SPECIFY THE ROLE OF THE CHORUS IN ''MURDER IN THE CATHEDRAL'' BY T.S. ELIOT
Answers 1Add Yours
The chorus of Murder in the Cathedral comprises the women of Canterbury. Poor, common, and plain, these women have lived a difficult but manageable life since Thomas was sent into exile seven years before the play begins. Though they are Catholic and respect the archbishop, they are also worried that his return will bring them a new level of spiritual burden. The play examines the way they come to accept their spiritual responsibilities through the example of Thomas's martyrdom.
