I choose Othello by William Shakespeare Act 4 Scene 3 lines 28-37. Playing Desdemona, I learned that I had to be very careful with the tone of my voice and the dramatic tone that I had to use because in this scene Desdemona was talking about hanging herself white singing “Willow.” 

When I was practicing Desdemona’s speech in this particular Act, I felt pity for what she has gone through (accusations from her husband) also the words she said were sad because she was thinking of taking her life because the only men she ever loved claimed that she cheated. 

Desdemona is innocent.
