Othello is regarded as a most popular play of a Shakespeare. But, for me it was hard to read. Like “The Winter’s Tale”, I was expecting some touch of joy and happiness. But, here, Shakespeare has woven a tragedy.
“Jealousy” is the most prominent theme of the play and as its dire consequences, the protagonist, Othello not only destroys his own life but also takes the life of his beloved wife.In fact, it is a most common factor which disrupts human relationships and the jealousy among siblings tops the list.
I think, jealousy is the most common factor which disrupts human relationships and the jealousy among siblings tops the list.
I have experienced that I feel envious of my sister when she gets better things. I feel jealous of her when my mother gives her more attention and this stands true for all of us.
Have you ever observed a jealous person? Their lives are a mess. The jealousy factor ruins their happiness. They won’t see anything good in their lives. The very factor makes them restless and their faces depict their feelings.
But, all of us like to appear good and charming. Once, I was reading that mirrors best describe our personality. So, why not devise a way to get rid of this monster?
So, next time when you find yourself in a similar situation, stand in front of a mirror and look at your facial expressions.
Ask yourself, am I looking good?
And, the negative response will force you to get rid of jealousy in your lives.
Have you read this play by Shakespeare? How you perceive the negative aspect of jealousy in life?
