A classic villain

By Debra Dobbins





Iago is one of William Shakespeare’s most conniving villains. He is the antagonist in Shakespeare’s drama, Othello.

An antagonist, according to Wikipedia, is a “character, group of characters, or institution, that represents the opposition against which the protagonist must contend.”
