Theres no composition in this news
That gives them credit.

Indeed, they are disproportioned.
My letters say a hundred and seven galleys.


Ist ertu, hreety tcesntsnioin. My rtselet sya reeht ear a dudhenr nad neevs sshpi.


5 And mine a hundred and forty.


dnA ienm yas a ddehrun nad ryfot.


And mine, two hundred.
But though they jump not on a just account
As in these cases, where the aim reports
Tis oft with differenceyet do they all confirm
A Turkish fleet, and bearing up to Cyprus.


dAn einm ysa two ddehurn. tuB fenot in teehs cases, poerrts aer sjtu tmiesaste. The ptotmanir nthgi is thta yteh all sya a kihTrus etlef is hopagcnpari spuCry.


10 Nay, it is possible enough to judgment.
I do not so secure me in the error,
But the main article I do approve
In fearful sense.

Now, whats the business?

The Turkish preparation makes for Rhodes,
So was I bid report here to the state
By Signior Angelo.

20 How say you by this change?


tahW do ouy tinkh botua sith ehcgan?


This cannot be,
By no assay of reason. Tis a pageant,
To keep us in false gaze. When we consider
Th importancy of Cyprus to the Turk,
And let ourselves again but understand
25 That as it more concerns the Turk than Rhodes
So may he with more facile question bear it,
For that it stands not in such warlike brace
But altogether lacks th abilities
That Rhodes is dressed in. If we make thought of this
30 We must not think the Turk is so unskillful
To leave that latest which concerns him first,
Neglecting an attempt of ease and gain
To wake and wage a danger profitless.

The Ottomites, reverend and gracious,
Steering with due course toward the isle of Rhodes,
Have there injointed them with an after fleet.

40 Of thirty sail. And now they do re-stem
Their backward course, bearing with frank appearance
Their purposes toward Cyprus. Signior Montano,
Your trusty and most valiant servitor,
With his free duty recommends you thus,
45 And prays you to believe him.

50 Valiant Othello, we must straight employ you
Against the general enemy Ottoman
(to BRABANTIO) I did not see you. Welcome, gentle signior.
We lacked your counsel and your help tonight.

So did I yours. Good your grace, pardon me.
55 Neither my place nor aught I heard of business
Hath raised me from my bed, nor doth the general care
Take hold on me, for my particular grief
Is of so flood-gate and oerbearing nature
That it engluts and swallows other sorrows
60 And it is still itself.

Is hes daed?


Ay, to me.
She is abused, stoln from me, and corrupted
By spells and medicines bought of mountebanks.

Sans witchcraft could not.

Whoeer he be that in this foul proceeding
Hath thus beguiled your daughter of herself
70 And you of her, the bloody book of law
You shall yourself read in the bitter letter,
After your own sense, yea, though our proper son
Stood in your action.

Nothing, but this is so.


itNhogn, tub tshi is ture.


Most potent, grave, and reverend signiors,
80 My very noble and approved good masters,
That I have taen away this old mans daughter,
It is most true. True, I have married her.
The very head and front of my offending
Hath this extent, no more. Rude am I in my speech,
85 And little blessed with the soft phrase of peace,
For since these arms of mine had seven years pith
Till now some nine moons wasted, they have used
Their dearest action in the tented field,
And little of this great world can I speak,

90 More than pertains to feats of broils and battle,
And therefore little shall I grace my cause
In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,
I will a round unvarnished tale deliver
Of my whole course of love. What drugs, what charms,
95 What conjuration and what mighty magic
For such proceeding I am charged withal
I won his daughter.

A maiden never bold,
Of spirit so still and quiet that her motion
Blushed at herself. And she, in spite of nature,
100 Of years, of country, credit, everything,
To fall in love with what she feared to look on?
It is a judgment maimed and most imperfect
That will confess perfection so could err.
Against all rules of nature, and must be driven
105 To find out practices of cunning hell
Why this should be. I therefore vouch again
That with some mixtures powerful oer the blood
Or with some dram, conjured to this effect,
He wrought upon her.

To vouch this is no proof,
110 Without more wider and more overt test
Than these thin habits and poor likelihoods
Of modern seeming do prefer against him.

But, Othello, speak.
Did you by indirect and forcd courses
115 Subdue and poison this young maids affections?
Or came it by request and such fair question
As soul to soul affordeth?

