This is the first scholarly edition of Othello to give full attention to the work's bold treatment of racial themes. Shakespeare's decision to place a sympathetic black hero at the centre of his tragedy was unique in its time; but, as the lively introduction shows, the play's relationship to the history of racial thinking remains controversial. Designed to meet the needs of theatre professionals, as well as general readers, the edition includes an extensive performancehistory, a commentary illuminating the complexities of Shakespeare's language, and an indispensable appendix on the music in the play.

In the board game 'Othello', players must turn double-sided counters to their advantage. This doubleness is shared by Shakespeare's play of 1604, marked from its outset by a dual and paradoxical title 'Othello, or the Moor of Venice'. This study teases out instances of doubleness, duplication and paradox to discuss the play's language and its themes. Chapters cover the issues of substitution, of racial polarity and its confusions, of the contested place of the domestic in the play, and the mixed generic signals this comedy-turned-tragedy gives out to its audiences. Throughout the emphasis is on the close readings of the play on the page and on stage, informed by the recent scholarship that has made Othello so pressing a play for the vexed cultural politics of the twenty-first century.

The volume analyses the concept of the “body” in the Renaissance period and its articulations and interpretations both in the legal field and the theatre. The body emerges as a site of regulation, shaped by social and political ideologies and specific networks of power, as well as a site of resistance to the codification of individual identity and the medium for its re-assertion in strict connection to the concept of the juridical persona.

Shakespeare in America is a lively account of America's embracing of Shakespeare's works in print and in performance from colonial times to the present. It describes American scholarly attention to Shakespeare (criticism, editions of the plays, secondary school and collegiate curricula) and light-hearted attention (burlesques, musical comedies, kitsch). The book highlights major contributors, including actors, editors, writers, pedagogues, and impresariosto Shakespeare's popularity in America, as well as organizations for the study or performance of Shakespeare, such as summer festivals, professional associations, research libraries, and Shakespeare clubs.Twenty illustrations enhance this survey of the multiple ways that American culture has embraced the English dramatist and poet.
