I did not enjoy reading this tragedy as much as Macbeth or Julius Caesar or Hamlet. I felt there is less dramatic flare in Othello as in the before mentioned. I've probably given shallow reasons for my not liking this tragedy as well as others, but Othello "just didn't do it for me."

Iago is bitter over the loss of an important job promotion. How can he get revenge? Aha! Nothing could hurt Othello worse than the ruin of his own marriage.

William Shakespeare was born on April 1564 in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, on England’s Avon River. When he was eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway. The couple had three children—their older daughter, Susanna, and the twins, Judith and Hamnet. Hamnet, Shakespeare’s only son, died in childhood.The bulk of Shakespeare’s working life was spent, not in Stratford, but in the theater world of London, where he established himself professionally by the early 1590s. He had a successful career in London as a playwright and actor and was a shareholder in the acting company the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men. He produced most of his plays between 1589 and 1613. Sometime between 1610 and 1613, Shakespeare is thought to have retired from the stage and returned home to Stratford, where he died in 1616.

For us today reading Othello there can be no real surprises. The story is so much a part of our cultural history...Yet going back now, some 50 plus years since first I read the play, I was gripped by the drama of it; dreading what was coming...A simply marvelous piece of literature.

Not my favorite Shakespeare. I thought it lacked the depth of Hamlet or MacBeth. But perhaps that is my fault for not reading this in an academic setting...But Iago’s character is certainly interesting with all of the conniving and manipulation.
