  • The Destructiveness Of Othello And Jealousiness

    The Destructiveness of Jealousy and Greediness What made Othello, written by William Shakespeare in the 17th century, popular is that the play dealt with sensible topics as racism and race. The protagonist of the play is a dark skinned foreigner, surrounded by white characters. Othello’s race makes him sensible for criticism of the people around him, because he knows that he will always be the weaker ‘species’. But what is shown in this play is that it is not his race that will be his downfall. By displaying Othello as an alien, a weak man condemned by his appearance, sensible for influences of others, Shakespeare illustrates the destruction of envy and avarice. Iago uses envy to bring Othello down but he himself is also driven by jealousy. He wants to have everything; a loyal wife, a good career, wealth and respect from others but his greed leads to a tragic end in which he destroys all that he has accumulated on his path to have it all. The play starts with a conversation between Iago and Roderigo. Iago is angry because Othello, the leader of the Venetian army, chose Cassio to be his lieutenant instead of Iago. This is the first example of jealousy in the play.

Iago states that he himself is more suitable for the job. In this scene, Iago already makes clear…

  • Critical Thinking Reflection Paper

    For the past few weeks, I have learned about the concept of critical thinking. Learning about what it is to be a critical thinker has led me to a path of self-actualization, for it has allowed me to embrace what I do not know and to strive for the understanding of the unknown. The course on critical thinking has allowed me to analyze what I stand for and to recognize, strengthen, and even change my views by taking all sides of an argument into consideration to reach a conclusion. One of the…

  • In Defense Of Gender Equality

    She states how transpersons would be just this group of people where they could still find bias in these changes such as he/she. McFadden uses an example of how a local art critic changed her last name from Terman to Terwoman. A reader pointed out how this change still contains “man” (1981). Again, this is evidence of how someone perceives something and bias could still be seen. If someone is set out looking for bias, they will probably be able to find it. Sexual bias can be found in much…
