-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I learn in this letter that Don Peter of Arragon</LINE>
-<LINE>comes this night to Messina.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Messenger</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>He is very near by this: he was not three leagues off</LINE>
-<LINE>when I left him.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>How many gentlemen have you lost in this action?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Messenger</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>But few of any sort, and none of name.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>A victory is twice itself when the achiever brings</LINE>
-<LINE>home full numbers. I find here that Don Peter hath</LINE>
-<LINE>bestowed much honour on a young Florentine called Claudio.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Messenger</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Much deserved on his part and equally remembered by</LINE>
-<LINE>Don Pedro: he hath borne himself beyond the</LINE>
-<LINE>promise of his age, doing, in the figure of a lamb,</LINE>
-<LINE>the feats of a lion: he hath indeed better</LINE>
-<LINE>bettered expectation than you must expect of me to</LINE>
-<LINE>tell you how.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>He hath an uncle here in Messina will be very much</LINE>
-<LINE>glad of it.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Messenger</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I have already delivered him letters, and there</LINE>
-<LINE>appears much joy in him; even so much that joy could</LINE>
-<LINE>not show itself modest enough without a badge of</LINE>
-<LINE>bitterness.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Did he break out into tears?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Messenger</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>In great measure.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>A kind overflow of kindness: there are no faces</LINE>
-<LINE>truer than those that are so washed. How much</LINE>
-<LINE>better is it to weep at joy than to joy at weeping!</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I pray you, is Signior Mountanto returned from the</LINE>
-<LINE>wars or no?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Messenger</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I know none of that name, lady: there was none such</LINE>
-<LINE>in the army of any sort.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>What is he that you ask for, niece?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>HERO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>My cousin means Signior Benedick of Padua.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Messenger</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>O, he's returned; and as pleasant as ever he was.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>He set up his bills here in Messina and challenged</LINE>
-<LINE>Cupid at the flight; and my uncle's fool, reading</LINE>
-<LINE>the challenge, subscribed for Cupid, and challenged</LINE>
-<LINE>him at the bird-bolt. I pray you, how many hath he</LINE>
-<LINE>killed and eaten in these wars? But how many hath</LINE>
-<LINE>he killed? for indeed I promised to eat all of his killing.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Faith, niece, you tax Signior Benedick too much;</LINE>
-<LINE>but he'll be meet with you, I doubt it not.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Messenger</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>He hath done good service, lady, in these wars.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>You had musty victual, and he hath holp to eat it:</LINE>
-<LINE>he is a very valiant trencherman; he hath an</LINE>
-<LINE>excellent stomach.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Messenger</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>And a good soldier too, lady.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>And a good soldier to a lady: but what is he to a lord?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Messenger</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>A lord to a lord, a man to a man; stuffed with all</LINE>
-<LINE>honourable virtues.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>It is so, indeed; he is no less than a stuffed man:</LINE>
-<LINE>but for the stuffing,--well, we are all mortal.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>You must not, sir, mistake my niece. There is a</LINE>
-<LINE>kind of merry war betwixt Signior Benedick and her:</LINE>
-<LINE>they never meet but there's a skirmish of wit</LINE>
-<LINE>between them.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Alas! he gets nothing by that. In our last</LINE>
-<LINE>conflict four of his five wits went halting off, and</LINE>
-<LINE>now is the whole man governed with one: so that if</LINE>
-<LINE>he have wit enough to keep himself warm, let him</LINE>
-<LINE>bear it for a difference between himself and his</LINE>
-<LINE>horse; for it is all the wealth that he hath left,</LINE>
-<LINE>to be known a reasonable creature. Who is his</LINE>
-<LINE>companion now? He hath every month a new sworn brother.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Messenger</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Is't possible?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Very easily possible: he wears his faith but as</LINE>
-<LINE>the fashion of his hat; it ever changes with the</LINE>
-<LINE>next block.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Messenger</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I see, lady, the gentleman is not in your books.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>No; an he were, I would burn my study. But, I pray</LINE>
-<LINE>you, who is his companion? Is there no young</LINE>
-<LINE>squarer now that will make a voyage with him to the devil?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Messenger</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>He is most in the company of the right noble Claudio.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>O Lord, he will hang upon him like a disease: he</LINE>
-<LINE>is sooner caught than the pestilence, and the taker</LINE>
-<LINE>runs presently mad. God help the noble Claudio! if</LINE>
-<LINE>he have caught the Benedick, it will cost him a</LINE>
-<LINE>thousand pound ere a' be cured.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Messenger</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I will hold friends with you, lady.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Do, good friend.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>You will never run mad, niece.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>No, not till a hot January.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Messenger</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Don Pedro is approached.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-
-<STAGEDIR>Enter DON PEDRO, DON JOHN, CLAUDIO, BENEDICK,
-and BALTHASAR</STAGEDIR>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Good Signior Leonato, you are come to meet your</LINE>
-<LINE>trouble: the fashion of the world is to avoid</LINE>
-<LINE>cost, and you encounter it.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Never came trouble to my house in the likeness of</LINE>
-<LINE>your grace: for trouble being gone, comfort should</LINE>
-<LINE>remain; but when you depart from me, sorrow abides</LINE>
-<LINE>and happiness takes his leave.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>You embrace your charge too willingly. I think this</LINE>
-<LINE>is your daughter.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Her mother hath many times told me so.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Were you in doubt, sir, that you asked her?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Signior Benedick, no; for then were you a child.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>You have it full, Benedick: we may guess by this</LINE>
-<LINE>what you are, being a man. Truly, the lady fathers</LINE>
-<LINE>herself. Be happy, lady; for you are like an</LINE>
-<LINE>honourable father.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>If Signior Leonato be her father, she would not</LINE>
-<LINE>have his head on her shoulders for all Messina, as</LINE>
-<LINE>like him as she is.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I wonder that you will still be talking, Signior</LINE>
-<LINE>Benedick: nobody marks you.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>What, my dear Lady Disdain! are you yet living?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Is it possible disdain should die while she hath</LINE>
-<LINE>such meet food to feed it as Signior Benedick?</LINE>
-<LINE>Courtesy itself must convert to disdain, if you come</LINE>
-<LINE>in her presence.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Then is courtesy a turncoat. But it is certain I</LINE>
-<LINE>am loved of all ladies, only you excepted: and I</LINE>
-<LINE>would I could find in my heart that I had not a hard</LINE>
-<LINE>heart; for, truly, I love none.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>A dear happiness to women: they would else have</LINE>
-<LINE>been troubled with a pernicious suitor. I thank God</LINE>
-<LINE>and my cold blood, I am of your humour for that: I</LINE>
-<LINE>had rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man</LINE>
-<LINE>swear he loves me.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>God keep your ladyship still in that mind! so some</LINE>
-<LINE>gentleman or other shall 'scape a predestinate</LINE>
-<LINE>scratched face.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Scratching could not make it worse, an 'twere such</LINE>
-<LINE>a face as yours were.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Well, you are a rare parrot-teacher.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>A bird of my tongue is better than a beast of yours.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I would my horse had the speed of your tongue, and</LINE>
-<LINE>so good a continuer. But keep your way, i' God's</LINE>
-<LINE>name; I have done.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>You always end with a jade's trick: I know you of old.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>That is the sum of all, Leonato. Signior Claudio</LINE>
-<LINE>and Signior Benedick, my dear friend Leonato hath</LINE>
-<LINE>invited you all. I tell him we shall stay here at</LINE>
-<LINE>the least a month; and he heartily prays some</LINE>
-<LINE>occasion may detain us longer. I dare swear he is no</LINE>
-<LINE>hypocrite, but prays from his heart.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>If you swear, my lord, you shall not be forsworn.</LINE>
-<STAGEDIR>To DON JOHN</STAGEDIR>
-<LINE>Let me bid you welcome, my lord: being reconciled to</LINE>
-<LINE>the prince your brother, I owe you all duty.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON JOHN</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I thank you: I am not of many words, but I thank</LINE>
-<LINE>you.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Please it your grace lead on?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Your hand, Leonato; we will go together.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-
-<STAGEDIR>Exeunt all except BENEDICK and CLAUDIO</STAGEDIR>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Benedick, didst thou note the daughter of Signior Leonato?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I noted her not; but I looked on her.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Is she not a modest young lady?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Do you question me, as an honest man should do, for</LINE>
-<LINE>my simple true judgment; or would you have me speak</LINE>
-<LINE>after my custom, as being a professed tyrant to their sex?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>No; I pray thee speak in sober judgment.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Why, i' faith, methinks she's too low for a high</LINE>
-<LINE>praise, too brown for a fair praise and too little</LINE>
-<LINE>for a great praise: only this commendation I can</LINE>
-<LINE>afford her, that were she other than she is, she</LINE>
-<LINE>were unhandsome; and being no other but as she is, I</LINE>
-<LINE>do not like her.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Thou thinkest I am in sport: I pray thee tell me</LINE>
-<LINE>truly how thou likest her.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Would you buy her, that you inquire after her?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Can the world buy such a jewel?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Yea, and a case to put it into. But speak you this</LINE>
-<LINE>with a sad brow? or do you play the flouting Jack,</LINE>
-<LINE>to tell us Cupid is a good hare-finder and Vulcan a</LINE>
-<LINE>rare carpenter? Come, in what key shall a man take</LINE>
-<LINE>you, to go in the song?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>In mine eye she is the sweetest lady that ever I</LINE>
-<LINE>looked on.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I can see yet without spectacles and I see no such</LINE>
-<LINE>matter: there's her cousin, an she were not</LINE>
-<LINE>possessed with a fury, exceeds her as much in beauty</LINE>
-<LINE>as the first of May doth the last of December. But I</LINE>
-<LINE>hope you have no intent to turn husband, have you?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I would scarce trust myself, though I had sworn the</LINE>
-<LINE>contrary, if Hero would be my wife.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Is't come to this? In faith, hath not the world</LINE>
-<LINE>one man but he will wear his cap with suspicion?</LINE>
-<LINE>Shall I never see a bachelor of three-score again?</LINE>
-<LINE>Go to, i' faith; an thou wilt needs thrust thy neck</LINE>
-<LINE>into a yoke, wear the print of it and sigh away</LINE>
-<LINE>Sundays. Look Don Pedro is returned to seek you.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-
-<STAGEDIR>Re-enter DON PEDRO</STAGEDIR>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>What secret hath held you here, that you followed</LINE>
-<LINE>not to Leonato's?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I would your grace would constrain me to tell.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I charge thee on thy allegiance.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>You hear, Count Claudio: I can be secret as a dumb</LINE>
-<LINE>man; I would have you think so; but, on my</LINE>
-<LINE>allegiance, mark you this, on my allegiance. He is</LINE>
-<LINE>in love. With who? now that is your grace's part.</LINE>
-<LINE>Mark how short his answer is;--With Hero, Leonato's</LINE>
-<LINE>short daughter.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>If this were so, so were it uttered.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Like the old tale, my lord: 'it is not so, nor</LINE>
-<LINE>'twas not so, but, indeed, God forbid it should be</LINE>
-<LINE>so.'</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>If my passion change not shortly, God forbid it</LINE>
-<LINE>should be otherwise.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Amen, if you love her; for the lady is very well worthy.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>You speak this to fetch me in, my lord.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>By my troth, I speak my thought.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>And, in faith, my lord, I spoke mine.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>And, by my two faiths and troths, my lord, I spoke mine.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>That I love her, I feel.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>That she is worthy, I know.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>That I neither feel how she should be loved nor</LINE>
-<LINE>know how she should be worthy, is the opinion that</LINE>
-<LINE>fire cannot melt out of me: I will die in it at the stake.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Thou wast ever an obstinate heretic in the despite</LINE>
-<LINE>of beauty.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>And never could maintain his part but in the force</LINE>
-<LINE>of his will.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>That a woman conceived me, I thank her; that she</LINE>
-<LINE>brought me up, I likewise give her most humble</LINE>
-<LINE>thanks: but that I will have a recheat winded in my</LINE>
-<LINE>forehead, or hang my bugle in an invisible baldrick,</LINE>
-<LINE>all women shall pardon me. Because I will not do</LINE>
-<LINE>them the wrong to mistrust any, I will do myself the</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>With anger, with sickness, or with hunger, my lord,</LINE>

