Storyboard Text

  • Othello and Iago are speaking Brabantio. Iago, as usual, is being manipulative by saying how he was offended at how Brabantio was speaking of Othello, even though this isn't true.
  • 'Tis better as it is.
  • Though in the trade of war I have slain men, Yet do I hold it very stuff o' th' conscience To do no contrived murder.
  • Othello is brave to stand outside when Brabantio and his men arrive, despite the urges of Iago to go and hide inside. Othello protests that he is innocent so does not need to hide.
  • Not I, I must be found. My parts, my title, and my perfect soul Shall manifest me rightly. Is it they?
  • Cassio arrives and tells Othello that the Duke needs to see him about something to do with Cyprus.
  • Something from Cyprus as I may divine. It is a business of some heat. The galleys Have sent a dozen sequent messengers This very night at one another’s heels, And many of the consuls, raised and met, Are at the Duke’s already. You have been hotly called for.
  • Brabantio and the others arrive in search of Othello. Brabantio is angry and starts to shout at Othello, accusing him.
  • O thou foul thief, where hast thou stowed my daughter? Damned as thou art, thou hast enchanted her! For I’ll refer me to all things of sense, If she in chains of magic were not bound, Whether a maid so tender, fair, and happy, So opposite to marriage that she shunned...
  • Brabantio orders Othello go to court for his 'crimes' and Othello obliges however the Duke still wants to see him.
  • What if I do obey? How may the Duke be therewith satisfied, Whose messengers are here about my side Upon some present business of the state To bring me to him?
  • Brabantio states that the law will be on his side so they can go to the Duke together.
  • Bring him away. Mine’s not an idle cause. The Duke himself, Or any of my brothers of the state, Cannot but feel this wrong as ’twere their own.
