Character Role Analysis

Othello

Othello is the tragic protagonist of the story. The play revolves around Othello's corruption by Iago and his descent into a dangerous jealousy. What's interesting is that we spend more time with the villain than the protagonist, one of the more unique qualities of Othello. But even though he spends a bit of time off-stage, the plot is still centered on Othello, and more importantly, the destruction of Othello.
