In Othello, we learn a great deal about Iago from his soliloquies (when he is alone and speaks to himself or to the audience). In this paper you will:
1) Introduce Iago’s character and form a thesis that relates to Iago’s overall understanding of himself and his actions,
2) Select and discuss three DIFFERENT soliloquies (in different scenes from the play), and discuss what they tell the audience about Iago, and
3) Support your thesis throughout your paper with references to particular scenes and lines from the play and your scholarly resources.
4) Also include three (3) well-developed body paragraphs (3 body paragraphs, one for each soliloquy) each of which should introduce and analyze one of the three chosen soliloquies.
5) Discuss what the audience learns about Iago from his soliloquey and how it relates to Iago’s overall understanding of himself and his actions. Incorporate direct quotes/lines from the play to support your point (with parenthetical in-text citations). Incorporate direct quotes/lines from the scholarly source(s) to support your point (with parenthetical in-text citations).
6) End your paper with a Conclusion paragraph which wraps up the discussion and ties it all together, examines the ‘bigger’ picture or contextualizes the discussion in broader terms.
7) The paper should be at least 5 paragraphs/two-pages with a conclusion paragraph.
