Subject:        Query: Emilia
 
Hello!
 
Would anyone be able to point me toward articles dealing with Emilia
(_Othello_)?  I've been through the MLA with only thin results, and even books
I've looked at that attend to the women in Shakespeare seem to send little
energy on discussing her.
 
In particular, my interest lies in how she reflects Iago's position in some
fashion, along the lines of an anima/animus relationship, and then (perhaps)
how she come to transcend this through love -- mirroring and otherness.  I am
open to all thoughts on her character, though.
 
Any ruminations from the your learned ranks are welcomed.
 
Thanks in advance,
ao

Take a look at Marvin Rosenberg's *Masks of Othello* for details.

In response to Chris Stroffolino's question about the casting of Emilia: I
wouldn't be at all surprised if Emma Thompson shows up somewhere in the cast.
And no doubt Richard Briers will turn up as Brabantio, Brain Blessed as
Montano, perhaps, and the hopeless Keanu Reeves as Cassio. Ugh.  Couldn't all
concerned SHAKSPERians submit an open letter to Branagh pleading with him to
STOP making these movies?? I've heard, quite often, that Branagh's "mission" is
"to bring Shakespeare to the people."  My students, many of whom are quite
happy to have Shakespeare brought to them rather than have to bother seeking
him out for themselves, buy this -- anyone know of any pithy, published
challenge to Branagh's versions of Shakespeare that I can use to add a little
printed authority to my own ranting on this score? Saddened to hear of another
of Shakespeare's plays to be despoiled by Branagh's vainglory,
