Before the Play:

1. Dialogue excercise: Write dialogue for a scene where a lover and a friend are discussing a girlfriend's loyalty. Add the friend trying to say the girlfriend wants another guy2. A slightly cut version of 1.1.74-160

  • 1. What is going on in these scenes? Who are these people and what are they doing?

  • 2. Who are Roderigo and Iago? What kind of people are they? Who’s in control? What has just happened? What about Brabantio’s daughter—how do you picture her? Why is it that neither Othello or Desdemona is mentioned by name in this scene?

  • 3. What sort of language does Iago use to tell Brabantio of his daughter’s elopement? On what sort of fears and prejudices is Iago playing?

    Act 1 scene 11. 3 questions: why do Iago, Roderigo and Brabantio hate the man they are discussing? what reasons does Iago give for continuing to serve his master? and What kind of person do you expect Othello to be/how do you imagine him? 2. Summarize lines 1.1.1-73 and lines 1.1.161-2063. Describe the hat you chose for Iago, Brabantio and Roderigo and explain how it shows his character
