Storyboard Text

  • Othello by William Shakespeare.
  • My name is Bianca. Here will begin the exciting, but tragically sad story of Othello.
  • Othello's Common Elements
  • Fatal Flaw Othello is too trusting in people which is one of his fatal flaws. Iago says "the Moor is of a free and open nature, that thinks men honest that but seem to be so, & will as tenderly be led by the nose as asses are”.
  • Fall of the nobleman Othello was well respected. Ex: Desdemona states “to his honors and his valiant parts did I my soul and fortunes consecrate” Othello is a trusted solider. Ex: He is described as “valiant” by the Duke, and “brave” by Montano.
  • External Pressure Iago is constantly manipulating Othello. Ex: Othello-Was not that Cassio parted from my wife? Iago- Cassio, my lord! No, sure, I cannot think it That he would steal away so guiltylike, Seeing you coming. Othello-I do believe 'twas he.
  • Hero Lodovico tells othello "You’ll remain a prisoner until we bring your crimes to the Venetian government.—Okay, take him away." but instead Othello stabs himself.
  • Aside, Soliloquy, and Monologue
  • Aside "O, you are well tuned now! But I'll set down the pegs that make this music, As honest as I am. "
  • Monologue "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; I am hitherto your daughter: but here's my husband, And so much duty as my mother show'd To you, preferring you before her father, So much I challenge that I may profess Due to the Moor my lord."
  • Soliloquy Thus do I ever make my fool my purse For I mine own gain’d knowledge should profane, If I would time expend with such a snipe. But for my sport and profit. I hate the Moor And it is thought abroad, that ‘twixt my sheets He has done my office: I know not if’t be true; But I, for mere suspicion in that kind, Will do as if for surety. He holds me well; The better shall my purpose work on him. Cassio’s a proper man: let me see now: To get his place and to plume up my will In double knavery–How, how? Let’s see:– After some time, to abuse Othello’s ear That he is too familiar with his wife. He hath a person and a smooth dispose To be suspected, framed to make women false. The Moor is of a free and open nature, That thinks men honest that but seem to be so, And will as tenderly be led by the nose As asses are. I have’t. It is engender’d. Hell and night Must bring this monstrous birth to the world’s light.
  • Significance of the word "Honest"
  • My name is Roderigo. The word "honest" was used often in this play. Everyone refers Iago to be this honest person which is ironic. In actuality he was the biggest liar in the entire play. He used the fact everyone thought he was honest to manipulate them.
  • Significance of the Handkerchief
  • My name is Cassio I am the lieutenant right under Othello. The handkerchief symbolizes Desdemona's fidelity. When it shows up in my possession, Othello is convinced that Desdemona is unfaithful.
  • Significance of the Weeping Willow
  • My name is Emilia I am considered to be the closet to Desdemona. Desdemona is worried that the man she married has gone crazy and will desert her. Willows at the edge of water are a traditional symbol of women deserted by their lovers
