Othello is a major shakespearean text, studied
widely and often adapted for film and TV and is
especially challenging for a multicultural society.
Othello lends itself to criticism through discussion of
the major characters although this study also focuses
on recent criticism's analysis of the characters as
"signifiers". The study of the key characters takes
the discussion of the text immediately into the
central issues of "otherness", gender, race and
power.
