This book contains William Shakespeare's play Othello . This tightly constructed work revolves around four central characters: Othello, a Moorish general in the Venetian army; his beloved wife, Desdemona; his loyal lieutenant, Cassio; and his trusted but unfaithful ensign, Iago. Because of its varied and current themes of racism, love, jealousy, betrayal, revenge and repentance, Othello is still often performed in professional and community theatre alike and has been the basis for numerous operatic, film, and literary adaptations. A fantastic play, Othello is highly recommended for fans of Shakespeare's work, and deserves a place on every bookshelf. William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616) was an English playwright, actor, and poet - considered to be the greatest writer in the English language, and the world's most celebrated dramatist. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of William Shakespeare.
