Classic Essay, Euripifes’Ion

read a play and then answer the question. DUE IN 6 Hours.

Cite specific examples from the play to answer the following questions. 300-400 words (more is ok).

To what extent does the story of Ion justify and make look natural the actions and policies of the Athenians? Do you think Euripides supports those policies or critiques them?

It is ok for your answer to pose questions or present issues that you feel are not resolved in a clear cut way in the play.  Exploration of contradictions or complexity is welcome! I am interested in hearing what you think!
