OTHELLO By William Shakespeare MAJOR PLAYERS THEMES Jealousy (the sexual jealousy of Othello,

Iagos professional jealousy of Cassio) Appearance vs. Reality (including honesty/dishonesty and loyalty/disloyalty) Reputation Public vs. Private Concerns Racism (including ideas of alienation and belonging)

I M A G E RY T O L O O K F O R W H E N READING OTHELLO Animals- usually insulting imagery esp. when used by Iago: An old black ram is tupping your white ewe. As Othello comes under Iagos influence, he echoes imagery: I had rather be a toad

Poison and Disease- reflects corruption of Venetian society and Othellos mind. Iagos words, Othellos jealousy eventually we get to actual poison as a weapon. Hell and the Devil: NUMEROUS reference to hell and damnation. Look closely at the names Othello and Desdemona. BLACK AND WHITE

Of course we cannot ignore the black vs. white issue here. How it is used tells us a lot about the beliefs of society at the time.
