The Literary Award has been granted by the City Council in Stalowa Wola to honor the multicultural aspects of this publication. In his book, Dr. Sangare interprets the tale of Othello as the story of a contemporary hero who devotes his life to civil service. In this respect it is essentially a story of dashed hopes and lost identity, although the traditionally emphasized theme of jealousy is given its full due as well. Professor Sangare also analyzes many productions and interpretations of Othello, including those of Orson Welles, Anthony Hopkins, Laurence Olivier, and Laurence Fishburne.
