Episode 63: It’s Guy Love! – Othello, Act 3


Is Iago in love with Othello? Does he hate that about himself? Wouldn’t that be motivation to destroy first everyone else that Othello loves and then the man himself? Hey, it’s a theory we have… see what you think. In this whopper of a scene, Act 3: Scene 3, the antitheses, the opposites in the themes of the play start to swap places. Watch as Othello’s language changes and he begins adopting Iago’s word choices – bestial imagery for sure. It’s a fascinating study in psychological manipulation.

    You have to find a way to teach this stuff!!! This is brilliant. It’s VERY plausible in my estimation.

    I’ll listen to it NOW after I contact Cass.
