When he does not get the position he wants and also heard that Othello has been sleeping with his wife Emilia, Iago’s manipulation increases. Iago plans his scheme based on, “[Othello] has done my office, I know not if’t be true/ But I, for mere suspicion in that kind/ Will do as if for surety” (I. III. 431-433). This use of manipulation is all based on an assumption that Othello has slept with Iago’s wife, and this assumption leads to even more horrible events.
Iago has no proof that desdemona is cheating but because of his persuasive words and honest reputation othello believes him. Iago starts to mess with othello 's thoughts. Soon othello starts thinking and eventually planning his wife 's murder. Othello says to desdemona while trying to strangle her, Out, strumpet weep’st thou for him to my face...it is too late (Shakespeare 5.276-83).
Character can be broken despite how strongly it is shaped. In William Shakespeare’s tragedy, Othello, Othello was a brave Moor who was quick to marry his lover Desdemona. His sinister ensign Iago deceived him into believing his loyal wife had committed adultery. Although Othello believed the alleged accusations, he also gave up his moral character to Iago. Regardless of the lack of trust from Othello, Desdemona did deceive her father prior to the situation.
The embellishment of the daughter’s love by taking advantage of their father through flattery is the basis for the final quote of the play as Edgar remarks about the consequences of lies and manipulation rather than speaking from the heart. Though Regan and Goneril replied to a dramatic degree of which they love their father, Lear interrogated her by exclaiming, “What can you say to draw a third more opulent than your sisters? Speak” (Lear 1.1.87-88). Filled with power, Lear spoke to his daughters in an arrogant tone as he hinted that his inheritance is related to how much love they profess towards him. In response, Cordelia answers of nothing, beginning a string of repetition of the word “nothing” each with various syntax and punctuation to show the tension building between the father and daughter relationship.
Emilia hears Desdemona’s voice, and attempts to come to her aid but the door is locked. After Othello finishes smothering Desdemona, he opens the door to the bed chambers to allow Emilia in.

Emilia seems confused and baffled and begins repeating “My husband”?

Transitioning to Act Three we see a side of Elizabeth that wouldn’t expect which would be dishonesty to save John from his death. Elizabeth being known through Salem for never telling a lie, is asked to tell the truth about John committing adultery so they can both be free. “I came to think he fancied her. And so one night I lost my wits I think, and put out on the highroad,” (1148). From that quote she broke her streak of honesty because she couldn’t tell if John wanted her to tell the truth, so she lied to court about John not being a lecher.
If you are using a persuasion technique, and something bad happens as a result of your persuasion technique, you are primarily responsible for what happened. Iago suggested to Othello that Desdemona was cheating on him which made him paranoid which caused his downfall, he convinced Cassio to get drunk which made him lose his position of lieutenant, he convinced Roderigo to kill Cassio by using Roderigo’s love of Desdemona against him, and Iago riles up Brabantio by using his prejudice to his advantage by telling him that Desdemona married Othello which leaves him with a broken heart which eventually kills him. This is why the events of the play can be attributed to Iago. One reason why the tragedy can be blamed on Iago is due to the fact

Gertrude opened herself to being tricked into falling for Claudius by accepting his many gifts and compliments. Hamlet berated his mother, Gertrude, “A murderer and a villain, a low-life who's not worth a twentieth of a tenth of your first husband” (Act III Scene 4, 97).

Women ruined them: how wonderful if men could love them well, but never believe them!” (130). Ever since Adam & Eve days, females have been seen as femme fatale.

Iago plan to destroy Othello evolves when he notices Desdemona's assertive behavior towards her father. Iago realizes this characteristic because Iago's wife, Emilia, is a cynical character that is similar to Desdemona's assertiveness.
