Transcript of "8 act 3 scene 3"

  1. 1. Act 2 Scene 3: Othello’s justice • Othello enters to restore order and wants to find out who started the fight • Iago: “I had rather have this tongue cut from my mouth than it should do offence to Michael Cassio.” (LIES!!) • ‘Reluctantly’, Iago tells how Cassio started the fight – Othello sacks Cassio on the spot! Hold, for your lives! Honest Iago, that looks dead with grieving, speak, who began this? On thy love, I charge thee.
  2. 2. • Cassio moans about the loss of his reputation, believing it to be the most important part of himself – Iago tells him this is not important saying “Reputation is an idle and most false imposition” • Iago suggests that Cassio approach Desdemona about his reinstatement – her good nature and influence over Othello will get his job back. • Cassio leaves wishing goodnight to “honest Iago” Reputation, reputation, reputation!
  3. 3. Iago’s soliloquy (end of Act 2 Scene 3) • Iago reveals his plan to lie about Desdemona and Cassio having an affair – Desdemona pleading to get Cassio his job back will make things worse for all three of them! • Will put ideas about D and C into Othello’s head: “I’ll pour this pestilence into his ear”
  4. 4. Act 3 Scene 3 • Desdemona promises Cassio that she will help him • Iago notices Cassio leave Desdemona’s room: “Ha! I like it not” (Draws attention to Cassio’s suspicious exit) • Desdemona pleads for Cassio’s job back • Iago drops more hints about Cassio but insists he is honest “Men should be what they seem” (Irony!) • “Good name in man or woman, is the jewel of their souls” – Saying reputation is important, unlike in the last scene when he said the opposite! • Warns Othello of jealousy: “Beware my lord of jealousy, it is the green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds on”
  5. 5. Iago’s wife Emilia picks up Desdemona’s dropped handkerchief – “her first remembrance from the Moor” mentioning Iago has asked her “ a hundred times to steal it” Act 3 Scene 3 • Othello assures Iago he is not a jealous man and he is confident that Desdemona is faithful • Iago warns him to watch Desdemona to Cassio & that she is capable of deception: Remember, she lied to her father in order to marry Othello!
