  • Race In Othello Analysis

    The concept of “Race” plays a very significant and critical role on Othello, the play in which Shakespeare tells the story of the “dark Moor” who eventually finds himself struggling against his jealousy in the midst of white society. The very beginning of the play may be considered illusory for a reader who is unfamiliar with Othello's character: in fact, many derogatory terms are used, especially by the villain Iago and his confederate Rodorigo, to define Othello.

  • Jealousy In Othello Analysis

    Iago also tells Roderigo (who loves Desdemona) that he hates Othello for promoting Cassio over his head despite his long service.
