ACT II
Scene II. [Cyprus. Before Othello's Castle.]

Corne, Desdemona. 'Tis the soldiers' life
265
To have their balmy slumbers waked with strife.
Exeunt [all but lago and Cassio].
lago. What, are you hurt, Lieutenant?
Cas. Ay, past all surgery.
lago. Marry, God forbidl
Cas. Reputation, reputation, reputation! O, I have lost
270
my reputationl I have lost the immortal part of myself,
and what remains is bestial. My reputation, Iago, my reputationl
lago. As I am an honest man, I thought you had received
some bodily wound; there is more sense in that
275
than in reputation. Reputation is an idle and most false
imposition; oft got without merit and lost without deserving.
You have lost no reputation at all unless you repute yourself
such a loser. What, maul there are ways to recover
the General again. You are but now cast in his mood-a
280
punishment more in policy than in malice, even so as one
would beat his offenseless dog to affright an imperious
lion. Sue to him again, and he's yours.
Cas. I will rather sue to be despised than to deceive so
good a commander with so slight, so drunken, and so
285
indiscreet an officer. Drunk? and speak parrot? and
squabble? swagger? swear? and discourse fustian with one's
own shadow? O thou invisible spirit of wine, if thou hast
no name to be known by, let us call thee devil!
Iago. What was he that you followed with your sword?
290
What had he done to you?
Cas. I know not.
lago. Is't possible?
Cas. I remember a mass of things, but nothing distinctly;
a quarrel, but nothing wherefore. O God, that

---
275-76. imposition: that is, it is imposed on one by others.
280. more in policy than in malice: more as an example of discipline than because of personal resentment
281-82. beat his offenseless dog to affright an imperious lion: exert authority over a weak object in order to intimidate one more fearsome; that is, Cassio as opposed to the main force of the army
285. speak parrot: talk senselessly, as a parrot will repeat words without understanding
286. fustian: nonsense
