    Suggestion:
    1. Go through the first 1/3rd of the play and make notes about every instance in which a god or goddess is mentioned. In addition, be sure you note how that god/goddess is affecting the humans at that point in the story.

    2. Do the same thing toward the end of the story, probably about the last 1/4th of the play.

    3. The "middle" in your assignment undoubtedly is there to get you to determine why you think any changes happened.

    Let us know what you come up with.
