? Iago is one of the longest roles in Shakespeare – 1,020 lines, almost 250 lines longer than Othello (250 lines is the length of the entire role of Caliban). Only Hamlet, the longest role by far, and Richard III are longer; these three are the only roles that are over a thousand lines (though Henry V almost makes it, at 999). For comparison, the whole of The Comedy of Errors is

Crusoe to his island, and live there with him and his goats and his man Friday – how much we dread any new comers, any fresh importation of savage or sailor! … or to be shipwrecked with Ferdinand on that other lovelier island – the island of Prospero, and Miranda, and Caliban, and Ariel, and nobody else, none of Dryden’s exotic inventions; – that is best of all. And a small neighbourhood is as good in sober waking reality as in poetry or prose; a village neighbourhood, such as this Berkshire hamlet in which I write, a long, straggling, winding street at the bottom of a

Conclusion In the Showtime series Penny Dreadful , creator and writer John Logan departs slightly from the plot of Shelley’s Frankenstein by portraying Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) as he creates a fearful, placid Creature named Proteus (Alex Price), whom Frankenstein proceeds to treat with great gentleness and affection. Abruptly, however, viewers discover that this is not the first time Frankenstein has given life to an inanimate body. Frankenstein’s first Creature, Caliban (Rory Kinnear), makes a

It is in Pericles , however, that the idea of violation is most resonant and, indeed, most thoroughly connected with the violence of the storm.
