self-sacrifice in three texts from the course. Sacrifice occurs for different reasons and has different meanings in each of the three texts. : too broad, doesn"t allow you to compare the different reasons". Do: 1) find a specific angle, 2) pick an idea to argue against, and/or, 3) pose a question that has more than one possible answer, eg. the opposite may also be true, it can be argued either way. Eg. in peter pan, the children stay in neverland even though they know their mother would be worried because they know she will forgive them. Eg. in anne of green gables, gilbert sacrifices the avonlea school, Matthew has modeled that behaviour in her life. Eg. in the hunger games, peeta models self-sacrifice for katniss. Coraline: while it may be a book about children, it has an adult audience as well, the book addresses itself to adult guilt and worries about the demands of work.
