Ode to a Nightingale
Ode to a Nightingale Questions
Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.
- Aside from your dreams, have you ever felt like you were in a different reality? What inspired this feeling, and what brought you back to the normal world?
- Have you ever thought what it would feel like to be an animal of any kind? If you could spend a day in the life of any animal, which would you choose?
- Have you ever been unable to tell the difference between life and a dream? Have you ever woken up from a dream, and felt that it was real? How do we know that our dreams are not real? (Yes, we're really getting deep here).
- Are nightingales actually that happy? What could be stressful about the life of a nightingale?
- Do you think birds have any concept of "beauty"? Do they know that their songs are "beautiful," or is that just a projection of human ideas?
