O! beware, my lord, of jealousy;
It is the green-ey'd monster which doth mock
The meat it feeds on.

Othello features Shakespeare's finest villain Iago. I'd be interested in a student's interpretation of his mental state, insecurities, narcissistic and entitled tendencies, etc. Does Othello truly love Desdemona? If so, how does his love for her change on a dime on nothing more than a second-rate, B-class soldier's say-so?!

It felt like a 17th century (?) soap opera, full of deception, lies, misunderstandings and death. I felt like it was better than Romeo and Juliet, though it still took some motivation to read
