I am not merry; but I do beguile the thing I am, by seeming otherwise. Speaker: Desdemona Audience: audience Situation: Desdemona is worried about othello not coming home & causes problems in the future because she acted like she didn’t care
For that I do suspect the lusty moor bath leap’d into my seat; the thought whereof doth, like a poisonous mineral, gnaw my inwards; and nothing can or shall content my soul till I am even’d with him, wife for wife, or failing so, yet that I put the moor at least into jealousy so strong that judgement cannot cure Speaker: Iago Audience: audience Situation: Iago is gonna try to make othello so jealous that he won’t be able to function.
