Pride, greed, and lust drove Iago to poisoning Desdemona 's father and eventually ruining the marriage between Desdemona and Othello. In his play, he approach the problems the world faces in a comedic manner. People let greed and lust persuade them to do crazy things. Othello and Iago are foil characters in Othello. Iago let his vengeful ways and deceitful motives alter his decisions while Othello appears in the opening acts as the very personification of self control”(Harbage).
In the play Othello by William Shakespeare, we encounter a man named Lago who feels that he has been wronged in several ways and seeks his revenge on two men, Cassio and Othello. Lago proves to be a very jealous man, though he has the mental capacity to set aside his emotions and act according to reason and careful planning. Lago is a man who loves to see his success in the manipulative work that he does, with no care for the life of another lost due to his (Lago’s) actions. This very jealous man Lago, has the mental capacity to restrain himself from rash action and plan revenge carefully enough that others are entirely unaware of Lago’s manipulation of them. In Act 2 Scene 1, Lago expresses great jealousy for Cassio, along with hatred for both Cassio and Othello while under the impression that they both have seduced his wife.
Othello is a tragic hero because of his tragic mistake. There are many unwanted behaviors in Othello, like his jealousy and lack of caution. Nevertheless, the center of these troubles and his major tragic mistake is his lack of confidence because he is the only black character and an outsider in Venice. His weakness makes him an effortless objective for Iago to use his mind; he starts to accept as true that he is poor for Desdemona: “She’s gone, I am abused, and my relief must be to loathe her. Oh, curse of marriage that we can call these delicate creatures ours and not their appetites!” (3.3.283-286).
After that statement she stated this, “Now I wouldn’t be bored / Now I would know too much / Now I would know,” showing that at the end she regretted her wish to no longer be bored. After the poem showing us how bored she was, the author at the end showed a conflict of no longer being bored. Even though she stated, “I could hardly wait to get / the hell out of there to / anywhere else,” the author shows these signs of regret at the end of the poem once she is no longer getting bored. This development sound odd, but it also give a few possiblities in why the author is now thinking this way. What I believe the case for this is that from the quote, “Why do I remember it as sunnier / all the time then, although it more often / rained, and more birdsong,” shows that even though something may have happened to the author that caused her to escape her boredom that make her wish that it never happened to begin with.
This is the major part of the play and it includes the second, third and fourth acts and often also the last part of the first act and the beginning of the fifth act. The third and last part of the play deals with the resolution of the conflict in a catastrophe. The purpose of the exposition is to present the main persons of the play and "their positions in life, their circumstances, their relations to one another." This is supposed to awaken the curiosity of the audience and make them wonder what is will happen to the persons that have been presented. The exposition does not show the conflict as such but is shows the conditions that will lead to conflict.
Iago’s powerfully disruptive insinuations torment Othello to fall precipitously into his intricate trap, believing in the prospect of Cassio and Desdemona’s fictitious affair. Through the use of linguistic techniques such as elliptical speech, subservient vocative choices and a hesitant tone, Iago is able to construct artful innuendoes to deceive and manipulate Othello. Supplementary to linguistic techniques, dramatic techniques such as dramatic irony reinforces Iago’s role as a two-faced villain, who is making a pretence of being Othello’s loyal ensign. Eventually, Iago’s villainy nature sows a seed of doubt in Othello that germinates into the murder of Desdemona. Through the characterisation of Iago as a notorious villain, Shakespeare is able to hold Iago’s actions accountable for the play’s tragic downfall, establishing a sense of powerlessness amongst the
When Othello told Lago that he could not have the commander and chief position he wanted, He was going to get revenge on Othello. While Lago was going crazy and mad, He decided to get many character to spread rumors and set objects where they are not suppose to be. The action between all the characters is a major plan set by Lago. The plan was ment to break up or make Othello and Desdemona leave each other so Rodrigo would have the love of his life, Desdemona.

The Jacobean play Othello, written by William Shakespeare effectively explores the power of manipulation. The audience is exposed to Iago’s revenge-fuelled tactics when encouraged to look beyond superficial appearance to underlying reality. Iago, Othello’s “ancient” manipulates him due to his outsider insecurities in the Venetian society. Iago’s dissembling and resulting jealousy ultimately leads Othello, to “farewell the tranquil mind.” Othello’s outsider status and ethnic difference is an important factor in Iago’s manipulation as it encourages Othello’s insecurities and is thus a flaw which Iago uses in his manipulation. The audience is confronted with Iago’s manipulation at the beginning of the play when Roderigo and Iago try to define and mock Othello using racial terms such as “Moor”, “barbary horse” and “thick lips”.
The absurdist themes of nothingness, oblivion, disability, despair, and uncertainty are central to the understanding of the play. Waiting for Godot is a play which does not do what it is supposed to do; that is, it does not tell us a story in an ordered and a proper manner. The play begins with one of the characters, Estragon, announcing “Nothing to be done”, and the audience is attacked in some consciousness with a solid denial of dramatic action in the history of theatre. The dialogue talks about the context of the speaker which is that he is unable to get rid of his boot despite continuous struggles, but it also sets in motion the general philosophical motif of the play –
Othello is ultimately placed between an angel and a devil who both demand his loyalty (“Othello.” William Shakespeare , Shakespeare A-Z 471). Desdemona gives unconditional love, is pure and loyal while Iago is a jealous vice who is incapable of love or loyalty (“Othello” Shakespeare for
