William Shakespeare

Othello

Othello, The Moor of Venice is a tragedy by William Shakespeare based on the short story «Moor of Venice» by Cinthio, believed to have been written in approximately 1603. The work revolves around four central characters: Othello, his wife Desdemona, his lieutenant Cassio, and his trusted advisor Iago. Attesting to its enduring popularity, the play appeared in 7 editions between 1622 and 1705. Because of its varied themes — racism, love, jealousy and betrayal — it remains relevant to the present day and is often performed in professional and community theatres alike. The play has also been the basis for numerous operatic, film and literary adaptations. (From Wikipedia)

    Othello is a very nice book to read, although it's quite tragic. It's a matter of jealousy, and the fact that you're not supposed to be jealous. Shakespeare is a very old man who lived in the 17th century, and he used Shakespearean English, which is what he created and used in all his plays, so the words are real, and this is not a rip-off of any film, because he wrote the first book.

    It is silliness to live when to live is torment; and then have we a prescription to die when death is our physician.
