Othello was a black man with strong body and powerful voice as a commander with self confidence. That is why Desdemona chose him because of his high spirituality and fluency to depict his experiences of life (Lukacs 2). Apart from Othello’s powerful personality, he was a jealous man who had an interracial marriage and destroyed himself by his negative attitude that closed his mind.The second main character with negative impact is Iago, a veteran officer who helped and undoes Othello, eventually prospering when he set Desdemona’s handkerchief in Cassio’s room. Iago’s target was to convince Othello that Desdemona was unfaithful to him (Shakespeare 721). As a result, Othello smothered Desdemona with a pillow because of jealousy; while Iago’s wife, Emilia, exposed that everything was a plan from Iago (Shakespeare 759). Iago realized that his wife would disclose the truth, so he killed Emilia also; on the other hand, Othello killed himself after knowing the truth with deep sorrow. At the end, it can be supposed that Iago was taken off to be tormented and executed (Shakespeare 761).