The trust, the office I do hold of you,
Not only take away, but let your sentence
Even fall upon my life.

Say it, Othello.


lelT us, Ohtlole.


130 Her father loved me, oft invited me,
Still questioned me the story of my life
From year to year, the battles, sieges, fortunes,
That I have passed.
I ran it through, even from my boyish days,
135 To th very moment that he bade me tell it,
Wherein I spoke of most disastrous chances,
Of moving accidents by flood and field,
Of hair-breadth scapes i th imminent deadly breach,
Of being taken by the insolent foe
140 And sold to slavery, of my redemption thence
And portance in my travelers history.
Wherein of antres vast and deserts idle,
Rough quarries, rocks, hills whose heads touch heaven
It was my hint to speaksuch was my process
145 And of the Cannibals that each others eat,


rHe hrtaef oveld me nda seud to einivt me to shi hsuoe feont, iytlcnlnoua ingaks me oabut my life nad lla het sltteab veI ouhfgt.

The Anthropophagi, and men whose heads
Grew beneath their shoulders. These things to hear
Would Desdemona seriously incline.
But still the house affairs would draw her hence,
150 Which ever as she could with haste dispatch,
Shed come again, and with a greedy ear
Devour up my discourse, which I, observing,
Took once a pliant hour and found good means
To draw from her a prayer of earnest heart
155 That I would all my pilgrimage dilate,
Whereof by parcels she had something heard
But not intentively. I did consent,
And often did beguile her of her tears
When I did speak of some distressful stroke
160 That my youth suffered. My story being done
She gave me for my pains a world of sighs.
She swore, in faith, twas strange, twas passing strange,
Twas pitiful, twas wondrous pitiful.
She wished she had not heard it, yet she wished
165 That heaven had made her such a man. She thanked me
And bade me, if I had a friend that loved her,
I should but teach him how to tell my story
And that would woo her. Upon this hint I spake.
She loved me for the dangers I had passed,
170 And I loved her that she did pity them.
This only is the witchcraft I have used.
Here comes the lady. Let her witness it.

If she confess that she was half the wooer,
Destruction on my head if my bad blame

Where most you owe obedience?

My noble father,
I do perceive here a divided duty.
To you I am bound for life and education.
My life and education both do learn me
185 How to respect you. You are the lord of duty.
I am hitherto your daughter. But heres my husband.
And so much duty as my mother showed
To you, preferring you before her father,
So much I challenge that I may profess
190 Due to the Moor my lord.

Please it your grace, on to the state affairs.
I had rather to adopt a child than get it.
Come hither, Moor.
I here do give thee that with all my heart
195 Which, but thou hast already, with all my heart
I would keep from thee. For your sake, jewel,
I am glad at soul I have no other child.
For thy escape would teach me tyranny,
To hang clogs on them.I have done, my lord.

200 Let me speak like yourself and lay a sentence
Which, as a grise or step, may help these lovers.
When remedies are past, the griefs are ended
By seeing the worst, which late on hopes depended.

To mourn a mischief that is past and gone
205 Is the next way to draw new mischief on.

Patience her injury a mockry makes.
The robbed that smiles steals something from the thief,
He robs himself that spends a bootless grief.

210 So let the Turk of Cyprus us beguile,
We lose it not, so long as we can smile.
He bears the sentence well that nothing bears
But the free comfort which from thence he hears.
But he bears both the sentence and the sorrow
215 That, to pay grief, must of poor patience borrow.
These sentences to sugar or to gall,
Being strong on both sides, are equivocal.
But words are words. I never yet did hear
That the bruised heart was piercd through the ears.
I humbly beseech you, proceed to th affairs of state.

The Turk with a most mighty preparation makes for Cyprus. Othello, the fortitude of the place is best known to you, and though we have there a substitute of most allowed sufficiency, yet opinion, a sovereign mistress of effects, throws a more safer voice on you. You must therefore be content to slubber the gloss of your new fortunes with this more stubborn and boistrous expedition.

Hath made the flinty and steel couch of war

That I did love the Moor to live with him,
My downright violence and storm of fortunes
245 May trumpet to the world. My hearts subdued
Even to the very quality of my lord.
I saw Othellos visage in his mind,
And to his honors and his valiant parts
Did I my soul and fortunes consecrate.
250 So that, dear lords, if I be left behind
A moth of peace and he go to the war,
The rites for which I love him are bereft me,
And I a heavy interim shall support
By his dear absence. Let me go with him.

