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.
In this study, Edward Pechter describes the play's design and effects in a way that accounts for its extraordinary power to engage the interests of audiences and readers not just in our time but throughout history.

Edward Pechter is professor of English at Concordia University in Montreal.Review:
"Edward Pechter's brilliant new study takes us as close as possible to the centre of the play's agony. Learned and scholarly-but also always lively and provocative-Pechter is the ideal guide to the ways in which we have to confront the appalling experience of Othello." -- Peter Holland, Shakespeare Institute, University of Birmingham, Stratford-upon-Avon
