Subject: 20.0203 Othello and the Law
Comment: Re: SHK 20.0203 Othello and the Law
I second Larry Weiss's good response and just want to add that the
question of law comes up more centrally and problematically in
Shakespeare's other Venetian play, in which Portia seems to have pulled
a law out of her hat.
