Good #FREE PDF á No Fear Shakespeare: Othello (Sparknotes No Fear Shakespeare) ⛅ Rare Book Easy to read in plain English Character descriptions at the beginning are helpful Nice to have texts on opposing pages. In The Allure of Nymphets I shared the following sonnet from William Shakespeare, which is about a disappointing love affair with a young girl The sonnet extols the wonders of youth Crabbed age and youth cannot live together Youth is full of pleasure, age is full of care Youth like summer morn, age like winter weather Youth like summer brave, age like winter bare.Youth like full of sport, age s breath is short Youth is nimble, age is lame Youth is hot and bold, age is weak and cold Youth is wild, and age is tame.Age, I do abhor thee youth, I adore theeIn addition, Shakespeare extols the wonders of youth in Othello via an age discrepant marriage between Othello, a North African general of the armies of Venice, and Desdemona, the exquisitely beautiful young daughter of Brabantio, a Venetian senator.Shakespeare doesn t give the exact ages of Othello and Desdemona, but Othello is described by Iago, the villain of the play, as an old black ram while Desdemona is described as a little white lamb with beautiful skin, whiter than snow and smooth as the finest marble.Othello and Desdemona feared that, due to Othello s race and age, they wouldn t get the blessing of her father thus, they eloped Roderigo, a young jealous admirer of Desdemona informed her father, but in the wee hours of the morning your daughter left your houseto go into the rough embrace of a lustful Moor I wrote in The Allure of Nymphets that young men and older women are understandably the most opposed to ephebophiles and teleiophiles Thus it was assumed that Othello seduced Desdemona It was unconscionable that she wanted to get married Desdemona s father even suggested that Othello used magic, trickery and or drugs to seduce Desdemona He said, Are there magic spells that can lead young virgins astray It s obvious to everyone that you you ve tricked her, drugged her, or kidnapped her.Othello is reminder that looks are not nearly as unimportant to nymphets as they are to ephebophiles Even Brabantio made that mistake He asked, And you want me to believe that despite her young age and proper upbringing she fell in love with a man she d be afraid to look at Iago opined, To keep things hot, she ll need someone with a handsome face, someone close to her in age, someone who looks and acts like her But Brabantio and Iago failed to understand that it was Othello s high self confidence, self esteem, and power i.e., self control that attracted Desdemona.After Desdemona convinced her father that it was her idea to marry Othello, he was forced to give their marriage his blessing however, that didn t prevent Iago and Roderigo from doing everything within their power to end the age discrepant marriage.Note I used the No Fear Shakespeare translation of Othello. I think Shakespeare is almost unreadable even to literate speakers of modern English You can read the words and assign a current definition of that word, but put them together and to me they don t make any sense Thank goodness this series puts the translation on the other side of the page It s actually fun to read the old English and after awhile you will start to pick up the lingo I never studied Shakespeare in college it might have helped I recommend the book for anyone wanting to venture into Shakespeare without the benefit of a teacher. We homeschool our teen We re going to see Othello, soon, so I decided to also have him read and discuss the play with me, before the play Thank God for No Fear Shakespeare Where was it, when I took AP Lit, all those years ago When we don t understand a passage, we just pause and read the modern English on the opposite page I m still making him read the original English and plod his way through all the difficult words and passages But, it s so much easier to understand, with the modern version on hand
