reactions to scene 1 – does it fit any of our definitions?
– You almost feel like you are right there with the courtisan, and her want of revenge
DL – the logically 1 to 1 revenge thing isn’t what we see here, what’s Weil saying?
– Courtisan is buying into concept of honor
Christianna – Makes me think about the cycle of violence/revenge. Is it a good thing??
– It is a point of view I don’t agree with, therefor it is political.
Joe – Almost everytime I’ve seen political theatre it’s been a melodrama.
Drama = conflict between 2 rights
Melodrama = conflict between right and wrong
