    Summary

    "...Why, my dear husband...I am glad to think that in your eyes, I am a woman of more beauty than a goddess. But I pray tell, which goddess might you mean? Lovely Aphrodite?" Emilia flashed a coy smile into the looking glass and silently praised herself, in pleasurable guilt, for the alluring tones she had managed to achieve in her voice. "Ay, you flatter me much."

    The story of Othello and Desdemona is one of passion burning too strong-- of idle thoughts twisting into suspicions wild and imaginations raging with jealousy and fervent desire to be taken at one's chaste word. The story of Emilia and Iago is a quieter tale, of sinister machinations and a shared madness that sinks its thorny claws in deep and drags hapless souls together into a mire that is either love, or insanity, or hatred...or everything of nothing first created.

    Summary

    '...But perchance it was not that at all. No, perhaps it was his eyes, his deeply shadowed, astonishingly pale eyes, that touched the place within her where no one had dared venture before, for fear of the diabolism that lay therein. Like chips of January ice, cutting and raw, they snapped up to meet her own too suddenly for comfort, narrowing briefly into invisibility before widening once more, baring to her unexpectedly ravenous soul a stunning acuity and choking, yet liberating fire. O, that fire, that bright and baleful gleam! It was one she knew well, too well: one she saw reflected within herself every moment. It was a fire of ambition: ruthless ambition, and passion, and an inherent danger that set some girlishly ignominious part of her soul, that she had thought lay dormant in her aspish breast, to blazing, alight with the searing black glow of glorious villainy....'

    Summary

    Othello truly is a story about jealousy, but seeing it only as that is binding. Othello should be seen as a play with many smaller themes factoring in, but the most prominent theme: Love.
