Othello, the Moor of Venice : with contemporary criticism by William Shakespeare( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the four great tragedies--alongside 'Hamlet,' 'King Lear,' and 'Macbeth'--'Othello' is among the darkest of Shakespeare's plays, illumining the shadows of the gloomiest recesses of the human psyche and serving as a damning indictment of the world in which it was written. A cautionary tale of the destructiveness of sin and the ruinous consequences of bad philosophy, 'Othello' seems to express Shakespeare's rage at the cynicism and brutality of the age in which he lived. From the Machiavellian menace of Iago to the blind and prideful jealously of Othello, this classic of world literature shows us the shadow falling over a society that has turned its back on the light and life of virtue."--Back cover
