Othello was about to inspect Cyprus’ fortifications. He gave Iago some letters. ‘Give these to the ship’s captain, Iago. They’re my reports to the senate. Then come back to me. I’ll be on the battlements.’

‘Very good, my lord,’ said Iago.

‘Come on, then gentlemen, shall we look at these fortifications?’ said Othello.
