Emilia tells Othello how she helped in Iago's plot by stealing the handkercheif

She found a handkerchief, and iago wanted her to copy it.

Iago. She was about to reveal how Iago had manipulated Othello by using the handkerchief.

The handkerchief embroidered with strawberries which Othello gave to Desdemona. Iago plans to convince Othello that Desdemona has given it to Cassio.

Iago and Emilia are on the same boat as Desdemona.

He had figured out that Iago was conning him and was thus dangerous to Iago.

He doesn't kill her "in the book"; he kills her onstage in Othello and Desdemona's bedroom, the scene for the final scene of the play.

No, Iago convinces Roderigo to kill Cassio.

When he hears Emilia say that she stole the handkerchief and gave it to Iago.

The one carrying Desdemona, Emilia and Iago.

Othello kills Desdemona. Iago kills Roderigo and Emilia.

In Act II Scene 1, when Iago and Emilia arrive with Desdemona in Cyprus, Cassio greets Emilia with a kiss. Iago says, "Sir, would she give you so much of her lips as of her tongue she oft bestows on me, you'd have enough." He accuses Emilia of being a nag. However, what we see of their relationship in this scene and any other where they are together (especially III, 3) the shoe is on the other foot. It is Iago who is constantly verbally abusive to his wife. In the best productions of the play, Emilia reacts as an abused wife would react, which is totally consistent with the text, and gives her final denunciation of Iago the sense of a liberation from tyranny.

Iago is, although he is more likely to get others to do bad things than to do them himself. He does murder Roderigo, after egging him on to kill Cassio. He also induces Othello to murder Desdemona.The villain in Othello is Iago as he twists Othello's mind and gets him to kill Desdemona, steals from Roderigo and kills him, kills Emilia, wounds Cassio and ruins his job.

Roderigo wants to marry Desdemona, so he dislikes Othello who has married her instead. Iago dislikes Othello because he has promoted Cassio to lieutenant rather than Iago and also because, for some reason, Iago thinks Othello slept with Iago's wife Emilia.

Emilia was Desdemona's waiting-woman, a sort of personal servant. She got the job because her husband Iago had the same kind of job serving Othello.

No. Othello did not kill Iago. He killed Desdemona (he thought he did justice). Then, the truth came out. Othello charged at Iago but was stopped by others at that scene. Then Iago ran away, and Othello killed himself; died upon a kiss on Desdemona.

Three characters are killed: the two lovers, Othello and Desdemona, and Emilia, who is murdered by the evil Iago.

Emilia is confused at first, but she then says that Iago was lying.(V, ii, 178-192 in The New Folger Library "Othello:", 1993 Edition)

He thought Roderigo already had.

Roderigo attacked Cassio but did not kill him. Iago had intended that Roderigo would kill Cassio and then Iago would kill Roderigo. In the scenario you are suggesting, Roderigo is a much more successful fighter than we thought and manages to kill both Cassio and Iago. He would then no doubt have been charged with killing them and might offer in his defence how Iago had conned him out of all his money. Emilia would be able to tell her story and live and it would certainly corroborate what Roderigo would say. Unfortunately none of this would come in time to save Othello or Desdemona, who would both end up dead in any event. Since Cassio is dead, someone else would have to be governor of Cyprus.

Iago believed that Othello slept with his wife, Emilia. He states in Act 1, scene 1. "I hate the moor, and its thought abroad that twixt my sheets he has done my office" -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Iago's becomes enraged because Othello has selected another officer, Cassio, to be his lieutenant, and Iago also believed that Othello slept with his wife, Emilia.

Emilia tells Othello several things but the most notable are, in the order they appear in the play: That it can't be possible that Desdemona is cheating on him, and that someone must be telling him lies.It was Emilia who had found the handkerchief and given it to Iago. Emilia puts together the whole story, and attempts to tell it to Othello.Desdemona loved Othello and was faithful and loyal.

In the case of Desdemona, nobody knew her life was threatened until it was too late. Very much the same thing applies to Emilia, who was attacked by Iago before anyone has a chance to stop him.
