Review #28

Othello by William Shakespeare is one of his most compelling tragedies, saturated with evil and injustice. Iago is pure malevolence, and as he slowly unwinds the lives of his fellow characters it’s hard to stop reading. Desdemona is graceful, patient, and loyal, and undeserving of the murderous death that befell her, but I was glad when she died. All the actions of the play were leading up to Othello killing her, and it was a relief for it to be done. Shakespeare has once again created a tale full of love, heartbreak, and deceit that will never be forgotten.

I’m reading so many things at once!

Another book I’m starting is Othello by William Shakespeare. I have to read it for school anyway, so why not get a head start over Winter Break?

I haven’t had as many opportunities to kick back and read some good ol’ Shakespeare this summer like I was hoping for, but I’m starting The Tragedy of Hamlet to help rekindle my love for his plays. Hamlet is one that I’ve wanted to read for a long time, mostly because it’s so well know and obviously one of Shakespeare’s best.
