Deadly Sinner #4 : Iago
In Shakespeare’s play Othello, Iago hated the Moor. Out of hatred, envy and spite he conspired against his master Othello leading to events that ended in tragedy. Inspired also by the green light in The Great Gatsby, I made Iago look out of Venetian windows with jealousy.
Iago’s dialogue in the play is also the first time the term “green eyed monster” appeared as an expression in English. And green has been associated with jealousy ever since.
