    3. Not trying to upset Proust or Joyce, but these days, it's Shakespeare who's been taking me to bed every night. He's become part of my daily routine and his are my last conscious thoughts before departing to dreamland. Granted, it could be another playwriter or even a regular book. All I need really are small chapters that I can finish quickly when slumber's tentacles start to wrap my body and their calming effects slowly soothe my mind. But it's been Shakespeare and any insomniac who's recently [...]

    4. Jealousy, "The green -ey'd monster," that is what the wise Shakespeare wroteOthello loved his wife, Desdemona, too much so, nothing could continue that fever, emotions lessen over time.The mighty general was a very capable soldier of Venice, commanding respect on the battlefield, he could do no wrong, brave, ferocious, dynamic, his sword deadly, still life is more complicated than just war, though, the Moor was a fish out of water, in a quite different, and strange culture, becoming a Christian, [...]

    5. I have always admired this play as Shakespeare's most theatrical tragedy, but I also feel that it often veers too close to melodrama. Shaw remarked that Othello is written "in the style of Italian opera," and it shares with Verdi and Donizetti the same big emotions, the same clear demarcation of good and evil, that give Lucia and Trovatore their emotional intensity--and their lack of essential seriousness too. During this reading, however, I began to realize that Othello is much more than the gr [...]

    6. Will you, I pray, demand that demi-devilWhy he hath thus ensnared my soul and body?-Othello, end of Act VWhen I was about 9 years old, I put a healthy, live mouse into my parents' microwave oven. It was a summer day and I was all alone. I had this devilish feeling inside me. I knew it was wrong, but I had to do it. I grabbed a kitchen chair, dragged it across the floor, stood on it, opened the door, and threw the mouse in. Then I hit start.At first it was no big deal. The light turned on inside, [...]

    7. “O, beware, my lord, of jealousy;It is the green-ey'd monster, which doth mockThe meat it feeds on."This famous quote made my 14-year-old son, currently reading Othello for the first time (it is his first Shakespeare ever), come into my room to complain. He was deeply frustrated with the sweet tongue of the evil Iago, speaking in one way and acting in another, spreading fake news and rumours while pretending to be supportive and unselfish. "Iago is even worse than Uriah Heep", he said, referri [...]

    8. “The trust, the office I do hold of youNot only take away, but let your sentenceEven fall upon my life.”Act I, Scene 3.This is the Othello the reader meets at the beginning of this tragedy. The Renaissance ideal, an archetypal hero, sure of himself, valiant and honorable, in complete self-control when falsely accused of forcing fair Desdemona, the daughter of a nobleman, to marry him. When confronted by the Duke, his defense plea shines with splendid poetry, calm dignity and the voice of rea [...]

    9. Book Review4+ of 5 stars to Othello, a tragic play written in 1603, by William Shakespeare. When it comes to writing a thorough review about this Shakespearean work of art, it could take weeks and days to craft perfection; however, I've already stumbled upon a few across , and the world doesn't need another interpretation by a middle-aged white guy. Nor does it need my opinion about what this says of a person's ethnic background, skin color or personality traits. But what the world does need to [...]

    10. I’ve always believed that Iago is one of the greatest literary villains ever! A nemesis who was so twisted by hate and even acknowledged that he had no good reason for wanting to destroy the hero. Iago is the archetype for so many modern villains.Whenever I reread “Othello”, I picture a cinematic version where Denzel Washington plays Othello, Cate Blanchett plays Desdemona, and Tim Roth plays Iago…the movie wouldn’t even have to be titled “William Shakespeare’s Othello”, it could [...]

    11. *Reread for class January 2016*This is the first Shakespeare play I read on my own and rereading it and studying it in class is giving me a whole new perspective on it which makes me love it even more!

    13. Here's my thing:Who am I supposed to root for?Othello? Who doesn't seem to know how to communicate with anyone? He gets so jealous and infuriated by conjecture about his wife (of less than a week, I believe) that he has a seizure. Then proceeds to treat said wife absolutely horribly? Desmonda? In her first speech, she defends her marriage to Othello then does nothing else. She seemed constantly determined to please everyone. Joking with Iago, defending Cassio, repeatedly proclaiming her love for [...]

    14. I have now read Shakespeare's Sonnets and 9 of his 38 plays, mostly the better known ones, slowly working my way through his canon. Othello was, compared to some of the others, an easy read. The themes running through the play are familiar ones with jealously being primary. But interracial prejudice and racism is what sets this play apart from the others, and probably defines it for most modern day readers.

