Despite the society has a shared opinion of what’s morally correct and incorrect, one’s morality has always been more internal to an individual due to the social, historical and personal circumstances they are in, therefore it is difficult for us to evaluate one’s morality. The connection between literacy and morality is one of the themes that appears in the book The Reader, written by Bernard Schlink. In the book, the character Hanna Schmitz becomes literate and makes both right and wrong decisions when she is literate and illiterate. Literacy has an effect on one’s morality because being literate allows one to have a better comprehension on a matter, which allows one to be more rational.

Throughout the course of history, Hispanic males tend to be stereotyped for certain reasons, similar to Othello in his society. In Shakespeare’s tragedy Othello, the title character is a 16th century Moorish general of the Venetian army who, because of the cultural and historical background of the play’s setting, the playwright, and the original intended audience, is portrayed as both well-respected for his military prowess and disparaged for his race. Similarly, because of the history in America of undocumented immigrants tending to work blue-collared jobs, hispanic males in today’s society are praised for being hard working men and yet are often seen as misogynist for having stay at home wives. In Venice, Othello has proven to high powered individuals that he has a stronger contribution to the results of wars. Othello is aware that any threat he has would be overlooked because he is a high priority to the Duke of Venice.
