Hi! I'm a senior in high school and I write for fun and try my best to make my stories fun. When I'm not writing I'm probably reading, or somewhere in a corner painting. :)

A Modern Approach and Interpretation of Shakespeare's Othello

FREE WRITING

Othello was a play written by Shakespeare presumably in the years 1603 and 1604, during which a peace treaty was signed between England and Spain. This might have brought about the memory of the War of Cyprus that occurred when Shakespeare was much younger, inspiring him to write a play set in Venice around the time of this war. Othello was a Moor that Shakespeare portrayed as a kind, brave and charismatic character, contrary to the common belief at the...

How would knowing Shakespeare's (or any author's) biography help understand his (their) work better?

FREE WRITING

Knowing a fair amount about Shakespeare’s life would help in understanding his plays better, and could even give you an entirely different perspective to them. In addition to that, you might even learn about the culture and the ways of society at that time.

Happenings in Shakespeare’s life might have caused him to put them in his stories. Shakespeare bringing back people from the dead could mean that he had lost someone that he cared for (possibly his son, Hamnet)...

"Maybe Mable" - A Mystery

FREE WRITING

The subway was bustling with people. I was lucky to have found a seat and I sat, my backside indignantly plastered to the hard metal chair. I often wondered if I'd ever be able to lift my weight off the seat and when I wasn't contemplating the possibilities of me getting up in time for my train, I was watching the people around me in the subway.

Who Owns Shakespeare

FREE WRITING

Shakespeare is widely regarded as the greatest playwright in the English language. His works showcase the deepest feelings of humans, that the majority of us would be too ashamed to even admit the presence of. On reading Othello, I have been awed by such human emotion that is so vividly portrayed in Shakespeare's words. I also realised the amount of energy that a person, overcome with jealousy and hunger for power, is willing to put into another's downfall, instead of...
