Othello has long been recognised as one of the most powerful of Shakespeare's tragedies. This is an intense drama of love, deception, jealousy and destruction, written in 1603. Dramatic and powerful in its scope, Othello explores the perils of suspicion and jealousy and the ensuing breakdown of relationships and disaster that can arise from such emotions. Othello, a revered soldier, secretly marries Desdemona, the daughter of a Venetian senator, but is led to believe that she has been unfaithful to him by his ensign, Iago, leading to tragic events. Desdemona's love for Othello, the Moor, transcends racial prejudice; but the envious Iago conspires to devastate their lives. In its vivid rendering of racism, sexism, contested identities, and the savagery lurking within civilization, Othello is arguably the most topical and accessible tragedy from Shakespeare's major phase as a dramatist. Productions on stage and screen regularly renew its power to engross, impress and trouble the imagination.

Englischer Text mit deutschen Worterklärungen / English text with annotations in German "Othello" ist bei Kritikern und Publikum gleichermaßen beliebt, was zweifellos auf die gelungene Verbindung von kompakter Handlung und unerschöpflich erscheinendem Aussagepotenzial zurückzuführen ist. Wir sehen heute in "Othello" Bezüge, die Shakespeares Zeitgenossen aufgrund eines völlig anderen Weltbildes entgingen. So hat sich in den letzten Jahren auch zunehmend der Englischunterricht für das Stück interessiert, etwa in Zusammenhang mit dem Thema Ausgrenzung und Rassismus. Mit dem "Othello" in der Roten Reihe steht nun eine Ausgabe zur Verfügung, die in bewährter Weise den ungekürzten Originaltext mit allen notwendigen sprachlichen und sachlichen Erläuterungen bietet. Enthalten sind außerdem Literaturhinweise und ein Nachwort. Mit Verszählung der gedruckten Ausgabe: Buch und E-Book sind parallel benutzbar.

Lois Potter traces Othello 's acting tradition as it affected the playing of Othello, Desdemona, characters originally played by a white actor and a boy, respectively, and Iago. She examines the stage and screen versions of the play, including a full study of Paul Robeson's 1943 avatar of the character, that reflect or challenge current views about race and gender.

In a period of ten years, Shakespeare wrote a series of tragedies that established him, by universal consent, in the front rank of the worlds dramatists. Critics have praised either Hamlet or King Lear as the greatest of these; Ernst Honigmann, in the most significant edition of the play for a generation, asks: why not Othello? The third of the mature tragedies, it contains, as Honigmann persuasively demonstrates, perhaps the best plot, two of Shakespeares most original characters, the most powerful scene in any of the plays and poetry second to none. Honigmanns cogent and closely argued introduction outlines the reasons both for a reluctance to recognize the greatness of Othello and for the case against the play. This edition sheds new light on the text of the play as we have come to know it, and on our knowledge of its early history. Honigmann examines the major critical issues, the play in performance and the relationship between reading it and seeing it. He also explores topics such as its date, sources and the conundrum of double time. 'Honigmann's extensive knowledge illuminates this play at every turn, making this the best edition of Othello now available.' Brian Vickers, Review of English Studies
