This paper introduces, discusses, and analyzes the play, "Othello", by William Shakespeare. It contains a major and minor character analysis and looks at how Othello and Desdemona are intertwined in the play. It discusses how the tragic fall of Othello could not occur without Desdemona's ultimate betrayal.

From the Paper:

"The major character of Othello in the play "Othello" is a tragic hero who allows himself to be manipulated by those around him, especially Iago and Desdemona. Othello is an interesting character, in that he is a "moor," or a black man in a largely white world, who indeed marries a white woman. He is a strong leader, who is given command over Cyprus, and is generally accepted by those around him, as this passage shows, "And, noble signior, If virtue no delighted beauty lack, Your son-in-law is far more fair than black" (Shakespeare Act I, scene iii)."
