Othello First Impression Essay Our first impression of Othello comes from a conversation between Iago Roderigo and Brabantio Our second impression of him comes from Othello himself The first two impressions conflict greatly the second being more accurate than the first Despite the way Othello is described in the first scene he shows himself to be quite different in the second Our first impression of Othello comes from a conversation between Iago Roderigo and Brabantio Iago speaks of Othello with contempt From the very first scene he seems to be a hated character Without even mentioning Othellos name the three men paint a picture of him as a scheming criminal who has stolen and raped Brabantios daughter In calling Othello names like an old black ram 1197 the devil 11100 and a Barbary horse 11125 Iago depicts Othello as evil and dirty Brabantio announces that he would rather that Desdemona was with Roderigo than the Moor when he says O would you had had her 11198 From this first scene the audience gets a very negative impression of Othello--one that differs greatly from the second impression In the second scene when we actually meet Othello we see that he is not at all like how he was portrayed in the first scene He is an honorable and honest man When Iago tries to warn him of Brabantios anger he refuses to go into hiding saying Let him do his spite My services which I have done shall out-tongue his complaints I must be found My parts my title and my perfect soul shall manifest me rightly 1220-37 Othello is confident in his actions and refuses to run away like a coward having done nothing wrong Then when Othellos men meet up with Brabantios men Othellos wise words prevent a bloody conflict He says you shall more command with years than with your weaponsHold your handsWere it my cue to fight I should have known it
