Final Paper: Due by noon, June 30, 2016

 

(4-6pages, 12 pt Font, Double Spaced—with your own ORIGINAL TITLE!).

 

All of these questions, in some way, relate to the plays we discussed in class.

 

 

 

Choose  ONE question from this list for your final paper and answer it to your best ability .

 

You  are required to use at least 2 sources other than the playtext as well as quotes  from the playtext to support your findings. Wikipedia, Bookrags, Sparknotes, Cliffnotes,  etc. are NOT legitimate sources. I am happy to suggest appropriate sources that will help you with your writing.

 

 

 

1. Using secondary sources , quotes from the plays and your own deductions,  to  compare and contrast Marina Carr’s  By the Bog of Cats and Euripides’  Medea in terms of their shared themes relating to myth and fate.

 

2.

 

Euripides’  Medea follows the tragedy of the title character. Euripides was

 

very interested in his depictions of women on the stage and as a result, he

 

chose to craft his female characters very carefully. Discuss the roles of the

 

female characters in Medea  and what consequence they have on both the

 

protagonist and the outcome of the play.

 

3.

 

Define and discuss the presence and impact of landscape and nature in Marina Carr’s By the Bog of Cats.

 

4.

 

On stage, the image of the home has often been defined as a place of

 

confinement for women in which, they often feel fear or anxiety.

 

Where  does Hester feel most at home and why? How do images of Hester’s home

 

reflect her inner self?

 

5.

 

Shepard wrote the play ‘’Fool For Love” in 1983 and the screenplay, in

 

1985 in which, he would play the role of Eddie. Robert Altman was the

 

film’s director with Kim Bassinger as ‘May’. Shepard was essentially able

 

to make two different versions of the same story within the confines of  two different mediums — stage and screen. This question asks you to  watch the film version of “Fool For Love” and compare and contrast the  different ideas as well as the similarities between the two versions and

 

what these aspects say about the core story.

 

6.

 

Memory and remembering, is a major source of conflict within, “Fool For

 

Love.” Define the role memory plays for each of the major characters,

 

with particular emphasis on the characters’ relationship to their shared

 

past and the ‘old man’.
