Subject Matter

The play “Othello” by William Shakespeare is a tragedy of strange beauty and remarkable power. It is a story of love versus duty. There, we see the love Desdemona hasfor Othello’s adventures , Roderigo for Desdemona, Brabartio for Desdemona even Iago’s supposed love that made him tell untrue tales about the young woman, Desdomona.

Theme

There are many themes interwoven to describe the author’s perspective of the play’ Othello’.

Contrast of Doubt versus Trust

One-central theme is the major contrast of doubt versus trust. For whatever reason, Othello’s trust for Desdemona was too weak to resist Iago’s accusations against her. In the contrary, Desdemona loves Othello unconditionally and wholeheartedly. She consecrates herself to him entirely. Unfortunately Iago’s counterfeit love provides him with power which Desdemona’s love could not counteract. As a result of this, true love is dismantled.

Jealousy

Othello kills his wife as a result of jealousy because he believes his wife is having a love affair with Cassio. Iago also is guilty of this when he is jealous that Casio has received promotion instead of him.
