Othello - William Shakespeare
As an English major, I have read many Shakespeare plays and seen many performed in the theater, but strangely I had never read nor seen Othello, and now, having read it, I can't imagine why not. It seemed relatively short, and was a quick read with a heartbreaking plot, clear villain with clear motives, guileless heroine, etc. Seems like it would be an easy choice for a class assignment, and I would have liked to have written a paper on it and discussed it in a classroom setting. As it is, I'm glad I have read it now. Highly recommended.
