Question:

Discuss Iago's relationship with men in Shakespears Othello.

Inactive

Answer:

Shakespeare villains have become intrinsically famous over time, but perhaps none is quite so detrimentally evil as Iago in the tragedy of Othello. Acting with motiveless malignity and uncertified jealousy, Iago successfully manipulates and persuades the men around him. Iago is a villain with immense understanding of Othello’s (and other men in this play) character and uses language and misinterpretation to sow the seeds of perpetual doubt into their very core. Acting on unequivocal hatred, Iago exploits the men around him for his personal enjoyment.

Question:

Discuss the origin of uncanny spaces in two or more films you have studied.

Answer:

The uncanny aims to disturb through the familiar, disrupting and unsettling its victims with visions of evil coming from places of presupposed safety. The films The Shining (1980), directed by Stanley Kubrick, and The VVitch (2015), directed by Robert Eggers make use of the uncanny to disturb both the viewer and the characters occupying the film space. The familiar nuclear family unit is disrupted in both films by the uncanny space, the setting in which the characters find themselves exposed to. The psychological battle of the familiar reigns a terror over both sets of families. The Torrance’s of The Shining (1980) face the Overlook Hotel and the puritan family in The Witch (2015) face the barren forest surroundings. The uncanny is produced both through these unsettling surrounds but also comes from within the safety of the family. The uncanny works to destroy all sense of security. The cause of the uncanny is unstable, as the viewer is never quite sure of the origin of this horror.

Question:

Compare and contrast the role of guilt, crime and punishment in a text you have studied.

Answer:

Modern society operates on identifying a crime, finding who is guilty and enacting a fair punishment. Without this clear succession of justice society has the potential to fall into anarchy. The novel, The Talented Mr Ripley explores the consequences of crime when traditional methods of justice are not carried out but are perpetuated through differing circumstances. The protagonist commits many hefty crimes unnoticed, but guilt and punishment creep into his life anyway. Tom Ripley grapples with the weight of the violent and obsequious crimes he commits but also struggles with harsh social realities surrounding the criminality of his sexuality. Violence and love both crimes that proceed guilt and punishment in the novel.
