Storyboard Text

  • Othello
  • Haply for I am black,And have not those soft parts of conversationThat chamberers have; or for I am declinedInto the vale of years—yet that’s not much— She’s gone. I am abused, and my reliefMust be to loathe her. O curse of marriage,That we can call these delicate creatures oursAnd not their appetites! I had rather be a toadAnd live upon the vapor of a dungeonThan keep a corner in the thing I loveFor others’ uses. Yet ’tis the plague of great ones; Prerogatived are they less than the base.
  • "She wished she had not heard it, yet she wished that heaven had made her such a man."
  • Iago
  • "But I will wear my heart upon my sleeveFor daws to peck at: I am not what I am."
  • One Michael Cassio, a Florentine,A fellow almost damned in a fair wife,That never set a squadron in the field,Nor the division of a battle knowsMore than a spinster—unless the bookish theoric,Wherein the togèd consuls can proposeAs masterly as he: mere prattle, without practiceIs all his soldiership. But he, sir, had the election;And I, of whom his eyes had seen the proofAt Rhodes, at Cyprus and on other groundsChristian and heathen, must be beleed and    calmedBy debitor and creditor. This counter-caster,He, in good time, must his lieutenant be.
  • Desdemona
  • "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 meHow to respect you. You are the lord of my duty,I am hitherto your daughter. But here’s my husband,And so much duty as my mother showedTo you, preferring you before her father,So much I challenge that I may professDue to the Moor my lord."
  • A Christian Moor and general of the armies of Venice, Othello is an eloquent and physically powerful figure, respected by all those around him.In spite of Othello's excellent reputation, racial differences make it difficult for him to live in Venetian society and cause problems in his personal life. Although Othello knows Desdemona loves him, he lets Iago, a vengeful soldier, manipulate him into believing she's been unfaithful, so this was a major conflict in the play. <!-- /* Font Definitions */ @font-face {font-family:"Cambria Math"; panose-1:2 4 5 3 5 4 6 3 2 4; mso-font-charset:0; mso-generic-font-family:roman; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:3 0 0 0 1 0;} @font-face {font-family:Calibri; panose-1:2 15 5 2 2 2 4 3 2 4; mso-font-charset:0; mso-generic-font-family:swiss; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:-536859905 -1073732485 9 0 511 0;} /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-unhide:no; mso-style-qformat:yes; mso-style-parent:""; margin:0cm; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Calibri",sans-serif; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-fareast-font-family:Calibri; mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-bidi-font-family:Arial; mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi;} .MsoChpDefault {mso-style-type:export-only; mso-default-props:yes; font-family:"Calibri",sans-serif; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-fareast-font-family:Calibri; mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-bidi-font-family:Arial; mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi;} @page WordSection1 {size:612.0pt 792.0pt; margin:72.0pt 72.0pt 72.0pt 72.0pt; mso-header-margin:36.0pt; mso-footer-margin:36.0pt; mso-paper-source:0;} div.WordSection1 {page:WordSection1;} -->
  • Cassio
  • "Reputation, reputation, reputation! O, I have lost my reputation! I have lost the immortal part ofmyself, and what remains is bestial. My reputation,Iago, my reputation!"
  • Iago has very few redeeming qualities, he has the ability to charm and convince people of his loyalty and honesty “Honest Iago”.Iago is a man with an obsession for control and power over others who has let this obsession take over his whole life. Necessity forces his hand, and, in order to destroy Othello, he must also destroy Roderigo, Emilia, Desdemona, and ultimately himself. 
  • Emilia
  • "But jealous souls will not be answered so.They are not ever jealous for the cause,But jealous for they are jealous. It is a monsterBegot upon itself, born on itself."
  •  Desdemona is the most direct and honest speaker in the play. For Desdemona, Othello is the hero of many exciting and dangerous adventures, who also has the appeal of the orphan child who needs love. This numbness lasts until she sees that he actually intends to kill her; then she puts up a brave and spirited defense, insisting on her innocence. In despair at losing his love, she still defends him from the consequences of his actions. without his love, she cannot live.
  • Brabantio
  • "Look to her, Moor, if thou hast eyes to see.  She has deceived her father, and may thee."
  • Cassio is a soldier in the Venetian army. He is quickly promoted to lieutenant, which is upsetting to Iago, a fellow soldier, who was hoping to be promoted to lieutenant. Cassio is a weak man who does not anticipate the manipulative nature of others. During an encounter with Iago, Cassio does not realize Iago is trying to make him drunk. Cassio drinks openly, gets into a brawl this conflict was a vital one in Cassio's character 
  • Desdemona's maid, a woman of practical intelligence and emotional resilience. She speaks disparagingly of men, She believes most men are foolish, wicked, or perverse, and nothing she experiences during the course of the play disproves that assessment. Emilia's love for Iago made her betray Desdemona by stealing her handkerchief given to Desdemona by Othello, which stirred up more conflicts.
  • 'Tis not a year or two shows us a man:They are all but stomachs, and we all but food:They eat us hungerly, and when they are fullThey belch us.'
  • .Brabantio as a character is every bit the overprotective father, but in some ways, he represents the pull of youth on Desdemona as well. Brabantio is obviously agitated when he learns the truth, and rapidly shifts from blaming Desdemona to grasping at wild explanations. He first refers to the elopement as a 'treason of the blood' but immediately pounces upon an alternative that will help him preserve his image of his daughter, even if it means forging an alliance with Roderigo.