-<LINE>with love than I will get again with drinking, pick</LINE>
-<LINE>out mine eyes with a ballad-maker's pen and hang me</LINE>
-<LINE>up at the door of a brothel-house for the sign of</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>O, my lord,</LINE>
-<LINE>When you went onward on this ended action,</LINE>
-<LINE>I look'd upon her with a soldier's eye,</LINE>
-<LINE>That liked, but had a rougher task in hand</LINE>
-<LINE>Than to drive liking to the name of love:</LINE>
-<LINE>But now I am return'd and that war-thoughts</LINE>
-<LINE>Have left their places vacant, in their rooms</LINE>
-<LINE>Come thronging soft and delicate desires,</LINE>
-<LINE>All prompting me how fair young Hero is,</LINE>
-<LINE>Saying, I liked her ere I went to wars.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Thou wilt be like a lover presently</LINE>

-<LINE>If thou dost love fair Hero, cherish it,</LINE>
-<LINE>And I will break with her and with her father,</LINE>
-<LINE>And thou shalt have her. Was't not to this end</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>How sweetly you do minister to love,</LINE>

-<LINE>What need the bridge much broader than the flood?</LINE>

-<LINE>I know we shall have revelling to-night:</LINE>
-<LINE>I will assume thy part in some disguise</LINE>
-<LINE>And tell fair Hero I am Claudio,</LINE>
-<LINE>And in her bosom I'll unclasp my heart</LINE>

-<LINE>How now, brother! Where is my cousin, your son?</LINE>
-<LINE>hath he provided this music?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>ANTONIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>He is very busy about it. But, brother, I can tell</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Are they good?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>ANTONIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>As the event stamps them: but they have a good</LINE>
-<LINE>cover; they show well outward. The prince and Count</LINE>
-<LINE>Claudio, walking in a thick-pleached alley in mine</LINE>
-<LINE>orchard, were thus much overheard by a man of mine:</LINE>
-<LINE>the prince discovered to Claudio that he loved my</LINE>
-<LINE>niece your daughter and meant to acknowledge it</LINE>
-<LINE>this night in a dance: and if he found her</LINE>
-<LINE>accordant, he meant to take the present time by the</LINE>
-<LINE>top and instantly break with you of it.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Hath the fellow any wit that told you this?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-

