YouTube is an expanding archive, and includes material that is of value and interest to students of Shakespeare: for more on this see Lauren Shohet’s article “YouTube, Use and the Idea of the Archive” in Shakespeare Quarterly 38 (2010). This video, featuring actor Paul Robeson, is a particularly important example of how YouTube can be used as a learning resource for Shakespeare’s Othello. Robeson first played the part of Othello on the stage of London’s Savoy Theatre in 1931 and in this interview he talks about the personal significance of the role.
