This paper suggests that, in William Shakespeare's "Othello", racial discrimination could have been the unconscious motivation in the plotting against Othello. The play was published around the time when people of color were just making their way into the British scene. The author points out that Othello is the only person or character of color in the cast. The paper also describes other key characters, Desdemona, Iago and Roderigo, and their interactions with Othello, which forms the core of the drama. The author emphasizes that Shakespeare's characters are very real and so true to human nature that, centuries later, they seem to represent mankind today.
