Analogy of Shakespeare’s Othello with a Special Reference to Wells (1952), Parker (1995) and Sax (2001)
Keywords:Actors and filmmakers, Shakespeare's plays
Actors and filmmakers alike love adapting Shakespeare's plays because of their universal themes and innate appeal. This makes it easy for directors to personalize and implement their own interpretations in the theatre or onscreen (Kidnie, 2008). This research will examine three Othello cinematic adaptations, including Orson Welles' 1952 film, Oliver Parker's 1995 film, and Geoffrey Sax's 2001 BBC adaptation.
