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

Lod. You must forsake this room and go with us.
385
Your power and your command is taken off,
And Cassio rules in Cyprus. For this slave,
If there be any cunning cruelty
That can torment him much and hold him long,
It shall be his. You shall close prisoner rest
390
Till that the nature of your fault be known
To the Venetian state. Come, bring away.
Oth. Soft youl a word or two before you go.
I have done the state some service, and they know't
No more of that. I pray you, in your letters,
395
When you shall these unlucky deeds relate,
Speak of me as I am. Nothing extenuate,
Nor set down aught in malice. Then must you speak
Of one that loved not wisely, but too well;
Of one not easily jealous, but, being wrought,
400
Perplexed in the extreme; of one whose hand
(Like the base Indian) threw a pearl away
Richer than all his tribe; of one whose subdued eyes,
Albeit unused to the melting mood,
Drop tears as fast as the Arabian trees
405
Their med'cinable gum. Set you down this;
And say besides that in Aleppo once,
Where a malignant and a turbaned Turk
Beat a Venetian and traduced the state,
I took by the throat the circumcised dog
410
And smote him-thus. He stabs himself.
Lod. O bloody period!
Gra. All that's spoke is marred.
Oth. I kissed thee ere I killed thee. No way but this
Killing myself, to die upon a kiss.
He [falls across Desdemona and] dies.
