The desire for social status and good reputation is evident in Othello in numerous ways. This desire is seen in various characters such as Iago, the villain of the book through his hate for Cassio because of Cassio’s status. Another way this desire is seen is through Cassio himself when he is stripped of his reputation, and therefore ruined.
