As you read the text, make a note of passages (note page # so that you can find them easily and type out either a citation or reference to a passage) that reflect typical Kleistian themes: ACT I 1. How does Mercury convince Sosias that he is Sosias? 2. What does Jupiter not want Alcmene to forget? (p. 18-19) ACT 2 3. What is the unfathomable story (the fairy tale) that Sosias tries to tell Amphitryon? 4. How does Alcmene react when she sees Amphitryon again? How does he feel about her reaction? (p. 30) 5. What is the dramatic irony in Alcmene’s explanation to Amphitryon (p. 36: “you said you were a god, all sorts of things…”) 6. Explain the unexplainable that Alcmene has experienced (p. 42-43). Pay particular attention to her words to Charis on p. 43: “Oh Charis! As soon mistake myself, I would!...” 7. Alcmene mistrusts her inmost feeling (top of p. 46), but Jupiter tells her “not your unerring feeling!” (p. 47). What inmost feeling are they talking about?

    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.
