The range of options, evident at each of the signal moments when Othello emphasizes his identity as Moor, is not only crucial but, in fact, distinctive. For importantly, not all parts of the play--and, I would argue, any Renaissance play--are equally open. If Robert Weimann is right, the Renaissance stage was still partially defined by the medieval divisions of and acting spaces, characters and styles, with the harbouring the dramatic illusion, its characters and action creating a reality that absorbs us and them, and the constituted by stock figures, who, in contrast, break the frame of that illusion and undermine its truth.35 Though, as Weimann suggests, the lines between the and were becoming increasingly faint by Shakespeare's time, we still see in Shakespeare a substantial difference between the more predictable characters such as Iago, who emerges, like the related Vice, from a tradition and who is, at base, a stock type, and less predictable characters such as Hamlet who would, if they could, be real.36 There is notable room for movement, for the surprising inscription of subjectivity, within the more conventional, parts, as I've argued elsewhere.37 At the same time, however, these roles are significantly more fixed than parts, even in the case of characters such as Iago, whose motives and sexualities will always elude our grasp. Iago may never be what he is, but his unreadability is, to a significant degree, a readable part of the package of malignancy he, from his first step on stage, comes in with--an expected, if not conventional, sign that he is unquestionably, because motivelessly, evil.38

At one level this reversal is predicated on Othello's acceptance of the racist logic of the travel discourse within which he narrates his life story. In these terms the tragedy of can be explained away, can be made exceptional, by displacing Otherness, and its tragic effects, on to Othello. Such a move, however, fails to acknowledge the extent to which Othello's subjectivity is not exceptional but in its essential qualities entirely normal. The fact that Othello's sense of self is based on a narrated journey that circles around a core of Otherness is a reflection of its normality. Judith Butler comments that:
Topic 71: Up, Up, and Away — The Ling Space
Butler's argument here is that subjectivity is always based on the mediation between selfhood and discourse, between one's sense of self and the social collective matter, language, it is constructed from. Being a subject means using social tools to make, indeed to fill out, one's individual selfhood. The temptation that Shakespeare offers us in is to see the eponymous hero's sense of self, its basis in a narration around Otherness, as exceptional or alien. This is despite the fact that Shakespeare also represents Othello as typical, not only in relation to his sense of self, but also in terms of the play's audience. Famously Iago describes Othello as having "a free and open nature", and predicts that he "will as tenderly be led by the nose ... As asses are" (Act I, Sc 3, L 397-400). Othello's desire to belong, to be part of Venetian society, is based upon an awareness of the precariousness of his social identity in Venice. Othello knows that at one level his sense of self is grounded on an irreducible Otherness. It is this which fuels his desire to belong, his desperate need for certainty, to see the truth, and which makes him so easy to seduce. In all this Othello can be seen as representing the audience. His desire to belong, like the audience's, takes precedence over his reason so that in the end he is prepared to sacrifice everything in order to sustain the explanatory racist and sexist narrative Iago has constructed for him.
