My students already have shown an astonishing interest in the art of persuasion and this "Villains in Drama" project will help enrich their rhetorical analysis experiences with the printed word that comes alive in oral performance. In our social climate is fraught with sloppy slippery rhetoric. I want to open my students' eyes, minds, hearts, and mouths to the glorious language of truly good writing. The best way to improve writing is to increase reading ability--by reading more. I hope these plays will continue to help my students grow stronger not only in reading but also thinking about the structure of elegant language as the manifestation of thought. The setting, characters, plot, theme range and variety of these three plays: Othello by William Shakespeare, Tartuffe by Moliere, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Dale Wasserman from the novel by Ken Kesey speak not to our differences, but to the commonalities that unite us. The play is the thing--most definitely. And, there are few things more terrifyingly delicious than really good villains.
