Art of Master Villains: Duel between Iago and Richard III Dr. Lecter, The Joker, Norman Bates—these are some of the greatest villains on the movie screen. Nonetheless, few of them can compare to the top villains created by Shakespeare. Among them, Iago in the tragedy Othello and Richard III in Richard III are the finest and most polished. Although Othello is named after the “Moor of Venice”, Bloom comments that “it is Iago’s play” because he predominates the stage and remains in one’s mind long after one has finished reading or watching the play (433).

Shakespeare depicts this power predominantly through Prospero who seems to have the greatest extent of power in the play. The various ways Shakespeare dramatizes and explores power, allows us to obtain a richer impression of the theme of power in The Tempest.
