This second edition of Othello has a new introduction by Ayanna Thompson, addressing such key issues as race, religion and gender, as well as ways in which the play has been adapted in more recent times. The new introduction attends to the play's different meanings throughout history, while articulating the historical context in which Othello was created, paying particular attention to Shakespeare's source materials and the evidence about early modern constructions of racial and religious difference. It also explores the life of the play in different historical moments, demonstrating how meanings and performances develop and metamorphose over time.
Ayanna Thompson is Professor of English Literature at George Washington University, USA and author of several books about Shakespeare and race.
E. A. J. Honigmann was Joseph Cowen Professor of English Literature at the Universty of Newcastle, UK.
