Shakespeares plays are still able to captivate a contemporary audience All the themes displayed in each one of his plays are still evident in the present and will probably aways be noticeable In the text Othello the 3 main themes that Shakespeare focuses on is deception jealousy honour and reputation Justice versus Love and prejudice each connecting to each other in one way or another Deception is the main theme of the text Othello Deception is to be described as being mislead or to fraud someone Deception is the key to Othello as without it Iago would not have achieved anything at all Deception is usually showed through Soliloquy dramatic irony and forshadowing which would be all used together to form tension in the audience Usually we would learn about Iagos plans this way For example I havet It is engendered Hell and night Must bring this monstrous nirth to the worlds light Act 1 Scene 3 Line 396 In this monologue Iago is trying to tell the audience that he is going to reveal how evil The Moor really is to the world giving us a clue that he is up to something evil once again This builds up suspence Othello is the most trustworthy and noble human being in this play but he is easily influenced and mislead Throughout the play Othello believes that Roderigo and Iago are trustworthy Act 1 Scene 3 Line 282 A man he is of honesty and trust Althrough the play this reminds the audience how evil Iago really is In the first scene we first see the decieving Iago going behind Othellos back and telling Brabantio about the black and evil Othello and the pure Desdemona his daughter being in wedlock Although we do not realise the deception and how evil Iago really is till scene 2 we can still see the leading up to Iagos major plan to be rid of The Moor once
