Frenemies in Othello by William Shakespeare - “Friends, countrymen, lend me your ears.” This line is said by Mark Antony to garner the attention of his countrymen in arguably one of Shakespeare’s more popular plays, Julius Caesar.

Specifically, in the play Othello, the repetition of the word “friend” is relevant and draws the audience’s attention to relationships of a superficial or forced nature, as the relationship between Othello and Iago, Cassio and Bianca, and as a rhetorical device....   [tags: julius caesar, brabanzio] 1595 words
