7 act 2 scene 3 drinking and fighting

  1. 1. Wednesday 3rd July • Cassio says at the start: “I have poor and unhappy brains for drinking” (Can’t take his drink!) • Iago gets the party going, singing drinking songs, encouraging Cassio to drink – he is drunk very quickly! • When Cassio leaves, Iago comments on Cassio’s “vice” for drink to Montano saying “’Tis’ evermore the prologue to his sleep” • This is another example of Iago being two-faced (like the god Janus!) Act 2 Scene 3 aka Cassio the lightweight
  2. 2. Wednesday 3rd July • Iago sends Roderigo after Cassio and the two re-enter fighting. Montano tries to stop Cassio striking Roderigo, accuses Cassio of being drunk – which angers Cassio, who stabs Montano! Iago calls for the town bell for the rung to fetch help – and wake Othello up // disrupt him from his wedding night • (Othello will not be happy!) Cassio the fighter! Montano
  3. 3. Othello’s justice • As we are reading the rest of Act 2 Scene 3, find out what Othello’s punishment for Cassio • Is this the “end point” of Iago’s plan? See how Iago responds… Hold, for your lives! Honest Iago, that looks dead with grieving, speak, who began this? On thy love, I charge thee.
