    Summary

    Iago must be hearing voices. Voices that tell him he's flustered around the Moor, that he thinks the Moor is beautiful, and even to hold the Moor's hand! Iago is stupid. This is just his internal monologue and he's hella gay. Don't worry Iago it happens to us all.

    Summary

    An alternate storytelling of the iconic, romantic, tear-jerking work of Shakespeare, Othello. In this parallel world, the evil ancient, Iago, seeks only for the love of his general, Othello, and does anything, and everything, he can to win the heart of the stubborn Moor. Even if that means removing his lieutenant first. Even if that means having to plot.
    Even if that means murder.

    Summary

    "Four missed calls. The notifications flashed across the phone’s small screen as he picked it up from the couch onto which it had been angrily flung. Cassio, every time. Cassio, the looker, the rake, the right hand. The usurper. Puffed-up, arrogant, self-important wanker--! But. He had called. Four times. Called him four times, and that in itself was anachronistic enough to give him pause. He could see no reason for such desperate seeking of contact. Their work was done: Othello’s farce of a marriage...dealt with; Brabantio powerless and in a right strop. The newlyweds off shagging somewhere before the tour, warming up to the music of groans and bodies joined in unholy communion, playing the swan song to their hideous love in this place, this time, this life. Roderigo gulled, driven to the brink of madness by the twin flames of elation and the passion of his own stupidity, buoyed up on the rising smoke of hopes no more substantial than sparks, bringing destruction in their effervescent glory before fading to nothing ere one could say they lightened. Cassio...well. Cassio, sitting like Patience on a monument, smiling at grief-- his grief. Holding his place. Owning the piece of-- no. That mattered not."

    Summary

    "It was about love. That's what you've gotta understand. Don't talk to me about race. Don't talk to me about politics. It was love. Simple as that."

    An analysis of the theme of love as a precursor to hate in Othello, comparing Shakespeare's text to Andrew Davies's 2001 screenplay.

    Summary

    A queer reading of the text 'Othello' can be taken in two ways- firstly, that Othello himself presents very much the type of machoistic man who, at the time of Shakespeare, could potentially be more interested in the company of men. OR, secondly, that Iago's schemes stem from a confused lust and hatred for Othello in equal terms.

    This is simply a suggestion based on the latter reading, set as if it were a prequel to the events within the play itself.

    Summary

    '...But perchance it was not that at all. No, perhaps it was his eyes, his deeply shadowed, astonishingly pale eyes, that touched the place within her where no one had dared venture before, for fear of the diabolism that lay therein. Like chips of January ice, cutting and raw, they snapped up to meet her own too suddenly for comfort, narrowing briefly into invisibility before widening once more, baring to her unexpectedly ravenous soul a stunning acuity and choking, yet liberating fire. O, that fire, that bright and baleful gleam! It was one she knew well, too well: one she saw reflected within herself every moment. It was a fire of ambition: ruthless ambition, and passion, and an inherent danger that set some girlishly ignominious part of her soul, that she had thought lay dormant in her aspish breast, to blazing, alight with the searing black glow of glorious villainy....'

    It is not wickedness. It is not jealousy. It is not desire, or hatred, or any of that. It is only love. Simple as that.

    Summary

    Othello truly is a story about jealousy, but seeing it only as that is binding. Othello should be seen as a play with many smaller themes factoring in, but the most prominent theme: Love.
