Goodnight Desdemona Red Toque

of Desdemona’s Will in Othello Among William Shakespeare’s vast array of deeply flawed characters, Desdemona of Othello stands out as remarkably virtuous and pure of heart.

At the start of the play we see Desdemona as a strong, outspoken and behaves in a way that is outrageous in her society. She has fallen in love with a man of a different race, country, and color; and she is so determined...

Much of the interest in her is owing to the fact that each character in...

Desdemona and Othello

can or can't exist. Judging from the relationship between Desdemona and Othello, through Nicholson’s "Othello" And The Geography Of Persuasion." the play seems to say that marriage based on an innocent romantic love or profane love is bound to fail.

Desdemona The daughter of the Venetian senator Brabantio. Desdemona and Othello are secretly married before the play begins. While in some ways stereotypically pure and meek, Desdemona is also determined and self-possessed. She is equally capable of defending her marriage, jesting bawdily with Iago, and responding with dignity to Othello’s incomprehensible jealousy. Desdemona is a more plausible, well-rounded figure than much criticism has given her credit for. Arguments that see Desdemona as...
