Reflect on the Orpheus and Eurydice myth and its reception. Some questions to consider (you do not have to address all or even any of these): Are there certain themes/motifs that appear in both the original myths and all works of reception? If so, what are they? Why do you think this myth relates to these themes/motifs so strongly? In what type of works has the Orpheus and Eurydice myth been used? Why these works in particular? We have studied three different women-authored works that treat the original myth very differently. Are there any similarities among all of the works of reception? If so, what are they and why? If not, why do you think that is? What is each author trying to accomplish in their work of reception? Are they simply retelling an old myth for a modern audience? Are they using familiar stories to ground unfamiliar perspectives? Really think through what the goal of each of these works of reception is, how each author is using the myth, and the degree to which you think their engagement with the myth is effective or applicable. Why did they choose this specific myth? Can you think of any other ways in which the Orpheus and Eurydice myth has been used? If so, what?
