Subject:        Iago

This has probably been discussed at some time on the list, but being a
new member, I thought I'd ask: When Iago says, 'I am not what I am', is
this a deliberate allusion to Yahweh's 'I am what I am'? Is Iago the
Adversary then, as described in the Bible, esp. Job-and does this
explain his apparently motiveless behaviour and fizzling out at the end
of the play?
