One of the greatest plays of all time the compelling tragedy of the tormented young prince of Denmark continues to capture the imaginations of modern audiences worldwide Confronted with evidence that his uncle murdered his father and with his mother s infidelity Hamlet must find a means of reconciling his longing for oblivion with his duty as avenger The ghost Hamlet s feigned madness Ophelia s death and burial the play within a play the closet scene in which Hamlet accuses his mother of complicity in murder and breathtaking swordplay are just some of the elements that make Hamlet an enduring masterpiece of the theater, King Lear growing old and too tired to reign decides to divide his realm amongst his three daughters leaving the largest share to the one who loves him the most His two eldest daughters Goneril and Regan foolish and deceitful children are rewarded for their insincere flattery His youngest daughter Cordelia however speaks honestly and truthfully which enrages the old king He disinherits Cordelia and then drives himself to madness left to wander the heath with only his Fool his servant Caius and the madman Tom O Bedlam for company Once reunited with Cordelia Lear is too late repents his rashness and must face the tragic consequences of his choices, In Othello Shakespeare creates a powerful drama of a marriage that begins with fascination between the exotic Moor Othello and the Venetian lady Desdemona with elopement and with intense mutual devotion and that ends precipitately with jealous rage and violent deaths He sets this story in the romantic world of the Mediterranean moving the action from Venice to the island of Cyprus and giving it an even more exotic coloring with stories of Othello s African past Shakespeare builds so many differences into his hero and heroine differences of race of age of cultural background that one should not perhaps be surprised that the marriage ends disastrously But most people who see or read the play feel that the love that the play presents between Othello and Desdemona is so strong that it would have overcome all these differences were it not for the words and actions of Othello s standard bearer Iago who hates Othello and sets out to destroy him by destroying his love for Desdemona As Othello succumbs to Iago s insinuations that Desdemona is unfaithful fascination which dominates the early acts of the play turns to horror especially for the audience We are confronted by spectacles of a generous and trusting Othello in the grip of Iago s schemes of an innocent Desdemona who has given herself up entirely to her love for Othello only to be subjected to his horrifying verbal and physical assaults the outcome of Othello s mistaken convictions about her faithlessness, Set in a topsy turvy world like a holiday revel this comedy devises a romantic plot around separated twins misplaced passions and mistaken identity Juxtaposed to it is the satirical story of a self deluded steward who dreams of becoming Count Malvolio only to receive his comeuppance at the hands of the merrymakers he wishes to suppress The two plots combine to create a farce touched with melancholy mixed throughout with seductively beautiful explorations on the themes of love and time and the play ends not with laughter but with a clown s sad song
