Lago, a Venetian soldier and ensign, is passed over for promotion by Othello, a Moorish nobleman who has reached the pinnacle of his career: he is general of the Venetian army and has secretly married Desdemona, daughter of an important statesman in Venice. Partly to be avenged for this slight and partly because of his dark nature, Iago has determined to destroy Othello’s happiness.
Andrew Matthews's vibrant and accessible re-telling, coupled with expressive and funny illustrations by Tony Ross, provide an introduction to this important part of English cultural heritage in the most enjoyable way.
Perfect for a beginner in English Literature or cultural studies. The stories come originally from the highly successful gift collection The Orchard Book of Shakespeare Stories. Also included are useful notes on the theme of jealousy in the story and a background to the Globe theatre.
