Excerpt From this Document
- Write a brief sketch of these characters and identify their actions, motivation, and salient personality features: Medea, Jason, and King Creon.
- Explain the function of the chorus in this play, and illustrate any generalizations with specific references to the text.
- What are we referring to when we speak of the three classical unities? How do we see them operate in this play?
- Discuss how the Greeks view fate, and comment on it as it appears in this play.
- Does Medea or does she not fit the definition of a tragic heroine?
- Prove that Medea is not “crazy.” If the major figure in the play were simply a crazy person who kills her children because she hears voices, why would this not be a tragic drama?
- Discuss how messengers are used in a Greek play and why they are used in this fashion.
