    “I wanted an edition of Othello that had the necessary footnotes, background material, and a good selection of recent critical articles that would be accessible to students and would spark class discussions. This was it.”
    —Deborah Montuori, Shippensburg University

    ·The First Folio text (1623).
    · An introduction, explanatory footnotes, note on the text, and textual notes by Edward Pechter.
    · Fifteen illustrations.
    · Giraldi Cinthio’s sixteenth-century story in its entirety, which Shakespeare used for both the plot and many details of Othello.
    · A generous selection of interpretive responses to Othello from its origins to the present day, including—new to the Second
