I was going to do this with notes in front of me but I am being compelled *evil glare at France*. This will pick up where notes from 9/8/04 left off...
...We then turned to the chapter A Question of Moral.
In this chapter Titus is having dinner with his family and Violet.
What do you notice about the interaction between Titus and his parents? Does this seem like a typical parent/child relationship to you?
I'd also like you to notice how they deal with everything from dinner. They throw out all the plates, the table, the chairs, ect. Titus lives in a world where everything is made to be disposable.
How do you think this effects Titus's appreciation for life and everything in it? Do you think this will later become a vital point in his relationship with Violet? Is love just another disposable thing in this society(remember to look at ALL the relationships, not just Titus and Violet)?
