Comment:        Re: SHK 7.0378 Re: The Macbeths

I like Lowenstein's effort to connect the subject of indifference/grief to
similar moments in another play.  But Brutus's language over Cassius's body is
an echo of his language about killing Caesar, an echo of his language about a
dead Portia.  Is not the recent discussion of Othello's love also our effort to
approach another character's language of indifference/grief/abstraction about
another dead love?

I also hear the language of Octavius Caesar to his sister, lamenting the fact
that he was not warned of her arrival.  He missed the chance to show his love.
I find his language about a living sister chilling . . . and indifferent.

Surely, feminist critics have noticed the language that these male characters
use to address their dead love?
