by William Shakespeare

Othello is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare in 1565. It is considered to be one of his greatest tragedies.

The story revolves around its two main characters: Othello, a Moorish general in the Venetian army, and his traitorous midshipman, Iago.

The plot is inspired by the love and revenge story of Othello, a Venetian general, and Desdemona, the daughter of Senator Brabancio.

The story takes place in Venice and in a fictional city on Cyprus during the war between Venice and Turkey. Othello is a Venetian general of African descent, and Desdemona is his wife. The story is full of jealousy, suspicion, and betrayal, leading to the death of Othello, Desdemona, and other characters.

The central theme of the play is love, but it also deals with issues of race, religion, and war.

Tush! never tell me; I take it much unkindly
That thou, Iago, who hast had my purse
As if the strings were thine, shouldst know of this.
'Sblood, but you will not hear me:
If ever I did dream of such a matter, Abhor me."
