The Great Wednesday Compare #8- Lady Macbeth VERSUS Atticus Finch


The winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (Lady Macbeth VERSUS Iago), with a final score of 3-2 was Lady Macbeth.

This week we say goodbye to pure evil. Yes, who can forget Gilbert Gottfried's sinister parrot* who... oh, wait, different Iago. Iago, from Othello, is my favourite Shakespearean villain. Rarely does Shakespeare offer so little of a character's psychology yet achieve such a rich and complex character. In any case, he didn't win last week.

Vote in the comment section below before March 15th: Who is the better character?




*Interestingly, Disney's Iago wasn't the first cartoon parrot Iago. Anyone know the other?

Tough one, both are strong characters. Let's go with Atticus Finch. Lady Macbeth had a good run.

Going to have to switch up my vote and go with Atticus this time around. One of my favourite books.
