High school students are still reading A Separate Peace more than forty years after its publication. Compose an essay describing what you think the book's enduring relevance is. What do the characters and the conflict say to people today? Do you imagine the book will retain its relevance in the future. Use at least two specific examples from the book to support your ideas.

I'm really stuck on this question and can't figure out the book's relevance. I can't find anything on Sparknotes either that would help me with this essay.

Can someone help please

  1. I can't imagine you not getting the revelence if you have read the book.
    Coming of Age issues, and moral definition are enduring settling (an maturing) issues for young adults. Those do not change over 40 years. Surely you can find examples of this in the book.
    I suspect you have not read the book.

  2. I have read the book but idk why I'm still stuck

  3. Does the book have relevance to you? What?

  4. One thing I related to was Gene's inner evil, and I think others can relate to that too. But I don't know how I could write a full essay about that

  5. Isn't there a conflict between the inner evil and the inner good?

    Use examples from the book as well as your own and friends' experiences.
