    " I absolutely love this play! I got into Shakespeare when I started at my second college and this is by far one of his best plays! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 4/27/2011

    " Reading the play left me morbidly impressed with Iago, bored with Othello, and weepy over the fruitless loss of all of the good people. I henceforth swear to be a less jealous person. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Safraz | 4/25/2011

    " Iago is the greatest villain in English literature. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 4/24/2011

    " Easily my favorite Shakespeare. I think Iago might be the best villain of all time ever.

    Also, this gets extra props for spawning the opera, which, though deviates from the plot significantly, is still quite good in its own right.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judith | 4/23/2011

    " Currently re-reading. I've forgotten how good Shakespeare can be... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 4/21/2011

    " Another twisted Shakespeare play to rattle your brain, it was really entertaining, and tragic, humorous in intervals, and a good read. I still feel Much Ado About Nothing is still my favorite, but I did like it. "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
