In this piece of course work I was told to look in depth at scene III of the play Othello I will begin by telling you the outline of the scene then a closer look in to the scene Desdemona decides that she wants to advocate for Cassio She tells Emilia so and that she believes Cassio is a good person and has been wronged in this case she pledges to do everything she can to persuade her husband to take Cassio back Cassio speaks with her briefly but leaves just as Othello enters because he does not wish for a confrontation Iago seizes on this opportunity to play on Othellos insecurities and make Cassios exit seem guilty and incriminating Othello then speaks to Desdemona and Desdemona expresses her concern for Cassio she is persistent in his suit which Othello is not too pleased about Othello says he will humour her and the subject is dropped for a while Iago then plays on Othellos insecurities about Desdemona and gets Othello to believe through insinuation that there is something going on between Desdemona and Cassio Othello seizes on this and then Iago works at building up his suspicions Soon Othello begins to doubt his wife as Iago lets his insinuations gain the force of an accusation against her Othello begins to voice his insecurities when it comes to Desdemona and himself as well Desdemona enters and they have a brief conversation Othello admits that he is troubled though he will not state the cause Desdemona drops the handkerchief that Othello gave her on their honeymoon Emilia knew that her husband had wanted it for something so she doesnt feel too guilty about taking it Emilia gives it to Iago who decides to use the handkerchief for his own devices Othello re-enters and tells Iago that he now doubts his wife Othello demands ocular proof of Desdemonas dishonesty so Iago sets about making stories
