Storyboard Text

  • In the opening scene of Act 1, Roderigo and Iago are discussing Othello and Desdemona's "betrayal" marriage. Iago convinces Roderigo to wake up Barbantio, Desdemona's father, to let him know Othello kidnapped her. Roderigo and Iago make this story up because Desdemona simply ran off with Othello and not Roderigo.
  • Roderigo confesses to Iago that he wants to kill himself because Desdemona is with another man. This is the falling action because after the whole situation with Desdemona's rebellion, Iago continues his evil plan.
  • Act 1, Scene 2: the rising action is when Brabantio goes looking for his daughter Desdemona after finding she is missing, he believes her to have been kidnapped by The Moor, Othello. Othello is tracked down and put on trial in front of the Duke to testify for his innocence, He brings Desdemona in to give her statement that she loves him and wasn't taken against her will.
  • Act 1, Scene 3: The climax was mainly found in Brabantio's line, "Look to her, Moor, if thou hast eyes to see. She has decieved her father, and may thee." This draws the reader in because Brabantio doesn't trust Desdemona and they want to see the outcome of whether or not she will betray Othello.
  • At the end of the act, Desdemona and Othello's marriage has been blessed by Brabantio, unwillingly. Othello has to go to fight in the Turkish war, and Iago has successfully convinced Iago not to kill himself but to win over Desdemona with a lot of money in the future. This is the resolution because Iago has gotten Roderigo not to kill himself plus Othello and Desdemona are happily married.
