Storyboard Text

  • I take it much unkindly That thou, Iago, who hast had my purse As if the strings were thine, shouldst know of this.
  • I take it much unkindly That thou, Iago, who hast had my purse As if the strings were thine, shouldst know of this.
  • Iago and Roderigo are in the street and Roderigo is angry that Iago did not tell him about the secret marriage of Othello, a lieutenant, and Desdemona, the woman whom Rodegerigo is in love with.
  • 'Sblood, but you’ll not hear me! If ever I did dream of such a matter, abhor me.
  • Thou told’st me Thou didst hold him in thy hate.
  • Despise me, If I do not... “I have already chose my officer.” And what was he? Forsooth, a great arithmetician, One Michael Cassio, a Florentine That never set a squadron in the field, Nor the division of a battle knows.
  • The two start to talk about Othello and Iago's hatred for him because Othello didn't give him the role as his partner, instead giving it to Cassio.
  • I would not follow him then.
  • Now sir, be judge yourself, Whether I in any just term am affined To love the Moor... I follow him to serve my turn upon him. We cannot all be masters, nor all masters Cannot be truly followed. And, throwing but shows of service on their lords, Do well thrive by them.
  • The two continue to talk about Othello and how he is being used as an advantage to Iago. Iago hates Othello so much he comes up with a plan to try and get Othello into trouble...
  • The two decide to betray Othello and tell Desdemona's father about the marriage. They want Othello to get into trouble because it would be seen as almost 'taboo' to marry someone who was not Venetian.
  • What, ho, Brabantio! Signior Brabantio, ho! Awake! What, ho, Brabantio! Thieves! Thieves! Look to your house, your daughter, and your bags! Thieves! thieves!
  • Brabantio, the father, arrives from being awoken and demands to know what is going on and is shocked and angry to find that Desdemona has married 'a Moor'.
  • What, have you lost your wits?
  • Your heart is burst, you have lost half your soul. Even now, now, very now, an old black ram Is tupping your white ewe. Arise, arise, Awake the snorting citizens with the bell Or else the devil will make a grandsire of you.
  • After being told the news, Brabantio notices Roderigo and becomes more angry, telling him to stay away from the home because Desdemona doesn't want to marry him.
  • I have charged thee not to haunt about my doors. In honest plainness thou hast heard me say My daughter is not for thee. And now in madness, Being full of supper and distempering drafts,Upon malicious knavery dost thou come To start my quiet?
