Segars 1Savannah SegarsMrs. LawsEnglish 1024 May 2015Othello: Downfall by JealousyThe Tragedy of Othello written by William Shakespeare houses a most prevalent aspect of jealousy throughout the play. Jealousy is more than a feeling; it is a poison thatspreads from Othello's heart to his head. This is evident in an aside by Iago in Act 3, Scene 3 that states:I’ll leave this handkerchief at Cassio’s house and let him find it. To a jealous man, a meaningless little thing like this looks like absolute proof. This handkerchief may be useful to me. The Moor’s mind has already become infected with my poisonous suggestions. Ideas can be like poisons. At first they hardly even taste bad, but once they get into your blood they start burning like hot lava (Shakespeare 157).In Othello's case, it affects not only his relationship with Desdemona, but every part of him. Othello's family, mental status and career are all ruined because of this little green monster.
