Othello: Complete & Unabridged

Othello: Complete & Unabridged Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

O! Beware, my lord, of jealousy: it is the green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds on.

So cautions the villainous Iago, and the stage is set for the illusion and deception that results from his festering envy. Othello is Shakespeare's timeless tale of sexual passion, mistrust, and murder. It is freshly illuminated in this new comic book format, as full-color panels picture Othello's tortured suspicions, and readers see both sides of the renowned double meaning in Shakespeare's verse.

Every line of dialogue from the First Folio edition of the play has been preserved and illustrated. Creating the unsettling perception that "nothing is but what is not," Argentine artist Oscar Zarate evokes Othello's deterioration in watercolors, inks, and colored pencils that keep pace with the agitated action, and accelerate the tension to the pitch of a live performance.

Illustrated by Oscar Zarate.

Synopsis:

The tragedy of Othello-in action-packed pictures, combined with full dialogue. Be front and center as Shakespeare's timeless tale of sexual passion, mistrust and murder unfolds-scene by scene, line by line, and all in vivid color.

"A useful teaching tool." -The New York Times

"Fearsome." -The Washington Post

"Comprehension is aided through the marvelous illustrations, not through a simplified text." -Library Journal

"Very valuable for those students initially staggered by Shakespeare. It fills a very specific need." -Peggy O'Brien, Folger Shakespeare Library

Synopsis:

Action-packed pictures bring Shakespeare's timeless tale of sexual passion, mistrust, and murder to a vivid climax.
