Conversationally, but nonetheless intensively, scholars Alan Dilnot and Sue Tweg (of Australia’s Monash University) discuss Shakespeare’s tragedy. Topics under scrutiny include Othello’s outsider status and his self-awareness, issues of race in casting, Desdemona as commodity, Iago as plot device, varying aspects of Desdemona’s personality, and interpreting the play in a modern context. Young actors perform scenes or soliloquies (complete with line citations) illustrative of specific points. Grades 9–12. Color. 29 minutes. VEA (Video Education America). ©2000.
