Othello Othello is the title of the character and play that we all studied earlier this semester However it is Othello the character that I intend to discuss Othello is the husband to the beautiful and innocent Desdemona whom he murders because the villainous and honest Iago has misled him A Moorish general in Venice a society plagued with racism and where adultery is neither condemned nor approved of Othello is in the midst of a society that will hinder and not support his progress The central theme of the drama is the alteration of a noble lover to a raving killer under the influence of the deliberate connivance of his aide Iago who convinces him that his wife is having a love affair with another officer named Cassio Unable to trust the falsely corrupted Desdemona - he lacks the essential element of love and it is this absence of trust that causes Othello to disintegrate morally This destructiveness extends to his own suicide when his error of judging Desdemona to be an adulteress fails him Our closely woven relationship with this traumatised and gullible Othello causes us to suffer with him as he experiences emotional agonies such as the destruction of his once reputable nobility character and marriage to the young Desdemona Through Act II Scene I Othello presents himself to us as a grandly positive and content character It gives me wonder great as my content To see you here before me O my souls joy Act II Scene II At this stage in the play Othello has also assembled his character to impose on us an impression that he is a noble and prominent figure in the Venetian establishment and respected military man and a loving husband He carries himself with an impressive dignity while frankly delighting in his young wifes unconditional love which he values above the seas worth Act II Scene I