-<SPEAKER>ANTONIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>A good sharp fellow: I will send for him; and</LINE>
-<LINE>question him yourself.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>No, no; we will hold it as a dream till it appear</LINE>
-<LINE>itself: but I will acquaint my daughter withal,</LINE>
-<LINE>that she may be the better prepared for an answer,</LINE>
-<LINE>if peradventure this be true. Go you and tell her of it.</LINE>
-<STAGEDIR>Enter Attendants</STAGEDIR>
-<LINE>Cousins, you know what you have to do. O, I cry you</LINE>

-<LINE>What the good-year, my lord! why are you thus out</LINE>
-<LINE>of measure sad?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON JOHN</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>There is no measure in the occasion that breeds;</LINE>
-<LINE>therefore the sadness is without limit.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CONRADE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>You should hear reason.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<SPEAKER>DON JOHN</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>And when I have heard it, what blessing brings it?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CONRADE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>If not a present remedy, at least a patient</LINE>
-<LINE>sufferance.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON JOHN</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I wonder that thou, being, as thou sayest thou art,</LINE>
-<LINE>born under Saturn, goest about to apply a moral</LINE>
-<LINE>medicine to a mortifying mischief. I cannot hide</LINE>
-<LINE>what I am: I must be sad when I have cause and smile</LINE>
-<LINE>at no man's jests, eat when I have stomach and wait</LINE>
-<LINE>for no man's leisure, sleep when I am drowsy and</LINE>
-<LINE>tend on no man's business, laugh when I am merry and</LINE>
-<LINE>claw no man in his humour.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CONRADE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Yea, but you must not make the full show of this</LINE>
-<LINE>till you may do it without controlment. You have of</LINE>
-<LINE>late stood out against your brother, and he hath</LINE>
-<LINE>ta'en you newly into his grace; where it is</LINE>
-<LINE>impossible you should take true root but by the</LINE>
-<LINE>fair weather that you make yourself: it is needful</LINE>
-<LINE>that you frame the season for your own harvest.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON JOHN</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I had rather be a canker in a hedge than a rose in</LINE>
-<LINE>his grace, and it better fits my blood to be</LINE>
-<LINE>disdained of all than to fashion a carriage to rob</LINE>
-<LINE>love from any: in this, though I cannot be said to</LINE>
-<LINE>be a flattering honest man, it must not be denied</LINE>
-<LINE>but I am a plain-dealing villain. I am trusted with</LINE>
-<LINE>a muzzle and enfranchised with a clog; therefore I</LINE>
-<LINE>have decreed not to sing in my cage. If I had my</LINE>
-<LINE>mouth, I would bite; if I had my liberty, I would do</LINE>
-<LINE>my liking: in the meantime let me be that I am and</LINE>
-<LINE>seek not to alter me.</LINE>

-<LINE>Can you make no use of your discontent?</LINE>

-<LINE>He were an excellent man that were made just in the</LINE>

-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>With a good leg and a good foot, uncle, and money</LINE>

-<LINE>In faith, she's too curst.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Too curst is more than curst: I shall lessen God's</LINE>
-<LINE>sending that way; for it is said, 'God sends a curst</LINE>
-<LINE>cow short horns;' but to a cow too curst he sends none.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>So, by being too curst, God will send you no horns.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Just, if he send me no husband; for the which</LINE>
-<LINE>blessing I am at him upon my knees every morning and</LINE>
-<LINE>evening. Lord, I could not endure a husband with a</LINE>
-<LINE>beard on his face: I had rather lie in the woollen.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>You may light on a husband that hath no beard.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>What should I do with him? dress him in my apparel</LINE>
-<LINE>and make him my waiting-gentlewoman? He that hath a</LINE>
-<LINE>beard is more than a youth, and he that hath no</LINE>
-<LINE>beard is less than a man: and he that is more than</LINE>
-<LINE>a youth is not for me, and he that is less than a</LINE>
-<LINE>man, I am not for him: therefore, I will even take</LINE>
-<LINE>sixpence in earnest of the bear-ward, and lead his</LINE>
-<LINE>apes into hell.</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Well, then, go you into hell?</LINE>

-<LINE>me, like an old cuckold, with horns on his head, and</LINE>
-<LINE>say 'Get you to heaven, Beatrice, get you to</LINE>
-<LINE>heaven; here's no place for you maids:' so deliver</LINE>
-<LINE>I up my apes, and away to Saint Peter for the</LINE>

-<LINE>Yes, faith; it is my cousin's duty to make curtsy</LINE>

-<LINE>Not till God make men of some other metal than</LINE>

-<LINE>overmastered with a pierce of valiant dust? to make</LINE>
-<LINE>an account of her life to a clod of wayward marl?</LINE>
-<LINE>No, uncle, I'll none: Adam's sons are my brethren;</LINE>

-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>The fault will be in the music, cousin, if you be</LINE>
-<LINE>not wooed in good time: if the prince be too</LINE>
-<LINE>important, tell him there is measure in every thing</LINE>
-<LINE>and so dance out the answer. For, hear me, Hero:</LINE>
-<LINE>wooing, wedding, and repenting, is as a Scotch jig,</LINE>
-<LINE>a measure, and a cinque pace: the first suit is hot</LINE>
-<LINE>and hasty, like a Scotch jig, and full as</LINE>
-<LINE>fantastical; the wedding, mannerly-modest, as a</LINE>
-<LINE>measure, full of state and ancientry; and then comes</LINE>
-<LINE>repentance and, with his bad legs, falls into the</LINE>
-<LINE>cinque pace faster and faster, till he sink into his grave.</LINE>

-<LINE>Let every eye negotiate for itself</LINE>

-<LINE>Troth, my lord, I have played the part of Lady Fame.</LINE>
-<LINE>I found him here as melancholy as a lodge in a</LINE>
-<LINE>warren: I told him, and I think I told him true,</LINE>
-<LINE>that your grace had got the good will of this young</LINE>
-<LINE>lady; and I offered him my company to a willow-tree,</LINE>
-<LINE>either to make him a garland, as being forsaken, or</LINE>
-<LINE>to bind him up a rod, as being worthy to be whipped.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-

-<LINE>To be whipped! What's his fault?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>The flat transgression of a schoolboy, who, being</LINE>

-<LINE>Wilt thou make a trust a transgression? The</LINE>
-<LINE>transgression is in the stealer.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Yet it had not been amiss the rod had been made,</LINE>
-<LINE>and the garland too; for the garland he might have</LINE>
-<LINE>worn himself, and the rod he might have bestowed on</LINE>
-<LINE>you, who, as I take it, have stolen his birds' nest.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>O, she misused me past the endurance of a block!</LINE>
-<LINE>an oak but with one green leaf on it would have</LINE>
-<LINE>answered her; my very visor began to assume life and</LINE>
-<LINE>scold with her. She told me, not thinking I had been</LINE>
-<LINE>myself, that I was the prince's jester, that I was</LINE>
-<LINE>duller than a great thaw; huddling jest upon jest</LINE>
-<LINE>with such impossible conveyance upon me that I stood</LINE>
-<LINE>like a man at a mark, with a whole army shooting at</LINE>
-<LINE>me. She speaks poniards, and every word stabs:</LINE>
-<LINE>if her breath were as terrible as her terminations,</LINE>
-<LINE>there were no living near her; she would infect to</LINE>
-<LINE>the north star. I would not marry her, though she</LINE>
-<LINE>were endowed with all that Adam bad left him before</LINE>
-<LINE>he transgressed: she would have made Hercules have</LINE>
-<LINE>turned spit, yea, and have cleft his club to make</LINE>
-<LINE>the fire too. Come, talk not of her: you shall find</LINE>
-<LINE>her the infernal Ate in good apparel. I would to God</LINE>
-<LINE>some scholar would conjure her; for certainly, while</LINE>
-<LINE>she is here, a man may live as quiet in hell as in a</LINE>
-<LINE>sanctuary; and people sin upon purpose, because they</LINE>

