Othello, Act 3 Scene 4/ Act 4, Scene 1

Emilia key quote on men and women stresses Desdemona’s vulnerability and connotes danger they are all but stomachs, and we all but food: / they eat us hungerly, and when they are full/ they belch us
Is Cassio a misogynist too? womaned
Othello makes many short exclamations before he falls into a trance Lie with her, zounds, that’s fulsome!
Iago presents lies concerning Cassio and Desdemona as fact in a vulgar way- uses nearly all monosyllabic words, like individual blows, suggests Desdemona has been unfaithful for much longer he hath and is again to cope your wife
Bianca loves Cassio I think i’faith she loves me
Cassio’s disdain for Bianca I marry! What, a customer!
Othello has decided to kill Desdemona Get me some poison, Iago, this night
Iago chooses how Othello should kill Desdemona- bed is thematically important (represents their love)- he is now fully controlling Othello Do it not with poison, strangle her in her bed
Othello is egotistical about killing Desdemona- he thinks he’s doing the right thing Good, good, the justice of it pleases
Desdemona’s reaction after being slapped- is she assertive or passive? I have not deserved this.
Lodovico’s reaction after witnessing Othello’s violence- his reputation has been tarnished and his pride affected My lord, this would not be believed in Venice/ Though I should swear I saw’t
Lodovico’s statement reminds us how much Othello has changed- Lodovico is an outsider, after all I am sorry that I am deceived in him
Othello’s ultimate reaction when he thinks Desdemona has lost the hankerchief and therefore her fidelity to los’t or to giv’t away were such perdition
