With so much effort focused on the extremes of life, one work, a play by John Guare entitled Six Degrees of Separation, stands out....   [tags: Guare Six Degrees Separation Essays]

Malignant Iago of Shakespeare's Othello -     Pure evil is like a cancerous plague that harms all those who come upon it.  In the tragic play “Othello” by William Shakespeare, Iago is a character that represents pure evil – a malignant cancer to all those around him.  His evil is exposed through his choice of words, his ability to manipulate people, and his opportunistic ways.       First, Iago’s evil is shown through his choice of words that demonstrate his vulgarity and his sinister intentions.  Iago’s language is extremely base and forward; he does show any remorse or sympathy in any situation.  For example, Desdemona has recently married Othello; when Desdemona’s father, Brabantio, hears the news he becomes enraged.  To make...   [tags: GCSE Coursework Shakespeare Othello]