-<LINE>Yea, my lord; but I can cross it.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON JOHN</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Any bar, any cross, any impediment will be</LINE>
-<LINE>medicinable to me: I am sick in displeasure to him,</LINE>
-<LINE>and whatsoever comes athwart his affection ranges</LINE>
-<LINE>evenly with mine. How canst thou cross this marriage?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>

-<LINE>Not honestly, my lord; but so covertly that no</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>DON JOHN</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Show me briefly how.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BORACHIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I think I told your lordship a year since, how much</LINE>
-<LINE>I am in the favour of Margaret, the waiting</LINE>
-<LINE>gentlewoman to Hero.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON JOHN</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I remember.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BORACHIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I can, at any unseasonable instant of the night,</LINE>
-<LINE>appoint her to look out at her lady's chamber window.</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>DON JOHN</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>What life is in that, to be the death of this marriage?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BORACHIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>The poison of that lies in you to temper. Go you to</LINE>
-<LINE>the prince your brother; spare not to tell him that</LINE>
-<LINE>he hath wronged his honour in marrying the renowned</LINE>
-<LINE>Claudio--whose estimation do you mightily hold</LINE>
-<LINE>up--to a contaminated stale, such a one as Hero.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON JOHN</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>What proof shall I make of that?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BORACHIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Proof enough to misuse the prince, to vex Claudio,</LINE>
-<LINE>to undo Hero and kill Leonato. Look you for any</LINE>
-<LINE>other issue?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON JOHN</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Only to despite them, I will endeavour any thing.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BORACHIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Go, then; find me a meet hour to draw Don Pedro and</LINE>
-<LINE>the Count Claudio alone: tell them that you know</LINE>
-<LINE>that Hero loves me; intend a kind of zeal both to the</LINE>
-<LINE>prince and Claudio, as,--in love of your brother's</LINE>
-<LINE>honour, who hath made this match, and his friend's</LINE>
-<LINE>reputation, who is thus like to be cozened with the</LINE>
-<LINE>semblance of a maid,--that you have discovered</LINE>
-<LINE>thus. They will scarcely believe this without trial:</LINE>
-<LINE>offer them instances; which shall bear no less</LINE>
-<LINE>likelihood than to see me at her chamber-window,</LINE>
-<LINE>hear me call Margaret Hero, hear Margaret term me</LINE>
-<LINE>Claudio; and bring them to see this the very night</LINE>
-<LINE>before the intended wedding,--for in the meantime I</LINE>
-<LINE>will so fashion the matter that Hero shall be</LINE>
-<LINE>absent,--and there shall appear such seeming truth</LINE>
-<LINE>of Hero's disloyalty that jealousy shall be called</LINE>
-<LINE>assurance and all the preparation overthrown.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON JOHN</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Grow this to what adverse issue it can, I will put</LINE>
-<LINE>it in practise. Be cunning in the working this, and</LINE>
-<LINE>thy fee is a thousand ducats.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BORACHIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Be you constant in the accusation, and my cunning</LINE>

-<STAGEDIR>Exit Boy</STAGEDIR>
-<LINE>I do much wonder that one man, seeing how much</LINE>
-<LINE>another man is a fool when he dedicates his</LINE>
-<LINE>behaviors to love, will, after he hath laughed at</LINE>
-<LINE>such shallow follies in others, become the argument</LINE>
-<LINE>of his own scorn by failing in love: and such a man</LINE>
-<LINE>is Claudio. I have known when there was no music</LINE>
-<LINE>with him but the drum and the fife; and now had he</LINE>
-<LINE>rather hear the tabour and the pipe: I have known</LINE>
-<LINE>when he would have walked ten mile a-foot to see a</LINE>
-<LINE>good armour; and now will he lie ten nights awake,</LINE>
-<LINE>carving the fashion of a new doublet. He was wont to</LINE>
-<LINE>speak plain and to the purpose, like an honest man</LINE>
-<LINE>and a soldier; and now is he turned orthography; his</LINE>
-<LINE>words are a very fantastical banquet, just so many</LINE>
-<LINE>strange dishes. May I be so converted and see with</LINE>
-<LINE>these eyes? I cannot tell; I think not: I will not</LINE>
-<LINE>be sworn, but love may transform me to an oyster; but</LINE>
-<LINE>I'll take my oath on it, till he have made an oyster</LINE>
-<LINE>of me, he shall never make me such a fool. One woman</LINE>
-<LINE>is fair, yet I am well; another is wise, yet I am</LINE>
-<LINE>well; another virtuous, yet I am well; but till all</LINE>
-<LINE>graces be in one woman, one woman shall not come in</LINE>
-<LINE>my grace. Rich she shall be, that's certain; wise,</LINE>
-<LINE>or I'll none; virtuous, or I'll never cheapen her;</LINE>
-<LINE>fair, or I'll never look on her; mild, or come not</LINE>
-<LINE>near me; noble, or not I for an angel; of good</LINE>
-<LINE>discourse, an excellent musician, and her hair shall</LINE>

-<LINE>No, nor I neither; but most wonderful that she</LINE>

-<LINE>By my troth, my lord, I cannot tell what to think</LINE>

-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I would have sworn it had, my lord; especially</LINE>

-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I should think this a gull, but that the</LINE>

-<LINE>with scorn, write to him that I love him?'</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>This says she now when she is beginning to write to</LINE>
-<LINE>him; for she'll be up twenty times a night, and</LINE>
-<LINE>there will she sit in her smock till she have writ a</LINE>
-<LINE>sheet of paper: my daughter tells us all.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Now you talk of a sheet of paper, I remember a</LINE>
-<LINE>pretty jest your daughter told us of.</LINE>

-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>O, when she had writ it and was reading it over, she</LINE>
-<LINE>found Benedick and Beatrice between the sheet?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>That.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>O, she tore the letter into a thousand halfpence;</LINE>
-<LINE>railed at herself, that she should be so immodest</LINE>
-<LINE>to write to one that she knew would flout her; 'I</LINE>
-<LINE>measure him,' says she, 'by my own spirit; for I</LINE>
-<LINE>should flout him, if he writ to me; yea, though I</LINE>
-<LINE>love him, I should.'</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Then down upon her knees she falls, weeps, sobs,</LINE>
-<LINE>beats her heart, tears her hair, prays, curses; 'O</LINE>
-<LINE>sweet Benedick! God give me patience!'</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>She doth indeed; my daughter says so: and the</LINE>
-<LINE>ecstasy hath so much overborne her that my daughter</LINE>
-<LINE>is sometime afeared she will do a desperate outrage</LINE>
-<LINE>to herself: it is very true.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>It were good that Benedick knew of it by some</LINE>
-<LINE>other, if she will not discover it.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>To what end? He would make but a sport of it and</LINE>
-<LINE>torment the poor lady worse.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>An he should, it were an alms to hang him. She's an</LINE>

