MEDEA: Choose ONE of these and write 1-3 paragraphs to answer . You can quote from the test if you want
1) Usually the protagonist has a ‘tragic flaw’ that leads to his or her own destruction, but in MEDEA, it is Jason (the Antagonist) who has personality flaws that lead to his destruction. Discuss the mistakes he makes in the play that lead Medea to destroy him and all he loves.
2) Is Medea a sympathetic character? Does she remain sympathetic the whole play,, or is there a point at which you stopped being on her side?
3) In Medea’s first long speech to the chorus (lines 213-261), she claims that women are afflicted with the most “wretched” existence on earth. How is gender explored in the play? Is Medea a positive or negative example of a feminist heroine?
OTHELLO: Choose ONE of these and write 1-3 paragraphs to answer. You can quote from the text if you want.
1) In Iago’s ‘I Hate The Moor’ speech in Act I, scene 3, he claims that he has heard rumors that Othello has slept with Iago’s wife, Emilia, and that he will use that for an excuse to destroy him. Does Iago really care about Emilia,or is there another reason why he would get revenge for this? What other moments in the play suggest that rumor might be true?
