Othello: a contextual history represents a genuinely new way of doing Shakespeare studies; a synthesis of performance and context histories that works only because it is so intelligently and compellingly historicised. As dramaturg for the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's 1996 production of Othello, I had the opportunity to peruse and use the contents of a full library shelf devoted to Shakespeare's tragedy.

Vaughan discusses non-canonical plays, grouping of scenes, and characters that highlight the most important conventions - appearance, linguistic tropes, speech patterns, plot situations, the use of asides and soliloquies, and other dramatic techniques - that shaped the ways black characters were 'read' by white English audiences.

This anthology offers an exciting range of new critical responses to Shakespeare's most controversial tragedy. In her introduction, Virginia Mason Vaughan surveys the entire anthology, relating each new perspective to the traditional viewpoints of earlier twentieth-century critics. For the first half of the twentieth century, critics catalogued and analyzed Shakespeare's poetic language while they debated Othello's stature as a tragic hero and Iago's motivation as a villain. By contrast, the essays included in this volume reveal the play's dissonance's and ambiguities. They employ a variety of contemporary discourses - deconstruction, feminism, performance theory, speech act theory, and cultural poetics - to reexamine Othello. Throughout, they treat Shakespeare's tragedy as theatrical text, foregrounding its dramatic properties and exploiting current theories about performance to show how the play actually works.
