Course Description: This course analyzes and interprets Shakespeare's Othello from a range of perspectives. A close reading of the text provides familiarity with the art of Shakespearean language, while questions around such topics as love, hatred, gender, race, family, and community lend an understanding of the play in a variety of contexts. The course also examines Othello in performance, mainly by discussing how film adaptations of the play make changes to what we find on the page. Students practice reading characters' lines aloud both before and after each class session. Assessment: exam, class participation, attendance.
