Shakespeare's great tragedy explained in plain and simple prose! Just as "Macbeth" may be viewed as a play primarily about ambition, the play of "Othello" may be viewed as a tragedy primarily concerning jealousy. Shakespeare usually presents his audience not only an impelling dramatic experience, but also a study of a strong and intense emotion, desire, feeling, or passion that overwhelms the protagonist and conquers his rational abilities. Thus, once again, Shakespeare is presenting a play where the principal conflict could be termed as one of Reason vs. Emotion.
