About The Book
The authoritative guide to teaching Shakespeare’s Othello, The Folger Guide to Teaching Othello is an invaluable resource for teachers, students, and Shakespeare fans alike.
In Othello, William Shakespeare creates powerful drama from a marriage between the exotic Moor Othello and the Venetian lady Desdemona that begins with elopement and mutual devotion and ends with jealous rage and death. Shakespeare builds many differences into his hero and heroine, including race, age, and cultural background. Yet the couple’s strong love would potentially easily overcome these differences were it not for Iago, who sets out to destroy Othello. Iago’s false insinuations about Desdemona’s infidelity draw Othello into his schemes, and Desdemona is subjected to Othello’s horrifying verbal and physical assaults.

-An explanation of the Folger methodology for teaching Shakespeare
-Scholarly essays from experts in the field,
-A five-week breakdown of digestible lesson plans
-Resource links for a deeper dive into the world of Shakespeare
This guide is an essential part of any teacher’s toolkit.
