Again, can't give much of a review because I'm blazing through these books for class lol. That and I think the level of analysis for a class and the mode of reading is different from what I'd think and feel if it was not assigned work. Still, I thought this was really good, with masterful, stunning lines from Shakespeare as usual. Iago was fantastic. What stood out and made Othello a play that shot to the top of my favorites list(for Shakespeare, anyway) is the intimacy in the relationships between characters. It's realistic, yet unreal. Many other plays seem to have unnecessary parts or sprawl all over the place, but Othello is probably the smallest-scale Shakespeare I've read yet.
