Synopsis

Othello by Prof. Harold Bloom

This is an invaluable study guide to Shakespeare's Othello . The most striking difference between Othello and Shakespeare's other tragedies is its more intimate scale. Since the play focuses on personal rather than public life, Othello 's private descent into jealous obsession is especially chilling to behold.This invaluable new study guide to one of Shakespeare's greatest plays contains a selection of the finest criticism on Othello , from the 17th and 18th centuries up to the 21st. Students will benefit from the additional features included in this volume, such as an introduction by Harold Bloom, an accessible summary, analysis of key passages, a comprehensive list of characters, a biography of Shakespeare, and more.It includes criticism from: Voltaire (1733); Samuel Johnson (1765); William Hazlitt (1817); Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1818); John Quincy Adams (1836); George Bernard Shaw (1897); Harold C. Goddard (1951); Kenneth Burke (1951); W.H. Auden (1961); A.D. Nuttall (1983); and, Frank Kermode (2000).
