Not a fave. Othello seems rather stupidly gullible. And Iago is just so over-the-top-evil that I never really buy it. Although I do enjoy the idea of those swarthy Italians (in the English view) looking down on a Moor who would be racially indistinguishable from other Mediterraneans to the modern e...

Othello is can be a very painful play both to read and to watch. It is not that it is a bad play, no, it is a brilliant play - the reason that I say Othello is painful is because it is one of those plays that makes you squirm and feel really uncomfortable because it is doing what literature is suppo...

This is part of the 17 Books for People Who Hate People ritual... I mean challenge.Billy Shakes does racism and love and tragedy in Othello.

"I kissed thee ere I killed thee. No way but this,Killing myself, to die upon a kiss"Once I finished reading Othello I asked myself: is love truly powerful? Could it conquer any obstacle?I think Othello is a living example of how weak love truly is. Jealousy is love's evil twin brother! And it's dis...

3.5/5. (Studied in school)Although I'm not sure spoilers count for Shakespeareans here is a warning.I failed to care much as each character slipped from the story, one by one.
