Themes are not in the text. The audience put meaning into the text, making connections between the events in the text and the events in the world around us.
2 main themes:
- Jealousy – Othello’s fatal flaw
- ‘beware the green eyed monster’
- Jealously can destroy individuals and the people they interact with
- Knowing who your true enemy is
- The enemy within vs the enemy without
- Deception, lying, trust
