In the board game 'Othello', players must turn double-sided counters to their advantage. This doubleness is shared by Shakespeare's play of 1604, marked from its outset by a dual and paradoxical title Othello, or the Moor of Venice. This study cites instances of doubleness, duplication and paradox to discuss the play's language and its themes.
