Emelia with Othello's handkerchief

Gossip, rumor and a stolen handkerchief lead to the brutal murder of innocence, exposing how jealousy and envy fuel our desire to destroy the very thing we covet.

O! beware, my lord, of jealousy;
It is the green-ey'd monster which doth mock
The meat it feeds on.

—Iago, Act III, Scene iii
