Similarities Between Othello And Roderigo

Satisfactory Essays
James,
It seems we felt the same on Desdemona words being her dying wish to protect her true love. We also both saw Lago as being mortal yet very evil, he portrays this several times throughout the play. Othello’s choice of Cassio over Lago set all his demented ways in motion, thus being the result of the vain and narcissistic person he was. It appears he did once have a love for his wife which shows some empathy. However, over time his self-absorbed, self-centered ways along with his obsession for power and to be seen by others as he saw himself won out. Also, it seems both Othello and Roderigo insecurities revolved around a love for one woman, Desdemona.
Great post and I like the quotes you choose to back up each answer; well done.
