Enter Othello and Iago: When we see Othello and Iago, they are in the middle of a conversation, and Iago is saying, "Will you think Character and iago As the conversation progresses, we discover that Iago is torturing Othello by suggesting that it will be very hard to prove that Desdemona has done anything wrong.
Is it possible, Iago asks, that she just gave Cassio an innocent kiss? And maybe that guy pouring gasoline on your carpet is just trying to get it clean.
