About the Authors
  • This third edition of Othello offers a completely new introduction by Christina Luckyj, providing readers with a nuanced understanding of early modern theatre and culture, and demonstrating how careful attention to Shakespeare's language, staging and dramaturgy can open up fresh interpretations of the play. Tracing critical and performance trends up to the present day, Luckyj shows how the drama taps into contemporary cultural paradoxes surrounding blackness, marriage, and politics to create a powerful double perspective, illuminating the creative and destructive power of stories and of human love itself. Supplemented by an updated reading list and extensive illustrations, this edition also features revised commentary notes, offering the very best in contemporary criticism of this great tragedy.

    • The textual commentary has been revised and updated with an eye, and ear, to the contemporary student reader
    • Provides an updated list of further readings to reflect the latest developments in Shakespearean criticism
    • The introduction's emphasis upon performance equips students to analyse the significance of different stagings, from first performances up to the groundbreaking productions of the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2015 and the New York City Theater in 2016
