So if you saw a list called The 50 Most Hated Characters in Literary History, and you knew it was tagged Shakespeare, who would you expect to find?
I suppose we could debate what exactly hate means, and for that matter what exactly literary history means, for that matter - but for the purposes of this list lets just call it "characters that audiences love to hate."
Did you guess Iago? That was easy.
Well Shakespeare shows up in 3 spots, so what are the other two? I have to admit, I wouldn't have guessed. I don't think I'm particularly surprised, but those aren't the ones I would have picked.
