I need help on my English essay- on Shakespeare othelloWatch this thread
The question is how does shakespeare show the good and evil in othello about the charecter othello himself
Its due next week- please someone help me out with this essay
As he starts from a well respected and fluent at the start of the play, towards the end othello becomes less fluent
Shakespeare portrays him as good at first with his fluency, yet he becomes less coherent and more "barbaric" as the play progresses. He begins the play with words of peace yet ends it with actions (kisses and killing). Explore why words and fluency depict "good" and barbaric actions represent "bad" - isn't it something to do with racial perspectives at the time?
Othello's "evil" is brought out by Iago. Discuss whether the evil was inside Iago all the time or whether he merely brought out the evil within Othello. Jealousy isn't necessary an 'evil' emotion yet it led Othello to commit heinous deeds.
The "good" within Othello - his quote "one who has not loved wisely but too well." Couldn't you conclude that Shakespeare has portrayed Othello as good, because his actions were not due to evil of the heart but rather blind loving and trusting? That it wasn't Othello who was the evil but the environment?
Good luck on your essay x
