""The Tragedy of Othello, The Moor of Venice" begins with an argument between a rich man name Roderigo and Iago. They are discussing Desdemona, the newlywed wife of Othello, the general and Moor. Roderigo has been paying Iago to assist him in his pursuit and hoped-for conquest of Desdemona (Shakespeare 1198-1248). Roderigo has just learned that Desdemona has married Othello. Iago, an ensign of Othello's, has also just been passed over for the title of lieutenant in favor of someone else, the less qualified Michael Cassio (Shakespeare 1198-1248)."
