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

Devour up my d' course. Which I observing,
Took once a li t hour, and found good means
To draw from her a prayer of earnest heart
That I would all my pilgrimage dilate,
170
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
That my Youth suffered. My story being done,
175
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
That heaven had made her such a man. She thanked me;
180
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,
And 1 loved her that she did pity them.
185
This only is the witchcraft I have used.
Here comes the lady: let her witness it.

Enter Desdemona, Iago, Attendants.

Duke. I think this tale would win my daughter too.
Good Brabantio,Take up this mangled matter at the best.
190
Men do their broken weapons rather use
Than their bare hands.
Bra. I pray you hear her speak.
If she confess that she was half the wooer,
Destruction on my head if my bad blame
