Description Details Reviews "Hilarious, always inventive, this is a book for all, especially uptight English teachers, bardolaters, and ministerial students.
It really would have been how fools in the Middle Ages would have behaved. They may have been very smart and very quick, but they were not high-minded and the sense of humor was not high-minded. Essentially, I started with the premise.

It took off from there. It started with the setting and moved into what I could do with these other works.
Then there has always got to be some weird supernatural thing going on, and therefore, the serpent. So it was just trying to figure out how to make all those elements come together.
History really worked to my advantage because I had set Fool in the late thirteenth century and what was happening in Venice in the late thirteenth century was really interesting. Politically, the Venetians had made a lot of money by being the facilitator for the Crusades. They became the power of the Mediterranean because they could ship soldiers, goods, and weapons to the Holy Land.
In the Fourth Crusade, at the beginning of the thirteenth century, they really became a maritime power.
There were a lot of things going on that resonate with our time, what with wars in the Middle East being perpetrated by people who are going to make money on them, as well as the element of a black general, a black Moorish general. He was the head of a navy and a military force that was about to go to war against a Muslim force. Then a Jewish moneylender. Cyprus and Rhodes, I think. Setting it two hundred and fifty years earlier changes that quite a bit, and at that point, the Venetians are at war with the Genoans.
Toward the end of twelfth century, their navy was almost completely wiped out by the Genoan navy—down to forty ships.
They were able to hold the Genoans off; otherwise, Venice would have fallen. I just give that credit to Othello. By the same token, taking The Merchant of Venice, which sort of focuses on the merchant world of Venice, and this moneylender, Shylock, I was able to move that into the thirteenth century. Jews had been persecuted in Europe back to the first century.
Moving Shylock to be a moneylender at the time when there was a holy war with the Muslims, I thought there was a great conflict going on there. Making the plots work together—it was difficult.
As I started to see who I could cut and who I could keep, I could see that Shakespeare was writing for a troop of actors. So in many of those cases, I was able to make those characters a single person. You said that Venice is the perfect city for a monster story. What is it about Venice that makes it so perfect for monsters?

The buildings are buttressed to keep from caving in on each other at the top. Then there are these wellheads everywhere you go because Venice is often below sea level. The fresh water wellheads are these raised concrete or brick things—some of them are as high as six feet—and they have big iron lids on top of them.
So that was what really made it so creepy. There was a point where Venice was part of the Byzantine empire or basically owned the Byzantine empire because they took Constantinople.
That part of the architecture is maintained there. How did you come up with that idea? Years ago, a woman named Michelle Schlung asked me to contribute a story to an anthology she was doing of sexy horror stories.
I came up with the idea of a guy who was chained in a dungeon that the tide came in and out of. I never wrote the story; I had a nice exchange with the editor. And I want a monster in this.
I imagine that when you start off a book with interspecies bondage sex, you expect to maybe lose a few readers. That whole paranormal romance thing—there is a lot of intermonster boning going on. They have a thing in which she uses a weed-whacker as a sex toy for lack of any better term. That was way weirder than what goes on in this book. That was nearly fifteen years ago.
In that book, we just know that something happened, the weed-whacker was used, the monster got off, and they were both lying side-by-side, smoking cigarettes. You just know that something really bizarre has gone on.
To me, it seems totally appropriate to have this sort of bawdiness in Shakespeare because Shakespeare was a really bawdy author. Shakespeare was working within a pretty strict format. His practices and standards were tougher than they are at NBC, and yet he got away with a lot.
I did want to mention that Othello and Merchant of Venice are the two Shakespearean plays that deal with prejudice. If you're the owner of the website, log in to recover your site and get more information. Masuk ke Control Panel. Hostinger ada di seluruh dunia Platform web hosting terbaik.
