Papers on Greek and Roman Mythology
(Page 9)
Life As Wife; Desdemona In Othello, Nora In A Doll's
House :
Nora, the female protagonist in The Doll House, shares
many of the characteristics of Desdemona, the wife of Othello
in the Shakespearean play: She is also in a marriage defined by
the husband's position of authority and she has a strength of
character that allows her to go against the wishes of the
authority figure in her life. Unlike Desdemona, Nora refuses to
go quietly to her ruin. Where Othello takes the life of his wife,
the institution of marriage takes Nora's identity. The final piece
to the puzzle comes to Nora as the realization that she has no
legitimate name of her own, that she is unable to use either her
married name or the name of her father to borrow money. She
is nameless, symbolically stripped of her identity and in reality
denied power over herself. The marriage, rather than Nora,
dies. This 5 page paper examines the differences and
similarities of the roles portrayed by these two women.

Desdemona (Othello) Vs. Penelope (The Odyssey) :
A thoughtful 3 page essay comparing the character of
Desdemona in Shakespeare's Othello with Penelope in
Homer's Odyssey.  Desdemona is regarded as being
more of a simple person--madly in love and fairly ignorant
to the world around her. Penelope, however, was able to
become a strong and triumphant woman..exhibiting more
savvy and self-will. No Bibliography. Penelope.wps

Othello Compared With Antigone : 6 pages in length. A
comparison between Shakespeare's "Othello" and Sophocles
"Oedipus Trilogy" in which the writer interprets themes from
both stories and finds reason to assert that Othello and Antigone
were both very much alike in that they were essentially
outsiders, -- alienated from a group. Both characters endured
grave emotional drama and sought only truth & justice -- but to
no avail. No Bibliography. Othlantg.wps

length. An interesting look at ceremonies, rituals, and traditions

representative of the era. An EXCELLENT reference for

sources. Oedipus.wps

Sophocoles' "Oedipus" / Divine and Demonic Powers :

between good and evil. Demon.wps

Study in Tragedy / Sophocles' Oedipus the King : A 5 page
essay on how "Oedipus the King" is a definitive example of

circumstances of this particular story are in line with the classic
definition of 'tragedy.' Bibliography lists 5 sources.

sources. Zeusw.wps
