This paper examines two lines spoken by the character Iago in William Shakespeare's "Othello" and uses them to explore the lies and false beliefs underlying the play.

From the Paper:

""Demand me nothing; what you know, you know: From this time forth I never will speak word." (5.2.313-314) These words spoken by Iago in William Shakespeare's Othello reveal much about the entire play. Although spoken near the conclusion of the play, Iago's words expose his true character, which he has cleverly hidden through deception and manipulation throughout the play. The entire play hinges on lies and false beliefs, most of them originating from Iago. This paper will examine the significance of the above lines from Othello."
