Othello And Desdemona Scene Iii
911 wordsWilliam Shakespeare's Othello is a tragic play consisting of five acts. Although each act is not of equal importance, each serves a distinct role that affects the quality of the play in its entirety. Removing any act would therefore greatly diminish the final product of this play; consequently, reducing the plays appeal to the audience. Since Act I satisfies several essential purposes, removing it would be a mistake. Ultimately, we would no longer be seeing Othello the way Shakespeare had intend...

Sense Of Familiarity Landscape
449 wordsIn Hrafnkel s Saga, the use of landscape and setting took on a different purpose than it has in the other three epics we have read. Throughout the saga, the description of the landscape seemed to be more prevalent and noticeable to the modern reader. To the 13 th c. reader, however, it would have been less noticeable. This is because it was a landscape which most would have known as their own. I believe this is in part why the author used such descriptions of common landscapes and scenes: in ord...
