At the beginning of Act 3, scene 4, Desdemona, Emilia and a Clown banter about where a man lies, the clown making the obvious pun on lie meaning either to reside or to not tell the truth.
What is Shakespeare's purpose in these lines?
To foreshadow the lies which will be revealed
To present Emilia and Desdemona a gullible
To provide comic relief
To remind the audience of the theme of mistrust
To flashback to the lies told by Iago, Desdemona, and Othello
