Our antagonist is an astounding piece of work. He pleads indifference despite dedicating

    promotion as Othello's new lieutenant chief of staff, the Moor having chosen instead a loyal Florentine, Michael Cassio, Iago now devised a scheme to rid himself of these sorry reminders of his own failings. He dispatched his inexperienced follower, Roderigo, to inform Brabantio of the illicit marriage.

However, all these reasons seem to be false and made-up just for the sake of being excuses for his malice or perhaps they seem to sum up a sense of paranoia.

    father has authority over the daughter. Brabantio’s admonition to Roderigo implicitly expresses the same message: The worser welcome: I have charged thee not to haunt about my doors: In honest plainness thou hast heard me say My daughter is not for thee [. . .] . (1.1) Iago’s continuing earthy appraisals of the situation all seem to bestow upon the father the power to make decisions for the daughter. Roderigo even calls Desdemona’s action a “revolt” against paternal authority:

    his daughter. This essay will explore the various types of love as portrayed in this tragedy. Initially the play presents a very distorted type of love. Act 1 Scene 1 shows Roderigo, generous in his gifts to the ancient, questioning Iago’s love for the former, whose concern has been the wooing of Desdemona. Roderigo construes Iago’s love for him as based on the ancient’s hatred for the Moor. Thus the wealthy suitor says accusingly, “Thou told'st me thou didst hold him in thy hate.” And Iago

    Othello and Desdemona aren’t exactly innocent either. Both of them are prime examples of just how easily the human psyche/mind can be manipulated to hating, betraying, and even killing the people they love (Othello mainly). Other characters, like Roderigo, Cassio, and Emilia, are also blameworthy.

All of these
