Episode 69: The Circumcised Dog, Othello Final Scene


69??? Well, we had to celebrate Drunk Shakespeare style! Here’s to you, Othello and Desdemona! The final scene of Othello is a messy one, but hopefully Iago will get what’s coming to him. It’s unclear. 

We hope you’ve enjoyed Othello. UP NEXT: Julia Caesar

• not believing what you see – Othello looking at Desdemona sleeping and forcing himself to think her a whore

• Iago’s refusal to speak in his own defense

• Othello’s weird last speech – the circumcised dog – telling of what he did to the enemy of the Venetian state and then doing it to himself, ie. he is the enemy of the Venetian state!

• Desdemona’s death is so problematic – how does someone speak after they are “dead?”

• pay attention to the word SLAVE and who it is used for
