The Arc of Iago's Character and Revenge: What are his reasons for beginning? Do we see new aspects of his hatred for Othello?
Analyze the following speech: Iago. Thus do I ever make my fool my purse: 740 For I mine own gain'd knowledge should profane, If I would time expend with such a snipe. But for my sport and profit. I hate the Moor: And it is thought abroad, that 'twixt my sheets He has done my office: I know not if't be true; 745 But I, for mere suspicion in that kind, Will do as if for surety. He holds me well; The better shall my purpose work on him. Cassio's a proper man: let me see now: To get his place and to plume up my will 750 In double knavery—How, how? Let's see:— After some time, to abuse Othello's ear That he is too familiar with his wife. He hath a person and a smooth dispose To be suspected, framed to make women false. 755 The Moor is of a free and open nature, That thinks men honest that but seem to be so, And will as tenderly be led by the nose As asses are. I have't. It is engender'd. Hell and night 760 Must bring this monstrous birth to the world's light. What new motivations surface?
Complete your EOC passage question. Journal 3/12/2014: Is Iago's deceit more or less powerful than destruction through brute force? Explain.
Iago. I am about it; but indeed my invention Comes from my pate as birdlime does from frize; 915 It plucks out brains and all: but my Muse labours, And thus she is deliver'd. If she be fair and wise, fairness and wit, The one's for use, the other useth it. Desdemona. Well praised! How if she be black and witty? 920 Iago. If she be black, and thereto have a wit, She'll find a white that shall her blackness fit. Desdemona. Worse and worse. Emilia. How if fair and foolish? Iago. She never yet was foolish that was fair; 925 For even her folly help'd her to an heir. Desdemona. These are old fond paradoxes to make fools laugh i' the alehouse. What miserable praise hast thou for her that's foul and foolish? Iago. There's none so foul and foolish thereunto, 930 But does foul pranks which fair and wise ones do. Desdemona. O heavy ignorance! thou praisest the worst best. But what praise couldst thou bestow on a deserving woman indeed, one that, in the authority of her merit, did justly put on the vouch of very malice itself? 935 Iago. She that was ever fair and never proud, Had tongue at will and yet was never loud, Never lack'd gold and yet went never gay, Fled from her wish and yet said 'Now I may,' She that being anger'd, her revenge being nigh, 940 Bade her wrong stay and her displeasure fly, She that in wisdom never was so frail To change the cod's head for the salmon's tail; She that could think and ne'er disclose her mind, See suitors following and not look behind, 945 She was a wight, if ever such wight were,— Desdemona. To do what? Iago. To suckle fools and chronicle small beer.

Non-fiction piece: "The Ways We Lie" by Stephanie Ericsson While Othello is a fictional play, the motifs, themes, and social issues which occurred in the Elizabethan world still occur in our modern world. Read the non-fiction piece you have been given. While reading, consider the following questions: * What is the author's purpose in this piece? *How is the piece structured? How does one thought flow into another? *How does the way it is structured move the piece? * How does the author's language affect what the author is saying? * What if the piece was ordered differently? What if it started with the bullet points. How would this change the piece?
