3 Selection: Act I Scene 1 Class Discussion Date: 11/16/10 In Act 1, Scene 1 of Othello Iago explains his hatred of Othello to Roderigo, using Cassio s promotion as a dominant reason. He incites his naïve friend to awaken Brabantio in order to inform the elder statesman of his daughter s, Desdemona s elopement to the Moor. Roderigo also has cause to hate Othello because he had tried to woo Desdemona himself, but failed. Iago conveniently stays hidden while Roderigo enrages and engages Brabantio to act.

Othello is a minority in this country potential for prejudice Iago Roderigo Brabantio Jealousy Iago is jealous of Cassio getting the promotion Iago says, He [Cassio] (in good time!) must his [Othello s] lieutenant be, / And I ([God] bless the mark! his Moorship s ancient ( ).

I am not what I am (1.1.65). Though I do hate him [Othello] as I do hell-pains, / Yet, for necessity of present life, / I must show out a flag and sign of love, / Which is indeed but sign ( ). How does this selection help me answer the essential Othello s actions have prompted Iago to seek revenge. Roderigo and Iago cause Brabantio to stir from bed and confront Othello.
