    Theme Jealousy and suspicion. Othello explains that Desdemona became enamoured of him for the sad and compelling stories he told of his life before Venice, not because of any witchcraft. That same storm, however has also damaged the Turkish forces to the point that they pose little to no threat to the island anymore. Emilia eventually lets Cassio enter, telling him to wait while she fetches Desdemona. Brabantio's grievance is denied, and Desdemona will indeed stay with Othello. He tells her to pray a last prayer as he has no wish to kill her soul.

    Emilia thinks that someone has manipulated Othello, however, Iago is there to dispel this opinion. Iago calls Cassio in, while Othello hides; Iago speaks to Cassio of Bianca, but Othello, in his disturbed state, believes that Cassio is talking of Desdemona. Iago hates Othello for promoting a younger man named Cassio above him, whom Iago considers a less capable soldier than himself, and tells Roderigo that he plans to exploit Othello for his own advantage. Othello, hearing Cassio's cries for help, believes that half of the revenge is completed and hastens to fulfil his undertaking. Brabantio - A Venetian senator and the father of Desdemona, Brabantio is wary of Othello and his intentions and the marriage of his daughter. In yet another conversation with Roderigo, Iago convinces him not to give up his pursuit just yet.

    Othello, belatedly realising Desdemona's innocence, stabs Iago but not fatally, saying that Iago is a devil, and he would rather have him live the rest of his life in pain. However, when his opinion is asked, Iago only states that it is politics that have Othello so worked up. Bias If the source is a website, does the site have ads? Shakespeare explores man's ugliest trait in this opus and perfectly represents the idea of the 'tragic hero' in Othello, who wins over the responders early on but proceeds to make bad, almost wicked, decisions that will make it harder for the audience to like him until his eventual undoing.

Otello book

Although Brabantio accuses Othello of seducing his daughter by witchcraft, Othello explains that he won Desdemona by telling her his adventures, and Desdemona, called to testify, convinces the senators that she has freely gone with Othello and married him for love. Emilia gives it to Iago, who then tells Othello that Cassio has the handkerchief.

He plants seeds of doubt about Desdemona's fidelity.

Othello Summary

Displaying his silver tongue once more, Iago convinces him to stay and that all hope is not lost. The race of the title role is often seen as Shakespeare's way of isolating the character, culturally as well as visually, from the Venetian nobles and officers, and the isolation may seem more genuine when a black actor takes the role.

Returning to the military matter on which the scene opened, the Duke tells Othello that his presence is required in Cyprus to defend against the Turks. Written by William Shakespeare.

He lays out the entirety of his plan detailing how he will bring Othello to his death, including the ruse to fool Othello into believing Cassio and Desdemona are having an affair.

Brabantio has no option but to accompany Othello to the Duke's residence, where he accuses Othello of seducing Desdemona by witchcraft. Othello is overcome with grief. The undertone of these comments only works up Othello more, and when pressed hard enough, Iago finally contrives that Cassio confessed to him that he had lain down with Desdemona.
