A resource to introduce the persuasive and manipulative talents of Iago. Explores how Iago uses elements of Aristotle's modes of persuasion within his conversation with Roderigo, with a focus on ethos, logos and pathos. This approach helps students understand the intellectual capabilities of Shakespeare's villain at the very start of the play so they can build upon this as they work through the text. Suitable for challenging students.
