    It's been a while since I did othello for my English literature coursework at GCSE. But you could include some of these ideas:
    Othello caused his own fall by:
    Trusting too easily (Iago)
    Going against societys norms by marrying desdemona (plot events wouldn't have happened if he had not)
    His poor judgement
    Weak character (easily led, influenced and manipulated by others)
    His own pride
    His role as an outsider in society (was he ever going to thrive in a society that couldn't treat him as an equal?)
    His jealously and passion
    Hope this helps!

    So would you argue Iago didn't cause Othello's downfall?
