Anderson asserts, “What Phillips couldn’t see was that Greg’s behavior masked a rapidly deteriorating home life, where he was now the sole focus of his mother’s rage. Almost daily, Greg told me, his mother would rip into him about something- his grades, his appearance, his choice of friends- ferocious tirades that often culminated in her telling him, “I know you’re going to leave me just like your sisters did.” Once her anger passed, Bonnie would usually apologize to her son, but after a time, Greg didn’t even hear it anymore” (Anderson 42).

While Othello ultimately kills his wife over his fears of not being enough for his wife, one cannot deny that both Othello and the speaker of “Doubt” let their fears rule their lives. In Othello, the towns people, even his wife’s father, are constantly telling him that he is not good enough for his wife, Desdemona.
