Comment: Re: SHK 19.0450 Iagogo
Speaking of Iago, and risking a hefty tangent, does anybody know if there's been
any discussion about his echoes in the character of the Joker in the new Batman
Now that you're done laughing, I'll just offer this: the writers behind this
Joker seem to be both familiar with Auden's essay and to have designed the
character as an over determined, ultimately motiveless malignity.
Does this sound plausible to anybody else? In all of the discussion over the new
movie, I haven't heard anybody present it yet.
