Topic: Compare and contrast the characters of Iago and Othello. Consider how they are similar and/or different. Even though both of these men are murderers, do you believe that Iago and Othello are different types of characters?

Do you pity either of these characters or see them as tragic figures? Carefully examine the development of these two characters throughout the course of the play.
