Compose a threeto five-page essay using one of the following questions:

1. As in Oedipus the King, a major theme in Othello is mans inability to reliably distinguish
between what seems to be and what actually is. Explain how this shared theme of
Uncertain visionis treated somewhat differently in Othello than it is in Oedipus the
King.

2. In both Othello and A Dolls House we see a marriage disintegrate because of actions
initiated by a malevolent character. Compare Iagos and Krogstads motivations,
identifying to what degree either character is personally responsible for the final
destruction of either marriage.

As in your previous essay assignments, be sure that you develop and adhere to a clearly
identifiable focus and purpose, and that you provide sufficient evidence from the texts of the
plays to support or verify the position you adopt in your argument. Also, be certain that you
have correctly documented all references to the dramas.
