The story revolves around two characters, Othello and Iago. Othello is a Moorish general in the Venetian army charged with the generalship of Venice on the eve of war with the Ottoman Turks over the island of Cyprus. He has just married Desdemona, a beautiful and wealthy white Venetian, much younger than he, against the wishes of her father. Iago is Othello's jealous and bitter ensign who maliciously goads his master's jealousy until the usually stoic Moor kills his beloved wife in a fit of blind rage. Due to its enduring themes of passion, jealousy and race, Othello is still widely performed and has inspired numerous adaptations. Roderigo, a wealthy and dissolute gentleman, complains to his friend Iago, an ensign, that Iago has not told him about the secret marriage between Desdemona, the daughter of a senator named Brabantio, and Othello, a Moorish general in the Venetian army.
William Shakespeare is widely regarded as one of the greatest writers in the English language. He was born on or around 23 April in Stratford-upon-Avon, the eldest son of John Shakespeare, a prosperous glover and local dignitary, and Mary Arden, the daughter of a wealthy farmer. He may also have seen plays by the travelling theatre groups touring Stratford in the s and 70s. At 18, William married Anne Hathaway, and the couple had three children over the next few years. No-one knows what Shakespeare did between — the last documentary record of his youth in Stratford — and when he is first mentioned in London. Between about and , Shakespeare wrote at least 37 plays and collaborated on several more. Shakespeare also wrote 4 poems, and a famous collection of Sonnets which was first published in

Othello , in full Othello, the Moor of Venice , tragedy in five acts by William Shakespeare , written in —04 and published in in a quarto edition from a transcript of an authorial manuscript. The text published in the First Folio of seems to have been based on a version revised by Shakespeare himself that sticks close to the original almost line by line but introduces numerous substitutions of words and phrases, as though Shakespeare copied it over himself and rewrote as he copied. The play is set in motion when Othello , a heroic black general in the service of Venice, appoints Cassio and not Iago as his chief lieutenant. With the unwitting aid of Emilia, his wife, and the willing help of Roderigo, a fellow malcontent, Iago carries out his plan. Making use of a handkerchief belonging to Desdemona and found by Emilia when Othello has unwittingly dropped it, Iago persuades Othello that Desdemona has given the handkerchief to Cassio as a love token.
The Book This retelling of Shakespeare's play recounts the story of Othello, a mercenary soldier who falls in love with the lord's daughter, Desdemona. Because Othello is black and Desdemona white, there is a great deal of controversy surrounding their marriage. It is, however, the underhanded maneuvering of Othello's friend, Iago, that ultimately leads to tragedy. Passed over for promotion time and again, Iago uses this opportunity to undermine Othello's position within the King's army. He plants seeds of doubt about Desdemona's fidelity. Once those seeds blossom, Othello's jealousy knows no bounds. He kills Desdemona in a rage, and then ends his own life as well.
