Othello, a soldier in the service of the Venetian Republic, is tricked by his villainous ensign, Iago, into believing that his beloved wife, Desdemona, is an adulteress. In a fit of emotional imbalance, Othello murders her in the most ungracious manner. What happens when he comes to know that she is innocent? About the Author William Shakespeare began his career as an actor, writer and part owner of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, later known as King’s Men, in London. Often regarded as the ‘Bard of Avon’ he is one of the world’s pre-eminent dramatists. Most of his known works have been produced between 1589 and 1613. His plays demonstrate the expansiveness of his imagination and the extent of his learning. Shakespeare introduced prose comedy in the histories of the late 1590s—Henry IV, Part I and Part II and Henry V—after the lyrical Richard II. Julius Caesar introduced a new kind of drama. Shakespeare’s sequence of great comedies continue with Merchant of Venice, Much Ado About Nothing, As You Like It and Twelfth Night. Until about 1608, he mainly wrote tragedies including Hamlet, Othello, King Lear and Macbeth. Antony and Cleopatra and Coriolanus—his last major tragedies, contain some of his finest poetry. A true genius, Shakespeare’s popular characters and plots are studied, performed, reinterpreted and discussed till today.
