  • As The Twentieth Century Comes To A Close, The World Can Now Look Back On A Century Filled With War, Technology, Revolution, - 1,601 words
    As the twentieth century comes to a close, the world can now look back on a century filled with war, technology, revolution, and growth. When looking back upon the most powerful leaders that shaped past century, it cant be assumed that all of them had good intentions in mind. In fact, it is these leaders, the ones who set forth goals of destruction and massacre, that have affected the past hundred years the most drastically. The two men who fully represented this figure of dictatorship and extreme fascism are without a question Adolf Hitler of Germany and Benito Mussolini of Italy. These men strove for unrealistic and inhumane ideals, and both convinced a nation to follow them. Hitler and Mu ...

  • Comparing Othello And Canterbury Tales - 1,167 words
    Comparing Othello And Canterbury Tales A Case Study In Human Nature The use of manipulation and misleading for personal gain has proved to be successful for many people throughout history. Famous poet, Geoffrey Chaucer, and famous play writer, William Shakespeare, illustrate characters who possess these manipulating qualities in their personalities. Geoffrey Chaucer's Pardoner, from The Canterbury Tales, and William Shakespeare's Iago, from Othello, are good examples deceiving characters. These literary figures manipulating techniques are very effective on the other characters in Chaucer's and Shakespeare's works. Iago's main motivation for his manipulation is his hatred of the main characte ...

  • Honest Iago - 1,063 words
    Honest Iago Honest Iago The poet Coleridge appropriately described the character of Iago as being one of motiveless malignity. Throughout the play Iagos motives are secondary to, and seem only to serve as justification for, his actions. Iago is driven by his nature of character. To discuss Coleridges assessment we must look at Iagos characterfrom Iagos point of view and that of the other charactershis motives, methods, and pawns. Through some carefully thought-out words and actions, Iago is able to manipulate others to do things in a way that benefits him; all the while he is pushing Othello, Desdemona, Roderigo, Emilia, and Cassio to their tragic end. According to Websters New International ...

  • Othello - 1,337 words
    Othello "Tush, never tell me! I take it much unkindly/ that thou, Iago, who hast had my purse/ as if the strings were thine, shouldst know of this./" (I. i. 1-3) From the beginning of Othello, Iago is portrayed as an antagonist, a villain who acts out of only his own interest. The acts that Iago engages in throughout Shakespeare's Othello are erroneous acts. Iago is not insane and he can comprehend the difference between right and wrong. Shakespeare is known for his ability to focus on human flaws and teach us lessons from their misfortune. Iago's destiny with evil is due to his own flaws, jealousy, selfishness, and deceit. Because of these insecurities, Iago will stop at nothing to get even ...

  • Othello - 1,249 words
    Othello Q-Why is a bride's dress always white? A-To match the appliances! Even though society has made great strides in trying to equalize women and men, there was a time when women were viewed as nothing more than a man's property. Shakespeare in his play Othello writes his male characters to view women in much the same demeaning way. In this play one can see two examples of women and the view their husbands place upon them. Both Desdamona and Emila are victims of the chauvenism of their husbands. Marriage is the vow between two people, to be there for one another, to share in pain and suffering, to share in the good times and the bad times, and to share equally in life's experiences. If th ...

    Othello I am not what I am. An essay on Othello, question No 4. I will discuss this quote in relation to Lacan's ideas about language as the symbolic order. My aim is to show how Othello finds his identity threatened by Desdemona's reaction to his tales. In order to explain Lacan's ideas very briefly I will quote from Pam Morris: Literature and Feminism, (Blackwell, 1993) where she discusses the resolution of the Oedipal crisis. For Freud the outcome of the child's fear of castration is its submission to the reality principle and hence its entry into the social order. For Lacan this must coincide with the child's entry into the language system.....Language is thus the Law of the father; a li ...

    ... and Othello is "a treason of the blood" (I..i.160) and he feels that society's acceptance of Othello will reduce Venetian statesman to "bond slaves and pagans" (I.ii.99). He also believes that Desdemona could not love "the sooty bosom of such a thing" (I.ii.70). One who she feared "To fall in love with what she feared to look on"(I.iii.98). The idea of race developed as a way to explain social divisions in a society that thought it believed in equality. And what constitutes race has changed quite dramatically since then. Othello is neither a racist text or a non-racist text but is merely showing the representation of race in a sixteenth-century society. I suppose one could argue that Ia ...

