- This is an ingenius move on as his part, as Cassio must pursue Desdemona?s help behind Othello?s back. Roderigo is manipulated by Iago?s telling him to pursue Desdemona, even though Desdemona is already married.
- Othello: and How others view himOthello’s character during the play is first shown as a hero of war and a man of great pride and courage. The other main characters in the play all form their own opinions of him and as the play continues, his character begins to deteriorate and become less noble.
- (Hubele). Using the Aristotle criteria, we can easily classify Othello, the Moor, as a tragic hero. At the time, it was common practice for the Italian city-states to have a foreigner, with proven military capabilities, serving as the head of their Army.
- Thus the ultimate evaluation of Othello must be that, although he leads well and means well, he lacks good judgement and common sense. This becomes most plainly obvious in his final two speeches, where even though the play ends properly, and in a dignified way, Othello never fully realizes or takes responsibility for what has happened.
- In Shakespeare’s Othello, the character Iago, Othello’s lieutenant, is the cause of all the tragedy which comes to pass as the play progresses. Iago is the antagonist of the play, but rather than being the direct opponent to the tragic hero, Iago is a manipulator, opposing Othello not directly but through other characters whom he tricks into acting for him.
- Othello isn t a play about racism as much as it is a play about jealosy, conflicting values, and the power of suggestion. Some racism is displayed within the play, but that is simply a reflection of how most minorities were treated in the time period when the population in Europe was predominantly of white skin color.
- Othello by William Shakespeare remains an amazing, well-read and often-performed drama, approximately 400 years after it was first put to paper because every person that reads it can relate to a part or many parts of the play. Both the major and minor themes in Othello are emotions that are inherent to human nature.
- Each individual has a different opinion on what love is, but it is amazing how these opinions differ between Desdemona and Emilia in William Shakespeare s, Othello. Othello is a play written about love, betrayal and relationships, and each character has a strong opinion on how a relationship should be.
- Potent in its literal sense means powerful. This essay therefore is based on a statement saying that the play is a study into the power of evil. Evil is conveyed in many different ways in Othello, but they all seem to radiate from Iago. Therefore it would only be appropriate if I did a study into the evil of Iago, and how it affects everything and everybody in the play.
- In the play Othello, the character of Othello has certain traits, which make him seem naive and unsophisticated, compared to many other people. This is why Iago, is able to manipulate him so easily. Iago told Roderigo, “O,sir, content you. I follow him to serve my turn upon him “(I, i lines 38-9).
- In William Shakespeare’s Othello there is a wide array of themes. One of the themes, which is found true to nearly every character, is of the act of control throughout the play. Another theme portrayed through Iago, is the recurring use of words such as “monkey”, “lion”, etc.
- As villain in Shakespeare?s play Othello, Iago has two main actions. They are to plot and to deceive. Iago hates Othello for two reasons. He believes that Othello made love to his wife, and Iago is mad that Cassio was chosen to be Lieutenant instead of himself.
- Unequivocally, Iago is an important Character in the tragedy of Othello. By the end of the play, Iago has been directly responsible for the deaths of Roderigo, Emilia, Othello and Desdemona. Iago’s shows how he is masterful puppeteer by driven by his desire for revenge against Othello and the other characters in the play.
- He is very proud and in control of every move throughout the play. The control is not only of power but of the sense of his being who he is, a great warrior. In Act I, Othello has a scuffle with Brabantio, who has come to kill him, but before anything could happen Othello said, “Hold your hands, both of you of my inclining and the rest.
- Person vs. himself is also found when Othello has a problem with whether or not he should believe that Desdemona is cheating on him. . one lesson , in which, readers can learn from the play is that “jealousy causes corruption in many ways such as dishonesty which was portrayed by Iago”.
- Likewise, Othello is the tragic hero of the play but his character is also weak. Jealousy is Othello?s major downfall.
- One of the most interesting and exotic characters in the tragic play ” Othello”, by William Shakespeare, is “honest” Iago. At first Iago seems to be motiveless. However, the motivation behind his actions lie more in Iago’s quest for personal gain, as opposed to just being evil for evil’s sake.
- Othello’s grief and his deep love for Desdemona led to a series of actions and dialogue located at the climax of the story. The chosen passage came near the end of this work–just after Othello smothered Desdemona with her pillow. Shakespeare, simply and probably tritely put, was a genius.
- The theme of racism is strongly depicted in William Shakespeare s Othello. It depicts the attitude of European society towards those that were different in colour, race and language. In Europe, people of white complexion were the majority and all other races were considered to be less important and inferior.
