he wants and it causes him to plan a tragic plan. Othello has suppossed affair

to Emilia who is Lago's wife. Thus, Lago constructs a plan to revenge. Stanley

part of partly him, but she does not give him any money. The most important one,

he "assume" that Blanche describes him as "common" and bestial. Thus, he plots

a plan to revenge. In all, both Lago and Stanley start tragic plan their hatred.

Lago is absolutely inhuman while Stanley has little consciences in his

heart. In order to achieve the target, Iago does everythings that will benefits

himself even killing other's. He kills Roderigo who helps him a lot in his paln.

He persuade Othello to kill his Desdemona. Furthermore he kills his wife at the

end. Stanley has not yet totally lost his humanity. Although he has raped

Branche, he does not kill her or other people. Moreover, at the end of the play

he settles her into a asylum, but he does not just forsakes her. This reveals

that someone will look after her in the future, and she will not be living alone.

absolutely inhuman, these two villains have a different level at different


As the villians in their plays, Iago and Stanley are both brilliant, but

Iago's tragic plan is almost perfect. He is able to use other Charater's "flaw"

in his well constructed plan. The smartest thing he does is that able to hide

his identify from others. He appears to be "noble" to others, but in fact, he is

evil "nderworth". Thus, he can gain other characters's trust. For Stanley, his

plan is not as well constructed as Lago " ". Actually, his plan is quite

straight forward. He just find out the train and tell it to Stella and Mitch.

Stanley is an impetuous person, it can be showed by the action that be "thorus"

the radio out in the poker night(detail explain). This is his weakness. He make

fault in his plan by this, so he cannot as smart as Lago.

Lago and Stanley are both the master in their plays, they can control

every other characters. Iago can control Others because he is able to gain trust

form other characters. He seems loyal in front of everyone so he can easily

control others. Stanley is the " " among his friends. He is the leader of the

bowling team and the "plant". Thus, he can control his friends. Also he can

"control" Stella and Blanche because man is alwys the King. There is no doubt

that Lagoo are Stanley are the master in the play.

Lago and Stanley are both an evil person, they both start their tragic

scheme by their hatred. Lago is seemed to be much smarter than Stanley, but

ironically, Iago cannot completely finish his trgic plan while Stanley can.

Furthermore, Iago ends up with death. Anyway, they both cannot use their

brilliant on the good side: otherwise the world will be more beautiful.
