Product Description
The following two-page handout has eleven open-ended questions on Wole Soyinka's play "Death and the King's Horseman" that can be used for a Socratic Seminar, a general class discussion, or prompts for an essay. These critical analysis questions vary, but most assess the play's characterization, conflict, irony, on stage and off stage action, and themes. The questions also pose questions about the role of women in the play, the role of government in society, and other topics. A final question empowers students to write and share their own question about the play to the class or small group.
