Tricked! Black Magic! Thief! Don't trust that black THING!
I'm Innocent! Please understand me my duke
Ha! Ha! Ha!
He's laughing already?
Good, by laughing It's only going to make Othello more jelous
Why would my dear Desdemona choose him over me?
This is a external conflict. This conflict shows the argument between Othello and Desdemona's father, Brabantio. This is one of the major conflicts because Othello is being accused of casting"Black magic" or "Spell' on Brabantio's daughter, Desdemona. To the duke Othello is a fine general, but to Brabantio Othello is a person who is unworthy of here daughter because of his skin color. In the story, Othello and Brabintio fight with words and this makes it a person vs person conflict. As the argument went on Othello starts to talk about his inner feelings about Desdemona and how cares about her. Act1-Scene3-Line:130 "She thanked me and told me that if a friend of mine had a story like mine to tell, she’d fall in love with him. I took the hint and spoke to her. She said she loved me for the dangers I’d survived, and I loved her for feeling such strong emotions about me. That’s the only witchcraft I ever used. Here comes my wife now. She’ll confirm everything."
In this scene, it shows Othello hiding behind a bush secretly seeing and listening to Cassio. This is an external conflict because of the fact that it is being caused by other people. Iago is making Cassio laugh when Othello is thinking that they are talking about Desdemona when they are actually talking about Bianca. Othello looks at this as a sign that Cassio is a backstabbing devil and even coming forward to bluntly say "How should I murder him, Iago". Iago then brings up the conversation after Cassio leaves and resaying and telling the things Cassio laughed about. For example, in act 4 scene 1, Iago Lies "Did you see how he laughed about sleeping with her?". Othello can't help but hate Cassio for this making him want to kill him and this proves that this is a external conflict.
In Act 4 of Othello, The main character, Othello shows some Jealousy towards his Desdemona. Iago lies to Othello that Cassio is in love with Desdemona and Desdemona accepts his love towards her. This gets Othello feeling jealous and acting ways he normally wouldn't. Since it is a conflict between Othello and his emotions it is an inner conflict. In act 3 scene 3 "Beware of jealousy, my lord! It’s a green-eyed monster that makes fun of the victims it devours. The man who knows his wife is cheating on him is happy because at least he isn’t friends with the man she’s sleeping with. But think of the unhappiness of a man who worships his wife, yet doubts her faithfulness. He suspects her, but still loves her."
