I would agree with this assumption, Equus is great art in that it does force its audience to re-examine the fundamentals of our existence to some extent. Fighting against Shaffers other great works, Equus is still widely considered his crowning dramatic achiev...

Othello is a classical tragedy Discuss this statement in the light of
Othello is a classical tragedy. Discuss this statement in the light of the play. The question of whether Othello is a classical tragedy relies on two major factors, the first obviously being the content of the play itself which I will discuss later, the second the definition of what a classical tragedy actually is.

Othello
Othello Emilia is a feisty harlot, while Desdemona is a passive victim. How fair description is this of Emilia and Desdemona. This statement is harshly definitive of the two characters.
