Othello - A Brief Speach of Act 4 Scene 1 This presentation is about the way the event that taken place in the scene tell us something about the characters and their relationships with one another where the power shifts At the beginning of the play Othello is seen as a moor an underclass or a foreigner But still he is one of the most powerful people in Venice He is the general of at that time one of the most powerful armies in the world He is even more powerful than Desdemonas father Even the courts ruled in favor for the Othello to go to Cyprus and marry Desdemona The second to power from Othello is Cassio In the beginning of the play Othello chooses Cassio as his lieutenant to go to Cyprus with him During which he takes Bianca with him Bianca and Cassios s relationship is purely casual there is no love involved When the courts to go with Othello to be married in Cyprus she chooses Emilia Iagos wife as her handmaiden grant Desdemona Iago is also close to Othello but above his battle expertise and his devotion to the Venetian Army Othello chooses Cassio him which angers Iago into stirring contentions in Othellos mind Earlier on in the play we see Cassio being stripped from his position as Lieutenant then the position of a Lieutenant being given to Iago which is all part of his master plan This gains Othellos trust in Iago In the times of Shakespeare it was socially degrading for a man to hear from another man that his wife is cheating on him It was wise then that William Shakespeare included mental manipulation in Act 4 Scene 1 This is done to make the audience think and to see things in each of the characters mind Also in Act 4 Scene 1 we start to see the characteristic pyramid of power
