Humanities 125 Ultimate Villain In the movie Othello the Moor of Venice I found the play very tragic and sad It is a love story filled with lies deception and betrayal This movie deals with a couple in love played by Othello and Desdemona Both of them from the beginning have to fight and struggle to stay together Iago a young Venetian who pretends to be Othellos friend happens to be the viper that ultimately destroys Othello and Desdemona with his inhuman acts Iagos first act of deception was when he used Roderigo a foolish young Venetian to get into a fight with Cassio an honorable lieutenant Cassio became violent with the other officers then Cassio stabbed one of the officers Othello at this point was disappointed with Cassio So he took Cassios rank as a lieutenant and gave it to the next man Iago This was Iagos plan from the beginning which it helped him to get closer to Othello Iagos second act of hatred was when he convinced Othello that Cassio was angry at him because he had embarrassed him Iago made Othello believe that Cassio was in love with Desdemona he went as far to say that Cassio and Desdemona were lovers This made Othello crazy with anger but he realized that he does not have any solid proof Iago sees this and takes the next step by stealing Desdemona handkerchief given to her by Othello and puts it on Cassios reach This was all the proof that Othello needed to pursue his revenge The third and final act of betrayal by Iago occurs when Iago feels very confident of his powers of evil He speaks with Othello and convinces him that Cassio and Desdemona must die Iago offers to kill Cassio and he suggests to Othello that he must revenge his honor and betrayal of Desdemona
