Theatre & Tragedy 1

Demand me nothing: what you know, you know:
From this time forth I never will speak word.

Shakespeare - Othello Act 5, Scene 2, Iago's last words

Not only the best play written by Shakespeare, but also one of my favourite plays ever written. I used to be able to recite Emilia's speeches because I loved her character so much. I still don't think to this day that a better villain than Iago has been created...

Now time to revisit Racine. I'm in the mood for some really good tragedies.
