    1446 words, 6 pages

    Perhaps the most interesting and exotic character in the tragic play "Othello," by William Shakespeare, is “Honest Iago.” Through some carefully thought-out words and actions, Iago is able to manipulate others to do things in a way that benefits him and moves him closer toward his goals. He is the main driving force in this play, pushing Othello and everyone else towards their tragic end. Iago is one of Shakespeare's most complex villains. At first glance Iago's character seems to be pure evil. However, such a villain would distract from the impact of the play and would be trite. Shakespea

    The tragic flaw is the most important part of the hero and the events that occur in the work is a reflection of that flaw.” – Aristotle The plot of William Shakespeare’s Othello is a tale of love, jealousy, and betrayal; however, the characters, themes, and attitudes of the works are different, with Shakespeare's play being a more involved study of human nature and psychology.

    When writing his plays Shakespeare develops his plot and characters in such a way that they may be interpreted in differently by listeners. Although his plays are written this way, he stays consistent in both developing the plot and characters within each individual scene. In my view I think that Act III Scene III is a critical scene in the play in the development of the plot and characters. In this scene Iago begins to plant the thoughts of an affair between Cassio and Desdemona in Othello’s mind. Though there was little to no evidence of Desdemona’s unfaithfulness, Othello was quick in beli

Shakespeare understood that a “love of power, which is another name for the love of mischief, was natural to man” (Bloom 432). Iago uses his love of mischief to his advantage i

    Othello and Merchant of Venice - Comparison Both ‘The Merchant of Venice’ and ‘Othello’ are set in Venice. In Shakespeare’s time, Venice was the most important trading centre in the world. Goods from the Far East were traded in Venice and with them came some new ideas and discoveries. The great explorer Marco Polo was Venetian and he had opened up trade routes with many new countries.

This theory has emerged from recent cognitive research and "documents the extent to which students possess different kinds of minds and therefore learn, remember, perform, and understand in different ways," according to Gardner (1991). According to this theory, "we are all able to know the world through language, logical-mathematical analysis, spatial representation, musical thinking, the use of the body to solve problems or to make things, an understanding of other individuals, and an understanding of ourselves.
