About This Item

Translation by Boris Pasternak. Cover by N. Il'in.

Moskva, GIKhL, 1945.

Limited to 25 000 copies.

Second edition of Otello in Pasternak's translation.

First edition was glassprinting and unofficial, limited to 300 copies. It's practically unobtainable.

This translation was intended for production in the Small Theatre [Malyi Theatre] in Moscow, 'which put spurs to me and hurried up'. Pasternak finished the translation in July 1944. Olga Freudenberg, philologist and Pasternak's cousin, wrote that he translated Othello 'not only in Russian language, but on the meaning of language'. Nevertheless Pasternak translated Othello 'against his will': 'It seems to me former member of family... and I'm terrible simplify it'. In a scene where Othello stifles Desdemona, Pasternak added the remark 'poniard her'.

Zakharenko, 1995. # 115.

OCLC locates two copies in UK at University of Cambridge and University of Birmingham.
