Iago: "Motiveless malignity" or diabolic intellectual
MetadataShow full item record
“Evil has nowhere else been portrayed with such mastery as in the character of Iago” (Bradley, 1951, p. 206). Even a casual reading, or viewing, of Shakespeare’s plays will show that Iago is indeed Shakespeare’s most evil character. How realistic is such a portrayal? Can such a being exist in the “real” world?
