    hOW DID you find it? I found the pope question quite straightforward, but the othello q was quite complicated.
    I think the q were:
    pope in bringing the balance between the seious and trivial creates material ripe for satire. Do you agree?
    pope criticises women from a male perspective???

    For a modern day audience the message in Othello is still applicable. We question whether stupidity causes more destruction than evil.

    Shakespeare makes the avenger suffer the most in the end


    iT WAS SOMETHING LIKE THAT! I dunno i just fouind the othello q really challenging
    ANy thoughts!

    You put the Othello questions in the opposite order! I did (b) in the paper, which was the stupidity is more destructive than evil one. I found it alright! An essay came to mind pretty easily I found.

    what did you conclude? i said that Iago is not truly evil the whole Coleridge quote and that Othello is not really stupid and kind of lost the argument but ended by saying that Iago's malice and self interest directed the action and generated the 'tragic loading of the bed'

    I said that Iago effected the whole disaster in the play, and his evil (and intelligence and I didn't forget his stupidity either) was part of that, however it would not have worked had the other characters had "stupid" or foolish characteristics. (I didn't only use Othello.)
