Good Night Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) Act II

In Good Night Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) Act II I noticed this passage: “Shocked, and at a loss for words to explain her statement, Constance gathers her courage and timidly approaches Iago” (MacDonald 24).

I chose this passage because although it is a stage direction, it is an interesting response to our urge to go back in time to fix things, or even enter the story. When I read Othello, there were many times where I had wished that I was able to enter the world of the characters. I had never considered that it would likely be a nerve wracking experience and that I might not even have the courage to stop the character from committing the act. Although I simply quoted a stage direction, I think that this is an interesting way to sum up one of the issues presented in this act.
