A complete, authoritative account of Shakespeare\'s life is lacking; much supposition surrounds relatively few facts. His day of birth is traditionally held on April 23, and he was baptized on April 24, 1564. He was the third of eight children, and was the eldest son of John Shakespeare. He was probably educated in a local grammar school. As th

These parallels concern themes and prototypical Shakespearian character types. Both plays have a distinct pair of \'lovers\', Hermia and Lysander, and Romeo and Juliet, respectively. Both plays could have also easily been tragedy or comedy with a few simple changes. A tragic play is a play in which one or more characters have a moral flaw that

Adding to all this chaos, Iago tries to entice Othello into murdering his own wife Desdemona, which would give Iago much satisfaction for revenge. The motive for Iago\'s devious plan

This principle is not always an intelligent philosophy to live by. Nor does it always hold true, because even revenge that is calmly planned and executed precisely ends in

The more obvious way that it flatters us is by alienating us from the protagonist in his downfall so that we watch his destruction from a secure vantage. Less obviously, the form of the play, typical of modern American tragedy, romanticizes the protagonist through what I call the audience\'s paradox, that tension created when a serious work of
