A destructive love Essay --
A destructive love Othello is such a character who is portrayed as a tragic hero by dint of his high rank in army, jealousy caused by racial outclassedity, and credulousness for the villain Iago. In Shakespeares play, The Moor of Venice, jealousy is the major fragment constructed though out the entire play and eventually leads to Othellos downfall and ultimately destroys his marriage with Desdemona. The play is a story of a shocking hero in the white community at an era of limiting from racist past to a less biased future. During this amicable read period, a nasty Moor is able to be promoted over former(a) white men and therefore Othello is in a higher ranking than most of white people in Venetian decree. However, during this period of alteration, some social disciplines and social understanding are arbitrary. On whizz side, the society promotes a certain degree of racial equality by having black Moor appointed as general. On other side, Othello is alienate d in Venetian society because most Venetians see him as an outsider whom is defend their country. Therefore, Othello only gains respect for his bravery in fighting the war and his temper for being a skilled general in the army and cypher else like his lieutenant, Cassio is, who comes from an upper class and white race family and has strong social skill. Othello is clearly informed the fact that he is not being recognize as part of Venetian society, yet he cannot do anything to the subsisting class prejudices. But not only that he is fully aware of presented racial prejudices, this racism has somewhat made him feel racially inferior to other light skinned people around him. Othellos racial inferiority is intensified when he is being compared to Cassio ... ..., his jealousy of honor has blind his mind and he wrestled with a rising feeling of impotence, self-pity and vengeance. Yet, this jealousy besides blinds his mind when Desdemona tries to defend herself before Othell o smothers her. Othello firmly supposes his wife has cheated on him, and he confirms his deed by telling himself that he is defending his honor. Therefore, I believe that right before Othello kills Desdemona, he himself is too afraid that he is price about Desdemona because he firmly confirms himself the purpose of this monstrous murder with an plain upright reason. However, his self-affirmation is crushed as Emilia reveals the truth about the hanky and the fact that Iago has plotted all these traces to mislead Othello. Othellos loss of his one true love is like the base Judean, threw a pearl extraneous/ Richer than all his tribe (5.2.352-353).
