The Play

To read the play, click on one of the links below:

Alternately, you can go to Project Gutenberg and download one of three versions of the play, each one available as either a TXT or ZIP file.



  • The Tragedy of Othello. Created by Ron Mann for his English 33 course at Beaumont High School in Alberta, Canada. Includes a lot of great information about Drama in general, and about Othello in particular, including character synopses and a plot summary.
  • Shakespeare's Othello. This is a great page done by Eric Knepp, a student at Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania. Includes a brief summary of the characters, short scene-by-scene summaries, and pages devoted to the history of and racial issues in the play. As a pleasant surprise, it also has a page which lists the works cited in the website (more stuedents need to learn to do this).
  • Phillips Academy English: Othello. This page contains a series of short essays written and defended by student in a Shakespeare class at the Phillips Academy in Andover, Pennsylvania. Some of them are no more than a couple of paragraphs long, but most of them are pretty interesting.
