“O, beware, my lord, of jealousy!
It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock
The meat it feeds on.”

So warns Iago, the devious ensign who serves the Moorish general Othello, the hero of the play. While Iago pretends friendship to Othello, he secretly schemes to make Othello jealous and distrusting of his wife, Desdemona. As The Tragedy of Othello, the Moor of Venice opens, Othello and Desdemona have just eloped. When Othello is called to fend off a Turkish attack in Cyprus, Iago unleashes his plans to poison the newlyweds’ happiness—leaving a wake of destruction too tragic to comprehend. What motivates a man to do such deeds? Is Iago pure evil? See for yourself as you read Othello, a classic story of love, jealousy, and betrayal.
