Leticia Servant to Desdemona and Othello.

Extracts from this document...


Leticia Servant to Desdemona and Othello. There was great excitement in the household and among the servants when Othello brought his bride home. Othello was a distinguished and capable soldier. He was admired by the people in the senate for his skills as a warrior, but was seen as an outsider and would not have gained acceptance as a person had he not been irreplaceable as a soldier. Desdemona managed to see beyond the armor to the heart of Othello. The love they had for each other was pure.

I guess this story tells us of the weaknesses of the human heart; how anything but complete trust in each other can destroy a relationship. Failing to confide in Desdemona, Othello allowed Iago to poison his mind and ultimately lead him to murdering his wife. This fairy tale was about Desdemona the sweet, innocent, white princess, and Othello, the admirable distinguished black prince, both but mere dolls in Iago's ploy. ...read more.
