example, in a PinkMonkey discussion thread about Othello concerning Iago’s
sexuality, one student, Zac, responds to a conventionally academic
interpretation of why Iago hates Othello (“Othello has passed Iago over
for promotion, preferring Michael Cassio….There are lots of possible
motives behind his hatred….” [p. 61]) with a more “real-world”
interpretation that calls on his theatrical experience: “Dude, Iago is
gay….as an actor I use it as his primary motive in the play, it works,
trust me. It cannot be proven…but it’s there, oh it’s there” (p.
62). Another student, Elle, then speaks up to assert the validity
of Zac’s interpretation by referencing her own success in writing a
paper about it: “I recently got a 98.75% using that argument in my
senior year” (p. 63). (back)|
