He That Falls

... into sin is a man; he that grieves at it is a saint ...
... he that boasts of it, is a devil.


  1. Ooh, an Othelo scene.

    Say, do you suppose, when Iago says "I hate the Moor", that he means this moor, or "the [generic] moor"? I mean, of course he has his particular suspicion to avenge as well, but... does Iago feed moorishness to either suspicion or hatred?

    1. THIS moor. Iago has a history of taking things other people consider offensive, and using them to express his personal hatred (see his early comments to Desdemona's father). But that's my very off-the-cuff two cents ... I could probably be persuaded otherwise, if someone gave me evidence for it.
