Othello's Tragedy

Title

Othello's Tragedy

Subject

Black Britons on the Stage

Description

This is an image of one of the most important scenes in Othello, the scene where Othello kills his wife. This scene is important because it shows people that the “perfect” moor’s one flaw getting the best of him. Besides Othello’s flaw getting the best of him, the scene shows a black man killing a white woman. If a Black Briton was to kill a white woman during Shakespeare's time, the town would probably want their head. Much like in Othello how a mob was after him after killing his innocent wife, there would be a angry mob to chasing the Black Briton.