-<LINE>she is virtuous.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>And she is exceeding wise.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>In every thing but in loving Benedick.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>O, my lord, wisdom and blood combating in so tender</LINE>
-<LINE>a body, we have ten proofs to one that blood hath</LINE>
-<LINE>the victory. I am sorry for her, as I have just</LINE>
-<LINE>cause, being her uncle and her guardian.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I would she had bestowed this dotage on me: I would</LINE>
-<LINE>have daffed all other respects and made her half</LINE>
-<LINE>myself. I pray you, tell Benedick of it, and hear</LINE>
-<LINE>what a' will say.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Were it good, think you?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Hero thinks surely she will die; for she says she</LINE>
-<LINE>will die, if he love her not, and she will die, ere</LINE>
-<LINE>she make her love known, and she will die, if he woo</LINE>
-<LINE>her, rather than she will bate one breath of her</LINE>
-<LINE>accustomed crossness.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>She doth well: if she should make tender of her</LINE>
-<LINE>love, 'tis very possible he'll scorn it; for the</LINE>
-<LINE>man, as you know all, hath a contemptible spirit.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<LINE>He is a very proper man.</LINE>

-<LINE>And I take him to be valiant.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>As Hector, I assure you: and in the managing of</LINE>
-<LINE>quarrels you may say he is wise; for either he</LINE>
-<LINE>avoids them with great discretion, or undertakes</LINE>
-<LINE>them with a most Christian-like fear.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>If he do fear God, a' must necessarily keep peace:</LINE>
-<LINE>if he break the peace, he ought to enter into a</LINE>
-<LINE>quarrel with fear and trembling.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>And so will he do; for the man doth fear God,</LINE>
-<LINE>howsoever it seems not in him by some large jests</LINE>
-<LINE>he will make. Well I am sorry for your niece. Shall</LINE>
-<LINE>we go seek Benedick, and tell him of her love?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Never tell him, my lord: let her wear it out with</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Well, we will hear further of it by your daughter:</LINE>
-<LINE>let it cool the while. I love Benedick well; and I</LINE>

-<LINE>how much he is unworthy so good a lady.</LINE>

-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Let there be the same net spread for her; and that</LINE>
-<LINE>must your daughter and her gentlewomen carry. The</LINE>
-<LINE>sport will be, when they hold one an opinion of</LINE>
-<LINE>another's dotage, and no such matter: that's the</LINE>

-<LINE>rather die than give any sign of affection. I did</LINE>
-<LINE>never think to marry: I must not seem proud: happy</LINE>
-<LINE>are they that hear their detractions and can put</LINE>
-<LINE>them to mending. They say the lady is fair; 'tis a</LINE>
-<LINE>truth, I can bear them witness; and virtuous; 'tis</LINE>
-<LINE>so, I cannot reprove it; and wise, but for loving</LINE>
-<LINE>me; by my troth, it is no addition to her wit, nor</LINE>
-<LINE>no great argument of her folly, for I will be</LINE>
-<LINE>horribly in love with her. I may chance have some</LINE>
-<LINE>odd quirks and remnants of wit broken on me,</LINE>
-<LINE>because I have railed so long against marriage: but</LINE>
-<LINE>doth not the appetite alter? a man loves the meat</LINE>
-<LINE>in his youth that he cannot endure in his age.</LINE>
-<LINE>Shall quips and sentences and these paper bullets of</LINE>
-<LINE>the brain awe a man from the career of his humour?</LINE>
-<LINE>No, the world must be peopled. When I said I would</LINE>
-<LINE>die a bachelor, I did not think I should live till I</LINE>
-<LINE>were married. Here comes Beatrice. By this day!</LINE>
-<LINE>she's a fair lady: I do spy some marks of love in</LINE>
-<LINE>her.</LINE>

-<LINE>Fair Beatrice, I thank you for your pains.</LINE>

-<LINE>You take pleasure then in the message?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Yea, just so much as you may take upon a knife's</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Ha! 'Against my will I am sent to bid you come in</LINE>
-<LINE>to dinner;' there's a double meaning in that 'I took</LINE>
-<LINE>no more pains for those thanks than you took pains</LINE>
-<LINE>to thank me.' that's as much as to say, Any pains</LINE>
-<LINE>that I take for you is as easy as thanks. If I do</LINE>
-<LINE>not take pity of her, I am a villain; if I do not</LINE>
-<LINE>love her, I am a Jew. I will go get her picture.</LINE>

