Othello Seminar
Othello Seminar
By Sonja and Patricija
"Look to her, Moor. if thou hast eyes to see. She has deceived her father, and may thee." (Act 1, Scene 3)
"I am glad I have found this napkin, This was her first remembrance from the Moor. My wayward husband hath a hundred times Wooed me to steal it/What he will do with it haven knows, not I. I nothing but to please his fantasy" (Act3, Scene 3)
"Where should I lose that handkerchief, Emilia?/I know not, madam." (Act 3, Scene 4)
"I will incontinently drown myself/It is silliness to live when to live is torment, and then have we a prescription to die when death is our physician." (Act 1, Scene 3)
Admits to taking it just to please her husband
Openly lies about the whereabouts of the handkerchief

Wants to drown himself b/c it seems like the only way to go out when life is so torturous to continue living.

Desdemona's father warns Othello that if she can lie to her own father, she can lie to him
"So shall you have a shorter journey to your desires by the means I shall then have to prefer them, and the impediment most profitably removed, without the which there were no expectation of our prosperity."(Act 2, Scene1)

In conclusion, these characters are distracted by their own desires to notice they are set up to complete Iago's true motives of eliminating Cassio and then Othello to become the next leader of Cyprus.
Have you ever wanted something so badly that you would do anything to get it?
"I’ll send her to you presently,/And I’ll devise a mean to draw the Moor/Out of the way, that your converse and business/May be more free."(Act 3, scene 1)
Iago plans to create chaos and for Roderigo to get what he wants he must get rid of Cassio.
Do you think it's foolish for Roderigo to be so in love with Desdemona that rather die than live without her?
Do you think by Iago telling Roderigo that if he does not get Cassio out of the way it means he is hopeless, makes him more determined to get Cassio fired at any cost?
"If I can fasten but one cup upon him,/With that which he hath drunk tonight already,/He’ll be as full of quarrel and offense/As my young mistress' dog" (Act 2, scene 3)
Have you ever been so eager to accomplish something that you would do anything to achieve it?
Does social status truly define you as a person?
Iago wants to get Cassio drunk and get Roderigo to fight him so he would loose his badge
Iago will send Cassio to Emilia to ask her if she could help him get to Desdemona and talk to her about getting his badge back.
Have you ever heard rumors about your friends and had different opinion on them ever since?
Do you think Cassio is right in going to Desdemona to see if she can convince Othello to re-instate him?
In the beginning do you think Othello was concerned with Desdemona deceiving him as well?
Have you ever been consumed by jealousy to the point where it was your main focus?
"Oh, beware, my lord, of jealousy! It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock The meat it feeds on. That cuckold lives in bliss Who, certain of his fate, loves not his wronger, But, oh, what damnèd minutes tells he o'er Who dotes, yet doubts— suspects, yet soundly loves!" (Act 3, Scene 3)

Iago foreshadows Othello's anger towards Cassio
