Othello, a successful Moorish general in the service of Venice, elopes with Desdemona, the daughter of a Venetian noble. His evil lieutenant Iago works on his jealousy and persuades him that his wife is unfaithful. Overwrought, Othello strangles her then kills himself in grief after the truth is revealed.
I liked it.
Spoilers: This was my first Shakespeare play. I enjoyed reading Othello. It kept me waiting on what Iago would do and how Othello would react. It is a tragedy so don’t expect a romantic, happy ending, but overall it kept me thinking about how the plot is very true even now.
