The Plays of William Shakespeare are great Literature, but they are PLAYS!, not Novels. That is, they are intended to be PERFORMED, not READ.
This edition of the "Othello" resolves this problem very nicely, by combining the COMPLETE text of the play, with footnotes explaining archaic terms, with total illustration of the events of the play. Combining the written word with images is a powerful storytelling tool, & Shakespeare was, first & formost, a storyteller.
If you can't see the play performed live, this is even better than a video.
NOTE TO TEACHERS & HOMESCHOOLERS!--
This edition, with both the images & the complete text of the play, gives a student a much better understanding of the events in "Othello" than the words alone.
