The Man-Moth Questions
Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.
- Is the Man-Moth more man, or is he more moth?
- What is it that really drives the Man-Moth? His goal is the carrot at the end of the stick, but what is it that keeps him chasing it?
- In what ways does Bishop's style create a fantasy atmosphere where we can accept a character like the Man-Moth as real?
- Do you think the Man-Moth really believes that he can succeed?
- Why is the Man-Moth happier underground?
