From the Paper:

"Perhaps the most interesting and exotic character in the tragic play "Othello," by William Shakespeare, is "Honest" Iago. "Iago in external appearance or in his characteristic traits, he is the man who deceived and betrayed Desdemona, Cassio, and Othello" (White 203). Through some carefully thought-out words and actions, Iago is able to manipulate others to do things in a way that benefits him and moves him closer toward his goals. "
