Overview

In this tragedy by William Shakespeare, the heroic Moor of Venice is driven to suspicion and finally murderous rage against his true love Desdemona by the cunning and hateful Iago.

This edition features an overview of Shakespeare’s works by Sylvan Barnet, former Chairman of the English Department at Tufts University, as well as a comprehensive stage and screen history, dramatic criticism from the past and present, and sources from which Shakespeare derived this great work.
