Storyboard Text

  • In Act 1 Scene 1, Iago is trying to do whatever he can to separate Othello and Desdemona. He tries to get on everyone's good side to manipulate them into hating Othello.
  • In Act 1 Scene 2, Iago tries to manipulate Othello into thinking that he is on the same side as him. Afterwards, Brabantio arrives and begins to throw false accusations at Othello while Othello remains unfazed. This scene's importance is to further develop the issues between Iago and Othello as well as the issue between the Turks.
  • In Act 1 Scene 3, Othello and Desdemona confront Brabantio about the issue at hand. Brabantio ends up asking whom Desdemona owes obedience to and she says that she obeys Othello and that she will be disloyal to her father as her mother was to her father. Afterwards, Othello and the other soldiers go to resolve the conflict with the Turks. The importance of this scene is that it will lead to later conflicts in war since the problems have yet to be resolved. This will also lead to Iago trying to find more ways to separate Othello and Desdemona because he failed.
