Richard III
What Richard III did was Right, or Wrong King Richard III, in my opinion, was a greedy, yet determined man who would do whatever it took to achieve the position of king of England. What he did to get to this position was wrong, however, how he went about achieving what he wanted shows that he had intelligence. Having to kill a family member to get to where he wanted to be, did not even stop him. I believe that him doing this was very dishonorable. Even the book, Shakespeare and the Renaissance...

Richard II
Richard became king at the age of ten, taking over for his father, Edward the Black Prince, Edward III’s oldest son, who predeceased his father. This elevation gave the boy authority over all nobles, including his uncles. Once crowned, Richard’s right to rule and to have his commands obeyed was supported by the order of God, since it was believed that the king’s power was issued directly from God. The king served as the representative of God on Earth, and to resist the will of the king was to o...

Othello
During the Elizabethan times it was uncommon for black people to act out roles in plays. Shakespeare introduces this to his audience in two plays, the first Titus Andromicus and the second Othello. The first black character, Aaron, is portrayed as a secondary villain. Othello on the other hand is of higher status than many of his peers in the play. This was different for Shakespeare to present a minority person with such authority as a main character. Even with such, many different racial slurs...

In Othello, we encounter Iago, one of Shakespeare’s most evil characters. Iago is an officer in Othello\'s army and is jealous of Cassio\'s promotion to Lieutenant. Through deception and appearance, we see many lies and clever schemes unfold. The astonishing thing about Iago is that he seems to make up his malicious schemes as he goes along without any planning. I agree with the critics that say Iago represents a "motiveless malignity". Throughout the play, Iago portrays himself as a devil figu...

If one reads Shakespeare\'s Othello, they can come to the conclusion that it might be one of the his most tragic plays ever written by Shakespeare.

William Shakespeare\'s "Othello" presents all of the elements of a great tragedy, according to Aristotle\'s definition: "A tragedy is the imitation in dramatic form of an action that is serious and complete, with incidents arousing pity and fear wherewith it effects a catharsis of such emotions" (Poetics 14) He also adds, "The language used is pleasurable and throughout, appropriate to the situation in which it is used."

Othello Tragedy
One of the most interesting and exotic characters in the tragic play " Othello", by William Shakespeare, is "honest" Iago. At first Iago seems to be motiveless. However, the motivation behind his actions lie more in Iago\'s quest for personal gain, as opposed to just being evil for evil\'s sake. Iago\'s greediness can be validated by examining his manipulation of Roderigo, Cassio, and most importantly, Othello. Iago\'s main interest is the destruction of Othello. The reason being that Othello h...

Lots of times people get love and lust confused. In Shakespeare’s Othello, the characters in this book are very confused about the difference and it results in perplexity, confusion, commotion and death. This is shown in Shakespeare’s use of symbolism, characterization and irony. The person who best illustrates this theme is Roderigo. He tells Iago, "That thou, Iago, who hast had my purse," to get Desdemona for himself. (I,I,2) He pays Iago to get Desdemona, not knowing that he really is not in...

"If Othello didn’t begin as a play about race, history has made it one." The Venetian society that Othello is set in is representative of the writers context. The attitudes and values that Shakespeare reveals through the text are those same attitudes and values of Elizabethan society in England in the sixteenth-century. Although Othello is set in Venice and Cyprus, the attitudes and values shared in the text are probably reflective of the attitudes and values of Shakespeare\'s own society. It i...

Of these four characters Roderigo reveals the weakest character traits. Iago effortlessly profits from Roderigo’s deficiency in a intelligence, in fact Iago himself said he would not waste time and effort on"such a snipe"(I iii 387) except for "sport...

His evilness and ambition for revenge has the ability to grasp each reader’s attention and not let go. And Shakespeare wastes no time in presenting his audience with such an astounding character. As the play opens, it immediately becomes apparent that Iago is already at work. He is using his skills to, once again, convince Roderigo that he will persuade Desdemona to fall in love with him, and in...

William Shakespeare presents an excellent leader but a poor reasoner in Othello. The eponymous hero has strength, charisma, and eloquence. Yet these ideals of leadership do not bode well in real world situations. The battlefield and Senate are, at least in Othello, depicted as places of honor, where men speak truly. In addition, the matters of war and state are relatively simple; no one lies to Othello, all seem to respect him. He never even has to fight in the play, with the enemy disappearing...

Although there are lots of things to suggest this is a racist play I don\'t think that racism actually dominates the play, even though it has a racist theme. There is a romantic union between black and white which gets destroyed because most people think the relationship is wrong. At the time the play was written, 1604, even the Queen of England was racist so there must have been a strong hatred of blacks around that time. Most racist comments in the play are said by people that are angry or up...
