March 14, 2014 – English Discussion questions: • In a conversation between Indiana and Bevil Jr., the subject of the opera arises. What do they say about the opera? Do you think this is Steele’s attitude towards the opera? o Both men and women can have double standards o More substance than just romance it’s based on mutual respect, finish each other’s sentences. P.296  External marriage is beauty  Conscious lover, mutually aware, connection that is respectful o Conversation about a good man, masculinity o Romantic drama comes from Steele. Modern example: Lakehouse, the seriousness of their love. Respect, to ask if he could sit next to her. Conversation between the two lovers. Shows an interest in her. Talking about the books (in the Conscious Lovers they talk about the opera). Waiting, being patient. Father intervene for her best interests (Sir John doesn’t want Bevil to make the same mistakes he did, controlling but out of love). Young professionals at the center (upper middle class at the center). • Act Three features a scene between the servants Tom and Phillis. Their love story is not central to Steele’s play, but it is still important. What is the relationship between their romance and that of the “great” lovers? o They are more physical, their relationship is sealed with a kiss. They don’t have the money for documents or to barter with, bargain with their bodies. T
