[C] WRITE & EMBED:

In your first post, respond to the following THREE prompts. Number your responses correctly. Include the short title for each prompt resins that is provided below.

The three prompts to address in post #1:

1. This idea of the audience being thrilled and appalled at once by the maneuvers of a cruel and shameless villain certainly applies in the case of Iago, whose maneuvering we follow with dread and fascination. Shakespeare clearly understood our attraction to such characters. What choices does Shakespeare make in this play to maneuver us – the audience – into position as Iago’s co-conspirators, (Links to an external site.)or at the very least, as his silent (complicit) witnesses? Be specific. Offer an example from the text of Othello.

    • SUGGESTED LENGTH: 5-8 SENTENCES
    • Title your answer: THE ROLE OF THE AUDIENCE

2. How does this strategy contribute to the power of the play?

    • SUGGESTED LENGTH: 5-8 SENTENCES
    • Title your answer: WHAT THIS STRATEGY DOES

3. Identify a favorite villain of yours. Describe this figure. What makes him or her compelling in the ways explained above? Explain and perhaps offer an illustrative example.

    • SUGGESTED LENGTH: 4-6 SENTENCES
    • Title your answer: FAVORITE VILLAIN & WHY

Underneath your description of the villain you present, include ONE of these (required):

  • An embedded video clip (e.g., if it’s a villain from film, TV, or possibly from news footage)

  • Or: An image. Include a drawing, animation cel, painting or illustration, or a photograph, if it’s a real-life villain, (historical or alive now) and one is available.

  • Or: A short excerpt of relevant text about the villain, (if it’s from novel, story, play, or true-crime account with no visual element)
