Othello on Trial

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

"Ladies & Gentlemen of the jury I shall be brief, but I would like to use my remaining time with you to remind you that this case is not a simple one, it is not as simple as black & white. 'Honest Iago' this means a great deal. A judge may be honest but people do not refer to him as 'honest judge', Iago must have been a great man and the one thing that destroyed this great man may sound small but deep in every mans heart it is everything, reputation. ...read more.

Middle

In this land reputation is everything to a man. Othello took everything away from Iago in this way. He gave the job of his Lieutenant to Cassio, a man who had never seen or experienced war in his life, intead of his long fighting friend who was so close to Iago they might have been brothers. How would you react to this, and I cant stress enough what reputation was to Iago. This great general couldn't have possibly been na�ve enough to not realise this, and this is what Iago saw and he reacted in the only way that he knew from his years of war and in this low depression. ...read more.

Conclusion

A monster developed by Othello with no mind of his own except that of revenge. Ladies & Gentlemen I put this to you as I know that only this explains how a man great enough to gain the title 'Honest Iago' could be changed into such a miss understood man. One thing I don't understand though is how the great general Othello 'could' have been na�ve to the extent of destroying his best friend. Iago deep down, as every one knows is a good man who has been destroyed by no fault of his own, this is no grounds for killing a man. Iago needs help not punishment. ...read more.
