ACT V
Scene II. [Cyprus. A bedchamber in the Castle.]

Desdemona in her bed. Enter Othello with a light.
Oth. It is the cause, it is the cause, my soul.
Let me not name it to you, you chaste stars!
It is the cause. Yet I'll not shed her blood,
Nor scar that whiter skin of hers than snow,
5
And smooth as monumental alabiaster.
Yet she must die, else she'll betray more men.
Put out the light, and then put out the light.
If I quench thee, thou flaming minister,
I can again thy former light restore,
10
Should I repent me; but once put out thy light,
Thou cunning'st pattern of excelling nature,
I know not where is that Promethean heat
That can thy light relume. When I have plucked the rose,
I cannot give it vital growth again;
15
It needs must wither. I'll smell it on the tree.
He kisses her.
O 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!
20
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.
Des. Who's there? Othello?
Oth. Ay, Desdemona.
25
Des. Will you come to bed, my lord?
Oth. Have you prayed tonight, Desdemon?

V. ii. The play moves rapidly to its climax in this final scene. Othello contemplates the sleeping Desdemona and is tempted by her beauty almost to disbelieve his suspicions. He hardens his heart, however, and when she awakes he accuses her once more of infidelity and finally smothers her. Emilia knocks at the door and is presently admitted. When she discovers that Desdemona is dead, she berates Othello for believing in Desdemona's guilt and calls for help against the murderer. When Iago and others come in response to her cries, Othello justifies his action as a defense of honor and discloses Iago's knowledge of the guilt of his wife with Cassio. Emilia reveals the villainy of her husband, and he stabs her fatally. Othello, now fully conscious of what he has done, tries to kill Iago but is restrained. He stabs himself and dies beside Desdemona. Iago is led away to torture and execution.
