Furthermore, Iago manipulates Othello to believe that Desdemona is cheating while the all along she is being truthful about her innocence. Iago does this to try to gain Othello's trus... ... middle of paper ... ...e hostile thus murdering his wife. Iago's intentions are primarily based on revenge on Cassio for taking his position as lieutenant and anger against Othello for not appointing him instead. Though Iago manages to attain the position as lieutenant by setting Cassio up by causing him to sword fight thus getting himself demoted, he is not satisfied not until Othello is punished. His machinations fell right into place since everyone trusted him and if it was not for Emilia finding and giving Othello's handkerchief to Iago.
The second part “makes the whole world blind” means that revenge will not solve problem. Instead, it creates problems. In Othello, the evil Iago manipulates Othello into ruining his own life in the name of revenge. He tells Othello that his wife, Desdemona, is cheating on him. He presents Othello fake evidence time and time again until he is convinced.
He is so determined that he steals money from his friend to keep his plan going. This is all possible because of his reputation as honest, which also makes him responsible for the deaths of all that die throughout the play. Iago is the man to blame and is to be held accountable for all the deaths in Othello demonstrated through the theme of deception creates conflict. Iago is to be blamed for the deaths of all those that died because he manipulates other to do as he pleases. He is so good at manipulating others that he gets Barbantio to hate the Moor so much for marring Desdemona that he dies because “thy match was to mortal to him” (V,ii,206).
The only possible reason for Iago’s hatred of Othello could be the fact that he has suspicions that Emilia is sleeping with Othello. This would create a parallelism between these two characters as the only way for him to get his revenge is to make Othello feel the way he does. Thus resulting in the death of his wife seeing that the way Othello responds to incidents is with violence. Iago, often being known as the most evil character out of all the Shakespearian plays seeing that “even when his evil deeds are out in the open, Iago never repents” (Ormann 1). The character of Iago targets Othello, Desdemona and Cassio in order to ruin their happy lives.
Monstrous!" He trusts Iago too much and totally relies on Iago therefore making him really vulnerable to his evilish schemes. He lets his thoughts take over, he loses control of himself and acts on his emotions. He lets his thoughts clutter his mind and good judgment. Another example would be when Emilia told Othello about Desdemona death, and he admits to murdering his honest wife Desdemona, but says that he killed her because she was untrue to him.
Two scenes later Iago presents another reason for his hatred for Othello. Rumors have spread around that Othello and Emilia have slept together. Whether or not this is true, Iago sees this as enough reason to get his revenge. As he sets out to destroy more than Cassio throughout the play, Iago was able to plant seeds of doubt, insecurities, and lies. He put this into action with all the supporting characters around him to cause Othello to believe that his wife was in fact having an affair with Cassio, and that was the furthest thing from the truth.
In the beginning of the play Othello loved Desdemona, but as the play went on Othello hated Desdemona so much he wanted to kill her. Desdemona perceives herself as the most loyal wife anyone could have. Othello perceives the total opposite when he sees Desdemona. When Iago first told him that Desdemona is cheating on him. Othello looked at Iago like he was irrational but after Iago convinced him of Desdemona cheating he perceived everyone as his enemy because Iago had great reputation.
Tragedy is mostly seen in characters pure and innocent. The deaths of those whom are innocent have a blindness to see the deceitfulness in others. Characters die who do not deserve their unfortunate fates. Desdemona is the heart of Iago’s plan and her loyalty to Othello eventually leads to her death bed. Emilia’s husband is the villain she hates, but giving him the one item he needs dooms everyone.
The Irony of William Shakespeare's Othello Irony plays a great role in ?The Tragedy of Othello?. The villain, Iago, plans from the very beginning of the play to ruin Othello?s life. All the major characters in the play believe that Iago is an honest and trustworthy person. The tragic irony is that Iago fools them all. Throughout the whole play Iago manipulates the people around him and lies to them.
Because of this, Iago pushes everyone to their tragic end. Iago wants vengeance on Othello so he targets his wife Desdemona. He slowly poisons people’s thoughts so they have distorted perceptions of reality, without them even knowing he did such a thing. In reality, Desdemona is quite an outspoken woman for her time. She pleas for Othello to have Cassio around so her husband can have good, solid protection.
