  • Othello Character Analysis Of Honest Lago

    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. Othello is considered a prime example of Aristotelian drama. It focuses upon a very small cast of characters, one of the smallest used in Shakespeare. In addition, it has few distractions fr

Today, many people are worried about this ‘violence’ in our youth’s behavior. Video games have become extremely popular over the last ten years, becoming one of children’s favorite activities. For example in a present study it was shown that adolescent boys play video games at an average of 13 hours a week whereas girls play for about 5 hours (Gentile, D. A. & Anderson, 2003).

    Traditionally it has been accepted that all that is needed to effect learning is for a professor to display his or her knowledge in a dynamic lecture. However, that is only part of what is needed. The other part is to have the students engage in activities that make them think about the course content and, wherever possible, to transfer it to new situations. When someone learns something, we expect that they will remember it for a good length of time, if not for their entire life. If the knowledge is acquired for only an hour or a week or

Although his plays are written this way, he stays consistent in both developing the plot and characters within each individual scene.
