8. I am…

Why, why did I do it? I should have refused.
Now I have lost my reputation, the immortal part of myself.
I am alone, abandoned, he no longer trusts me, I am an animal.
It’s lost, I’ve lost my reputation
I amThe man who lost his reputation, Michal Cassio
Cassio is a character from Shakespeare’s Othello. He is Othello’s lieutenant until Iago tricks him and Othello loses faith in him, allowing Iago to make Othello think Desdemona cheated on him with Cassio. I have based this on his lines in Act 2 Scene 3, “Reputation, reputation, reputation, I have lost my reputation”.
