Now, Roderigo thinks Cassio likes her too and vice versa. He feels pressured to protect against their love. In order for Roderigo to remove Othello and Cassio out of his way he listens to Iago’s evil scheme. Roderigo must get into a fight with Cassio because he is competition and, so he loses his reputation and his post as lieutenant. Roderigo has been forced by Iago to sell all of his belongings to pay Iago in false hope of getting Desdemona and to carry out evil.
Iago traps Roderigo in an inescapable relationship in which Roderigo is just a puppet controlled by Iago. It is clear that Iago has no emotions because he cheats Roderigo out of his fortune, neither does he regret it nor does he feel guilty. Furthermore, Iago uses Cassio’s trust in him to his advantage and pretends to be his friend while he tarnishes his reputation behind his back. When Iago speaks to the governor of Cyprus, he fabricates the idea that Cassio is an alcoholic and “He’ll watch the horologe a double set, If drink rock not his cradle.”(2.3.116-117). Although Iago pretends to be a good friend, he deliberately defames Cassio in front of Montano.
The Things We do for Love (A Discussion on the Messages in Falcon) Giovanni Boccaccio was a writer during the 1300’s. His literary works influenced another important writer Chaucer. “Boccaccio's literary production is characterized by an unusual versatility; his work, both in prose and verse, contains a variety of genres, many of which were pioneer ventures, destined to exercise a powerful influence on succeeding generations”(Bergin). Boccaccio works with human universal themes of love, loss, deception, fate, and honor. In his literary work Federigo’s Falcon, Boccaccio describes some of these human universal themes.
In the end, Iago’s deception of Othello and Roderigo help Iago try to achieve revenge, an improved reputation, and power. By manipulating, both Othello and Roderigo, and being fueled by jealousy, Iago’s plan changed the behavior of those around him without any questioning on whether Iago
Boccaccio exceeds the role of women, contrary to church teaching by depicting women as patient, more lustful, and more intelligent figures than men. Women in The Decameron are portrayed as being more long-suffering and more independent than men. Although it does not apply to all the female characters, Boccaccio demonstrates that women can endure difficulty easier than men do. Basically women do not have the enough power to overcome the whole problem that they tolerate hardship. The Bible, however, asserts on the equality of gender on the matter of patience.
Inigo repeatedly repeats to himself, “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya and you killed my father. Prepare to die.” The phrase summarizes Inigo’s thirst for vengeance with Count Rugen. As a child, Inigo respected his father as a person who had created the most wonderful sword for the six-fingered Count Rugen. Out of nowhere, the Count came with the sword to Domingo complaining about the swords condition and refused to pay the entire amount. Due to anger, Count Rugen killed Domingo and devastated Inigo’s life.

The play introduces us to two characters Roderigo and Iago, which sets up the first external conflict of which Roderigo owes Iago money , “That thou, Iago, who hast had my purse as if the strings were thine, shouldst know of this.” (Shakespeare, Act I) . Roderigo was referring to his payments to Iago in return Iago would get him his dream girl, Desdemona, which brings up another external conflict because Desdemona is married to the illustrious general Othello. Iago has some animosity towards Othello because Cassio got the job of lieutenant instead of himself. Iago instigates a fight between a drunken Cassio and Roderigo which results in Cassio being fired by Othello. Iago then has Emilia, his wife, get Othello’s mother’s handkerchief and plants in Cassio’s room, then warns Othello to watch out for Cassio and Desdemona.
The reader is at first able to determine that she is a bold female character after she sees Pangloss and Paquette practicing, in the words of Voltaire, “experimental philosophy” (Voltaire 2). Instead of waiting for Candide to make the first move, as men usually did in this time period, she was the one who corrupted Candide by taking him behind the screen to practice physics with her. In a critical analysis essay from Andrew Scherr the author states this action of “attributing aggressive sexual intent to the female” is to play into the fantasy that Voltaire had of women taking control and channeling their inner “nymphomaniac”, giving the reader their first taste of Cunegonde’s character trope of only being useful in terms of beauty and sex. It is an unexpected behavioral trait Cunegonde is put with, for she contributes to what, in that time period, is the male’s role in the relationship. “The Miss dropped her handkerchief...She innocently took hold of his hand” (2).
