  • Roderigo's Compassion Towards Desdemona Causes Iago
    1,857 words
    In any story with a recurring dark theme there always must be an outsider from humanity who somehow stands out from the seemingly equal community. In the case of Shakespeare's Othello the outsider from humanity would be Iago for he truly stands out from the rest of society. Although Othello may be physically put out of the community, it seems that on an emotional and egotistical level Iago puts himself out of society further then Othello's blackness does. He is not merely manipulative, as other ...

The role he plays is rather unique and complex, far from what one might expe...
  • Iago Cries To Brabantio
    281 words
    Different people have different opinions of the motives of Iago, in the play "Othello", by one William Shakespeare. Colerige famously said that Iago acted with a "motiveless malignity", or a pure hate of Othello and everything that he did. Others have disagreed with the author of perhaps the most famous critical analysis of Othello. They have suggested that he acted out of pure sexual jealousy, out of a envy of Othello's rank and class, or out of pure racism. Perhaps the most arguable case again...

  • Iago's Complete Disrespect Of Desdemona And Emilia
    2,346 words
    Iago is perhaps one of the most intriguing and heinous villains in Shakespeare. Iago is on stage from the very beginning of the play Othello and he dominates and dictates the action from then onwards. Immediately, we observe how the plot of the play largely relies on the villain himself. In Act One Scene One, Iago shapes all of the events that are to come by duping the foolish Roderigo into calling upon Brabantio, a Venetian Senator, to inform him of his daughter Desdemona's misdoings: "Call up ...
