Courtesan: More Discussion Questions

Posted in Company of the Courtesan tagged at 1:54 pm by Ms. Davis

I don’t know about you, but I got totally sucked into this book! I can’t wait to get together with you and hear what you have to say about it.

Here are some more questions from the back of my book:

8. Do you think Fiammetta was truly in love with Foscari? If you don’t how would you define their relationship? Was Bucino’s anger at this relationship justified?

9. What does sixteenth-century Venetian society have in common with our society today?

10. Why do Bucino and Fiammetta make such a good team? What makes them successful?

11. The picture on the cover of our book is a detail from a painting by Tiziano Vecellio (Titian). When you were reading the novel, did you form an image of Fiammetta that was based on this cover image, or did you make up your own image of her? If your own, can you describe it?

12. What predictions would you make about little Fiammetta’s future life? Do you think she’ll have the same profession as her namesake?

SEE you Friday morning! Bring any ideas for our next choice that you might have!
