Answer the two questions below with an informal essay of at least 200 words for each. Write a word count at the end of each response.
1. In the first three chapters of The Lathe of Heaven, there is a lot of foreshadowing (hints) that Haber and Orr are not going to have a good doctor-patient relationship. Discuss the main foreshadowing that you see for their relationship, directly quoting three specific passages.
2. As I mentioned in our last Zoom meeting, a paradox is a self-contradictory statement or situation. A paradox can often seem to be absurd at first, but when you look at it closer, you may actually find out it points to some kind of truth. The Lathe of Heaven is full of paradoxical statements, situations, and characters. Identify three different paradoxes in the first four chapters–statements, situations, or characters. Give a quotation for each paradox and explain the self-contradiction and how it may embody a truth or reality.
