10 300 Hmwk Due Friday

Answer the following questions

1) We saw Othello for the first time in the scene we acted out in class.  Is he what you thought he would be?  Is he respected by his associates?

2) How do you know?  Find a line that backs up what you say in # 1 and explain.

3) What contrasts are there between the way Othello is described and the way he looks and behaves when he actually appears?

4)Do you notice basic differences in attitude between Cassio and Iago in their short conversation after Othello exits?

5)Why is Brabantio convinced that Othello must have used witchcraft on his daughter?  Why does he heave difficulty believing his daughter could run to Othello’s “sooty bosom?”

Make sure you’re doing your independent reading.  I’m going to check your word lists for credit this coming Friday.  Remember, this word list is going to be a 100-point assignment – the same amount as that paper from last quarter.  MAKE THIS GOOD.  Jot down words you don’t know as you read.
