Chap 17 themes peter rabbit homophone quiz

  1. 1. Agenda  What we are doing in class:  Homophone Quiz  Themes in HotS HOMEWORK:  mid-book test on Monday  Vocab  Grammar  Reading: literary themes, comprehension
  2. 2. Quiz on Homophones  Get out a pen.
  3. 3. Themes in HotS  ReligionReligion plays a HUGEpart in HotS:  St. Francis of Assisi  The Virgin  Heaven/Hell  Souls
  4. 4. Themes  Good v. Evil  El Patron is compared to ―twisted branches‖ and ―a tree that shades over all others‖  When Matt is accused of lying – he is compared to a ―rat in the sewer‖
  5. 5. Themes Identity (Matt) Most people shun him, thinking of him as being ―dirty‖, and those who do choose to associate with him generally think of him as inferior minded. He does not feel like a true individual because society sees him as just a copy of someone else, harvested instead of born, as treats him accordingly. He also feels pressure from El Patron, the infamous drug lord who created him, to adopt his manner of living, which is selfish and sinister.
  6. 6. Themes  The Impact of Friendship Those who choose to befriend Matt, such as Celia, Tam Lin and Maria, often treat him as an inferior being; however, their association gives him hope and helps him to rise above his situation.
  7. 7. Themes  The Value of Life It raises questions surrounding the ethics of cloning and whether or not the lives of these clones are valuable, and presents the problem of the ethics of cloning for the purpose of extending one’s life, as El Patron does. The value of life is also addressed with the lives the Opium slaves lead (eejits).
  8. 8. Themes  Hypothetical Outcomes of War and Drugs The desire for power and the need for drugs leads to thousands of people and animals being transformed into eejits—mindless slaves—and causes the rest of the population to live in fear. The novel raises questions concerning the outcome of a border war with Mexico and poses the question of what would happen if drug trafficking and production were not only legalized but became a way of life.
