“Latent in every man is a venom of amazing bitterness, a black resentment; something that curses and loathes life, a feeling of being trapped, of having trusted and been fooled, of being the helpless prey of impotent rage, blind surrender, the victim of a savage," Paul Valéry warned. This truism goes to the heart of the character of Othello and informs the tragedy that is to befall him. Othello is a brave and powerful man. He misplaces trust and makes a fatal error.
