Reflect upon Jasons depiction in book one in light of the other heroes with whom he sets out
and his absence at the start of book 2. Is Jason really heroic in your view? If so, how?
Be sure to cite specific examples to support your viewpoint. It is not necessary (or desirable) to
quote the text extensively; citing the book and line numbers is sufficient. For this assignment,
only consider the first 2 books of the epic.
