Nature, which is the unchanging natural principle of the world and the preserving cause of all things,1 needs order. In the tragedies of "Hamlet," "Macbeth," and "Othello," Shakespeare created worlds that were turbulently disturbed by tainted causes and needed restoration. Because of a disruption in the universal order, there were serious consequences for those who meddled with the natural course of things and those caught in the crossfire. Ironically, tragedy became the sufficient catalyst in bringing harmony back. In "Macbeth," Macbeth says, "It will have blood, they say; blood will have blood." Macbeth meant nature would only have its balance back if nature took the life of the one who unnaturally caused the death of another. As a result, many lives were tragically lost. However, deaths are relatively insignificant to the importance of nature's stability in the end. Through these tragedies, Shakespeare reveals how the world's natural order will prevail even when a person's choices bring chaos and destruction. .
Othello and Desdemona's marriage started off strong. The two brazenly defended their love despite Venice's racist setting, and Desdemona's hot-tempered father Brabantio. It would seem that nature was also on their side. A storm left many dead during the journey to Cyprus by ship but nature cooperated in the general movement with a storm that dispersed, while preserving the favored lovers.2 It would seem that Othello's marriage to Desdemona had a successful future, but disarray initiated by Iago would bring that all to a sudden end. .
Othello and Desdemona's reasons for marriage were highly irregular and therefore weak and unable to endure Iago's evil schemes. "She loved me for the dangers I had passed, and I loved her that she did pity them." Desdemona fulfilled a place in Othello's view of himself.3 She merely served as the only trophy Othello had not won before then. As a military man, Othello was characteristically very ambitious.
