Perhaps no passage in Plutarch's essay seems more particularly relevant to Shakespeare's Othello than the one in which Plutarch describes how a skillful flatterer can provoke discord and jealousy between loved ones, and especially between lovers: in amatorious and love matters they pass [i.e., surpass themselves]: there you shall have them most of all to come over those whom they flatter and lay on load; to them they will join close, and set them on flaming fire.
