Prose vs. Verse. Shakespeare intermingles verse and prose frequently in Othello. In a general sense, Shakespeare uses prose as an expression of debasement, as in the cases of Cassio’s drunkenness (Act II, scene iii), the Clown’s bawdiness (Act III, scene i), and Othello’s rage (Act IV, scene i).

Shakespeare drew from two main sources in composing Othello, with one contributing the play’s story and the other contributing to the characterization of story of Shakespeare’s Othello comes from the Hecatommithi, a collection of tales published in by Giraldi o in turn had been influenced by the Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio.

Verse And Prose. Othello, like Shakespeare's other plays, is written in a combination of verse (poetry) and prose (how we talk every day).(Note: The play Richard II is the one exception to this rule—it's the only Shakespeare play written entirely in verse.).

Verse. Reading Othello often feels like reading a lengthy poem, and that's because Shakespeare's characters often speak in verse.

A ship is seen to enter into the docks, and this is when Desdemona, Iago, Roderigo and, a new character, Emilia. Emilia is Iago’s wife, so of course, she followed him to Cyprus. Desdemona asks after Othello, but Othello is yet to arrive. Shakespeare represents the image of women in this scene through Iago’s character, and he speaks in prose.

Shakespeare’s Othello unfortunately remains a little too relevant for a modern audience. It explores the tragedies and atrocities that exists in society, many aspects unfortunately still relevant.

Above all else, this Othello character analysis reveals that Shakespeare's Othello has gravitas. A celebrated soldier and trusted leader whose race both defines him “The Moor” and defies his lofty position; it would be rare for a man of race to have such a Author: Lee Jamieson.

The most prominent form of prejudice on display in Othello is racial prejudice. In the very first scene, Roderigo and Iago disparage Othello in explicitly racial terms, calling him, among other things, "Barbary horse" and "thick lips." In nearly every case, the prejudiced characters use terms that describe Othello as an animal or beast.

Shakespeare presents this fact in the dialogue and also in the staging of the play: Othello's is a black face among a sea of white faces, and he is constantly referred to as "The Moor," a representative African, while others go by their personal names and are seen as independent individuals.

Madness emerges as mental instability and delusions and is exceedingly evident as one of Shakespeare’s ideas of obsession in “Othello”.

This idea is evident through Shakespeare’s use of characterization, particularly with the character, Othello, as he is captivated by jealousy and revenge as a result of obsessive love. Of Othello, he argues that it was "not only the most masterly of the tragedies in point of construction, but its method of construction is unusual.

And this method, by which the conflict begins late, and advances without appreciable pause and with accelerating speed to the catastrophe, is a main cause of the painful tension" ().

In Othello Iago makes remarkable use of prose and verse as he manipulates those around him. Whether wishing to be seen as a respectable advisor, humble servant, or a common solider Iago is a master chameleon of speech.