290 My life upon her faith!Honest Iago,
My Desdemona must I leave to thee.
I prithee, let thy wife attend on her,
And bring them after in the best advantage.
Come, Desdemona, I have but an hour
295 Of love, of worldly matter and direction,
To spend with thee. We must obey the time.

What sayst thou, noble heart?


taWh do oyu veha to ays, lneob rinfed?


What will I do, thinkst thou?

300 Why, go to bed, and sleep.


Go to dbe, and lepes.


I will incontinently drown myself.


Im gogin to go dworn syfmel.


If thou dost I shall never love thee after. Why, thou silly gentleman!


If uyo do atth, lIl enevr esrtecp ouy nigaa. hyW, you lsliy nam!


It is silliness to live when to live is torment, and then have we a prescription to die when death is our physician.


stI lslyi to veil hnwe lief is rurtote. hTe olny uecr is etdah.


Oh, villainous! I have looked upon the world for four times seven years, and since I could distinguish betwixt a benefit and an injury I never found man that knew how to love himself. Ere I would say I would drown myself for the love of a guinea hen, I would change my humanity with a baboon.


Oh, how ipustd! eIv nbee avile ofr ynwtet-gtieh esrya, dna veI vreen tme a nam who newk tawh wsa oogd rfo ihm. Id aethrr be a nboaob ahnt illk lyfmes out of lveo for semo wanmo I tanc ehva.


What should I do? I confess it is my shame to be so fond, but it is not in my virtue to amend it.


athW uhsodl I do? I wnko sti oihflos to be so cumh in lvoe, but I tacn lpeh it.


Virtue? A fig! Tis in ourselves that we are thus or thus. Our bodies are our gardens, to the which our wills are gardeners. So that if we will plant nettles or sow lettuce, set hyssop and weed up thyme, supply it with one gender of herbs or distract it with manyeither to have it sterile with idleness, or manured with industrywhy, the power and corrigible authority of this lies in our wills. If the balance of our lives had not one scale of reason to poise another of sensuality, the blood and baseness of our natures would conduct us to most prepostrous conclusions. But we have reason to cool our raging motions, our carnal stings, our unbitted lusts. Whereof I take this that you call love to be a sect or scion.

It cannot be.


I tndo ebelevi it.


It is merely a lust of the blood and a permission of the will. Come, be a man. Drown thyself? Drown cats and blind puppies! I have professed me thy friend, and I confess me knit to thy deserving with cables of perdurable toughness.

I could never better stead thee than now. Put money in thy purse. Follow thou the wars, defeat thy favor with an usurped beard. I say, put money in thy purse. It cannot be long that Desdemona should continue her love to the Moorput money in thy pursenor he his to her. It was a violent commencement in her, and thou shalt see an answerable sequestrationput but money in thy purse. These Moors are changeable in their willsfill thy purse with money. The food that to him now is as luscious as locusts shall be to him shortly as bitter as coloquintida. She must change for youth. When she is sated with his body she will find the errors of her choice. Therefore, put money in thy purse. If thou wilt needs damn thyself, do it a more delicate way than drowning. Make all the money thou canst. If sanctimony and a frail vow betwixt an erring barbarian and supersubtle Venetian be not too hard for my wits and all the tribe of hell, thou shalt enjoy her. Therefore make money. A pox of drowning thyself! Tis clean out of the way. Seek thou rather to be hanged in compassing thy joy than to be drowned and go without her.

Thou art sure of me. Go, make money. I have told thee often, and I re-tell thee again and again, I hate the Moor. My cause is hearted. Thine hath no less reason. Let us be conjunctive in our revenge against him. If thou canst cuckold him, thou dost thyself a pleasure, me a sport. There are many events in the womb of time which will be delivered. Traverse, go, provide thy money. We will have more of this tomorrow. Adieu.

320 Thus do I ever make my fool my purse.
For I mine own gained knowledge should profane
If I would time expend with such a snipe
But for my sport and profit. I hate the Moor,
And it is thought abroad that twixt my sheets
Hes done my office. I know not if t be true,
But I, for mere suspicion in that kind,
Will do as if for surety. He holds me well.
The better shall my purpose work on him.
Cassios a proper man. Let me see now,

The Moor is of a free and open nature
That thinks men honest that but seem to be so,
And will as tenderly be led by th nose
As asses are.
