Whatever there is to say about Roderigo's resurrection, literal or merely 
by letter, it seems as if should be set against Desdemona's second 
speaking from her bed, after Othello had thought her dead.

Now that I'm on the same page as everyone else, "even now he spake / After 
long seeming dead" (Oxford Complete Works 5.2.337-38) doesn't sound much 
like the discovery of a letter. Steve Sohmer's suggestion that Roderigo 
undergoes a resurrection makes a lot more sense. The play does indeed 
(perhaps ironically) end on Sunday.
