He is discussing how he hates Othello, yet he must feign loyalty for his position. This is already a clue to the reader that Iago cannot be trusted.

This ironic plot creates a frustrating feeling for the reader which is felt throughout the play. The mood is tense when we find out that Brabantio is angry that Othello has taken his daughter.
1, 300). This shows how Iago wants to ruin Othello’s life by making him jealous and blind his judgement. His uncontrollable hate towards Othello can be reflected through the song Rolling In the Deep, “but I’ve heard one on you and I’m gonna make your head burn” (33). These lyrics show how Iago is trying to take advantage of Othello’s weaknesses, which is severe jealousy. From early on in the play, Iago’s aggravation was obvious although Othello was oblivious due to his anger towards Desdemona.
The conversation between both lovers in Act IV scene II, then shows how jealousy has turned Othello to a different man, and that his relationship with Desdemona that once overcame the hardest obstacle is now in a downfall.

(p. 79, Iago) Othello being passionately in love with Desdemona begins to believe the rumors he is told, and it breaks his heart. He is not only envious that his beloved wife would cheat on him with Cassio but that idea of her not loving him, troubled him the most. "By heaven, thou echo'st me/ As if there were some monster in thy thought/ too hideous to be shown." ( W.S, 3.3; 121) Othello's emotions begin to grow from jealously to anger. He has never been heart broken before and now all his emotions of melancholy is running through his mind.
Roderigo's love for Desdemona was transformed into hate towards any man that he thought was loved by her. Iago's love for his job and his wife, Emilia changed into a destructive hatred of Cassio and Othello. As a result of their hatred Cassio, Emilia, and at the end themselves were killed. The connection between love and hate in William Shakespeare's "Othello" is the ugly feeling of jealousy that caused such transformations. Jealousy can be described as a fear of losing something or someone that is valuable (Godfrey 2).
(3.3.189-192) The fact that he believes that his wife is cheating with only implication put out by Iargo shows the fact that he is vulnerable to jealousy. Right after, with Iargo's help he believes to see undeniable proof that Desdemona is cheating with the loss of the handkerchief. Othelllo's jealousy quickly turns to anger as he struggles to survive. He accuses her and though she denies it, he does not believe her. Othello thinks he has no other way to get out of his doubt than to murder Desdemona.
The first sign of jealousy was when Desdemona would talk to Othello about Cassio getting his position back. Othello thought it was a bit strange, and Iago made it worse by exaggerating the situation to Oth... ... middle of paper ... ... in others.” (Hacht).

It almost always leads the individual to hurt the ones that they love the most. Almost always jealousy turns into guilt, which explains why jealousy is a dangerous emotion; it consumes the mind and always leads to devastating consequences.
Othello is a character who has been deeply driven by this emotion, how were you able to show the extent of his jealousy in the film? I have tried to represent the character of Othello to the audience, as a man who in possession of jealousy fury destroys what he loves best in the world; his wife Desdemona. Othello gets manipulated by Iago into believing that his wife has been unfaithful to him with Cassio.“ He becomes so deeply driven by jealousy and the idea that Desdemona has betrayed him with Cassio, that no explanation will reassure him. Such an obsession surpasses Othello's reason, his common sense, and his value for honesty particularly seen when he says, “Honest, honest Iago.” Due to this, we can foreshadow that the ending of the film will not conclude well, which is further confirmed by the burial at sea of Othello and Desdemona.” This can be seen in the scene where he sees his wife's handkerchief in the hands of Cassio's mistress Bianca. Othello is completely submerged by his jealousy, as it is, for him, the visual proof of his wife’s infidelity.
