From Shakespeare to Reality

It's almost comical, to read this SparkNnotes booklet on Othello.
My English exam is tomorrow, you see, and I'm a little worried. nevertheless, revision is in order, hence the reading.

And as I read, I realise that there are people in Shakespeare plays that I see in the personalities around me. I guess its what makes his plays so fantastic, as well as his use of the English language.

There's definitely an Iago. And a Desdemona.

And I am sure that if I were to review Hamlet and Romeo & Juliet and Much Ado About Nothing, I'd find a good deal more.

But its Iago that makes me laugh.

So Iago has a new name.

Let us see if Iago changes or retains the fate that the real one incurred upon himself..........
