Othello in Othello research papers, a rough, soldierly Moor, has secretly married Desdemona, the daughter of Brabantio, a Venetian nobleman. Iago, who had hoped to be Othello's chief lieutenant but had been put aside in favor of Cassio, manipulates Rodrigo, who has aspirations towards Desdemona, into helping stir up Brabantio. Othello appears before the Venetian Senate. Othello research papers show there the marriage is proclaimed and Brabantio grudgingly accepts the fait accompli. Othello is assigned to defend the island of Cyprus against the Turks.
The Othello research paper changes the scene of the play then shifts to the island where Iago contrives to both get Cassio drunk and to get him in a brawl with Rodrigo as well; the result of this is Cassio's demotion. Iago then gets Cassio to ask Desdemona to intervene on his, Cassio's, behalf and she does so. Iago deftly uses this to plant the suspicion in Othello's mind that Desdemona pleads on the behalf of Cassio because the two have become lovers. Iago also exploits the fact that his wife, Emilia, is Desdemona's trusted maid to contrive a situation in which Othello becomes aware that Cassio has a handkerchief which Othello had given to Desdemona. Othello becomes mad with jealousy and kills Desdemona. Iago kills Rodrigo and Emilia, but not before the latter has shown Othello that Desdemona was innocent. Iago is arrested and Othello kills himself. Iago is condemned to die by torture.
