Othello, a tragedy, written about 1603, is about perceived adultery and murder.  Othello is a Moor from northern Africa.  The play is set in Venice where he is a general in the Venetian army.  Shakespeare based the play on an Italian short story published in 1565. 




The play begins with Iago (Othello’s ensign - a low ranking officer) and Roderigo (a Venetian gentleman) going to visit Brabantio (a Venetian senator).  Desdemona, his daughter, has eloped with Othello.  Roderigo is in love with Desdemona.  Iago is fuming about losing a promotion that Othello granted to Cassio.
