2006-07-28 21:49

  Scene Two

  [A bedchamberin the castle:DESDEMONA in bed asleep;alight burning.Enter OTHELLO]

  OTHELLO

  It is the cause,it is the cause,my soul,——Let me not name it to you,you chastestars!——It is the cause.Yet I'll not shedher blood;Nor scarthat whiter skin of hers than snow,And smooth as monumentalalabaster.Yet she must die,else she'll betraymore men.Put out thy light,and then put out the light:If I quenchthee,thou flaming minister,I can again thy former light restore,Should I repentme:but once put out thy light,Thou cunning'stpatternof excellingnature,I know not where is that Prometheanheat That can thy light relume.When I have pluck'dthe rose,I cannot give it vitalgrowth again.It must needs wither :I'll smell it on the tree.

  [Kissing her]

  Ah balmy breath,that dost almost persuade Justice to break her sword!One more,one more.Be thus when thou art dead,and I will kill thee,And love thee after.One more,and this the last:So sweet was ne'er so fatal.I must weep,But they are cruel tears:this sorrow's heavenly;It strikes where it doth love.She wakes.

  DESDEMONA

  Who's there?Othello?

  OTHELLO

  Ay.Desdemona.

  DESDEMONA

  Will you come to bed,my lord?

  OTHELLO

  Have you pray'dto-night,Desdemona?

  DESDEMONA

  Ay,my lord.

  OTHELLO

  If you bethink yourself of any crime Unreconciledas yet to heaven and grace,Solicitfor it straight.

  DESDEMONA

  Alas,my lord,what do you meam by that?

  OTHELLO

  Well,do it,and be brief;I will walk by:I would not kill thy unprepared spirit;No;heaven forfend!I would not kill thy soul.

  DESDEMONA

  Talk you of killing?

  OTHELLO

  Ay,I do.

  DESDEMONA

  Then heaven Have mercyon me!

  OTHELLO

  Amen,with all my heart!

  DESDEMONA

  If you say so,I hope you will not kill me.

  OTHELLO

  Hum!

  DESDEMONA

  And yet I fear you;for you are fatal then When your eyes rollso:why I should fear I know not,Since guiltinessI know not;but yet I feel I fear.

  OTHELLO

  Think on thy sins.

  DESDEMONA

  They are loves I bear to you.

  OTHELLO

  Ay,and for that thou diest.

  DESDEMONA

  That death's unnatural that kills for loving.Alas,why gnawyou so your netherlip?Some bloody passion shakes your very frame:These are portents;but yet I hope,I hope,They do not point on me.

  OTHELLO

  Peace,and be still!

  DESDEMONA

  I will so.What's the matter?

  OTHELLO

  That handkerchief which I so loved and gave thee Thou gavestto Cassio.

  DESDEMONA

  No,by my life and soul!Send forthe man,and ask him.

  OTHELLO

  Sweet soul,take heed,Take heed of perjury;thou art on thy deathbed.

  DESDEMONA

  Ay,but not yet to die.

  OTHELLO

  Yes,presently:Therefore confess thee freely of thy sin;For to deny each article with oath Cannot remove nor chokethe strong conception That I do groanwithal.Thou art to die.

  DESDEMONA

  Then Lord have mercy on me!

  OTHELLO

  I say,amen.

  DESDEMONA

  And have you mercy too!I never did Offendyou in my life;never loved Cassio But with such general warrantyof heaven As I might love:I never gave him token.

  OTHELLO

  By heaven,I saw my handkerchief in's hand.O perjuredwoman!thou dost stonemy heart,And makest me call what I intend to do A murder,which I thought a sacrifice:I saw the handkerchief.

  DESDEMONA

  He found it then;I never gave it him:send for him hither;Let him confess a truth.

  OTHELLO

  He hath confess'd.

  DESDEMONA

  What,my lord?

  OTHELLO

  That he hath used thee.

  DESDEMONA

  How?unlawfully?

  OTHELLO

  Ay.

  DESDEMONA

  He will not say so.

  OTHELLO

  No,his mouth stopp'd;Honest Iago hath ta'en order for't.

  DESDEMONA

  O!my fear interprets:what,is he dead?

  OTHELLO

  Had all his hairs been lives,my great revenge Had stomach for them all.

  DESDEMONA Alas!he is betray'd and I undone.

  OTHELLO Out,strumpet!weep'st thou for him to my face?

  DESDEMONA O,banishme,my lord,but kill me not!

  OTHELLO Down,strumpet!

  DESDEMONA Kill me to-morrow:let me live to-night!

  OTHELLO Nay,if you strive——

  DESDEMONA But half an hour!

  OTHELLO Being done,there is no pause.

  DESDEMONA But while I say one prayer!

  OTHELLO It is too late.[He stifles her]
