    (PDF) [New Boy By Tracy Chevalier] ↠ Tracy Chevalier This is a powerful and poignant retelling of Shakespeare's Othello I read the original and its modern predecessor back to back and in my humble opinion thought Chevalier did justice to this timeless story from the renowned bardIt was a bold and interesting option to transmute the original from an epic tragedy to the experiences of a handful of children during just one school day on a playground This truncated time per

Chevalier takes on Othello in this latest entry from the Hogarth Shakespeare series The third I have read and am enjoying the different takes the authors are writing to modernize these classics She sets Othello in a grade school in Washington DC and the story takes place all in a day The students are now in sixth grade have known each other for years statuses clearly defined top of the heap before moving onto Middle schhol and starting at the bottom White and privileged and inot this grouping comes a new student a black boy called OA interesting concept and certainly one can see why this would be an enticing setting I found though the concept almost two obvious one can see where this is headed all the way I felt this became about racial prejudice especially from the teachers who have very preconceived notions of the trouble this student will cause than a recounting or reformatting of Othello Though the author does throw in some familiar bits to keep the connection alive strawberries for one and the mention of Ian playing Puck in the students production of Midsummers night dream Ian of course being the bully of the piece as far as the children go but this also presented a problem In my experience bullies at that age terrorize pick on and steal from those younger than themselves what I uestion is Ian s ability to plan and manipulate as he does here So as a story I liked this but as a connection to Othello felt it was tenuous at best and maybe had its own agenda

New Boy By Tracy Chevalier

review ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub º Tracy Chevalier Free download New Boy By Tracy Chevalier ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Tracy Chevalier º 9 Free download From the New York Times bestselling author of Girl with a Pearl Earring comes the fifth installment in the Hogarth Shakespeare series a modern retelling of Othello set in a suburban schoolyardArriving at his fifth school in as many years a diplomat's son Osei Kokote knows he needs an ally if he is to survive his first day so he's lucky to hit it off with. This is the modern reimagining in the Hogarth Shakespeare series of the dark psychological play Othello It is transferred to the 1970s and set amongst 6th graders and teachers in a elementary school in a suburb of Washington DC It works surprisingly well and the action takes place over the period of a day The heavy and raw emotions of an incendiary jealousy bent on destruction rage envy insecurity and resentment fits well into the school playground where the smallest of incidents gets blown up into mammoth proportions The importance attached to in crowds and popularity resonate with school kids and underline its insidious malevolence in the school milieuOsei is black a Ghanian diplomat s son and the eponymous new boy who understands the need for friends to fit in into the all white school There is blatant presence of a casual racism coming from teachers and children Rising above all that and seeking to understand is the bright pretty and popular Dee who befriends Osei along with Casper This puts the cat among the pigeons as the old social order perceives itself to be threatened personified by the manipulative and jealous Ian chief ruler of the playground using fear and bullying as his means to establish his top dog position Ian has no intention of letting things stand as they are between the star crossed lovers Unlike Othello we get glimpses of the sweet and tender relationship between Osei and Dee Ian is reduced to a vindictive petty and smaller character in the greater scheme of things than the central larger than life Iago envisioned in Othello We all know where the action is inexorably heading lending dread to the narrative for the readerThis novel speaks volumes with regards to the issue of race in contemporary politics and society Osei is the outsider whose treatment bears distinctly uncomfortable parallels with the experience of black people and migrants today The schoolyard is but a micro stage of the larger national and international stage inhabited by adults Tracy Chevalier s reworking of Othello does not by any means work perfectly Nevertheless the setting is a success the time frame perhaps less so I found this a uick absorbing compelling and entertaining read Highly recommended and a great way to get young people into Shakespeare Thanks to Random House Vintage for an ARC

My third in this series of Shakespearean rewrites but sadly I did not enjoy it as much as either Hag Seed or Vinegar GirlNew Boy is based on Othello and many of the similarities were obvious but I thought the author s idea of placing the action in a 1970 s elementary school in the USA was problematic at least for me I really feel that eleven year old children in 1970 were not so street smart or so sexualised I am sure they may have ostracised the single non white child in the school but the havoc this child wreaks in one simple six hour school day is nonsensicalThe idea was good the writing is good but the setting is wrong and the time span far too short Even for a Young Adult audience the age group of the characters is too youngOops Sorry did not mean to be so critical Let s just say this book did not do it for me but I notice that many other people liked it very much
