Though this great tragedy of unsurpassed intensity and emotion is played out against Renaissance splendor, its story of the doomed marriage of a Venetian senators daughter, Desdemona, to a Moorish general, Othello, is especially relevant to modern audiences.

The differences in race and background create an initial tension that allows the horrifyingly envious villain Iago methodically to promote the green-eyed monster jealousy, until, in one of the most deeply moving scenes in theatrical history, the noble Moor destroys the woman he lovesonly to discover too late that she was innocent.Each Edition Includes: Comprehensive explanatory notes Vivid introductions and the most up-to-date scholarship Clear, modernized spelling and punctuation, enabling contemporary readers to understand the Elizabethan English Completely updated, detailed bibliographies and performance histories An interpretive essay on film adaptations of the play, along with an extensive filmography
