Othello puts way too much trust in Iago and believes everything he is telling him. Othello becomes very angry and wants to kill Cassio. Rodrigo also in love with Desdemona finds out that Cassio loves her too. Iago uses this to convince Rodrigo to kill Cassio and both of them ultimately are killed. Othello then tells Desdemona that Cassio is dead and wants her to admit to cheating with him but she denies it all.
Through "Othello," Iago uses the other characters to avenge the wrong doings which Othello has inflicted upon him, and will go to any means to do so. The play starts out with Iago not attaining the position he wanted from Othello, but rather the position was given to Cassio, who in Iago's mind is unqualified for the job. This is where Iago starts to spin his web of destruction. Iago hates Othello with a passion, and in his heart he truly believes that Othello has slept with his wife Emilia. "I hate the Moor, and it is abroad that 'twixt my sheets 'has done my office" Othello.
His argument is very reasoning to his defence and he eats so many reason to why the work works in its evil ways of discrimination. He wants everyone to that, it's very easy to not be very discriminated by the way you look but the way your skin color. Mr. King is very descriptive of his words and his meaning for them. He can really make the world change if everyone really did follow. King's reason for the speech is because he is trying to make a difference, he is a very good well taught speaker and he speaks with so much enthusiasm and nothing could really stop him from anything he's
One can also elude from this warning that he will only let you see what he wants you to see. One can see that Iago is clearly going to lie to Roderigo by that single statement. The statement alone should shoot red flags up in anyone’s mind. Once Roderigo gets Brabantio out of bed; Iago says something strange to Roderigo, “Though I do hate him as I do hell, yet, for necessity of present life, I must show out a flag and sign of love”(I.i.171-173). Subsequently warning Roderigo about how he lies to people, Iago expects Roderigo to trust him.
Othello is a highly respected general and is also married to the pure Desdemona. The marriage between Othello and Desdemona is destroyed due to Iago’s actions and lies. His actions consist of getting Michael Cassio discharged as lieutenant and convincing the Moor that his wife is cheating on him. The motives Iago has for despising Othello are he passed him over for a promotion to be his lieutenant, instead he chose Michael Cassio, and then he has suspicion that Othello slept with his wife, Emilia. Iago is miserable with his life, so he is going to make everyone else around him feel his misery.
A jealous man named Iago is in an argument with a rich man named Roderigo. They learn that Othello has just married Desdemona. Both of them hate Othello with a passion. Othello does not choose Iago to be his lieutenant which causes Iago to do everything in his power to ruin the life of Othello. Cassio, Othello’s choice for lieutenant, is introduced as a character that Iago uses to take revenge against Othello.
Iago is the ambitious but scheming villain of the play. When Othello promotes a man called Michael Cassio over Iago, he is furious and launches a malicious campaign against Othello. Meanwhile, Othello has married a white woman, Desdemona, without her father knowing. Through Iago’s plotting, Othello suspects that his wife is having an affair and after many murders and plots, Othello smothers his wife. But he finds out the truth about Iago, and horrified at his actions, kills himself.
Othello is desperate for people to know that he has swiftly dealt with his allegedly cheating wife to defend his honor and reputation. Rather than maintaining his reasonable disposition he possesses for a large duration of the play he gets blinded by jealousy, turning to lunacy. An example of this is when he begins to spew gibberish in the presence of Iago, upset with his wife's alleged infidelity, saying, “Pish! Noses, ears, and lips--is’t possible? Confess--handkerchief--O, devil!” (4.1.50-52).
What glues Iago’s rage and his treatment of his wife is the fact that Iago describes his wife metaphorically, his office as well as his seat. He objectifies her and takes away her humanity. Ultimately for Iago to gain his revenge: he uses both female characters Desdemona and Emilia as pawns in his wicked game. Iago wishes to be ’evened with him, wife for wife’ (Othello: Act 2. Sc.
Especially when have a daughter that falls in love with a man you dislike. If you think that is tough, think about the pain Brabantio had to go through. “I am one, sir, that comes to tell you your daughter/ and the moor are now making the beast with two backs.” Iago stired up some drama between Brabantio and Othello. His crude euphemistic metaphor remarks Iago’s crassness and his desire to harm those above him in society. The two hating and jealous men storm the home of the senator, Brabantio, and father of Desdemona in a vain effort to have him recover the missing girl.
