Othello (The Tragedy of Othello, the Moor of Venice) is a tragedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in 1603. The story revolves around its two central characters: Othello, a Moorish general in the Venetian army and his treacherous ensign, Iago.
The Duke asks Othello what he has to say for himself. Actually, Othello has quite a bit to say: his only offense is to have married Brabantio's daughter. Othello sends Iago, in whom he trusts, to fetch the girl while he tells the story of his courtship. Othello explains that Brabantio himself used to invite him over all the time so he (Brabantio) could listen to the fantastic tales of Othello's life, including, but not limited to: daring escapes within a hair's breadth of death; being sold into slavery and getting his freedom back; and traveling over the world's caves, deserts, quarries, and hills.
Othello (/oʊˈθɛloʊ/) is a character in Shakespeare's Othello (c. 1601–1604). There, he is simply referred to as the Moor. Othello is a brave and competent soldier of advanced years and Moorish background in the service of the Venetian Republic. He elopes with Desdemona, the beautiful daughter of a respected Venetian senator
OTHELLO O, yes; and went between us very oft. IAGO Indeed! OTHELLO Indeed! ay, indeed: discern'st thou aught in that? . OTHELLO I think thou dost; And, for I know thou'rt full of love and honesty, And weigh'st thy words before thou givest them breath, Therefore these stops of thine fright me the more: For such things in a false disloyal knave Are tricks of custom, but in a man that's just They are close delations, working from the heart That.

Good Michael, look you to the guard to-night: Let's teach ourselves that honourable stop, Not to outsport discretion. Iago hath direction what to do; But, notwithstanding, with my personal eye Will I look to't. Now, by heaven, My blood begins my safer guides to rule; And passion, having my best judgment collied, Assays to lead the way: if I once stir, Or do but lift this arm, the best of you Shall sink in my rebuke. Give me to know How this foul rout began, who set it on; And he that is approved in this offence, Though he had twinn'd with me, both at a birth, Shall lose me.
Desdemona asserts independence from her father and obedience to Othello. Women in this society were always obedient to some man, or at least were supposed to be.

Othello begins in the city of Venice, at night; Roderigo is having a discussion with Iago, who is bitter about being passed up for a military post. Though Iago is seasoned in battle, Cassio, a man of strategy but little practical experience, was named Othello's lieutenant. Iago says that he only serves Othello to further himself, and makes shows of his allegiance only for his own gain; he is playing false, and admits that his nature is not at all what it seems.
Othello, Lonnie Polson Iago, Jeffrey Stegall. Synopsis: The tragedy "Othello" begins on a note of hatred and envy. Iago, passed over for promotion in the Venetian army in favor of Michael Cassio, seeks vengeance against his commander, Othello the Moor. The plot that ensues is brought about entirely by Iago's machinations. Desdemona, daughter of the Venetian senator Brabantio, has secretly married Othello, a gallant general in the service of Venice. To set Brabantio against the Moor, Iago and his dupe, Roderigo, arouse and enrage the forsaken father.
Othello fills in the background: he has been a soldier in the field from the age of seven until nine months ago, when he came back to Venice. He says: "I will a round unvarnished tale deliver, Of my whole course of love" (91), round being a natural shape, like a stone or an apple, and unvarnished, without ornamentation. Act I, Scene 3 is the first of the very long scenes, where much detailed development happens. Event after event is presented in quick succession, giving the impression of accelerated movement and excitement. Time in Othello is presented as passing very quickly, but a careful examination shows almost no markers to indicate what day it is or how each scene relates to the others in terms of time. There are three such long scenes in Othello: this one; Act III, Scene 3, in which Iago makes Othello jealous; and Act V, Scene 2, which contains the murder and explanations.
OTHELLO 57 No, not tonight. DESDEMONA 58 Tomorrow dinner, then? OTHELLO 58 I shall not dine at home; 59 I meet the captains at the citadel. DESDEMONA 60 Why, then, tomorrow night; or Tuesday morn; 61 On Tuesday noon, or night; on Wednesday morn: 62 I prithee, name the time, but let it not 63 Exceed three days.
