  • Chorus Plays In Euripedes Medea
    1,207 words
    Discuss the importance of the role that the Chorus plays in Euripedes Medea. The Chorus is very much an important part of Euripedes Medea, and indeed many other works written in the ancient Greek style. In this play, it follows the journey Medea makes, and not only narrates, but commentates on what is happening. Euripedes uses the Chorus as a literary device to raise certain issues, and to influence where the sympathies of the audience lie. In the list of characters at the beginning of the play,...
  • Chorus In The Tragedy
    775 words
    In the drama Oedipus Rex, the chorus portrays the most complicated roles of the play. The chorus interprets the sympathy that the audience feels for the tragic character of Oedipus into melodic prose and dramatic emotion. The chorus in the tragedy is also responsible for increasing the dramatic irony. The audience is aware of Oedipus's guilt through the omniscience of the chorus, and the chorus is successful in increasing the effect of the tragedy through this. The tragedy speaks through the cho...

    1,332 words
    In answering this question, I will look at the question in two ways.

  • Help Of The Chorus Creon
    476 words
    The Chorus of Antigone The chorus was not only a major part of Antigone, but also the most insightful portion of this play's cast. The members of the chorus tell Creon and the audience very important truths about themselves. Throughout the play the chorus comments on Creon's actions, and gives us all unbiased views on our hypocritical species. Without a chorus Creon's epiphany may never have occurred and we wouldn't have, as easily, seen our personal flaws. The chorus is included in a very effec...
  • Play With The Chorus
    1,755 words
    Henry V The role of the Chorus in the Shakespeare's play, Henry V, is significant. Due to the subject matter that the play deals with, it is hard to present in the way that it deserves. The Chorus helps the audience follow the play by helping them to picture things as they were through the use of imagery. It uses descriptive language in describing events that take place in the play. The Chorus also helps in making the plot of the play flow together better by filling the time lapses that occur be...
  • Audience Through Oedipus And The Chorus
    1,503 words
    A common theme found in Greek plays is the use of a chorus. The chorus, a group of people that would serve as a parallel between the actors and the audience, can be found in almost every Greek play. In "Oedipus Rex", the chorus appears at the end of each scene and provides the audience with commentary on the story and the characters. By interacting with both the play and the audience, the chorus causes the audience to become a significant part of the play. While the main function of the Greek pl...
