Summary
This story of the black general Othello's doomed love for the beautiful Desdemona is a tale of pride, passion, jealousy and betrayal. Lester's prose retelling of Shakespeare's play emphasizes the impact of racism on Othello's actions. Lester introduces some audacious changes, such as making Iago and his wife black, and hints at an earlier attraction between Othello and Emily that provides some additional motivation for Iago's betrayal of his friend. <i>Othello</i> provides a readable introduction to Shakespeare's work for eighth- and ninth-grade students. (Audience: 7th to 10th grade) -- Description by: Tom Reynolds
