I recorded lines 175-186 from 4.2 of Shakespeare’s Othello. I played Desdemona when she turns to Iago for help. I learned that tools such as tone, inflection, volume, and pacing can be helpful in displaying what emotion the characters are portraying and can help draw emphasis to certain parts that might need to be emphasized. Tone can also impact how lines are perceived. Through these tools, I learned that Desdemona is very sad and a bit solemn, while also desperate for Iago’s help.
