On the Hidden Meaning of the Tragedy "Othello" by William Shakespeare

Authors: Lev I. Verkhovsky

We analyzed the play basing on the assumption that it was written by Roger Manners, 5th Earl of Rutland, and that he reflected in it his personal problems and the circle of people close to him. As it is known, Earl of Rutland -- one of the main candidates for the authorship of Shakespeare's creations. As a result, we found out what real persons were the prototypes of the main characters, what was the secret meaning of the play. Other our articles on the Shakespearean theme are presented in the book `Shakespeare: Faces and Masks` (2018, in Russian) – «Шекспир: лица и маски» (М.: Спутник+, 2018, сейчас имеется в продаже) and in our personal site
