Iago: She is free to give away the handkerchief anyone once it is hers. Othello holds his head in agony and becomes upset. Iago: Cassio has confessed to me already. Othello falls to the floor and starts to shake while mumbling to himself while Iago looks on in satisfaction. After a moment pokes him to try and bring him back to reality. Iago: How are you feeling? Othello: Are you making fun of me? Iago shakes his head and pretends to hold in laughter. Iago: Just keep in mind that you are not the first man to be cheated on by his wife. At least you are aware of it. Othello: I am out for revenge. Othello leaves Iago speaking out loud I shall use Bianca . Cassio likes her and when speaking Cassio’s smiles and thoughts of Bianca will be misinterpreted as thought of Desdemona in Othello’s jealous eyes. Iago greets Cassio To Cassio: Keep talking to Desdemona and you might regain your position in the labor union. But if Bianca was the one in power your job would be yours quite quickly. Cassio laughs at that comment and shakes his head. Othello watching from the distance cannot hear the words of the conversation and assumes that Iago and Cassio are discussing Desdemona. Othello makes angry faces and stamps his foot, etc. Iago : I’ve never known a woman that loved one so much. Cassio continues to laugh and shake his head.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
