Subject: Elopement and Escape
I have recently studied The Merchant of Venice for my English
Literature examination, and I was surprised to notice some affinities /
differences between 'The Merchant' and 'Othello' as far as Desdemona and
Jessica elopement/escape are considered. Even 'the stranger'
(Othello/Shylock) is worth to be compared.
Has anybody got any suggestions/ideas ?
I looked for some essays in the library - unsuccessfully.
