    RODERIGO. Thou told'st me thou didst hold him in thy hate. IAGO. Despise me, if I do not. Three great ones of the city, In personal suit to make me his lieutenant, Off-capp'd to him; and, by the faith of man, I know my price, I am worth no worse a place. But he, as loving his own pride and purposes, Evades them, with a bumbast circumstance Horribly stuff'd with epithets of war, And, in conclusion, Nonsuits my mediators; for, "Certes," says he, "I have already chose my officer." And what was he? Forsooth

    Christen Foley Mr. Czarnecki May 28th 2014 Period 6 Roderigo, Just a Puppet on a String : Analysis of Roderigo’s Reputation in Othello People love to believe that they are in full control of their current situation. Most people need to be in control, at least of their own lives. If a sense of control is tampered with people can lose self confidence, awareness and security. This can mean humans feel like they are vulnerable to dangers and negative influences around the world. More specifically, in

    Corruption In Othello

    In his perception, Roderigo, Cassio, and Othello pose a great threat to his accomplishments. They all are higher in rank, intelligence, and wealth, which causes Iago to feel inadequate in comparison throughout the play. He manipulates all three characters using oaths as power mechanisms; he forms elaborate schemes to overcompensate for his metaphysical loss of self and curb his unquenchable ambition. Iago’s pragmatic yet solipsistic worldview causes him to associate Roderigo and Cassio with society’s

    It is a common misconception to say that Roderigo is an inferior character in Othell, and that he plays no major role due to his simple superobjective which he does not achieve—which is to be with Desdemona by whatever means necessary. However, Shakespeare’s purpose for Roderigo, which makes him important to the play, is quite different from what Roderigo desires. Roderigo’s superobjective is introduced in the first act as we see Roderigo and Iago confront Brabantio about the whereabouts of Desdemona

    easily malleable Roderigo, coaxing him into attacking and hopefully killing Cassio. The tension grows within the text at this point because as soon as the events begin to unfold there is know way for the scheming Iago to turn back and rectify the situation. The final discourse between Iago and Roderigo is quick and full of Iago encouraging Roderigo to be bold and fight Cassio. ‘Quick, quick! Fear nothing; I’ll be at thy elbow’. This quote shows Iago reassuring Roderigo of the ease of the

    having previously convinced Roderigo to leave, Iago now has the attention of the entire audience. This makes Iago's speech a soliloquy and due to the fact that he speaks directly to the audience makes us, the viewer, aware of the self-reflexive nature of the play. We thus become aware that he is just a character in a play. Another example which makes it obvious that Iago is embarking on a speech that will prove self-reflexive is the total change in tone once Roderigo leaves. Just previous to

    consider the possibility that Iago is fooling them. One person Iago deceives is Roderigo.  Throughout the play, Iago tells him that he hates Othello and that Roderigo should make some money so he could give gifts to Desdemona, who he admires from afar.  Thinking that this is sound advice, Roderigo does just that.  However, Iago is actually keeping the gifts that Roderigo plans to give Desdemona for himself.  Eventually, Roderigo begins to catch on to the act and confronts Iago, but he falls right into

    from other Shakespeare plays that utilize the same theme, I turn arbitrarily to Iago to inspect a distinguishing mark of his of which the relevance to thematic form in the play will appear a little later. When Iago with unperceived scoffing reminds Roderigo, who is drawn with merciless attraction to the unreachable Desdemona, that love effects an unwonted nobility in men, he states a doctrine which he “knows” is true but in which he may not “believe.” Ennoblement by love is a real possibility in men

    take revenge on anyone, Othello, Desdemona, Cassio, Roderigo, and even Emilia and at the slightest provocation he enjoys the pain and damage he causes. Shakespeare also shows him to be funny, especially in his scenes with the foolish Roderigo, which serve as a showcase of his manipulative abilities. He seems almost to wink at the audience as he revels in his own skill. Iago cleverly puts the audience on side when he is with Roderigo, but the interactions between the two also reveal a streak

    intricate scheme for revenge results in the deaths of Othello, Desdemona, Iago's wife, and Roderigo, a suitor of Desdemona. The play begins in Venice where Othello and Desdemona are eloping.
