Publisher's Summary

Folger Shakespeare Library, The World’s Leading Center for Shakespeare Studies

The Folger Shakespeare Library, home to the world’s largest Shakespeare collection, brings Othello to life with this new full-length, full-cast dramatic recording of its definitive Folger Edition.

In Othello, Shakespeare creates powerful drama from a marriage between the exotic Moor Othello and the Venetian lady Desdemona. Shakespeare builds many differences into his hero and heroine, including race, age, and cultural background. Yet most audiences believe the couple’s strong love would overcome these differences were it not for Iago, who sets out to destroy Othello.

This new full-cast recording - based on the most respected edition of Shakespeare's classic - expertly produced by the Folger Theatre, is perfect for students, teachers, and the everyday listener.

Good cast

The cast was great. But some of the back audio was annoying at times and sometimes too loud. But overall it was a good version. I'm happy with my purchase.

Great voice actors

True be told, I only bought this book for my English class... but the voice actors were fantastic. They were easy to listen to and understand, even with the Shakespearian language.

WOW!

Loved It! It was truly a live-like narration. It felt as if I was at a live play!
