Watched the Shakespearian movie for the second time last night with Irene Jacob as Desdemona, Laurence Fishburne as Othello and Kenneth Branagh as Iago.

It is just excellent.... and reminds you about how destructive jealousy is.

"She that was ever fair and never proud,
had tongue at will and yet was never loud,
never lacked gold and yet went never gay,
fled from her wish and yet said 'Now I may.'
She that, being angered, her revenge being nigh,
bade her wrong stay and her displeasure fly.
She that in wisdom never was so frail
to change the cod's head for the salmon's tail.
She that could think and ne'er disclose her mind,
see suitors following and not look behind.
She was a wight, if ever such wight were...
to suckle fools and chronicle small beer."

- spoken by Iago.


  1. Ahh Iago... one of the craftiest villains in literature I think! Thanks for visiting my blog :)
