dc.description.abstract This paper tries to trace how Shakespeare's Othello has been textualized and argue how despite the play's obvious racial/cultural politics considered by the relatively new critical studies very few attempts have been made to unfold the problematic of receiving the text and its creator in the colonial/postcolonial Indian context. This paper will also try to throw light on the fact that how Othello has been compelled to endorse the supremacy of the liberal humanist culture by accepting the state distinction between civilized and barbaric, white and non-white, culture and sub-culture. And how the dominant ideology continues to claim its moral and intellectual superiority justifying that it has even placed the "demi-devil" at the heart of a supreme aesthetic manifestation-it has been 'pitying' and 'pitying' the Moor ever since he appeared on the English stage. en_US
