Grantham 1 Alicia Grantham English 102­302 Mrs. Woods December 13, 2015 Honest Iago In Shakespeare’s Othello, Shakespeare paints a painful love story of a troubled couple destined for doom. In this story Iago manipulates Othello into doubting his wife’s  faithfulness. Othello falls into Iago’s manipulation so easily due to both Iago’s credible  reputation and the fact that Othello has no real reason not to trust Iago in the first place,  which proves that anyone can be a dishonest person despite their appearance. Iago has built up a powerful and respectable reputation throughout his land. Iago has  become not just Iago but “Honest Iago,” as he is referred to in the play (1.3.284). With a  name like “Honest Iago” who would not trust him. Iago has obviously earned his name  through his acts over the years he has been in the military. Knowing a man with honest as  part of his name makes him pretty believable by most standards especially during this time  period. In this time people often had descriptors such as honest in front of their names as part of their name to help identify who they were. Also, Near the beginning of this play Iago is  described as “A man he is of honesty and trust,” which is who he is believed to be by many  people (1.3.284). Most that know him know him as Honest Iago; Honest being the key word  Grantham 2 that would cause most people to think him an honest man. Othello has known Iago for a  while and Iago has been an honest man to the knowledge of everyone around him. Even  Desdemona comments at one point saying “O, that’s an honest fellow,” talking about Iago  and how he cares about others and wants best for those who deserve happiness (3.3.5).  Furthermore, another way Othello is easily manipulated by Iago is because Othello  has no reason to doubt Iago and his loyalty. Othello has no reason to not trust Iago. Suring  one of the conversations between Othello and Iago, Iago tells Othello “My lord, you know I  love you,” which shows the love and trust that they had together. With this love and trust  there is little to no room for doubt in Iago’s faithfulness. Othello and Iago have known each  other for quite some time. Over time one would think they would get to know each other a  little better, but that comes back to Iago’s honest reputation. Iago has at least pretended to  care about Othello and Desdemona while he has been around them. In one instance Iago  states “I protest, in the sincerity of love and honest kindness,” which Iago directs toward  Cassio as he promises to help Cassio. Iago earned the name honest because he at least  pretended to be honest and truthful and loving to just about everyone which leaves little  room for doubt as to if he is reliable or not. Throughout this play written by Shakespeare, Iago gains the trust of everyone he  knows through his reputation of honesty and acting like he cares about the happiness and  wellbeing of others. Othello had little chance to distrust Iago thanks to his reputation and the  fact that Othello really had no reason to distrust Iago from the beginning. Shakespeare proves Grantham 3 through this play that titles ae not always truthful to a person’s real motives and inner  thoughts.  Works Cited Shakespeare, William. Othello. New York: Fall River Press.,2012. Print.
