Scene three is considered the ‘temptation scene’ - First scene clarifies what Iago’s intentions are with Cassio and how it will affect Othello - Othello talking to the guard about feeling that he is distracted - ‘chaos has come again’; before he loved Desdemona, Othello’s life was leading him astray - faith; things do not just happen, things do not just disappear - a good reputation is still a very prominent ideal for the characters to have - cuckold: a man when his wife has an affair with another man - Iago has completely severed the relationship between Othello and Cassio, but has yet to sever the relationship between Desdemona and Othello - Iago ‘suggests’ that Cassio should not get his job back any time soon because he has enough to deal with in his problems of being an alcoholic - Desdemona is an object that people are fighting over; animalistic sense in the way that she is only seen for her physicality - Othello’s soliloquy confirms his belief that Desdemona is having an affair; refers to her as a thing to be used Temptation Scene - Uses seduction; gets the victim to see the world through the eyes of the seducer - Iago seduces Othello and gets him to see through his eyes -

    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.
