Englischer Text mit deutschen Worterklärungen / English text with annotations in German "Othello" ist bei Kritikern und Publikum gleichermaßen beliebt, was zweifellos auf die gelungene Verbindung von kompakter Handlung und unerschöpflich erscheinendem Aussagepotenzial zurückzuführen ist. Wir sehen heute in "Othello" Bezüge, die Shakespeares Zeitgenossen aufgrund eines völlig anderen Weltbildes entgingen. So hat sich in den letzten Jahren auch zunehmend der Englischunterricht für das Stück interessiert, etwa in Zusammenhang mit dem Thema Ausgrenzung und Rassismus. Mit dem "Othello" in der Roten Reihe steht nun eine Ausgabe zur Verfügung, die in bewährter Weise den ungekürzten Originaltext mit allen notwendigen sprachlichen und sachlichen Erläuterungen bietet. Enthalten sind außerdem Literaturhinweise und ein Nachwort. Mit Verszählung der gedruckten Ausgabe: Buch und E-Book sind parallel benutzbar.

During the past twenty years or so, Othello has become the Shakespearean tragedy that speaks most powerfully to our contemporary concerns. Focusing on race and gender (and on class, ethnicity, sexuality, and nationality), the play talks about what audiences want to talk about. Yet at the same time, as refracted through Iago, it forces us to hear what we do not want to hear; like the characters in the play, we become trapped in our own prejudicial malice and guilt.

This addition to the Bloom's Guides series features an annotated bibliography and a listing of works by the author for further reading.

This is the first scholarly edition of Othello to give full attention to the work's bold treatment of racial themes. Shakespeare's decision to place a sympathetic black hero at the centre of his tragedy was unique in its time; but, as the lively introduction shows, the play's relationship to the history of racial thinking remains controversial. Designed to meet the needs of theatre professionals, as well as general readers, the edition includes an extensive performancehistory, a commentary illuminating the complexities of Shakespeare's language, and an indispensable appendix on the music in the play.
