We read this book in my 11th grade English class, and I adored with a passion. I had read only one other work by Shakespeare before Othello Romeo and Juliet and I wasnt extraordinarily impressed by it especially since our teacher was less than enthusiastic about it. Othello, however, was amazing. I read it over and over and quoted it for weeks it really gave me an appreciation for Shakespeare that I never got from Romeo and Juliet. Since reading Othello Ive read several other plays, and Ive loved all of them.

I loved Othello because the story full of jealously, hatred, manipulation, prejudice, and deceit was remarkable and the characters especially Iago, who remains the most intriguing literary character Ive ever encountered were well-developed fascinating. I really think this story is the one that should be used to introduce people to Shakespeare. I just hope their experience reading the play is as good as mine was.
