Sample Text:
Othello is a tragedy that focuses on the destruction of Othello and the other major characters as a result of this idea. In Othello, jealousy is mainly portrayed through two main characters: Iago and Othello; whilst pride is portrayed through: Iago, Cassio and Othello. Pride and jealousy are what corrupts their lives as it compels Iago to turn against his lord and his best friend. Pride and jealousy are corrupting and destructive as they prompt Iago to plot against Othello and Cassio in the attempt to gain more pride, more status.

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.
