In Othello Shakespeare creates a powerful drama of a marriage that begins with fascination between the exotic Moor Othello and the Venetian lady Desdemona with elopement and with intense mutual devotion and that ends precipitately with jealous rage and violent deaths He sets this story in the romantic world of the Mediterranean moving the action from Venice to the island of Cyprus and giving it an even more exotic coloring with stories of Othello s African past Shakespeare builds so many differences into his hero and heroine differences of race of age of cultural background that one should not perhaps be surprised that the marriage ends disastrously But most people who see or read the play feel that the love that the play presents between Othello and Desdemona is so strong that it would have overcome all these differences were it not for the words and actions of Othello s standard bearer Iago who hates Othello and sets out to destroy him by destroying his love for Desdemona As Othello succumbs to Iago s insinuations that Desdemona is unfaithful fascination which dominates the early acts of the play turns to horror especially for the audience We are confronted by spectacles of a generous and trusting Othello in the grip of Iago s schemes of an innocent Desdemona who has given herself up entirely to her love for Othello only to be subjected to his horrifying verbal and physical assaults the outcome of Othello s mistaken convictions about her faithlessness, King Lear growing old and too tired to reign decides to divide his realm amongst his three daughters leaving the largest share to the one who loves him the most His two eldest daughters Goneril and Regan foolish and deceitful children are rewarded for their insincere flattery His youngest daughter Cordelia however speaks honestly and truthfully which enrages the old king He disinherits Cordelia and then drives himself to madness left to wander the heath with only his Fool his servant Caius and the madman Tom O Bedlam for company Once reunited with Cordelia Lear is too late repents his rashness and must face the tragic consequences of his choices, In i Romeo and Juliet i Shakespeare creates a world of violence and generational conflict in which two young people fall in love and die because of that love The story is rather extraordinary in that the normal problems faced by young lovers are here so very large It is not simply that the families of Romeo and Juliet disapprove of the lover s affection for each other rather the Montagues and the Capulets are on opposite sides in a blood feud and are trying to kill each other on the streets of Verona Every time a member of one of the two families dies in the fight his relatives demand the blood of his killer Because of the feud if Romeo is discovered with Juliet by her family he will be killed Once Romeo is banished the only way that Juliet can avoid being married to someone else is to take a potion that apparently kills her so that she is burried with the bodies of her slain relatives In this violent death filled world the movement of the story from love at first sight to the union of the lovers in death seems almost inevitable br p What is so striking about this play is that despite its extraordinary setting one perhaps reflecting Elizabethan attitudes about hot blooded Italians it has become the quintessential story of young love Because most young lovers feel that they have to overcome giant obstacles in order to be together because they feel that they would rather die than be kept apart and especially because the language Shakespeare gives his young lovers is so exquisite allowing them to say to each other just what we would all say to a lover if we only knew how it is easy to respond to this play as if it were about all young lovers rather than about a particular couple in a very unusual world When the play was rewritten in the eighteen century as i The History and Fall of Caius Marius i the violent setting became that of a particularly discordant period in classical Rome when Leonard Berstein rewrote the play as i West Side Story i he chose the violent world of New York street gangs p, One of the greatest plays of all time the compelling tragedy of the tormented young prince of Denmark continues to capture the imaginations of modern audiences worldwide Confronted with evidence that his uncle murdered his father and with his mother s infidelity Hamlet must find a means of reconciling his longing for oblivion with his duty as avenger The ghost Hamlet s feigned madness Ophelia s death and burial the play within a play the closet scene in which Hamlet accuses his mother of complicity in murder and breathtaking swordplay are just some of the elements that make Hamlet an enduring masterpiece of the theater
