Sample Text:
At the core of these shared characteristics are our vulnerabilities. William Shakespeare’s Othello provides fascinating insight into human nature through its examination of love and jealousy. These facets of life are explored through the play’s characters and their complex relationships with one another. English writer Samuel Johnson shares this sentiment writing that Shakespeare’s perceptive characterisation of Iago, Desdemona and Othello ‘are such proofs of Shakespeare’s skill in human nature.’ Vulnerability is at the heart of the human condition.

Othello Essay

This student studied:
HSC - Year 11 - English (Advanced)

Othello is a dramatic and engaging play, written by William Shakespeare. It is a great tragedy that explores the supremacy of manipulation and deceit when possessed by the wrong person and the tragic repercussions that can come of this. Lies and deceits are common in society, and many individuals mask their true intentions with a veneer. Iago is a character within Othello that possesses these traits. Iago states, “I am not what I am” (I, i, 66) suggesting that there may be a hidden or deeper meaning behind his initial appearance. Behind his façade as a trustworthy and exemplary friend, Iago is a prolific, zealous and manipulative villain, fabricating chaos and causing destruction within the play. He uses his strategic and creative acts of manipulation to undermine each character’s weaknesses. He exploits naïve Roderigo’s love for Desdemona, coaxes Cassio under the guise of friendship and toys with Othello’s mind by playing on his self-doubt and inexperience with women.
