There's nothing really special in this brief interview - I don't know who this person is, or what she's famous for. But it caught my attention for mention of her thesis:
"I studied the character of Portia very minutely. It was also one of the characters that had qualities which one could easily relate to. Those who have read Othello will admit that they see themselves in Portia."
This of course says nothing about her thesis. Personally I've never really thought much about Portia at all.
Any Othello fans in the audience want to elaborate on what sorts of things she may have discussed in her thesis?
[Work with me, people. It's Saturday afternoon and I'm trying to look for a wider variety of material. :)]
