In the play, Othello by William Shakespeare throughout the entire play it had portrayed symbolism and foreshadowing. These had influenced the most of the characters to act in a foolish ways. This leads us to a suspense ending that caused loved ones to go against each other. By not realizing what is going on between the characters can cause confusing in the plans of the play. Likewise, by connecting each of the following character made it seem we might have knew something was going to happen at the end. Throughout the play we are able to recognize that the handkerchief is played as an important part with all the characters. This is done by showing how each one of the characters is acting with it being loss. Due to it being misplaced some of the characters will do something they normally wouldn’t have done.
The first symbol is the handkerchief. Othello had given Desdemona this as a significant gift of his love to her. By having this gift, it had showed that she is faithful to be part of his marriage and wants him to see that she wants to be with him.

Since he had the missing handkerchief, he believes she is now becoming unfaithful to his love. Due to the color of white and red has meaning behind it.

He wants her to die in the same spot where they once made love due to the fact she isn’t as faithful. By doing this here, shows he wants her to be in the same location where he once thought she wasn’t dishonest with his love.
Next, at first Othello did not want to believe Iago was telling the truth that Cassio has been cheating on Desdemona with this other man. We already know he is making this up since the handkerchief is lost; he needed another reason to see if this was actually true. Due to this being a thoughtless lie, Othello wants to either see or hear proof that it has been going on. Iago than makes up a lie about a dream he witnesses and is part of to make Othello go crazy. The dream was supposed to be the truth that his beloved wife is now a cheater! Supposedly, this dream had been when Cassio was talking in his sleep and wanted to get imitate with his wife.
