Question:

In Shakespeare's famous play "Othello," why does the playwright depict Iago in such a powerful way, giving him some of the grandest monologues in the play?

Answer:

Iago is one of the most compelling villains in all of Shakespeare's work. He speaks grandly and with such conviction that the reader cannot help but be moved by his evil. This is done deliberately to show the ways in which an evil or misguided person can gain a wide following of morally sound people through powerful words and speeches. It illustrates the strength and influence of calculated words and demonstrates how much easier it is to support someone with corrupt ideas when one buys into their powerful messaging, allowing themselves to believe the lies.

Question:

In the novel "Anna Karenina" by Leo Tolstoy, Anna travels from Moscow to St. Petersburg in the opening of the novel. In what ways, besides typical travel necessity, is this movement important to the novel?

Answer:

In "Anna Karenina," much of the novel centers around the conflict between the traditional and the new. Here, St. Petersburg is representing the West and all of its innovation that defies tradition while Moscow remains a place of the past, continuing the way things have always been. Anna defies tradition in many ways throughout the novel and begins to move from her old expectations to a new, vaguer understanding of her role in society. She is not only traveling across Russia but entering a new place in her life that is impacted the adaptation of new morals and ideas.
