* This scene is the total opposite of the start of the play - where everyone was happy; e is now throwing tables at c. * Pg.62: b has always known that e has loved c and to try and stop someone from dying she puts her feelings into words. * Pg.63: e and c are both disgusted. He actually physically cannot hold all these emotions in his head. He has never fully understood his feelings and now that they have been put into words he feels in agony. The idea of him wanting to violate his 'Madonna' breaks every value he has ever held dear. * As in all classical tragedies this is E's moment of recognition. * Death is the only answer so he goes out in defiance calling for his name- the only thing he has left. He knows he is defeated but carries on. * E's feelings for c are so intense he has destroyed himself. Love is usually a positive emotion but when it is so intense and passionate it takes over. * Pg.64: E's death has ruined all their lives. Cathie and Rudi will have to get married with it hanging over them. Marco will go to prison and then back to Italy, b wills b the widow of a horrible man in a neighbourhood that never forgets. * Cath forgives him in his death. * She is so confused in a few moments so much has happened she is guilty, in disbelief and in turmoil. ...read more.
