IN LANGUAGE EVERYONE CAN UNDERSTAND
Shakespeare's tragedy of the Moor whose love for Desdemona is destroyed by jealousy unfolds in easy-to-follow English as we speak it today. Othello's passion and Iago's treachery become clear in this straightforward modern version.
The complete original text is laid out side-by-side with a complete modern translation. You'll find this book ideal for instant reference and understanding, whether you are reading Shakespeare for pleasure or studying for an exam. --This text refers to the Kindle Edition edition.

I've had mixed success with some of the free Kindle versions of Shakespeare. Some have been good, some have been awful. This is an exceptional version. It's formatted nicely and is easy to read. The only "lack" is that it is without line numbers, so if you were to use this for academic reasons, you might have an issue or two.
Thus far, Othello's my favorite free Shakespeare play. I missed how much of a jerk Iago was, and all the deception that lead to Othello killing Desdemona.
If you've got a Kindle and want to read Shakespeare, then download this version.
The Folger Library editions are my favorite. Each page has a facing page that explains obscure terms and helps as a handy reference to make reading the plays pleasurable and educational. These paperback editions of Shakespeare's works are a great value and fit in your pocket.
This unabridged, dramatized reading of Othello is a perfect solution for anyone who wants to read and understand Shakespeare in his original vernacular without reading some kind of "updated" version. The characters are distinct, the pace exciting, and the included music really sets the scene. You could just listen to the CD, but if you're not familiar with the story or you have trouble with Shakespeare, I would follow along with a text as well. And of course, listen to it more than once because you will pick up new ideas or images each time--I know I do!
I have purchased this product twice (once on tape and once on CD). I would love to have a whole Shakespeare set of these!
paperback rather than the smaller mass market paperback. The paper quality and illustrations are far superior in the larger version.

Great way to understand Shakespeare. So many times if I read the original text I don't get the proper meaning and would lose so much of what was going on. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Stephen Davidson
