    1. Oh, the more angel she

      She lied, but she is an angel. But to be honest is a devil, like Iago?

    2. Heaven truly knows that thou art false as hell.

      Ironic because heaven, being in Othello's eyes as truth and knowledge, should not be so sinister and cause destruction as Iago has. Hell is deception and the ignorance, but so far ignorance has maintained peace. What irony!

    1. Your case is better.Oh, ’tis the spite of hell, the fiend’s arch-mock,To lip a wanton in a secure couch,And to suppose her chaste. No, let me know,And knowing what I am, I know what she shall be

      Advising against innocence, against not knowing, although Iago's advice that gives Othello a taste of new information is really what leads to his downfall.

      Touches on innocence, free will and lack of constraint, lack of morality, lack of humanity == Blake's innocence == protection from Iago
