Storyboard Text

  • The Duke and Senators are talking about the crisis going on in Cyprus. Othello and Brabantio enter.
  • Valiant Othello, we must straight employ you Against the general enemy Ottoman—
  • Brabantio tells the Duke that he is not here for the war.
  • Why, what’s the matter?... Dead?
  • Take hold on me, for my particular grief Is of so flood-gate and o'erbearing nature That it engluts and swallows other sorrows And it is still itself.
  • Brabantio explains what has happened.
  • Ay, to me. She is abused, stol'n from me, and corrupted By spells and medicines bought of mountebanks.
  • Othello listens to the Duke and Brabantio and then explains what has happened from his side.
  • And little of this great world can I speak, More than pertains to feats of broils and battle, And therefore little shall I grace my cause In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience, I will a round unvarnished tale deliver Of my whole course of love. What drugs, what charms, What conjuration and what mighty magic— For such proceeding I am charged withal— I won his daughter.
  • Brabantio protests and tells everyone how his daughter would nevergo for a 'Moor' like Othello.
  • A maiden never bold, Of spirit so still and quiet that her motion Blushed at herself. And she, in spite of nature, Of years, of country, credit, everything, To fall in love with what she feared to look on? It is a judgment maimed and most imperfect That will confess perfection so could err.
  • Desdemona is summoned to prove that Othello has not manipulated her or used magic to get her to marry him.
  • My noble father, I do perceive here a divided duty. To you I am bound for life and education. My life and education both do learn me How to respect you. You are the lord of duty... So much I challenge that I may profess Due to the Moor my lord.
