For the first time in his life, love is the strongest emotion. For example, when telling about how he won Desdemona’s love, Othello tells it exactly how it happened.
Othello has total confidence in himself and others.
Then Othello, Desdemona, Iago, Cassio and Roderigo travel to Cyprus as there is threatened invasion.
Just before they travel to Cyprus Iago exclaims he wants to seek revenge on Othello as the promotion to lieutenant given to Cassio.
Iago decides to exploit the relationship between Othello and Desdemona.
He does this by manipulating Othello into believing that Desdemona is having an affair with Cassio.In conclusion Shakespeare uses a variety of techniques to present the development of Othello's character in the play Othello.In particular the dramatic devices those that are visual and the use of language that chart the downfall of Othello's character from a respected general to a rambling jealous murderer who commits suicide are most effective.Othello makes his murderous intentions known "Get me some poison Iago" This is a metaphor, jealousy is a poison.Othello says of Desdemona "Let her rot, perish" Regarding his jealousy "As if there is some monster in his thoughts too hideous to be shown" This has the effect of making the audience think of danger, evil and violence. Conclusion It is the visual, physical proof of Desdemona's infidelity for Othello, but obviously not to the audience who know the truth.The handkerchief is the dramatic device that causes Desdemona to be seen as guilty and untruthful in Othello's mind.The moor's reaction to the handkerchief falling into a trance is a good dramatic device both visually on stage and in displaying the contrast between Othello at the start of the play and Othello now.He has his priorities straight and does not let anything upset him.Although Othello’s character seems to be indestructible, he experiences a major downfall.Its sudden onset would undoubtedly shock the audience.The General's incoherent would also be disturbing, indicating his change in character to the audience to someone who is jealous, insecure, unconfident, unsure and manipulated.
