In recent days our most respected and famous Othello has passed away. The cause of his death was due to his self inflicted stab wounds, a medical examiner later said he died due to blood loss. Our dear honoured Othello lived an interesting life, and passed many battles, sieges and fortunes, and the things he saw and experienced in his life time are the most indescribable. When he was young he was taken by the enemy and sold into a life of slavery but he managed to escape, explore the world and become a person in his own right, moving back to Venice and joining the military.
You could say Othello was a successful since the day he joined the Venetian military, and the beliefs in honour he carried contributed to the respect he was shown. He was eventually made a significant figure in our national army and his quick thinking, ability to make difficult decisions, and success in battle, made him quite a hero.
His mind was always focused on work and this gave his military subordinates faith in him and they fought till the death for him. It has been said that the undoing of the once great Othello and finally ending in his suicide is due to Iago, his trusted companion, and friend in battle.
It has been said that Iago twisted words, bent the truth and planted false evidence so that Othello would think his fair wife, Desdemona, which he killed slightly before committing suicide, had been having an affair, with Lieutenant Cassio.
A source said that some of Othello’s last words were ‘one that loved not wisely, but too well’ showing how he love he had for his wife and how that drove him to this tragic end. Undoubtedly Othello will be considered a hero in Venice, and one the greatest men to fight for this nation of all times.
His legacy will not be of his final days and the man he became in them, but it will be for his life, for his honour, for his intelligence, for his bravery, for his love, for his heroic nature, for his loyalty and for him.
