When everyone else read Hamlet last night, I read the first three scenes of Othello. I am going to let you all know what you missed. So the play starts out in Venice. It opens up with two men talking, Iago and Roderigo. All throughout the first scene they are talking about "the moor." The moor is actually Othello. Othello is a general in the army and is praised among everyone. Iago was supposed to be Othello's next lieutenant but Othello gave that position away to Cassio. When they finish talking they decide to go to Brabantio's house to jack him around. Roderigo is obsessed with Brabantio's daughter and wants to marry her. Little does anyone know that his daughter, Desdemona, recently ran away and married Othello. This upsets her father and Roderigo. Her father claims that Desdemona would not have married anyone unless they enchanted her, kind of like Hamlet's dad. So they all run down to find Othello and Brabantio tries to get him arrested for witchcraft. Well this doesn't work out because Othello needs to go off to war and he's bringing Desdemona. And that is how far I got in Othello.
