Othello help me with homework: Why doesn’t Desdemona react more strongly when Othello accuses her of infidelity

  • Why doesn’t Desdemona react more strongly when Othello accuses her of infidelity?
  • As Emilia prepares her mistress’s wedding bed, Desdemona talks of her mother’s servant Barbary who was forsaken by a mad lover, 4.3.25ff; then she and Emilia talk about whether they would be unfaithful to their husbands or not (4.3.60ff). What is the significance of this conversation?
