Abstract

Literature as a result of human creativity loads with values, both the beauty values for recreation and moral values for education. Literature can make the readers know how to behave, speak, feel and think, because what drawn in literature is the representation of real life. By learning literary works, especially drama, the readers do not only get an enjoyment, but also they can get many valuable knowledge and experiences in case of forming their “character building” especially for the students. Realized or not, the readers will be influenced by values, moral messages, and positive behaviors that are embodied in drama. This study focused on Othello’s jealousy as the cause of the tragedies in William Shakespeare’s drama “Othello”. The problems were: (1) what are the kinds of Othello’s jealousy in William Shakespeare’s drama “Othello”, (2) what are the causes of Othello’s jealousy in William Shakespeare’s drama “Othello”, and (3) what are the effects of Othello’s jealousy in William Shakespeare’s drama “Othello”. This study applied descriptive qualitative design to interpret and describe the problems observed and because there was no treatment as found in experimental research. This study used objective approach because it just analyzed the drama itself without studying the author’s life. The object of this study was William Shakespeare’s drama “Othello” which focused on the kinds, the causes, and the effects of Othello’s jealousy. The data were collected from the dialogue of Othello as the main source in this study because Othello has a big contribution in leading the tragedies. Based on the research finding, there are three kinds of Othello’s jealousy. They are possessive jealousy, competition jealousy, and fear jealousy. Then, there are five causes of Othello’s jealousy. They are fear of loss, inadequacy, fear of feeling, delusions, and obsessions. Furthermore, the effects of Othello’s jealousy seriously caused a tragedy with the death of his wife and himself. However, there are three effects of the protagonistÂ’s jealousy. They are behavior changes, perceived threat, and violence that finally caused the death of his wife and himself which led to the cause of the tragedies in the story.
