LODOVICO

175He did not call, he’s busy in the paper.
Is there division ’twixt my lord and Cassio?

LODOVICO

He didn’t say anything, he’s reading. So there’s a rift between Othello and Cassio?

DESDEMONA

A most unhappy one. I would do much
T' atone them, for the love I bear to Cassio.

DESDEMONA

Yes, unfortunately. I’d do anything to bring them back together, since I really care for Cassio.

OTHELLO

Fire and brimstone!

OTHELLO

Damn it all!

DESDEMONA

    My lord?

DESDEMONA

Excuse me, my lord?

OTHELLO

      Are you wise?

OTHELLO

Are you in your right mind?

DESDEMONA

180What, is he angry?

DESDEMONA

Is he angry?

LODOVICO

    Maybe the letter moved him,
For, as I think, they do command him home,
Deputing Cassio in his government.

LODOVICO

Maybe the letter upset him. I think they want him to go home and appoint Cassio governor in his place.

DESDEMONA

Trust me, I am glad on ’t.

DESDEMONA

I’m happy about that.

OTHELLO

Indeed!

OTHELLO

Oh, are you really!

DESDEMONA

185My lord?

DESDEMONA

My lord?

OTHELLO

I am glad to see you mad.

OTHELLO

I’m glad you’re insane enough to admit it in front of me.

DESDEMONA

Why, sweet Othello—

DESDEMONA

Why, sweet Othello—

OTHELLO

(striking her) Devil!

OTHELLO

(striking her) You devil!

DESDEMONA

I have not deserved this.

DESDEMONA

I haven’t done anything to deserve this!
