My name is Iago

Extracts from this document...


Iago Liam Garcia My name is Iago. I suppose I could be called the villain if this were a story. My hate of the Moor, both for that of Cassio, his lieutenant and that of himself, the 'superior Moor' have driven me to take my revenge. The 'valiant moor', as he is now known, in his worst decision that shall surely become his downfall, has passed me over for the role of his lieutenant and bestowed it instead upon Cassio, "that never set a squadron in the field" and made me "of whom his eyes had seen the proof", his ancient, his sword-bearer. So instantly angered was I by this news that revenge was soon in the planning, and it was late last night when I began. ...read more.


Even when the livid Brabantio appeared, Othello would not rise and be killed like he should have been. That Moor, he managed to win both Brabantio and then the Duke, when he should have been dead, and his trustworthy ancient in his position. It is all because of the Duke, and his worship of Othello that the Moor managed to escape from Brabantio's fair accusation. If a man steals or uses drams or conjuration to steal away from her father a young maiden, it should be the father's right to hunt down the dishonourable man and with all faith in the integrity of the court. I thought all was lost until the most 'valiant moor'; Othello entrusted to me his dearest prize; Desdemona, to bear with me to Cyprus, where we once again shall have to fight those damned Ottomites. ...read more.


Now, in Cyprus, with both of these fools, it should be simple to take down both of them. "Cassio's a proper man" so it will be harder to strike him down, the best way would be to continue as I am; to first shed doubt on his reputation with Othello, plant small things of uncertain credibility in the path of Cassio, who will, with his unshakeable loyalty take it immediately to the Moor who will, when the seeds of doubt have grown in his mind will surely begin to believe my small tale of falsification. Then, if I take every opportunity that passes, Othello will believe and be plagued by the tale till it is ever present in his mind, and acts, ending in death and the downfall of both the Moor and Michael Cassio. ...read more.
