The Dew Breaker
The Dew Breaker-Discussion Prompt #1
What do you find most interesting, most important in the initial chapter-with its description of the father/daughter relationship and the Dew Breaker’s destroying of his daughter’s sculpture of him? What themes do you see, imagine, or anticipate being developed as the novel progresses?
The Dew Breaker-Discussion Prompt #2
What do you make of the “Water Child” chapter? What do Nadine’s various relationships (with her parents, with the man who fathered her aborted child, with the “voiceless” patient) mean for her, for the themes you see Danticat developing?
The Dew Breaker-Discussion Prompt #3
Post your own reaction to Danticat’s novel here. It can be in the form of reacting to a particular line, scene, or passage. It can identify and discuss an idea or theme you view as crucial to our understanding of the novel as a whole or a particular story line within it (i.e. shame, guilt, forgiveness, redemption, memory, vengeance). It can be a question that you’d like us to answer. If you’re choosing this last option, post the beginnings of how you’d answer your own question.
