To be a tragic hero the hero character must be considered worthy and he must hold a position of authority and respect The tragedy takes place when he falls from this position Through the text it is clear Othello was revered as a man who was a worthy soldier and highly respected The Duke calls him the Valiant Othello and one of the senators refer to him as the brave moor It can also be seen that the men under his command hold him in high esteem with Cassio referring to him as Our Great Captain In the end the view of Othello is very different due to his tragic flaw of jealousy and pride Othello was adressed as a viper by Lodovico and was thought to be cowardly Oh then Othello that weret once so good and fallen in the practice of a damn slave The way he was referred to before his fall and then after shows that he was once of noble birth but then fell This unfortunate fall meant that Othello himself has lost his high position and respect from his men and even the people who commands him Othello had fallen so far that a man that he had previously commanded was the man who took that authority away Thats he that was Othello here i am where is the viper Bring the villain forth Othellos loss of respect can be seen by Desdemonas pleading with him while she lay on the bed just as her beloved husband is about to kill her And yet i fear you for you are fatal then She has lost all the respect that she once held for him and now no longer trusts him but fears him These points display that Othello has fulfilled a requirement of a tragic hero
