Shakespeare - Othello (Readers' Guides to Essential Criticism)
In this Readers' Guide, Nicholas Potter traces the critical history of the play from the earliest pronouncements to present-day criticism.The most significant critical accounts are excerpted and discussed, placed within their historical context and assessed for their contribution to the developing evaluation of the work.The Guide assumes no particular view of the continuing debate, but tries to do justice to the variety of opinion, as well as pointing out significant themes and recurring concerns.The ugly racism of many critical accounts, and the inadequacy of many attempts to face up to the issues raised by the play, are not glossed over.Othello is a play that challenges many received opinions and that still provokes controversy. Would it be worth study if it did not?
'I continue to find the Readers' Guides indispensable for teaching - they really give students a sense of criticism having a history' - Professor Rachel Bowlby, University of York 'The series looks really excellent - attractively produced, user friendly; and outstanding value for money' - --Ronald Knowles, Reader, University of Readingshow more
