He uses it also to crudely describe the false affair between Cassio and Desdemona. Under Iago’s tutelage Rodrigo also uses such imagery describing Iago himself as inhuman dog. Even heartbroken Othello uses it describe tears of women as crocodile tears, a sign of his distrust in Desdemona’s truthfulness. 1 Login to Reply Share Share Share on WhatsApp Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Sorry, you do not have a permission to answer to this question.
