I'm not talking about the challenging game of strategy; nope, I'm talking Shakespeare's Othello. I read Romeo and Juliet in high school and liked that well enough, but I never read much (or any) Shakespeare on my own.  Othello's vocabulary is difficult, but the story is OK so far - I'm close to the end of the first act.  The beginning of the play seems a little vulgar.  I don't really think of people being like that in those days, which is obviously silly; there's always been vulgar people.  A quick read of pretty much any book in the Bible proves that!  I'm a little concerned that Othello is standard reading for our state's high school kids.  I'm hoping that they had an edited version :)
