Summary

Lois Potter tracesOthello's acting tradition as it affected the playing of Othello, Desdemona, characters originally played by a white actor and a boy, respectively, and Iago. She examines the stage and screen versions of the play, including a full study of Paul Robeson's 1943 avatar of the character, that reflect or challenge current views about race and gender.

Author Biography

Lois Potter is Ned B. Allen Professor of English at the University of Delaware.
