Othello is quite the jealous and gullible type of character. Iago started to cause trouble between Othello and his wife Desdemona. Iago decided that he would tell Othello that Desdemona has been unfaithful, by cheating on him with Cassio. While at Cyprus Iago spreads the rumor about Cassio and Desdemona seeing each other to Roderigo. “Is this the noble Moor whom our full senate call all in all sufficient?
Another reason for Iago’s hatred towards Othello is that he has been accused of sleeping with Emilia, Iago’s wife. Both these motives are centered around revenge and selfish desires. Earlier in the play, Iago’s manipulation is brilliantly showcased through his interactions with Roderigo. In fact, when the ever slow and gullible Roderigo finally begins to catch onto the fact that Iago is using him, Iago says, “Thou hast taken
In the beginning on the play Iago talks about his hatred towards Othello and gives the audience an inside view on all of his true motives. “I hate the Moor, / And it is thought abroad that ’twixt my sheets / He’s done my office. I know not if ’t be true, / But I, for mere suspicion in that kind, / Will do as if for surety.” (Othello 1.3.366-370) Iago has heard some rumors that Othello has slept with his wife and that gives him enough hatred to try and destroy Othello. He also wants Cassio’s position so he decides to take down both Cassio and Othello with one lie. “After some time, to abuse Othello’s ear / That he is too familiar with his wife.
Iago also seems to be jealous of Othello because of a rumour that Emilia slept with Othello. He remarks in his soliloquy: ‘I hate the Moor, And it is thought abroad that ‘twixt my sheets He’s done in my office. I know not if ‘t be true,’. So this is a stronger motive for destroying Othello’s happiness. The dramatic irony suggests that Iago is jealous and wants revenge for more than not securing his promotion, and the audience wonder what other motives he has.
That real love has to be chosen. She also states, that if you have chooses you have consequences that go along with it. Compared to the Wife of Baths Tale the wife was more faithful and honest. The moral of the story was to be faithful and honest to one another and you will have a wonderful marriage. So in conclusion, both tales " The Wife of Bath's Tale" and "Franklin's Tale" focused on the ideal of marriage in two different ways.
“As Iago, the man of resentment par excellence, who represents the levelling jealousy of all superior attainment, says of Cassio: "he hath a daily beauty in his life that makes me ugly" ( Othello, 5.2) (Bonetto I).” Since he was elected to be Othello’s lieutenant, Iago has a motive to be bitter and jealous towards Cassio. Iago never understood why Othello ch... ... middle of paper ... ... suspicion that he had slept with his wife, Emilia. Therefore Iago convinced Othello with the perfect evidence that his wife, Desdemona was cheating on him with Cassio. As the tragedy began to unfold everyone was able to see Iago true colors and see the conniving, lying, and backstabbing person that he is. Everyone’s fate was in the hands of Iago, the villain.
The irony behind this line is where he continues: "I know not if't be true/ But I, for mere suspicion in that kind; / Will do as if for surety"(I.iii.383-385). Iago is so exceedingly paranoid and insane that he will go far as murdering, and deluding even a general into murdering his wife. Iago simultaneously conducts a devious plan to obtain Cassio's position as lieutenant, using Desdemona's prime weakness; her naivety. He disgraces Cassio by intoxicating him enough so he strikes Roderigo. Othello then discharges Cassio of his Lieutenancy when he says: "Cassio, I love thee,/ But nevermore be officer of mine" (II.iii.242-244).
It is easy to see that his primary motivation is jealousy: jealousy that Othello may have slept with his wife, and jealousy that Othello chose Cassio over him. As he plots his revenge, it is clear Iago respects and cares for no one. (Act 1, Scene 3, 378-381) I hate the Moor, And it is thought abroad that ‘twixt my sheets H'as done my office. I know not if't be true, But I, for mere suspicion in that kind, Will do, as if for surety. Iago states here he suspects Othello may have slept with his wife.
The second is of Othello; he believes that Othello slept with Emilia (his wife). “It is thought aboard that ‘twixt my sheets” (I.iii.369-370). As he becomes fixed with revenge he speaks by saying, he will not be satisfied “’Til I am evened with him/wife for wife/ At least into jealousy so strong/ that judgment cannot cure (2.1.299-302). In the end Iago is forced to expose his actual nature. Emilia is close to Desdemona and it may be that her jealousy is resentful, because of her low social status, unhappy with her job, Desdemona being married to Othello or Desdemona’s innocence.
These two families the Montagues and the Capulets truly dislike each other for no true reason. For example at the beginning of the script Sampson, a Capulet says “Nay, as they dare. I will bite my thumb at them; which is disgrace to them, if they bear it,” (I, i, 44) to his Capulet friend in order to pick a fight with a Montague. In addition the feud continues between the families when Romeo kills Tybalt and also how the Capulets and Montagues almost started a brawl in front of the Prince. Again hatred was demonstrated by Lady Capulet when she says “We will have vengeance to one in Mantua, shall give him such an unaccustomed dram that he shall soon keep Tybalt company,” (III,v, 98) referring to Romeo.
