Storyboard Text

  • I'm so confused about this Shakespeare nonsense in English class. I don't understand Othello at all.
  • Othello is all about jealousy. I actually just did some research on it.
  • PRINCIPAL
  • One article, Shakespeare and the Green Eyed Monster, discusses how irrational the jealousy is.
  • I remember some examples of that! People were jealous for no reason!
  • The entire play is driven by jealousy, mainly Iago's jealousy.
  • PRINCIPAL
  • "If she be false, O, then heaven mocks itself, I'll not believe it!"
  • Like when Othello goes from trusting Desdemona to cursing her in a second!
  • Once the seed of doubt is planted (thanks to Iago), Othello doesn't even need actual evidence to become jealous.
  • "Damn her, lewd minx: O, damn her!"
  • And in the beginning when Iago says even though he has no proof that his wife is having an affair, he's going to act like he knows it's true.
  • "I know not if't be true... yet I, for mere suspicion in that kind, will do, as if for surety"
  • "Right! Iago admits he has absolutely no evidence; he's just looking for something to be jealous about."
  • Iago's initial jealousy leads all of the other characters to be affected by jealousy, most of them dying because of it...
  • ...Desdemona...
  • ...Emilia...
  • ...and Othello himself.
  • ...Roderigo...
  • I finally get it! Irrational jealousy (especially Iago's) drives the play. Thanks!
  • Exactly; I'm glad I could help! See you around...
  • I don't know... Cassio talks in his sleep and he may have had Desdemona's hankerchief so...
  • PRINCIPAL
