Shakespeare: Othello

by Cerebellum
SKU: 1050295

This DVD examines three plays that reveal Shakespeare at his height as a writer of tragedies. This trio of tragedies contains Shakespeare's variations on the tragic figure: A man destroyed by jealousy (Othello), a man destroyed by ambition (Macbeth), and a man destroyed by hubris and ultimately redeemed by love (King Lear). The Standard Deviants take the mystery out of these difficult plays, making them easier to understand and appreciate.Run Time: 1:56 Grade Level: 7+Co-written by Robert J.
