Of all the characters presented in Shakespeares Othello I want to discuss his portrayal of Desdemona who is the most beautiful figure in the play I find Desdemonas character contradictive in some ways She seems a very independent person in the beginning of the play but at the same time we see that she is described like somebodys property From her first speech I can say that she is a very good daughter and highly respects her father My noble father I do perceive here a divided duty To you I am bound for life and education My life and education both do learn me how to respect you 1 3 208 Also she loves her family because she says that she would be happy to have such family as well And so much duty as my mother showed to you preferring you before her father so much I challenge that I may profess due to the Moor my lord 1 3 215 The dipper discussion of Desdemonas character we can give by looking at how the other characters in the play describe her Brabantio knows his daughter is very smart and well educated and he doesnt believe that she can fall in love with what she feared to look on 1 3 116 Thats why he thinks that Othello wrought upon her some mixtures powerful oer the blood or with some dram conjured to this effect1 3 123 Brabantio describes his daughter as tender young fair and happy Othellos lieutenant Cassio also admires Othellos wife He says that the generals marriage is very fortunate He hath achieved a maid that paragons description and wild fame one that excels the quirks of blazoning pens and in th essential vesture of creation does tire the ingener 2 1 68 Also he says that she is most fresh and delicate creatureshe is indeed perfection 2 3 29 From this I can say that Desdemonas reputation is clear
