This is why Iago, is able to manipulate him so easily. Iago told Roderigo, O,sir, content you. I follow him to serve my turn upon him (I, i lines 38-9).

Potent in its literal sense means powerful. This essay therefore is based on a statement saying that the play is a study into the power of evil. Evil is conveyed in many different ways in Othello, but they all seem to radiate from Iag
