Othello says to her “It gives me wonder great as my content to see you here before me. O my soul’s joy!” (2.1.199-200). These beautiful and loving words are soon changed to hostility and rage with the thought of Desdemona’s betrayal. Both Desdemona and Hero are accused of being unfaithful through presented “ocular proof”, they are both disgraced by the leading male role, and they are young and inexperienced in the ways of love and both women are extremely forgiving after they have been mistreated by their suitors. Much Ado about Nothing was written by William Shakespeare as a comedy, but it could have very well been turned into a tragedy comparable to Othello.
(Stabs herself) There rust and let me die.”-P. 579 lines (169-171). It’s really sad that all of this could have been avoided if Juliet would’ve just left with Romeo or if their families gave up their hatred for one another. Throughout Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet’s personality drastically changes. At first Romeo was love-sick and Juliet didn’t want anything to do with marriage. Then they meet, fall in love and get married.
He warned Romeo that “violent delights have violent ends and in their triumph die, fire and powder, which as they kiss, consume.” (2:6:9-11). Friar Lawrence had a feeling that the quick and hasty decisions that were made would not end well. However, he continued on to marry them, believing that their marriage would stop their parents’ feud. In addition, Friar Lawrence gave Juliet the idea of faking her death and saying, “…take thou this vial, being then in bed…” (4:5:93). He suggested the plan of killing herself, which led to Romeo committing suicide due to the death of Juliet.

The contrasting of Othello’s language at the start of scene and the end of the scene laments the loss of his sanity, rationality and his loss of interest in his life with
Iago feels that the best way to do so is by manipulating Othello telling him that his wife is cheating on him with Cassio, who Iago coincidently hates as well. Iago reveals, “That thinks men honest that but seem to be so, and will as tenderly be led by the nose as asses are. I have ‘t. it is sengender’d. Hell and night must bring this monstrous birth to the worlds light” (Shakespeare 1.
This essay will discuss and highlight Othellos character and actions.There will be a contrast made between Othello at the beginning of the play and his downfall throughout the play. As seen in the play Othello’s love for Desdemona is an intense deep love. This is proven when Barbanzio (Desdemonas father) accuses Othello of using witchcraft to make her fall in love with him. Othello responds saying “The trust, the office i do hold of you not only take away but let your sentence even all upon my life”. Here he is saying that is Desdemona claims that her fathers accusations are right then they may not only take his position buth is life included.
Iago’s murder of Emilia could also come from the general hatred of women that he displays. Emilia can be seen as a cover up to Iago’s true sexuality.

Or, if thou wilt needs/marry, marry a fool; for wise men know well enough/what monsters you make of them.
