Edited by Norman Sanders
Part of the The New Cambridge Shakespeare series
The New Cambridge Shakespeare appeals to students worldwide for its up-to-date scholarship and emphasis on performance.
The series features line-by-line commentaries and textual notes on the plays and poems.
Introductions are regularly refreshed with accounts of new critical, stage and screen interpretations.
This second edition of Othello retains the text and Introduction prepared by Norman Sanders and features a new section by Scott McMillin on recent scholarship and key performances of the play since the 1980s.
Building on the full and well-illustrated stage history compiled by Sanders, McMillin focuses on political, feminist and postcolonial treatments of Othello in various parts of the world and discusses important performances on stage, film and television.
Sanders' discussion of the stylistic and racial problems facing modern readers and spectators is complemented by McMillin who explores the influence of new historicism and cultural materialism and the issue of black/white casting of the main characters.
