Should William Shakespeares Othello be called Iago It is possibly his greatest tragedy yet it has many problems curiosities and questions That is one specific question that should definately be thought about I believe Othello is a good name for the play It makes the reader think What is Othello going to do How is he going to do it And what they dont realize is that its Iago who brings about all these acts of evil Iago is the deceptive one who is hiding behind the scenes Some people would think that it should be called Iago for many reasons but not I Iago is a weird and confusing character Whatever the reason may be he is trying vigorously to ruin Othellos life Why Does he want some sort of revenge against any other character Or is he just envious of someone For all we know he could just be pure evil His malign and exciting speeches interest the reader a lot He is a down right equivocator and a deceptive person and an bright and sneaky character He has a thing for deceiving others into believing what is not true and he has a bad opinion of everyone yet he has no conscience He fooled everyone into thinking he was an trustworthy man He had more power than anyone else in this play So whats wrong with naming the play Iago who has greatly deceived Othello Iago deceived Othello Othellos life is ruined He has more lines than Othello does in this play hes more in the middle of things than him and is also more interesting than Othello as a character The play is not named after Iago because Iago is a villain and even though he is one of the main characters he is not the hero Othello is nothing like Iago who does do a good job of persuading the opposite of the truth Othello is a respectable Man
