Hello people, I have an Interactive Oral --if you don't know what it is, it's an oral presentation + leading discussion by group-- on the history of the novel "Paradise of the Blind" by Duong Thu Huong. 

I have got Communism part of the history, and I have a few question that I need to answer. 

I sort of get the answer, but I am not clear how to gather my little pieces of ideas into a clear answer, since the question covers a wide field.



  • Where does the author allude to history (communism) in the text?

  • How are these important to our response & understanding of the text?

  • Are there any motifs used in the text that connect to this topic?

  • Are there any themes in the text that come out of this topic?

The first two questions are very important and I have least knowledge about those two questions.

Please help me, and please add some quotations and the number of chapter if you know some well-supportive questions.

And please recommend me some questions that I can use for discussion leading if you have some interesting questions.


Thank you so much.

I can't remember much about Paradise of the Blind, but I'd say look at the effects of communism on the landscape, and also the uncle and the compound he lives in. The effects of communism on the village life and hierarchy is also a pretty clear idea. 

Sorry, in terms of quotes and page numbers I can't do your work for you.

Just keep in mind that the interactive oral doesn't actually count for IB, so there's no need to stress over it :)