  • Othello - 1,421 words
    Othello Othello, written by William Shakespeare is the story of Othello, the protagonist and tragic hero of the play. A Moor commanding the armies of Venice, he is a celebrated general and heroic figure whose "free and open nature" will enable Iago to twist his love for his wife Desdemona into a powerful jealousy. Iago is Othellos ensign, and Shakespeare's greatest villain. His public face of bravery and honesty conceals a Satanic delight in manipulation and destruction. Passed over for a promotion by his commander, he vows to destroy the Moor. If Iago is an artist of evil, then this scene is the finest canvas he paints. This is the crucial moment in the play, the scene where he, , deceives ...

It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds on."(3,3,195) Iago, being a man of skills and tricks, bewares Othello of the dangers of jealousy... the same jealousy being instilled in Othello by Iago. He relentlessly plays off Othello's gullibility throughout the play. Othello's gullibility led him to believe lies and insinuations by Iago. "What Iago injects into Othello's mind, the poison which he changes him, is either false deductions, dubious generalizations, or flat lies."(Gardner, 142) Othello was succumbed by all of the insinuati ...

  • Othello And Desdemona - 1,367 words
    Othello And Desdemona In Shakespeares play Othello, Iago is the antagonist. That is, he is the villain in the play Othello. He is the person who causes an action to occur which affects the other characters in the play. This action may not necessarily be a good thing. Iago is the catalyst for Othellos change. He is the reason behind Othellos changing views of his wife Desdemona, which results in the deaths of many of the characters in this tragedy. In order to understand the role Iago plays in destroying Othello, it is important to understand how Iago uses other characters in Othello to set his devious plot into motion. Iago successfully manipulates the characters involved to further his evil ...

Two main characters Iago, of Othello, and Hamlet, of Hamlet, can be compared and contrasted through characterization. Characterization is the represent ion of characteristics or motives of a character. Both characters have different character traits which make them truly different from one another, but their ending resolutions are remarkably the same.

Iago then comes up with numerous ideas and plots to steal the position he f ...

    Othello And Iago In act one of Othello, Shakespeares character, Iago, shows how deceitful and disloyal people can be. Iagos disloyalty towards Othello and Cassio is portrayed through the lies he tells to Barbantio, Othello, and Cassio. Othello wants revenge on Othello because he thinks that Othello slept with his wife, Emilia, and because he gave Cassio the promotion Iago thought he deserved. Therefor he also wants to get back at Cassio. In the first scene Iago and Roderigo wake up Barbantio by yelling at him from outside his house. When he comes outside they tell him that Othello has stolen his daughter, Desdemona, although Desdemona willingly married Othello. His disloyalty is evident by h ...

  • Othello And Iago - 840 words
    Othello And Iago The Different Sides of Iagos Character In Shakespeare's "Othello," Iago carefully and masterfully entraps Othello into believing that his wife, Desdemona, is having an affair with Cassio. He does this through a series of suggestions and hesitations that entice and implant images into Othello's head that lead him to his own end. More importantly, Iago gives Othello the motive to murder his own innocent wife Desdemona, satisfying Iago's huge appetite for revenge. The motive for Iago's devious plan is initially made clear in the first of three major soliloquies, in which he proclaims Othello has had an affair with his wife, Emilia: "And it is thought abroad that t'wixt my sheet ...

  • Othello And Much Ado About Nothing - 689 words
    Othello And Much Ado About Nothing The two villains in "Much Ado About Nothing" and "Othello" share much in common, despite their numerous differences. It is evident that Shakespeare framed the second piece of literature to be similar to the first. Although shorter, the plot of "Othello" is definitely more complex. The villains play a major part in the novels, and are very much alike in their line of thinking. The comedy, "Much Ado About Nothing" depicts the story of a group of high-ranking soldiers who travel through a town called Messina. They had been to the town before, and this time Claudio confesses his love for the governors daughter, Hero. Because Leonato is so fond of Claudio, the w ...

  • Othello And Racism - 955 words
    Othello And Racism Although there are lots of things to suggest this is a racist play I don't think that racism actually dominates the play, even though it has a racist theme. There is a romantic union between black and white which gets destroyed because most people think the relationship is wrong. At the time the play was written, 1604, even the Queen of England was racist so there must have been a strong hatred of blacks around that time. Most racist comments in the play are said by people that are angry or upset. For example, when Emilia found out that Othello had killed Desdemona she was extremely mad and she called Othello a "Blacker devil", this was the only time in the play that she h ...
