983 Spring 2019 Getting to Know Shakespeare’s Iago
Tuesday, 11:50-1:15, Apr. 23
Instructor: Stacy Eldridge
This presentation will look at the character Iago from Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Othello, the Moor. We will discuss how Iago succeeds and why every character believes him. We will psychoanalyze him while also examining his true intentions, manipulations, and his luck. The purpose of this course is to get students interested and excited about Shakespeare and to explore Iago more closely while also including an analysis of the other main characters: Othello, Desdemona, and Emilia.
Stacy Rice Eldridge, an English/Literature instructor at NOVA, loves Shakespeare and has much experience teaching his works and acting in his plays. She also led a Shakespeare study abroad to England for 25 honors students. She’s excited to share her knowledge and learn from others!
