Abstract

Othello is one of Shakespeare’s most forensic works; in particular, the trial scene of act 1 becomes the locus for the negotiation of the characters’ identity in the context of Venetian society. Othello and Desdemona attempt at overcoming the gender and ethnic tenets of their time through a self-fashioning of their own identities which then they try to submit for legal recognition.
