Question

Who is the “poor trash of Venice”? In Othello act 2, scene 3

Answer

In the play, Iago manipulates Cassio by getting him drunk and then instigating a fight between him and Roderigo, followed by a confrontation with Montano, which Cassio ultimately injures. This disturbs Othello's rest, causing him to intervene and dismiss Cassio as his lieutenant. Iago then advises Cassio to seek Desdemona's help in order to regain his position. The purpose of this is to keep Cassio in check during the upcoming festivities, where Othello reminds him to remain in control. After Othello and Desdemona leave to consummate their marriage, Iago shows up and joins Cassio on watch duty. Despite Cassio's assurances of Desdemona's modesty, Iago tries to plant the seed of doubt in Cassio's mind, alleging that she is a temptress.
