Name Questions on Brecht Status Completed Score 24 out of 25 points Instructions Answer each question in one or more well thought out paragraphs (Blackboard doesn't show paragraphs, unfortunately, which is not a big concern, but you can write "New Paragraph" between yours if you wish). Minimum word count is 100 words per question. Most scores less than full credit reflect lack of development or sloppy, dashed off in a hurry answers. Question 1 5 out of 5 points Who is Shen Te, and what function does her character play in the work? Selected Answer: Shen Te is the prostitute that takes the gods in for the night. She is given a money as a gift because of that, but the gods challenge her to remain good. She buys a tobacco shop. She tries to be good but her neighbors harass her for handouts until she has to rely on an alter ego to be cruel just to protect herself. Her nativity is shown when she falls in love with Yang Sun, and hands him the key to her tobacco shop when she needed that money herself. At the end of the play, the gods abandon her forever.
