The Women of Shakespeares Othello :: GCSE English Literature Coursework
The Wo custody of Othello           The women of Shakespeares Othello are put into stereotypical roles, but fanny peoples backs present much stronger types. Desdemona, goes against her fathers orders and marries a moor. Bianca clearedly darts part in Desdemonas death. genus Emilia has an opportunity to save Desdemona but sneakingly stay silent. These women are connatural because they are treated like they are lower then the men in their days. But they do not let that hold them back. These women take part in anything that pleases them. In no way would they let men tell them what to do Desdemona was the daughter of the Venetian Senator Brabantio. Against her fathers wishes, she marries a moor, Othello. The marriage instructms to be monstrous- in the sense that it represents a deviation from that which is natural. How else, Brabantio asks, would Desdemona, so carefully, have brought such scandal upon herself and her father by shunning, the wealthy curled darlings of our nation(Act 1 photo 2 Line 68). Desdemona arrives and gently resolves the dispute by acknowledging divulge loyalties to her father and to her new husband, but making it clear that she now belongs to Othello. For the play being set in the late sixteenth century, Desdemonas refutal of her actions is outstandingly forthright, spirited, and courageous. She was aware of the great risk involved when she married a moor. She says She trunk bound to her noble father for her life and education he remains her lord of duty, and she will always honor him as such. Now however, she has a husband, and she must recognize her duties to him just as her mother did to Brabantio(Act 1 Scene 3 Line 181). Desdemona is a well-born and well educated daughter of a Venetian senator. She has been trained to adapt herself easily to any social situation. You could see how she is headstrong in her choice of a husband and in her defense of him. Desdemonas generous nature trie s to help Cassio receive his spot as Liutenant back. This is when her forgivingness falls for weakness. Using Desdemona and her natural goodness, Iago will turn her virtue into pitch, and fabricate the net that shall enmesh them all(Act2 Scene 3 Line 366). It is Desdemonas innocent attempt to reconcile Othello with Cassio that gives Iago the opportunity to wreak vengeance upon Othello, causing the absent and suicide, which bring this tragedy to its violent conclusion.
