The love triangle between Hannah, Fay, and Guy reaches a confrontation climax in Act 2, Scene 1.

Guy is simply lonely and enjoying the attention of two women. Compare/contrast the Guy/Fay relationship to the Guy/Hannah relationship. While neither relationship is healthy, which one do you think is more fulfilling to Guy and why?

However, there are times when one wonders if Guy might not be so innocent, especially when it comes to his relationships with Hannah and Fay. Identify situations in the play where Guy's participation is arguably a result of him allowing himself to be led. Afterward, identify situations where he appears to be proactive. Compare/contrast the two sets of situations. What, if anything, appears to be a common factor to both sets?
