This should be a thesis-driven, argument paper. Make a point, and then prove it with facts from the play. Options: 1.) EURYDICE by Sarah Ruhl adapts a famous myth, but changes it in many ways: Eurydice’s father doesn’t play a role in the original myth, but he plays a pivotal role in Ruhl’s play. In the classical versions of the story, Eurydice is a passive victim. In Ovid’s version of the story, she doesn’t speak at all and in Virgil’s poem she says only a few words after Orpheus has already looked back at her. In Sarah Ruhl’s Eurydice, she is given both a voice and a choice. In a 2-3 page essay, looking at these changes from the original myth, choose one that is “most successful” in the re-telling of the story and why. Elaborate on how changing the myth has a greater impact on a modern audience. 2.) Or… The world before the underworld also seems magical and surreal how does one define the two different locations of the play without loosing either locations surreal/magical existence 3.) or… To what extent did Eurydice make the right choice when deciding to return to earth with Orpheus?
