Othello’s jealousy causes him to do things that in the beginning of the play he could never imagine. It makes him so angry and hateful that he plots for revenge. Desdemona and Othello are madly in love in the beginning and in the end Othello’s feelings for Desdemona do not change but they are fogged by jealousy and lies.

Savagery in Othello and Lord of The Flies In all of us lies savagery; vile and animalistic impulses, typically brought out by extreme circumstance. This truth is the essence of Othello by William Shakespeare and Lord Of The Flies by William Golding. Othello focuses on the character Iago’s manipulation of Othello, a Venetian general. He believes that Othello had an affair with his wife Emilia, and feels resentful toward him for choosing Cassio instead of him as lieutenant, when he is clearly more experienced. As a result of these perceived injustices, Iago sets out to ruin Othello.
But, Othello did not seem to think so. This caused Iago to feel like he wasn 't appreciated and he vowed to get revenge on Othello. He got his revenge by working Othello 's mind to believe that Desdemona was cheating on him with Cassio. After Iago got Cassio drunk one night, Cassio lost his place as lieutenant. Iago suggested that he go plead to Desdemona to show her he is a good man, and then she would convince Othello.
His ultimate choice is choosing between trusting Desdemona or Iago. Iago’s influence on Othello is so great that he is transformed into a man that no one recognizes. His jealousy is terrifying because of the noble way he originally held himself. Othello does not even recognize the man he becomes and refers to himself as “he that was Othello” (“Othello.” Shakespeare A-Z 471). Othello’s jealous spirit drives him to murder his wife; he cannot stop his obsession with the alleged affair until she is harmed (“Othello.” Shakespeare for Students 663).

To try to prove his masculinity to Katherina, he berates and abuses his servants as to make him look manly. He wants to bend Katharina to his will and is willing to be cruel to her, to prove he is able to tame his wife and be virile. This, in turn, causes Curtis to state “By this reckoning he is more shrew than she” (act four, scene one), but Curtis has known Petruchio before this event and has not seen this shrewish side to him before. This suggests Petruchio is only putting on an act and is only presenting himself like that to Katherina, and his true nature is not so shrewish. Petruchio is also described as a shrew on his wedding
