NO! Othello is DEFINITELY a tragedy.

Shakespeare's Othello is essentially a tragedy

Shakespeares "Othello"

Othello has been called a domestic tragedy because it deals with the matter between husband and wife. However, if we analyse it then we come to know that Othello as a whole is not a domestic tragedy, because Othello was not aware of the family politics and the gentle woman of Venice(?) Although it appears to be a domestic tragedy, it'd really just a general tragedy.

Othello is the protagonist and title character of the play.

Tragedy is from ancient Doric Greek, meaning a "goat weaner" it was used by shakespeares actors.

During the brawl, Iago kills Roderigo.

Certainly. It is a tragedy, as the characters we sympathize with end up dead. It is domestic, because the locus of the tragic events is the marriage between Othello and Desdemona.

The full title of Othello is "The Tragedy of Othello, the Moor of Venice." It's relevance is what it tells us about the play we are going to see, read, or study. First, it tells us that the play is a tragedy. Second, it tells us that it is about someone named Othello. Third, it tells us that Othello is a Moor from Venice.

Yes, it all ends in blood and tears.

Like in real life. Othello is both responsible and victim of circumstances.

The play Othello is a tragedy because both main and minor characters die in the end. Othello kills his innocent wife Desdemona and then he commits suicide. Iago kills Emilia. But fortunately Cassio is still well and alive. He is then proclaimed governor of Cyprus.

Othello is a play by William Shakespeare in which Iago, the subordinate of the general Othello, conspires to persuade Othello that his wife Desdemona is having an affair with one of his officers, Cassio. As a result Othello kills his innocent wife and then himself when he learns the truth.

Macbeth, Othello, Romeo and Juliet, King Lear theres more but i forget

Iago is a character from Shakespeare's play Othello.

Othello is a stage play in the form of a tragedy in which a good man falls to ruin after an evil man inflames him with jealousy.

Iago is obviously the villain, but if Othello had not been susceptible to Iago's lies because of jealousy, they would have had no effect.
