Othello By William Shakespeare Summary

Othello by William Shakespeare takes place in 16th-century Venice and also in Cyprus. Othello is a noble black warrior in the Venetian army. He secretly marries a beautiful white woman, Desdemona, daughter of a prominent senator named Brabantio. When he finally finds out and is completely furious, he decides to repudiate Desdemona.

Iago has secret jealousy and resentment towards Othello because a soldier named Lieutenant Cassio was placed in front of him and also suspects that Othello has been cheating on his wife. Pending revenge, Iago plans a tortuous return to raise suspicions in Othello’s mind that Desdemona has been having an affair with Cassio. One night a street fight begins with Cassio. Everyone gets together and Othello finds him drunk on time and then is fired from his post.
