One of the most powerful dramas ever written for the stage, Othello is a story of revenge, illusion, passion, mistrust, jealousy, and murder. If in Iago Shakespeare created the most compelling villain in Western literature, in Othello and Desdemona he gave us our most tragic and unforgettable lovers.

O! beware, my lord, of jealousy;
It is the green-ey'd monster which doth mock
The meat it feeds on.

Othello features Shakespeare's finest villain Iago. I'd be interested in a student's interpretation of his mental state, insecurities, narcissistic and entitled tendencies, etc. Does Othello truly love Desdemona? If so, how does his love for her change on a dime on nothing more than a second-rate, B-class soldier's say-so?!

It felt like a 17th century (?) soap opera, full of deception, lies, misunderstandings and death. I felt like it was better than Romeo and Juliet, though it still took some motivation to read
