The most striking difference between Othello and Shakespeare's other tragedies is its more intimate scale. Since the work focuses on personal rather than public life, Othello's private descent into jealous obsession plays out in the domestic sphere and is rendered all the more chilling for it.

This invaluable reference guide to one of Shakespeare's greatest dramas offers a range of contemporary essays and critical viewpoints and is introduced by scholar Harold Bloom.
