Othello (Penguin Classics)





Inexorably poisoned against the woman he loves by his trusted friend Iago, Shakespeare's Othello is a timeless tragic figure. This Penguin Shakespeare edition is edited by Kenneth Muir with an introduction by Tom McAlindon. 'O! beware, my lord, of jealousy; It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock The meat it feeds on.' A popular soldier and newly married man, Othello seems to be in an enviable position. And yet, when his supposed friend Iago sows doubts in his mind about his wife Desdemona's fidelity, and his friend Cassio's true intentions, he is gradually consumed by suspicion. In this powerful tragedy, innocence is corrupted and trust is eroded as every relationship is drawn into a tangled web of jealousies. This book contains a general introduction to Shakespeare's life and Elizabethan theatre, a separate introduction to Othello, a chronology, suggestions for further reading, an essay discussing performance options on both stage and screen, and a commentary. William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was born to John Shakespeare and Mary Arden some time in late April 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon. He wrote about 38 plays (the precise number is uncertain), many of which are regarded as the most exceptional works of drama ever produced, including Romeo and Juliet (1595), Henry V (1599), Hamlet (1601), Othello (1604), King Lear (1606) and Macbeth (1606), as well as a collection of 154 sonnets, which number among the most profound and influential love-poetry in English.

Sempre que ia na biblioteca e via um livro de Shakespeare, passava longe porque pensava que não iria entender nada. Um dia estava na biblioteca da escola e sei lá porque retirei ele da estante e comecei a ler. Só acordei para a vida quando uma colega pediu licença para passar. Então, notei que estava sentada no chão há mais ou menos duas horas lendo. A história é atemporal. Iago é uma serpente mas, ao mesmo tempo é muito humano. Existem muitas pessoas como ele. Otelo é um bom aviso do... leia mais
