Study Guide: Othello


The Folger Study Guide to Othello includes a plot summary, character connection chart, background information, activities, and additional resources. Students and teachers may use it to prepare for a Folger Theatre performance or in their own classroom.  While seeing live performances is a wonderful way to study Shakespeare, much of the material can be used even if you won't be seeing Othello onstage.
