Othello is one of Shakespeare's most terrifying tragedies because of the convincing virtue of its heroes, Othello the Moor and his Venetian wife Desdemona, and the spontaneous, relentless malice of its traitorous villain, Iago, Othello's trusted ensign. As A.C. Bradley has written, "The reader's heart and mind are held in a vice, experiencing the extremes of pity and fear, sympathy and repulsion, sickening hope and dreadful expectation," and that's just as true today as it was at the play's premiere in 1604.

Join us as we discuss and read through one of the most powerful works about sex, race, and murderous jealousy ever created.
