The daughter of the Venetian senator Brabantio. Desdemona and Othello are secretly married before the play begins. Desdemona is equally capable of defending her marriage, jesting bawdily with Iago, and responding with dignity to Othello’s incomprehensible jealousy. She firmly believes that he will see that she is true to him, but when she realises, he is about to kill her, she can only feel despair and grief. She dies declaring her love for him.


‘I challenge that I may profess due to the Moor my lord’

‘I saw Othello’s visage in his mind’

‘ Let me go with him’

‘ My dear Othello’

‘Thy solicitor shall rather die than give thy cause away’

‘Why, then, tomorrow night, or Tuesday morn, on Tuesday noon, or night; on Wednesday morn. I prithee name the time, but let it not exceed three days’

‘My noble moor is true of mind and made of no such baseness as jealous creatures are’

‘I pray, talk me of Cassio’

‘My lord is not my lord’

‘I will not stay to offend you’

‘I cannot say ‘whore’: it does abbhor me now that I speak the word’

‘if I do die before thee…’

‘My love doth so approve him’

‘She had a song of willow…she died singing it. that song tonight will not go from my mind’

‘Nobody; I myself. farewell.’
