Shakespeare's Invention of Othello: A Study in Early Modern English
Macmillan, 1988 - 284 頁
Did Shakespeare succeed in his characterisation of Othello? Or is the noble but degraded Moor psychologically implausible? This book enters an old controversy in a new way. Martin Elliott takes fully into account the fact that Shakespeare was writing in Early Modern English and explores word-meanings and syntax and finds an extended consistency.

But that I loue the gentle Desdemona
Who can controll his Fate?
