10 act 4 scene 1

  1. 1. • Iago swears to serve Othello, who instructs him to kill Cassio. “Within three days let me hear thee say that Cassio’s not alive” • Othello vows to kill Desdemona himself. “Damn her, lewd minx!” “I will withdraw to furnish me with some swift means of death for the fair devil.” • He appoints Iago to be his lieutenant. Act 3 Scene 3
  2. 2. Some 250 lines later…
  3. 3. • Othello demands to see the handkerchief that was his first gift to Desdemona – obviously, Desdemona makes excuses as she has mysteriously lost it • She tries to change the subject by repeating her request that Cassio gets his job back – this just makes Othello even madder! Act 3 Scene 4
  4. 4. Act 3 Scene 4 • We meet Cassio’s prostitute lover Bianca – he makes excuses for not seeing her all week • He asks Bianca to copy this rather nice handkerchief he found in his room • Bianca is jealous, suggesting that it is a gift from another woman – she agrees and then Cassio shoos her away so that Othello doesn’t see him with Bianca (meeting with a prostitute in front of your boss would not do his job hopes any good!
  5. 5. Act 4 Scene 1 • Iago wants go give Othello some “proof” that Cassio and Desdemona are having an affair • Iago gets Othello to hide while he talks to Cassio – about Bianca. • This turns into typical lads bragging talk – Cassio using derogatory language to describe “her” saying how crazy “she” is for him (and Othello assumes the “her” is Desdemona!) • Cassio: “I marry her! What? A customer? Prithee bear me some charity to my wit.”
