He is discussing how he hates Othello, yet he must feign loyalty for his position. This is already a clue to the reader that Iago cannot be trusted. This feeling of mistrust is vital in the mood of the play because it is most ironic that Othello trusts Iago as much as to murder his own wife. This ironic plot creates a frustrating feeling for the reader which is felt throughout the play. The mood is tense when we find out that Brabantio is angry that Othello has taken his daughter.
Othello was convinced he was acting nobly when he was committing his actions even though he was not being a noble character. Othello’s character embodies having a strong sense of nobility and dignity throughout the play. As Iago deceives Othello he loses his nobility contributing to his downfall. Othello’s reaction to murdering his wife is when he realises that he is at a very low point, and almost can’t escape to reality anymore. ‘My parts, my title, and my perfect soul shall manifest me rightly.’ The quote used to brand Othello to his word is quickly seen as ego instead of elegant talk.
Readers are lead to believe that Roderigo is an unintelligent, desperate and jealous man on accounts by two other characters, Brabantio and Iago. Perhaps, there may be more to Roderigo’s story but readers will never know because of the lack of evidence. Influencing Roderigo’s reputation in Othello, Brabantio, Desdemona’s father has negative feelings toward Roderigo. Roderigo’s main source of motivation in the play is Desdemona and his lust toward her. Brabantio would not be classified as a supporter of Roderigo and this definitely doesn’t work in favor of Roderigo because he yearns to marry Desdemona.Brabantio’s point of view is very negative.
Roderigo is so envious of Othello that he is willing…. Roderigo eventually realizes that Iago is just stringing him along and tells him, “I have wasted myself out of my means. The jewels you have had from me to deliver Desdemona would half have corrupted a votarists,” (4.2.185). Roderigo continues to manifest his envy by trying to win Desdemona’s affection with jewels. However, Roderigo continues to strive for her attention, and has “given [him] satisfying reasons: ‘Tis but a man gone.

He started the play as a vain young man mostly concerned about his appearance and his own selfish love and the perks that came with it. However, people learn from their mistakes and this is evidently true in Claudio’s case. The plays ends as all of Shakespeare’s comedies do, with Claudio and Hero dancing with the rest in the harmonious dance of life.

He uses the handkerchief and his knowledge of the importance of it to Othello to create chaos. While Iago further pushed Othello into believing his stories about Desdemona’s unfaithfulness, he states, “Her honor is an essence that’s not see: they have it very oft that have it not” (Act I, Scene I, Lines 16-17).
Iago is a man who uses jealousy against those around him; however, this jealously seems to be what fuels his own loathing in the first place. Iago’s jealously is first shown at the beginning of the play when he is speaking with Roderigo about the Moor. He says: Despise me If I do not. Three great ones of the city In personal suit to make me his lieutenant Off-capped to him, and by the faith of man I know my price, I am worth no worse a place. (I.i.1165) In other words, Iago believes he deserves the position of lieutenant, but Othello has different plans.

He is aware of his selfishness and impure affiliation, yet he wreaks vengeance upon Dimmesdale, who really does love Hester. Existing with one extreme or another, the characters in The Scarlet Letter must weigh the importance of maintaining the standards of society against satisfying their own impulses. The pressures to conform to ideals are great; only Hester Prynne withstands them fully and stands boldly in the light of her sin. Her cowardly lover Arthur Dimmesdale is not so strong, and it takes the intervention of Pearl and Roger Chillingworth - granted they impact Dimmesdale oppositely - before he is finally able to uphold his sin publicly.
Feeling that in acting the part of a villain he fulfils a role delegated to him by his own blood. Shakespeare informs the audience early on of the significance of Don John being a bastard. The society of Messina shuns Don John not solely due to his illegitimacy but also owing to his silence ‘I am not of many words’. Most of the characters in the play prove outgoing, talkative and social while such chattiness leads to problems when other characters overhear secrets. Don John’s silence emerges as more disagreeable than willing to divulge secrets.
Another similarity that links the two characters is how they chase after their own desires.

By analyzing Cassio and Roderigo’s similarities and differences, one can see Shakespeare’s theme of how ignorance, whether it be words of advice from others or just indications, can lead to one’s downfall. Cassio and Roderigo both play an essential role in showing how being persistent to attain what we want is not always the correct approach.
