Recall that Desdemona’s father invites Othello to his house, where he recounts his life from his boyhood, to his experiences with floods and in battle, through hairbreadth escapes, enslavement, and manumission. These experiences overlayer Desdemona’s empathy. 43 In the phenomenological terms discussed here, Othello and Desdemona establish ‘contact’ through her father’s invitation to Othello. But their meeting is mere happenstance, at least at the beginning. Othello does not enter Desdemona’s father’s home, seeking to woo Desdemona, at first.

20 Because it is a kiss, Chekhov’s story illustrates how erotic ‘contact’ sets up the possibility of amatory interaction. But, because the kiss comes from an anonymous lover, whom Ryabovich can never identify, Chekhov focuses upon a case of contact as stripped away from the follow-up of further acts directed toward a specific object, a specific beloved. The kiss transforms Ryabovich for some months. For the first time, Ryabovich sees himself as someone who might have a love affair ending in marriage.
