Product description

Othello has a long history of provoking profound emotion in its audiences and readers. This 'freeze frame' volume showcases current debates and ideas about the play's provocative effects. Each chapter has been carefully selected for its originality and relevance to the needs of students, teachers, and researchers. Key issues and themes include:
- Gender, Love, and Desire
- Race, Ethnicity, and Difference
- Social Relations, Status, and Ambition
- Tragedy, Comedy, and Parody
- Language, Expression, and Characterization
All the essays offer new perspectives and combine to give readers an up-to-date understanding of what's exciting and challenging about Othello. The approach based on an individual play, unlike that of topic-based series, reflects how Shakespeare is most commonly studied and taught.
