Abstract

Sam Gold’s production of Othello explores the interrelated themes of war and the cultural construction of identity by foregrounding the play’s encounters between Christianity and Islam. Instead of focusing solely on Othello’s race, Gold’s political and ethical reevaluation of Shakespeare’s Othello examines the many facets of blackness, from a color assigned to people to the epistemological state of being in the dark.