    15. How does one begin to review a play by Shakespeare!? Honestly, I haven't enough words in my vocabulary to do his work justice and find myself repeatedly blown away by both the depth of emotion I experience whilst reading him and overwhelmed at joining the generations whose long-lasting adoration hasn't allowed his name to become relegated to history.Whilst I have still only read a small selection of his work, I have found that Shakespeare has managed this ageless devotion due to the themes that [...]

    16. “Tis in ourselves that we are thus or thus. Our bodies are our gardens to the which our wills are gardeners.”― William Shakespeare, OthelloOthello is one of my favorite of Shakespeare's plays. I'm all about the villians, and damn, Iago isn't JUST a nearly perfect villian, but carries away almost 1/3 the lines in this play. He owns the stage. It is like Shakespeare scraped every rotten grain off the soiled shoe of humanity and mixed it with beautiful prose. Iago isn't a monster because he i [...]

    17. Reread for Senior Thesis July 2017: GOD BLESS THIS BOOK *screams* ****LOVED THIS! Probably my second favorite Shakespeare play behind King Lear (:

    18. I decided to start my mission to read all 38 of The Complete Plays of Shakespeare with Othello. It turned out to be a good decision to start with the New Cambridge edition.I was considering this reading as an academic reading of the bard and it generally took me almost 3 hours of constant reading to get through one average sized (10-15 pages) scene! Even after reading every scene three times - once aloud and twice normally - I still never felt I had enough of it, and moved on to the next only du [...]

    21. Othello is the weakest of Shakespeare’s four major tragedies. Not only does its body count pale in comparison to that of the others, but also its plot is not nearly as complex, nor its themes as broad. At the heart of Othello lies a false accusation—Othello is duped into believing his woman has been unfaithful to him. Sound familiar? Except that, this being a tragedy, there is no kissing and making up at the end. Acts of suicide and murder instead take their positions of prominence here.Othe [...]

    22. Tra tutte le tragedie di Shakespeare che ho letto, la mia preferita. Coinvolgente fino allo spasimo. Al punto che a volte mi sono anche ritrovata a fantasticare su un immaginario lieto fine Una curiosità: nel corso della lettura, mi ha meravigliato scoprire che i versi di Shakespeare sono stati utilizzati pari-pari da Modugno e Pasolini per farne la canzone Che cosa sono le nuvole.

    23. Here is my copy of Othello with the felty suspicious looking fox bookmark that Karen made for my birthday: He's protecting this book, and doesn't trust anyone!Othello would have done well to be a little less trustworthy. Silly Moor. A bunch of other reviews I noticed have pointed out that this is in some way a great study of sexual jealousy. I think this is an interesting reading of the play, and really more telling of the reader and his or her own feelings / history than the play itself. If thi [...]

    24. I had rather be a toad and live upon the vapor of a dungeon than keep a corner in the thing I love for others’ use.This play recently reasserted itself into my life after I was taken to see it performed here in Madrid. Though I couldn’t understand very much, since it was in elaborate and quick Spanish, I still enjoyed it. (Among other things, the performance featured lots of semi-nudity, men wearing gas masks on dog leashes, and M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes.”) Inspired, I decided to watch th [...]

    25. Interpolation in the original text recently discovered in the Bodleian Library, Oxford, England. Believed to be by Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford. I have rendered the non-Shakespearean text in bold :OTHELLO I have a salt and sorry rheum offends me;Lend me thy handkerchiefSDEMONA Here, my lord.OTHELLO That which I gave youSDEMONA I have it not about me.OTHELLO Not?DESDEMONA No, indeed, my lord.OTHELLO That is a fault. That handkerchiefDid an Egyptian to my mother give;She was a charmer, and [...]

    26. Shakespeare's classic play about jealousy, neurosis, obsession, guilt and bedroom violence. Was Iago Shalespeare's most villainous villain? Maybe, my money is still on King Lear's Edmund, but Iago has served as a template for back stabbing double dealing bad guys ever since.Another example of Shakespeare's amazing ability at characterization and for psychological drama.

    27. A political tale of ambition and jealousy3 November 2012 Othello is can be a very painful play both to read and to watch. It is not that it is a bad play, no, it is a brilliant play - the reason that I say Othello is painful is because it is one of those plays that makes you squirm and feel really uncomfortable because it is doing what literature is supposed to do: hold a mirror up to life. The first time I read it in university it was painful and I thought that it was because at university you [...]

    28. Othello and Macbeth have long been competing for the title of my favourite Shakespeare play. I'm still not sure. The protagonists are similar in that they both instigate their own downfall through fear and paranoia and jealousy - that's what makes their tales so wonderfully tragic. The fantasy aspect of Macbeth works in its favour, but then, it doesn't have Iago. It's a difficult one.
