MUSE JWSS 96FQ Prof. Victoria Harrison The following questions are about Part One, Millennium Approaches : 1.

Why should the wires show? 2. What is the meaning of the epigraph from Stanley Kunitz's "The Testing Tree" before the beginning of the play? 3. What themes does Rabbi Isidor Chemelwitz's eulogy in Act I, Scene 1 introduce? Why does the play begin with a funeral? 4. What does Harper see about the world that Joe doesn't?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
