Gods Go Begging by Alfredo Vea

Paper Topic: Analyze TWO different spaces (Ghetto, Prison, War). Choose A or B for the focus of your paper. If you are interested in another aspect of the novel and to make up your own paper topic please let me know.

A) Violence: How does violence come to take the place of love, expression, and creativity? How does poverty create aberrant conditions from which little can survive and grow? What happens when the trauma of the character’s lives becomes normal? How does this trauma reproduce itself not only in the life of one person but throughout the community? How does the novel end? Is there any promise in the ending or are the characters caught in this cycle of trauma and death?