-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>HERO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Good Margaret, run thee to the parlor;</LINE>
-<LINE>There shalt thou find my cousin Beatrice</LINE>
-<LINE>Proposing with the prince and Claudio:</LINE>
-<LINE>Whisper her ear and tell her, I and Ursula</LINE>
-<LINE>Walk in the orchard and our whole discourse</LINE>
-<LINE>Is all of her; say that thou overheard'st us;</LINE>
-<LINE>And bid her steal into the pleached bower,</LINE>
-<LINE>Where honeysuckles, ripen'd by the sun,</LINE>
-<LINE>Forbid the sun to enter, like favourites,</LINE>
-<LINE>Made proud by princes, that advance their pride</LINE>
-<LINE>Against that power that bred it: there will she hide her,</LINE>
-<LINE>To listen our purpose. This is thy office;</LINE>
-<LINE>Bear thee well in it and leave us alone.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>HERO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Now, Ursula, when Beatrice doth come,</LINE>
-<LINE>As we do trace this alley up and down,</LINE>
-<LINE>Our talk must only be of Benedick.</LINE>
-<LINE>When I do name him, let it be thy part</LINE>
-<LINE>To praise him more than ever man did merit:</LINE>
-<LINE>My talk to thee must be how Benedick</LINE>
-<LINE>Is sick in love with Beatrice. Of this matter</LINE>
-<LINE>Is little Cupid's crafty arrow made,</LINE>
-<LINE>That only wounds by hearsay.</LINE>
-<STAGEDIR>Enter BEATRICE, behind</STAGEDIR>
-<LINE>Now begin;</LINE>
-<LINE>For look where Beatrice, like a lapwing, runs</LINE>
-<LINE>Close by the ground, to hear our conference.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>URSULA</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>The pleasant'st angling is to see the fish</LINE>
-<LINE>Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,</LINE>
-<LINE>And greedily devour the treacherous bait:</LINE>
-<LINE>So angle we for Beatrice; who even now</LINE>
-<LINE>Is couched in the woodbine coverture.</LINE>
-<LINE>Fear you not my part of the dialogue.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>HERO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Then go we near her, that her ear lose nothing</LINE>
-<LINE>Of the false sweet bait that we lay for it.</LINE>
-<STAGEDIR>Approaching the bower</STAGEDIR>
-<LINE>No, truly, Ursula, she is too disdainful;</LINE>
-<LINE>I know her spirits are as coy and wild</LINE>
-<LINE>As haggerds of the rock.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>URSULA</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>But are you sure</LINE>
-<LINE>That Benedick loves Beatrice so entirely?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>HERO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>So says the prince and my new-trothed lord.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>URSULA</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>And did they bid you tell her of it, madam?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>HERO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>They did entreat me to acquaint her of it;</LINE>
-<LINE>But I persuaded them, if they loved Benedick,</LINE>
-<LINE>To wish him wrestle with affection,</LINE>
-<LINE>And never to let Beatrice know of it.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>URSULA</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Why did you so? Doth not the gentleman</LINE>
-<LINE>Deserve as full as fortunate a bed</LINE>
-<LINE>As ever Beatrice shall couch upon?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>HERO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>O god of love! I know he doth deserve</LINE>
-<LINE>As much as may be yielded to a man:</LINE>
-<LINE>But Nature never framed a woman's heart</LINE>
-<LINE>Of prouder stuff than that of Beatrice;</LINE>
-<LINE>Disdain and scorn ride sparkling in her eyes,</LINE>
-<LINE>Misprising what they look on, and her wit</LINE>
-<LINE>Values itself so highly that to her</LINE>
-<LINE>All matter else seems weak: she cannot love,</LINE>
-<LINE>Nor take no shape nor project of affection,</LINE>
-<LINE>She is so self-endeared.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>URSULA</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Sure, I think so;</LINE>
-<LINE>And therefore certainly it were not good</LINE>
-<LINE>She knew his love, lest she make sport at it.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>HERO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Why, you speak truth. I never yet saw man,</LINE>
-<LINE>How wise, how noble, young, how rarely featured,</LINE>
-<LINE>But she would spell him backward: if fair-faced,</LINE>
-<LINE>She would swear the gentleman should be her sister;</LINE>
-<LINE>If black, why, Nature, drawing of an antique,</LINE>
-<LINE>Made a foul blot; if tall, a lance ill-headed;</LINE>
-<LINE>If low, an agate very vilely cut;</LINE>
-<LINE>If speaking, why, a vane blown with all winds;</LINE>
-<LINE>If silent, why, a block moved with none.</LINE>
-<LINE>So turns she every man the wrong side out</LINE>
-<LINE>And never gives to truth and virtue that</LINE>
-<LINE>Which simpleness and merit purchaseth.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>URSULA</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Sure, sure, such carping is not commendable.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>HERO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>No, not to be so odd and from all fashions</LINE>
-<LINE>As Beatrice is, cannot be commendable:</LINE>
-<LINE>But who dare tell her so? If I should speak,</LINE>
-<LINE>She would mock me into air; O, she would laugh me</LINE>
-<LINE>Out of myself, press me to death with wit.</LINE>
-<LINE>Therefore let Benedick, like cover'd fire,</LINE>
-<LINE>Consume away in sighs, waste inwardly:</LINE>
-<LINE>It were a better death than die with mocks,</LINE>
-<LINE>Which is as bad as die with tickling.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>URSULA</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Yet tell her of it: hear what she will say.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>HERO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>No; rather I will go to Benedick</LINE>
-<LINE>And counsel him to fight against his passion.</LINE>
-<LINE>And, truly, I'll devise some honest slanders</LINE>
-<LINE>To stain my cousin with: one doth not know</LINE>
-<LINE>How much an ill word may empoison liking.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>URSULA</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>O, do not do your cousin such a wrong.</LINE>
-<LINE>She cannot be so much without true judgment--</LINE>
-<LINE>Having so swift and excellent a wit</LINE>
-<LINE>As she is prized to have--as to refuse</LINE>
-<LINE>So rare a gentleman as Signior Benedick.</LINE>

-<LINE>No glory lives behind the back of such.</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Nay, that would be as great a soil in the new gloss</LINE>
-<LINE>of your marriage as to show a child his new coat</LINE>
-<LINE>and forbid him to wear it. I will only be bold</LINE>
-<LINE>with Benedick for his company; for, from the crown</LINE>
-<LINE>of his head to the sole of his foot, he is all</LINE>
-<LINE>mirth: he hath twice or thrice cut Cupid's</LINE>
-<LINE>bow-string and the little hangman dare not shoot at</LINE>
-<LINE>him; he hath a heart as sound as a bell and his</LINE>

-<LINE>There is no appearance of fancy in him, unless it be</LINE>
-<LINE>a fancy that he hath to strange disguises; as, to be</LINE>
-<LINE>a Dutchman today, a Frenchman to-morrow, or in the</LINE>
-<LINE>shape of two countries at once, as, a German from</LINE>
-<LINE>the waist downward, all slops, and a Spaniard from</LINE>
-<LINE>the hip upward, no doublet. Unless he have a fancy</LINE>
-<LINE>to this foolery, as it appears he hath, he is no</LINE>
-<LINE>fool for fancy, as you would have it appear he is.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<LINE>If he be not in love with some woman, there is no</LINE>

-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Are you good men and true?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>VERGES</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Yea, or else it were pity but they should suffer</LINE>
-<LINE>salvation, body and soul.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Nay, that were a punishment too good for them, if</LINE>
-<LINE>they should have any allegiance in them, being</LINE>
-<LINE>chosen for the prince's watch.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>VERGES</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Well, give them their charge, neighbour Dogberry.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>First, who think you the most desertless man to be</LINE>
-<LINE>constable?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>First Watchman</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Hugh Otecake, sir, or George Seacole; for they can</LINE>
-<LINE>write and read.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Come hither, neighbour Seacole. God hath blessed</LINE>
-<LINE>you with a good name: to be a well-favoured man is</LINE>
-<LINE>the gift of fortune; but to write and read comes by nature.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Second Watchman</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Both which, master constable,--</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>You have: I knew it would be your answer. Well,</LINE>
-<LINE>for your favour, sir, why, give God thanks, and make</LINE>
-<LINE>no boast of it; and for your writing and reading,</LINE>
-<LINE>let that appear when there is no need of such</LINE>
-<LINE>vanity. You are thought here to be the most</LINE>
-<LINE>senseless and fit man for the constable of the</LINE>
-<LINE>watch; therefore bear you the lantern. This is your</LINE>
-<LINE>charge: you shall comprehend all vagrom men; you are</LINE>
-<LINE>to bid any man stand, in the prince's name.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Second Watchman</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>How if a' will not stand?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Why, then, take no note of him, but let him go; and</LINE>
-<LINE>presently call the rest of the watch together and</LINE>
-<LINE>thank God you are rid of a knave.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>VERGES</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>If he will not stand when he is bidden, he is none</LINE>
-<LINE>of the prince's subjects.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>True, and they are to meddle with none but the</LINE>
-<LINE>prince's subjects. You shall also make no noise in</LINE>
-<LINE>the streets; for, for the watch to babble and to</LINE>
-<LINE>talk is most tolerable and not to be endured.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Watchman</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>We will rather sleep than talk: we know what</LINE>
-<LINE>belongs to a watch.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Why, you speak like an ancient and most quiet</LINE>
-<LINE>watchman; for I cannot see how sleeping should</LINE>
-<LINE>offend: only, have a care that your bills be not</LINE>
-<LINE>stolen. Well, you are to call at all the</LINE>
-<LINE>ale-houses, and bid those that are drunk get them to bed.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Watchman</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>How if they will not?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Why, then, let them alone till they are sober: if</LINE>
-<LINE>they make you not then the better answer, you may</LINE>
-<LINE>say they are not the men you took them for.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Watchman</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Well, sir.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>If you meet a thief, you may suspect him, by virtue</LINE>
-<LINE>of your office, to be no true man; and, for such</LINE>
-<LINE>kind of men, the less you meddle or make with them,</LINE>
-<LINE>why the more is for your honesty.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Watchman</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>If we know him to be a thief, shall we not lay</LINE>
-<LINE>hands on him?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Truly, by your office, you may; but I think they</LINE>
-<LINE>that touch pitch will be defiled: the most peaceable</LINE>
-<LINE>way for you, if you do take a thief, is to let him</LINE>
-<LINE>show himself what he is and steal out of your company.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>VERGES</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>You have been always called a merciful man, partner.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Truly, I would not hang a dog by my will, much more</LINE>
-<LINE>a man who hath any honesty in him.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>VERGES</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>If you hear a child cry in the night, you must call</LINE>
-<LINE>to the nurse and bid her still it.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Watchman</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>How if the nurse be asleep and will not hear us?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Why, then, depart in peace, and let the child wake</LINE>
-<LINE>her with crying; for the ewe that will not hear her</LINE>
-<LINE>lamb when it baes will never answer a calf when he bleats.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>VERGES</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>'Tis very true.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>This is the end of the charge:--you, constable, are</LINE>
-<LINE>to present the prince's own person: if you meet the</LINE>
-<LINE>prince in the night, you may stay him.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>VERGES</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Nay, by'r our lady, that I think a' cannot.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Five shillings to one on't, with any man that knows</LINE>
-<LINE>the statutes, he may stay him: marry, not without</LINE>
-<LINE>the prince be willing; for, indeed, the watch ought</LINE>
-<LINE>to offend no man; and it is an offence to stay a</LINE>
-<LINE>man against his will.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>VERGES</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>By'r lady, I think it be so.</LINE>

