It gives me wonder great as my content
To see you here before me. O my soul’s joy!
If after every tempest come such calms,
May the winds blow till they have waken’d death!
And let the labouring bark climb hills of seas
Olympus-high and duck again as low
As hell’s from heaven! If it were now to die,
‘Twere now to be most happy; for, I fear,
My soul hath her content so absolute
That not another comfort like to this
Succeeds in unknown fate.

- What did you learn about the impact of tone, inflection, volume and pacing in your own rehearsal and oral performance?
- I learned that it helps to slow down and use a tone that has more enthusiasm, but it was hard for me to go all our because I lost my voice.
- What did you understand about the character’s traits and emotions as you were performing?
- I learned that the character Othello is actually shocked and the happiest that he has been in his life.
