Marriage theme in Shakespeare's Othello.

Storyboard Text

  • Theme
  • In order to have a successful marriage there has to be communication
  • Example and Explanation
  • One of Shakespeare's theme in Othello is the topic of marriage. Iago and Emilia's marriage is highly questionable. How they ended up together, I can't fathom. They both have negative views about each other genders. They even have negative things to say about each other. For example, he claims she talks a lot and is only good for pleasure. In the text Iago says, “Sir, would she give you so much of her lips” (II.i.112). Act III.iii Lines 364-366 suggest that Emilia's character is very devoted to her husband, and will do anything for him even without knowing his intentions. This is a perfect example of their lack of communication. He could very well be planning to kill a man(Cassio), and she will be willing to go the extra mile for him, but he wouldn't do the same for her.
