The purpose of this series is to promote the study of writing in the English language through the introduction of the major figures writing in English throughout the ages. They provide an analytical and historical framework for understanding their subjects. "Othello" is one of Shakespeare's most controversial major tragedies. Matt Simpson's exposition of the pivotal role of Iago, the nature of Othello's and Desdemona's relationship - based on "hope more than achievement" - and Shakespeare's treatment of race, is vigorous. He shows how the play is of its time, providing knowledge of its context and meaning, while persuading us that it is also "for all time".
