who's the best Shakespeare character ?
it's obviously Iago you faggot
I'm amazed that there could be disagreement about a matter that is so obviously clear-cut.
I hope we can live in a world where there is no more anti-semitism or bigotry. Oh the poor Jews, the poor Jews. I'm glad that Shakespeare, who was well versed in the holocaust, chose to portray him as the persecuted saint he was-- Or was that done by Jewish revisionists?
Iago is a dramatic ploy, pure evil for little to no reason.
He literally says "haha, I'm gonna be evil!"
Shakespeare usually didn't create such 'characters' --- in the etymological sense of the term ---, but, rather, individuals.
"Yet do I fear thy nature;
It is too full o' th' milk of human kindness"
>a pox upon your house if you don't agree
I've always been really interested in the clowns he uses, Like Touchstone and Feste, or the two in Hamlet (who I always imagine as clowns in full regalia, wandering the cemetery.)
dude i agree. ophelia is by far shakespeare's hottest female character.
"In her excellent white bosom," hamlet writes in his love letter to her. act i, scene ii. then, later, in act iii, scene i, hamlet even calls her "fair" (like her skin) and compares her to a "nymph."
and dude, have you ever even SEEN paintings of nymphs? all naked and grabbing at dudes from in the water and shit. i mean, GODDAMN, that shit's hot. alright friend, i'll give you some advice: look it up. look up "nymph." google it. you won't be disappointed. man.
fuckin' ophelia, i swear.
Very easily one of Shakespeare's most introspective characters.
Denmark is a prison to him, even though he is prince. In the right mindset anything is a prison.
Also, the To be or not to be speech is phenomenal.
All these faggots crying Ophelia when Titania is the only true choice.
Not every villain has to have areas of gray and a sob story to be fucking good. Iago is actually likeable because he's so mean-spirited and ridiculously good at fucking with all the characters... He gives bullshit reasons for his actions as if he has to justify his acts to himself. But in the end he's just an asshole who is ridiculously quick witted, and it's a real pleasure to see him work.
