The Godfather by Mario Puzo
The Godfather by Mario PuzoIn chapters 10 – 14, we see characters making decisions and taking action. By the time we finish chapter 14, we realize that Puzo is quite interested in the idea of free will — that is, to what degree people have control over their lives, or not.For journal #3, you will write three paragraphs, one based on each set of these chapters: 10 – 11; 12 -13; 14.For chapters 10 to 11, write how much you feel Michael is personally responsible for what he does. Is he his own man, or not? To what degree? What does the evidence show?For chapters 12 to 13, write how much you feel Johnny is personally responsible for what he does. Again, is he his own man, or not? To what degree? What does the evidence show?For chapter 14, write the same thing about Vito Corleone.In each paragraph, provide specific details to support your topic sentence (your claim about the level of that character’s personal responsibility). End each paragraph with a conclusion about how much control that character has over his destiny.
