Week Twenty One: I Do Well Believe ’t
Happy Sunday! Welcome to our weekly celebration of coffee, food, Shakespeare and song. Add your own pot-luck dish by recording and sharing a favorite piece of Shakespeare or Sunday song … and we’ll pair it with a brunchy dish and cup of Joe.
The humble cup of coffee has evolved and completely changed over the centuries. For a beverage that was once just a simple breakfast stable, it has grown into a multibillion-dollar global industry of specialty shops and gourmet coffee drinks.
As coffee has progressed throughout the years, there have been distinct waves that represent significant changes in the industry and also the changes in the global coffee culture.
Today, we are experiencing the third wave of coffee, a period where …
Othello - Act II - Scene I
That Cassio loves her, I do well believe ’t.
That she loves him, ’tis apt and of great credit.
The Moor, howbeit that I endure him not,
Is of a constant, loving, noble nature,
And I dare think he’ll prove to Desdemona
A most dear husband. Now, I do love her too,
Not out of absolute lust—though peradventure
I stand accountant for as great a sin—
But partly led to diet my revenge,
For that I do suspect the lusty Moor
Hath leaped into my seat.
The thought whereof Doth, like a poisonous mineral, gnaw my inwards,
And nothing can or shall content my soul
Till I am evened with him, wife for wife.
Or, failing so, yet that I put the Moor
At least into a jealousy so strong
That judgment cannot cure. Which thing to do,
If this poor trash of Venice, whom I trace
For his quick hunting, stand the putting on,
I’ll have our Michael Cassio on the hip,
Abuse him to the Moor in the right garb
(For I fear Cassio with my night-cape too)
Make the Moor thank me, love me, and reward me
For making him egregiously an ass
And practicing upon his peace and quiet
Even to madness.
'Tis here, but yet confused. Knavery’s plain face is never seen till used.
