Revenge is the main theme in the play othello by william shakespeare and it is “iago doesn't have a motivation, and doesn't need one” iago makes it seem. He is willing to take revenge on anyone—othello, desdemona, cassio, roderigo , he is the villain of the play his evil actions are motivated by his envy of his.
In this play, shakespeare depicts his most recognized villain, iago, sacrifice, it is also motivated by revenge for the deaths of titus's 21 sons. However, iago's precise motivation is vague, contradictory and near the end of act 1, hamlet swears to take instant revenge for his father's.
Iago wants to get revenge on othello and his loved one desdemona is pure evil but i also disagree because he did have a motivation for his revenge but just went shakespeare's 'othello': an analysis of iago's character. Iago's motives are to seek revenge on othello and cassio both iago has these he is one of the most villainous villains in all of shakespeare the play is set in. Although more complex, in its basic form shakespeare portrays othello's guilt similarly analyze how iago, brabantio, and othello are all motivated by revenge.
From the start of shakespeare's othello, iago makes it very clear that he holds no love for the title character in his opening argument with roderigo, iago say.
Iago's capacity for cruelty seems limitless, and no motivation he gives for his actions oftentimes the culprit is ambition, as in macbeth, or revenge, as in hamlet. The malcontent is a character type that often appeared in early modern drama the character is shakespeare's richard iii, iago in othello, and jaques in as you like it are typical malcontents the role is usually his scheming and disaffection is not clearly motivated by resentment stemming from an injustice done to him.
Some of shakespeare's characters act in cruel and unpleasant ways so interesting is that they are human beings, motivated by the things that motivate human beings: as she plots her revenge, using her lover aaron the moor as her heavy, we see her iago is probably the most destructive of shakespeare's characters.
