My lord, for aught I know.
The mood is changing, yet throughout; it demands a lot of contempt for the villain, Iago.
Beginning with act one; there is an immediate setting for suspicion which will remain characteristic throughout the whole story. There is a feeling of empathy for Othello when his extreme, yet falsely founded jealousy causes him to lose his mind, and his beloved wife.
Iago introduces suspicion in the very first scene. 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 feeling of mistrust is vital in the mood of the play because it is most ironic that Othello trusts Iago as much as to murder his own wife.
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.
He is determined that Othello must have tricked Desdemona into loving him. Othello defends his love for her, and she in turn vows her love for him. This situation of a forbidden relationship is romantic, it makes the reader feel a great deal of respect and happiness for their mutual love.
This also evokes anger towards Iago, he is evil in his constant lying, yet he is referred to by Othello as kind and honest. This irony is painful to the reader because it is so blatant. Jealousy is a very painful emotion, and the reader sympathizes with Othello.

The ending of the story is disastrous, and the reader is devastated when Desdemona, while pleading her innocence, is murdered by the jealously insane Othello.
Othello is tragically surprised when he finally realizes, a minute too late, that he was wrong and Desdemona had been faithful.
Unfortunately this realization is too late, and he has destroyed his own fate. Othello kills himself in shame. The reader has a small feeling of justification that Iago was exposed, yet the mournful mood prevails since Othello, Desdemona, and Emilia, were all robbed of their happiness, and ultimately their lives for the lies that Iago told.2 Michael Cassio - why does Iago dislike him?
