ACT I
Scene III. [Venice. A chamber in the Senate House.]

135
Duke. Fetch Desdemona hither,
Oth. Ancient, conduct them; you best know the place.
Exeunt [lago and] two or three [Attendants].
And till she come, as truly as to heaven
I do confess the vices of my blood,
So justly to your grave ears I'll present
140
How I did thrive in this fair lady's love,
And she in mine.
Duke. Say it, Othello.
Oth. Her father loved me, oft invited me;
still questioned me the story of my life
145
From year to year-the battles, sieges, fortunes
That I have passed.
I ran it through, even from my boyish days
To the very moment that he bade me tell it.
Wherein I spake of most disastrous chances,
150
of moving accidents by flood and field;
Of hairbreadth scapes i' th' imminent deadly breach;
Of being taken by the insolent foe
And sold to slavery; of my redemption thence
And portanceIN my travel's history;
155
Wherein of ans vast and deserts idle,
Rough quarries, rocks, and hills whose heads touch heaven,
It was my hint to speak-such was the process;
And of the Cannibals that each other eat,
160
The Anthropophagi, and men whose heads
Do grow beneath their shoulders. This to hear
Would Desdemona seriously incline;
But still the house affairs would draw her thence;
Which ever as she could with haste dispatch,
165
She'd come again, and with a greedy ear
