The Serpent of Venice // Christopher Moore 🐉🃏: “Thou treacherous coal-souled wank-weasel!“
.
This outrageous, Venetian satire pulls from various Shakespearean works and the result is “bloody” hilarious! The vibrant protagonist, Pocket, from Moore’s first novel, Fool, is back with his hodgepodge crew and an assortment of new characters in this witty take on Othello, The Merchant of Venice & The Cask of Amontillado.
.
Christopher Moore’s writing style and storytelling is unlike that of any other author. It is definitely an acquired taste—the humor can be quite crude at times and the historical backdrop accurately depicts the blatant racism & sexism of the time period. Furthermore, it took me a few pages to get sucked into the novel; but once I was hooked I couldn’t get enough of this creative, compelling tale.
.
Overall, The Serpent of Venice was a fun read and a nice change of pace from the genres I’m usually drawn to. Shout out to my wonderful boyfriend for pushing me out of my comfort zone & encouraging me to read this! 😘

•Quando non c'è più rimedio è inutile addolorarsi, perché si vede ormai il peggio che prima era attaccato alla speranza. Piangere sopra un male passato è il mezzo più sicuro per attirarsi nuovi mali. Quando la fortuna toglie ciò che non può essere conservato, bisogna avere pazienza: essa muta in burla la sua offesa. Il derubato che sorride, ruba qualcosa al ladro, ma chi piange per un dolore vano, ruba qualcosa a se stesso. (Il Doge di Venezia: atto I, scena III)• #otello ##William Shakespeare #globetheatre #rome #othello #themoorofvenice #play #tragedy

Iago (Kenneth Branagh), da "Othello" di Oliver Parker, 1995.
William Shakespeare, The Tragedy of Othello, the Moor of Venice, 1603.
“Oh, guardatevi dalla gelosia, mio signore. È un mostro dagli occhi verdi che dileggia il cibo di cui si nutre. Beato vive quel cornuto il quale, conscio della sua sorte, non ama la donna che lo tradisce: ma oh, come conta i minuti della sua dannazione chi ama e sospetta; sospetta e si strugge d'amore!” (A3S3) #othello #shakespeare #drama #tragedy #theater #kennethbranagh #iago #oliverparker #themoorofvenice #jealousy

If you’re going to cultivate a culture of jealousy in yachting circles, nothing’s more pointed or dramatically apt than naming your trophy skiff ‘Desdemona’.
