Shakespeare derived Othello - a story from Giraldi Cinthio's Hecatommithi. Along with Hamlet, King Lear, and Macbeth, Othello is one of Shakespeare's four great tragedies and thus a pillar of what most critics take to be the apex of Shakespeare's dramatic art. More than anything else, what distinguishes Othello from its great tragedies peers is the role of its villain, Iago.
While the usurper King Claudius of Hamlet, the faithless daughters of Lear, and the unnatural villains of Macbeth Macbeth, his Lady and the Weird Sister witches are all impressively evil in their own way, none of them enjoys the same diabolical role as Iago. Iago is a character who essentially writes the play's main plot, takes a key part in it, and gives first - hand direction to the others, most notably to the noble Moor, Othello.
The play presents us with two remarkable characters, Iago and his victim, with Iago as the dominant force which causes Othello to see the infidelity of his young and beautiful wife, Desdemona, with his favorite lieutenant, Michael Cassio. Indeed, not only is 'seeing' and the gap between appearance and reality a central theme of the play, it overlaps with other major thematic strands trust, honor, and reputation and sheds light on still others, including the theme of patriarchy and the political state.

This military grossness and unskilfulness in all the softer arts, does not suit very well with the gaieties of his youth, with the general knowledge ascribed to him at his accession, or with the contemptuous message sent him by the Dauphin, who represents him as fitter for the ball room than the field, and tells him that he is not to revel into duchies, or win provinces with a nimble galliard. For example, in his Oxford Shakespeare edition of the play, Roger Warren refers to the fiend as Asmodeus on the basis that Asmodeus is an evil spirit in the Book of Tobit , and Asmath is a misreading of the abbreviation Asmode.
