The Drunken
Lieutenant

Suicide of
Despair

Cyprus, Dec. 21, 1539- At the night of the arrival to Cyprus, from the victory of the Turkish defeat, a shocking event occurred. General Othello’s lieutenant Cassio causes a scene and attacks a fellow civilian. He was highly intoxicated while he also attacked Montano, a high-ranking government official. Michael Cassio was heard saying that he has “very poor and unhappy brains for drinking... I am unfortunate in the infirmity, and dare not task my weakness with any more”(II,iii,26). Cassio claims that he doesn’t remember why there was a riot as he says, “I remember a mass of things, but nothing distinctly. A quarrel, but nothing wherefore”(II,iii,232-233).

Cyprus, Dec. 28, 1539 - In the bedroom of Desdemona, high-ranking generals witnessed a riot, which led to a bloodbath. Othello killed his beloved wife Desdemona by believing Iago’s false accusations. Othello committed suicide after finding out he was mistaken, says eyewitness
Lodovico, “O thou Othello, thou was once so good,Fall'n in the practice of a cursèd slave, What shall be said to thee?”(v,ii,304-306). Iago, who is Othello’s ancient , is also responsible for the deaths of

Lodovico, who are government officials, witnessed this dreadful scene. Cyprus and
Venice are in grief today for the loss of these eminent individuals. The Death of the Venetian

Othello. Brabantio was enraged, so he appointed a meeting with the Senators and Duke of
Venice, to decide whether the

Iago, the eyewitness, insists that he has seen everything that has taken place, “I had rather have this tongue cut from my mouth
Than it should do offence to
Michael Cassio. Yet I persuade myself to speak the truth Shall nothing wrong him”(II,iii,184-187). Iago who is one of the soldiers, says that the quarrel had started when him and Montano heard someone cry for help. Cassio was chasing a fellow civilian with his sword trying to kill him. While
Montano restrains Cassio, Iago runs after the civilian but doesn’t catch up to him. When he comes back he sees that
Montano and Cassio had their swords out and Cassio was swearing. Iago then explains how Montano was…
