In the Shakespearean play Othello Iago is the villainous evil character of the story He proves this through spite and revenge jealousy and cowardice What confuses the readers though is that Iago has no apparent motivation no reason for doing any of the things that he does Iago is obsessed by revenge He holds grudges against almost everyone in the play He resents Othello because of his high position and believes that he has slept with Emilia Iagos wife Because he thinks this he feels that he needs to get his revenge by sleeping with Desdemona or in his words wife for wife IIi286 He has no remorse whatsoever for any of the things he does and he doesnt care who the consequences land on as long as its not him Iago never seems to have the actual fault in the things that are done They are his ideas but he has others carry them out for him When he kills Roderigo it symbolizes that he will now do absolutely anything to achieve his ache for after power Iago cannot handle people having power over him He struggles with the jealous rage of the green-eyed monster and loves seeing people hurt and suffering With his entire being he wants to be powerful more than anything else When Roderigo comes to him for help it gives Iago a glimmer of hope that he might be able to have what he wants power over all The final scene that final night when everything is winding down Iago realizes that This is the night That either makes me or fordoes me quite Vi130131 He works his hardest to prove to everyone that he is the one who should be in command Iagos sick and twisted way of thinking with no yielding to anyone shows just how selfish jealous and extreme he really is Through all his outward confidence Iago clearly has no bravery within him
