ACT I
Scene I. [Venice. A street.]


Enter Roderigo and Iago.

Rod. Tush, never tell me! I take it much unkindly
That thou, Iago, who hast had my purse
As if the strings were thine, shouldst know of this.
Iago. 'Sblood, but you'll not hear mel
5
If ever I did dream of such a matter,
Abhor me.
Rod. 'fhou told'st me thou didst hold him in thy hate.
lago. Despise me if I do not. Three great ones of the
city,
10
In personal suit to make me his lieutenant,
Off-capped to him; and, by the faith of man,
I know my price, I am worth no worse a place.
But he, as loving his own pride and purposes,
Evades them with a bombast circumstance,
15
Horribly stuffed with epithets of war;
And, in conclusion,
Nonsuits my mediators; for, "Certes," says he,
"I have already chose my officer."
And what was he?

---
I. i. Iago reveals his hatred of Othello, caused in part by resentment because Cassio was preferred for the post of Othello's lieutenant while he was given the lesser post of ancient. He induces Roderigo, a disappointed suitor of Desdemona, daughter of the Venetian senator Brabantio, to inform Brabantio of his daughter's elopement with Othello, the Moor, who commands the Venetian forces about to embark for Cyprus to repel the Turks.

4. 'Sblood: God's blood
11. Off-capped to him: that is, pleaded Iago's case with hats in hand, as though they were Othello's inferiors
14. bombast circumstance: high-sounding but ir relevant rhetoric. An obsolete meaning for bombast is "cotton stuffing."
17. Nonsuits: denies the suit of; Certes: certainly
18. chose: chosen, an alternate form of the past participle, often used by Elizabethans.
