When I first started reading this play, I saw some strong parallels with Othello, an other one of my absolute favorites. Then the parallels started to evaporate. I am wondering if anyone can tell me why the main jealous hero suddenly disappears from view in Act Four, and why he's not as significant as he is in Othello.
This was fucking horrible! After the first illogical, ridiculous occurrence, I managed to predict EVERYTHING! -that is, to my dismay. The ending is just horrid, as well. And what the hell was this random magic at the end? Wtf Shakespeare. Why do people love this guy!? I understand the appeal in the 17th century. After all, NOBODY had an education, and thus, didn't have any literary experience. But why now? People should be smart enough to see his crap for what it is: CRAP!
I want to read this book because Carmen in the movie of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants liked it.
