View Full Version : Anybody read Othello?

I just finished it yesterday but I can't for the life of me figure out what happens to Iago at the end. I re-read the last three pages like five times but I have no clue. Who can help me out?

He's arrested and, though it is never made certain, it is assumed he is to be executed.

(I love Wikipedia.)

Haha yeah, what lards said. Also, its been almost 4 years for me but I seem to recall it being pretty clear when I read it that he got arrested. :eyes:

Maybe I just wasn't paying that close of attention, but like four pages from the end he tells Othello "We shall speak no more of this matter", then his name isn't mentioned and he doesn't speak again. I guess he must have been getting arrested when he said that and I didn't read back far enough.