-<LINE>Ha, ha, ha! Well, masters, good night: an there be</LINE>

-<LINE>Come, neighbour.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<SPEAKER>Watchman</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Well, masters, we hear our charge: let us go sit here</LINE>
-<LINE>upon the church-bench till two, and then all to bed.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>One word more, honest neighbours. I pray you watch</LINE>

-<LINE>Therefore know I have earned of Don John a thousand ducats.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<SPEAKER>CONRADE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Is it possible that any villany should be so dear?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BORACHIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Thou shouldst rather ask if it were possible any</LINE>
-<LINE>villany should be so rich; for when rich villains</LINE>
-<LINE>have need of poor ones, poor ones may make what</LINE>
-<LINE>price they will.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CONRADE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I wonder at it.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BORACHIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>That shows thou art unconfirmed. Thou knowest that</LINE>
-<LINE>the fashion of a doublet, or a hat, or a cloak, is</LINE>
-<LINE>nothing to a man.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CONRADE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Yes, it is apparel.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BORACHIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I mean, the fashion.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CONRADE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Yes, the fashion is the fashion.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BORACHIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Tush! I may as well say the fool's the fool. But</LINE>
-<LINE>seest thou not what a deformed thief this fashion</LINE>
-<LINE>is?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>Watchman</SPEAKER>
-<LINE><STAGEDIR>Aside</STAGEDIR> I know that Deformed; a' has been a vile</LINE>
-<LINE>thief this seven year; a' goes up and down like a</LINE>
-<LINE>gentleman: I remember his name.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BORACHIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Didst thou not hear somebody?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CONRADE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>No; 'twas the vane on the house.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BORACHIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Seest thou not, I say, what a deformed thief this</LINE>
-<LINE>fashion is? how giddily a' turns about all the hot</LINE>
-<LINE>bloods between fourteen and five-and-thirty?</LINE>
-<LINE>sometimes fashioning them like Pharaoh's soldiers</LINE>
-<LINE>in the reeky painting, sometime like god Bel's</LINE>
-<LINE>priests in the old church-window, sometime like the</LINE>
-<LINE>shaven Hercules in the smirched worm-eaten tapestry,</LINE>
-<LINE>where his codpiece seems as massy as his club?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CONRADE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>All this I see; and I see that the fashion wears</LINE>
-<LINE>out more apparel than the man. But art not thou</LINE>
-<LINE>thyself giddy with the fashion too, that thou hast</LINE>
-<LINE>shifted out of thy tale into telling me of the fashion?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BORACHIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Not so, neither: but know that I have to-night</LINE>
-<LINE>wooed Margaret, the Lady Hero's gentlewoman, by the</LINE>
-<LINE>name of Hero: she leans me out at her mistress'</LINE>
-<LINE>chamber-window, bids me a thousand times good</LINE>
-<LINE>night,--I tell this tale vilely:--I should first</LINE>
-<LINE>tell thee how the prince, Claudio and my master,</LINE>
-<LINE>planted and placed and possessed by my master Don</LINE>
-<LINE>John, saw afar off in the orchard this amiable encounter.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CONRADE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>And thought they Margaret was Hero?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BORACHIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Two of them did, the prince and Claudio; but the</LINE>
-<LINE>devil my master knew she was Margaret; and partly</LINE>
-<LINE>by his oaths, which first possessed them, partly by</LINE>
-<LINE>the dark night, which did deceive them, but chiefly</LINE>
-<LINE>by my villany, which did confirm any slander that</LINE>
-<LINE>Don John had made, away went Claudio enraged; swore</LINE>
-<LINE>he would meet her, as he was appointed, next morning</LINE>
-<LINE>at the temple, and there, before the whole</LINE>
-<LINE>congregation, shame her with what he saw o'er night</LINE>
-<LINE>and send her home again without a husband.</LINE>

-</SPEECH>
-

-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Goodman Verges, sir, speaks a little off the</LINE>
-<LINE>matter: an old man, sir, and his wits are not so</LINE>
-<LINE>blunt as, God help, I would desire they were; but,</LINE>
-<LINE>in faith, honest as the skin between his brows.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>VERGES</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Yes, I thank God I am as honest as any man living</LINE>
-<LINE>that is an old man and no honester than I.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>

-<LINE>Neighbours, you are tedious.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-

-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>It pleases your worship to say so, but we are the</LINE>
-<LINE>poor duke's officers; but truly, for mine own part,</LINE>
-<LINE>if I were as tedious as a king, I could find it in</LINE>
-<LINE>my heart to bestow it all of your worship.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>All thy tediousness on me, ah?</LINE>

-<LINE>Yea, an 'twere a thousand pound more than 'tis; for</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>A good old man, sir; he will be talking: as they</LINE>
-<LINE>say, when the age is in, the wit is out: God help</LINE>
-<LINE>us! it is a world to see. Well said, i' faith,</LINE>
-<LINE>neighbour Verges: well, God's a good man; an two men</LINE>
-<LINE>ride of a horse, one must ride behind. An honest</LINE>
-<LINE>soul, i' faith, sir; by my troth he is, as ever</LINE>

-<LINE>are not alike; alas, good neighbour!</LINE>

-<LINE>Sweet prince, you learn me noble thankfulness.</LINE>
-<LINE>There, Leonato, take her back again:</LINE>
-<LINE>Give not this rotten orange to your friend;</LINE>
-<LINE>She's but the sign and semblance of her honour.</LINE>
-<LINE>Behold how like a maid she blushes here!</LINE>
-<LINE>O, what authority and show of truth</LINE>
-<LINE>Can cunning sin cover itself withal!</LINE>
-<LINE>Comes not that blood as modest evidence</LINE>
-<LINE>To witness simple virtue? Would you not swear,</LINE>
-<LINE>All you that see her, that she were a maid,</LINE>
-<LINE>By these exterior shows? But she is none:</LINE>
-<LINE>She knows the heat of a luxurious bed;</LINE>
-<LINE>Her blush is guiltiness, not modesty.</LINE>

