Othello speaking to his new wife, Desdemona

I chose to voice record Act 2 Scene 1 lines 199-209 of Shakespeare’s play- Othello. In this recording I am reading for Othello. I found it challenging to be able to read 10 straight lines of old English without messing up. In this passage I had to portray the tone of Othello speaking to his new wife, Desdemona. I did my best to make the tone sound calm and when there were parts of the play with exclamation points I raised my voice in order to accurately portray the scene. I felt like a calmer tone with different volumes and expression would be fitting for this part of the play, because of all the feelings of emotions Othello receives when he sees Desdemona.
