One night, Othello finds Desdemona asleep in bed. He wakes her, and informs her she is about to die. Desdemona begs for mercy; however, she cannot appease Othello, and smothers her. After much chaos, Othello is arrested and finally becomes aware of his mistakes. Othello immediately feels remorse for what he has done, which could have been prevented if he would have thought for himself.
She was loyal to Othello even after he committed murder to her, which is utterly against the moral values . When Emilia ask Desdemona about the cause of her death, she replied with “Nobody. I did it myself. Farewell! Greet my husband for me.
Desdemona asks Emilia if women who cheat on their husbands actually exist. When Emilia replies that she would consider doing it if she got enough out of it, Desdemona says, “I do not think there is any such woman” (4.3.83). Despite the evidence right in front of Desdemona that people are willing to have affairs, she still holds her belief that no one would ever do such a thing. Desdemona tells Iago and Emilia that, “Unkindness may do much, / and his unkindness may defeat my live, / but never taint my love” (4.2.159-61). She even admits that she may end up dead, but that it won’t affect her love and trust in Othello.
Iago kills Emilia once she realized how Iago manipulated her. Othello then kills himself when he realized that Iago set this all up and that there was not actually an affair. Othello ended up killing Desdemona for no reason because he let jealousy get ahead of
In Othello, Shakespeare uses manipulation to show how it has the power to change your perspective of the people you trust the most. Manipulation can ruin your perspective of someone, even who you are closest to. In the play, Iago feeds Othello lies about his wife Desdemona. Iago’s false words enraged Othello and Othello begins to think poorly of his innocent wife. Othello angrily turns to Iago and yells “ O, devil, devil!” (IIII.i.273) in frustration with his loyal bride.
This respect for her character manifests itself when she witnesses in front of the duke. He makes a point of hearing Desdemona’s testament. “What would you, Desdemona?” (I.iii. 247). Iago’s cruel claims about Othello’s “witchcraft” are invalidated by Desdemona’s testament; her word is trusted over his.
Emilia knows that Othello believes that Desdemona has cheated on him with Cassio, but the interesting factor is that Emilia knows that is not true as she arguably knows Desdemona the most out of all the characters. Desdemona's isolation prior to her death is “ attributable to the onlookers' nonintervention” (Vanita 343). Emilia was aware of the abuse that Othello put upon Desdemona even though she knew the accusations against her were false “For if she be not honest, chaste and true,/ There’s no man happy; the purest of their wives/ Is foul slander” (Shakespeare 4.2.18-20) but still leaves Desdemona in isolation with Othello, even though she was aware of what he believed. When Othello confronts Desdemona with the claims of cheating Othello commands Emilia to “Leave Procreants alone and shut the door;/ Cough or cry “hem”
Othello is then poisoned by jealousy by his ensign, Iago, and plans to kill the love of his life, Desdemona, because of outlandish claims. After he is confronted with the truth, it is too late, he takes his own life out of grief of killing his own wife. Although this play was made centuries
Throughout a persons life there will be countless ups and downs, and the determining factor if a person has good morals is if they choose to dwell on the negativity and let the ugly side of human nature take over. The play, “Othello,” written by William Shakespeare, is an obscure and theatrical tragedy that highlights human flaws such as envy, discrimination, and sexism. The play takes place in Venice and Cyprus during the Renaissance and is about a Moor general named Othello, who has married and run off with Desdemona, the daughter of a Venetian nobleman. There are numerous bizarre and comic scenes that repeat and reflect the serious substance of the play, such as perhaps the most significant scene in which Desdemona and Iago argue over Iago’s
198-99). By telling this to Othello, Iago hopes that Othello will continue to believe the lies about Desdemona and hopes to ruin their marriage and strip Cassio of lieutenant. When desdemona tries to figure out what is wrong with Othello she turns to Emilia. Emilia then says to Desdemona “But jealous souls will not be answered so. They are not ever jealous for the cause, but jealous for they are jealous,” (Oth.
