While Othello is barraged by racism, he manages to resist its pull for some time. Othello discusses his race throughout the play—usually in response to something a white Venetian says—but here he makes his first negative reference to it, suggesting that perhaps his blackness is to blame for his lack of conversational ability.
It is a quiet moment, but a hugely significant one.
When he turns the race weapon against himself, he dooms both himself and Desdemona.
Among Iago’s many repulsive qualities, his eagerness to hurl racial epithets is perhaps the most shocking.
Most potent, grave, and clergyman signiors, / My really baronial and approved good Masterss? Othello continues by stating what he has done stating? / The really caput and forepart of my piquing / Hath this extent, no more? Othello is stating the worst that he can be accused of. and ironically, Othello begins to believe that Cassio holds his topographic point in Desdemona? Even more dry is in the terminal when Cassio takes Othello? Another dry state of affairs is that Iago is ranked 3rd below Othello. Othello is being manipulated the worst by Iago, yet still sees Iago as honest, even more than the others do. This technique provides the audience with a better penetration on what is traveling on in state of affairss along with the characters?
s girl, / It is most true ; true, I have married her. s repute as being honest, which additions him success in his uses. The concluding and major sarcasm is how Iago is seen by all as being an honest adult male. When plotting to interrupt up others he uses the phrase? The sarcasm of Iago as being seen as an honest adult male is at extremes when discoursing Othello. In Othello one sees that both verbal and dramatic sarcasm are of import factors.
The floodgates have opened, and now Othello is in danger of believing all of Iago’s racist nonsense.
In the next lines, Othello compares himself to a toad living in a dungeon, as if he has begun to suspect that his blackness makes him a loathsome animal, somehow less than human.
Only when Othello buys into the absurd idea that his race inherently makes him dangerous does he begin to creep toward the possibility of doing violence to his wife.
When he sees himself through society’s eyes, as a barbaric interloper, Othello begins to despise himself, and it is that self-hatred that allows him to kill what he loves most.
