Celebration Quotation – February 2, 2016
In honor of Ground Hog Day – a famous quote about shadows from that “Scottish play”:
We think this 1889 drawing by artist Arthur Jule Goodman of Edwin Booth in the role of the Scottish king seems to capture this moment in the play.
There is one surviving recording of Booth reciting a speech from Othello – the sound quality is not great but you can find it here: https://archive.org/details/OthelloByEdwinBooth1890
