I just wanted some more opinions on a debate I've had with some of my classmates for a while now. Most of them think that Othello deserves some sympathy and that he did not deserve to die like he did as he was being manipulated by Iago.
But I disagree with them and I'd say that he actually got off to lightly because manipulation or not he still decided to kill his wife so he still deserves punishment for that and I don't think that a quick death is a serious enough punishment for what he did and that he should have been made to live with his mistake instead so he could be tortured by guilt and regret for the rest of his life.

So does anyone have any thoughts?
