A Play about Problems in Racism

Over the past decade, there were many works about Shakespeare studying new issues: mainly homoerotic or racist motives in the works of Shakespeare.

During the period of occurrence of the slave trade in Elizabethan England, in 1603, Shakespeare wrote the tragedy Othello, in which the black African is endowed with military valor and nobility. In the tragedy, we can hear racist abuse around the name of black Othello. It was difficult for Venetians to accept the marriage of Othello and white aristocrat Desdemona. Black Venetian commander, naive and inexperienced in the realm of the senses becomes a victim to the treacherous and cunning libel Venetian, a sadistic Iago, - he kills his wife.

The understanding if Othello’s image has been always interrupted by openly racist theories and racial prejudices of the bourgeois majority of researchers who saw the source of the tragedy in the primitive character of the Moor, in his unbridled temperament, or even in a low mental level. They believed Othello was a retarded man in comparison with the Europeans, with whom he has to face. Even though many experts recognized the nobility and other high qualities of Othello, some of them still emphasize his intellectual primitiveness.

All these arguments are vulgar simplification of Shakespeare’s tragedy. The conflicts of the tragedy are generated not by the fact that Othello has lack of insight and lack of excessive fervor of mind. In the battles, with the stories of which he captivated the audience, he must have been smart more than once and showed composure and vision. Otherwise military lucks would have been unthinkable.

But we must remember that Othello is not only an intelligent and strong-willed person, he is a richly gifted and talented man. It is clear that the Moor had to have extraordinary abilities of commander to advance and become a general of the Republic. But Othello is not just a brilliant commander. He is a poet of his business, feeling the greatness of the war, which brings up the hero, turning the ambition in valor. All the sounds of battle and all the trappings of war have a full meaning for him. For Othello war is not a craft, but an art. Great battles are perceived by him as a kind of finished product he created.

Othello and Desdemona became closer due to their related life perception, bright optimism, and faith in the goodness and beauty of the person. Both of them put a great human sense above anything else, they overcame caste and racial prejudice, they both are not afraid to speak out against them to pave humanity and a happy way of life.
