Jealousy. Another theme is honesty and dishonesty.

Othello was a play about a jealous husband that did not trust his wife so he killed her.

Othello is jealous because he thinks Desdemona has betrayed him and she has gone after Cassio so, he takes revenge by asking Iago to kill Cassio and he suffocates Desdemona to her death. Use quotes from Othello to prove this point e.g. when Othello starts talking about death.

The climax of Othello is when Othello goes into Desdemona's room to kill her.


They had a good relationship - Othello trusted Cassio and Cassio respected Othello

Othello from Shakespeare's Othello? He was a man, didn't have a husband. Had a wife though: Desdemona.

Brabantio warns Othello that if his daughter, Desdemona, deceived him in order to marry Othello, then she can just as easily deceive Othello.

The same way I would describe any other Othello. Othello is still Othello no matter what clothes you put him in.

Desdemona slept with Othello in the play. And despite what Othello thought, he was the only guy she slept with.

Iago opposes Othello because Othello chose to promote Cassio to lieutenant instead of Iago. Also, Iago is prejudice against Othello for his skin colour. Othello was a victim of the time he lived in.
