Meaning and analysis
Kwize Master Desdemona complains to Iago that her husband Othello no longer loves her after he called her a "whore". She doesn't understand why Othello has come to this point, yet she states that even though his meanness could lead her to lose her life, her love for him will remain unchanged.
