Transcript of The Tenth Circle
Jason Underhill The Third Circle: themes Isolation The Fourth Circle: symbols The First Circle: Inspired by Dante's Inferno and the nine circles of hell The Title Escape Pain Dante's Inferno The Tenth Circle Comic The Bridge The Fifth Circle: motifs Animals Ghosts Blood The Sixth Circle: The focus of my paper Choice What motivates the choices people make? How do consciousness and human emotion relate to choice? Important Topics Search for Self "It made her wonder if you could know a person only at a single moment in time, because a year from now or a day from now, he might be different. It made her wonder if
everyone reinvented himself or herself, if that was as natural as other animals shedding skin" (Picoult 344). The Seventh Circle: The Eight Circle: "That one word, spoken or not, didn't make Jason any less guilty of taking something Trixie hadn't wanted to give. It didn't make her any less foolish. All it did was draw a line in the sand, so that the people who hadn't been there to witness it [...] could take sides" (Picoult 373). Date Rape In 2004, more than 200,000 sexual assault claims were filed Statistic from the United States Department of Justice Of the reported rapes from that same year, 5.5% were false Statistic from the FBI "Recently, the few girls who cry wolf have provoked an even scarier trend: Judges who prosecute the girl simply because she can't prove she was raped" -Khidekel "Semantics didn't matter when [...] you felt like you'd been broken from the inside out, when free will was taken away from you" (Picoult 375). The Ninth Circle: "Everyone always said that the best relationships between parents and kids involved open communication, but Trixie knew that was a joke. The best relationships were the ones where both sides went out of their way to make sure the other wasn't disappointed" (Picoult 43). Parental Control "A child's job, ostensibly, was to grow up. So why, when it happened, did a parent feel so disappointed?" (Picoult 370). The Tenth Circle: How does this novel relate to the human condition? "What makes human beings more than mere things is out ability to choose freely what type of lives to lead and the right to have our choices respected" (McLean) Free will fundamentally defines humans as a species All human emotion arises from the choices we make and the ramifications of those choices "Of all the liars in the world, sometimes the worst are our own fears" -Rudyard Kipling Snow A novel by Jodi Picoult Presentation by Jenna Zhang
