Description:

This paper analyzes the passage from Act IV of Othello, Scene iii, 89-106. The paper explains that this scene comes after the dinner that Desdemona has had to host for Othello. By this point in the play, Othello has been made to doubt Desdemona because of the falsehoods carefully promoted by Iago. Othello has just interrogated both Desdemona and Emilia, showing his belief in the perfidy of Desdemona and his refusal to see reason. The paper asserts that this speech by Emilia is an effort on her part to get Desdemona to feel better and not to despair at the way her husband has been treating her, in essence by suggesting to her that she should do what Othello suspects her of and that it would be his own fault.
