While Desdemona is pearl white and represents purity, innocence, beauty and virginity, Othello is considered uncultured, primitive, fear, anger and inferiority. These motifs are used profusely by Iago and other character like Brabantio, Rodrigo etc. In other instance and quite unconventionally, Shakespeare represents evil Iago with white ethnicity and virtuous Othello with black skin and Moorish ethnicity. 1 Login to Reply Share Share Share on WhatsApp Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Select as best answer Sorry, you do not have a permission to answer to this question.
