Othello, Paperback / softback Book

Othello Paperback / softback

Edited by Lena Cowen Orlin

Part of the New Casebooks series

Description

With its focus on gender, power, race, sexuality, and violence, Othello is an important site for new critical approaches to the study of Shakespeare's works.

Both criticism and culture are represented in this collection of recent essays which provides readers with examples of feminist, new-historicist, cultural materialist, deconstructive, and post-colonial perspectives on Othello.

With discussions of recent stage and screen productions, and analysis of the use of the play in such contemporary events as the O.J.

Simpson murder trial, this compelling critical volume presents a wide variety of ways of understanding the continuing significance of Shakespeare's play both in his own time and in ours.