-<LINE>Dear my lord, if you, in your own proof,</LINE>

-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I know what you would say: if I have known her,</LINE>
-<LINE>You will say she did embrace me as a husband,</LINE>
-<LINE>And so extenuate the 'forehand sin:</LINE>
-<LINE>No, Leonato,</LINE>
-<LINE>I never tempted her with word too large;</LINE>
-<LINE>But, as a brother to his sister, show'd</LINE>
-<LINE>Bashful sincerity and comely love.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-

-<SPEAKER>HERO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>And seem'd I ever otherwise to you?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<LINE>Out on thee! Seeming! I will write against it:</LINE>
-<LINE>You seem to me as Dian in her orb,</LINE>
-<LINE>As chaste as is the bud ere it be blown;</LINE>
-<LINE>But you are more intemperate in your blood</LINE>
-<LINE>Than Venus, or those pamper'd animals</LINE>
-<LINE>That rage in savage sensuality.</LINE>

-<LINE>I am sorry you must hear: upon mine honour,</LINE>
-<LINE>Myself, my brother and this grieved count</LINE>
-<LINE>Did see her, hear her, at that hour last night</LINE>
-<LINE>Talk with a ruffian at her chamber-window</LINE>
-<LINE>Who hath indeed, most like a liberal villain,</LINE>
-<LINE>Confess'd the vile encounters they have had</LINE>
-<LINE>A thousand times in secret.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON JOHN</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Fie, fie! they are not to be named, my lord,</LINE>
-<LINE>Not to be spoke of;</LINE>
-<LINE>There is not chastity enough in language</LINE>
-<LINE>Without offence to utter them. Thus, pretty lady,</LINE>
-<LINE>I am sorry for thy much misgovernment.</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>O Hero, what a Hero hadst thou been,</LINE>

-<LINE>But fare thee well, most foul, most fair! farewell,</LINE>
-<LINE>Thou pure impiety and impious purity!</LINE>
-<LINE>For thee I'll lock up all the gates of love,</LINE>
-<LINE>And on my eyelids shall conjecture hang,</LINE>

-<LINE>Wherefore! Why, doth not every earthly thing</LINE>
-<LINE>Cry shame upon her? Could she here deny</LINE>
-<LINE>The story that is printed in her blood?</LINE>
-<LINE>Do not live, Hero; do not ope thine eyes:</LINE>
-<LINE>For, did I think thou wouldst not quickly die,</LINE>
-<LINE>Thought I thy spirits were stronger than thy shames,</LINE>
-<LINE>Myself would, on the rearward of reproaches,</LINE>
-<LINE>Strike at thy life. Grieved I, I had but one?</LINE>
-<LINE>Chid I for that at frugal nature's frame?</LINE>
-<LINE>O, one too much by thee! Why had I one?</LINE>
-<LINE>Why ever wast thou lovely in my eyes?</LINE>
-<LINE>Why had I not with charitable hand</LINE>
-<LINE>Took up a beggar's issue at my gates,</LINE>
-<LINE>Who smirch'd thus and mired with infamy,</LINE>
-<LINE>I might have said 'No part of it is mine;</LINE>
-<LINE>This shame derives itself from unknown loins'?</LINE>
-<LINE>But mine and mine I loved and mine I praised</LINE>
-<LINE>And mine that I was proud on, mine so much</LINE>
-<LINE>That I myself was to myself not mine,</LINE>
-<LINE>Valuing of her,--why, she, O, she is fallen</LINE>
-<LINE>Into a pit of ink, that the wide sea</LINE>
-<LINE>Hath drops too few to wash her clean again</LINE>
-<LINE>And salt too little which may season give</LINE>
-<LINE>To her foul-tainted flesh!</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>No, truly not; although, until last night,</LINE>
-<LINE>I have this twelvemonth been her bedfellow.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Confirm'd, confirm'd! O, that is stronger made</LINE>
-<LINE>Which was before barr'd up with ribs of iron!</LINE>
-<LINE>Would the two princes lie, and Claudio lie,</LINE>
-<LINE>Who loved her so, that, speaking of her foulness,</LINE>
-<LINE>Wash'd it with tears? Hence from her! let her die.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>FRIAR FRANCIS</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Hear me a little; for I have only been</LINE>
-<LINE>Silent so long and given way unto</LINE>
-<LINE>This course of fortune</LINE>
-<LINE>By noting of the lady. I have mark'd</LINE>
-<LINE>A thousand blushing apparitions</LINE>
-<LINE>To start into her face, a thousand innocent shames</LINE>
-<LINE>In angel whiteness beat away those blushes;</LINE>
-<LINE>And in her eye there hath appear'd a fire,</LINE>
-<LINE>To burn the errors that these princes hold</LINE>
-<LINE>Against her maiden truth. Call me a fool;</LINE>
-<LINE>Trust not my reading nor my observations,</LINE>
-<LINE>Which with experimental seal doth warrant</LINE>
-<LINE>The tenor of my book; trust not my age,</LINE>
-<LINE>My reverence, calling, nor divinity,</LINE>
-<LINE>If this sweet lady lie not guiltless here</LINE>
-<LINE>Under some biting error.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Friar, it cannot be.</LINE>
-<LINE>Thou seest that all the grace that she hath left</LINE>
-<LINE>Is that she will not add to her damnation</LINE>
-<LINE>A sin of perjury; she not denies it:</LINE>
-<LINE>Why seek'st thou then to cover with excuse</LINE>
-<LINE>That which appears in proper nakedness?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>FRIAR FRANCIS</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Lady, what man is he you are accused of?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>HERO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>They know that do accuse me; I know none:</LINE>
-<LINE>If I know more of any man alive</LINE>
-<LINE>Than that which maiden modesty doth warrant,</LINE>
-<LINE>Let all my sins lack mercy! O my father,</LINE>
-<LINE>Prove you that any man with me conversed</LINE>
-<LINE>At hours unmeet, or that I yesternight</LINE>
-<LINE>Maintain'd the change of words with any creature,</LINE>
-<LINE>Refuse me, hate me, torture me to death!</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>FRIAR FRANCIS</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>There is some strange misprision in the princes.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Two of them have the very bent of honour;</LINE>
-<LINE>And if their wisdoms be misled in this,</LINE>
-<LINE>The practise of it lives in John the bastard,</LINE>
-<LINE>Whose spirits toil in frame of villanies.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I know not. If they speak but truth of her,</LINE>
-<LINE>These hands shall tear her; if they wrong her honour,</LINE>
-<LINE>The proudest of them shall well hear of it.</LINE>
-<LINE>Time hath not yet so dried this blood of mine,</LINE>
-<LINE>Nor age so eat up my invention,</LINE>
-<LINE>Nor fortune made such havoc of my means,</LINE>
-<LINE>Nor my bad life reft me so much of friends,</LINE>
-<LINE>But they shall find, awaked in such a kind,</LINE>
-<LINE>Both strength of limb and policy of mind,</LINE>
-<LINE>Ability in means and choice of friends,</LINE>
-<LINE>To quit me of them throughly.</LINE>

-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>FRIAR FRANCIS</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Pause awhile,</LINE>
-<LINE>And let my counsel sway you in this case.</LINE>
-<LINE>Your daughter here the princes left for dead:</LINE>
-<LINE>Let her awhile be secretly kept in,</LINE>
-<LINE>And publish it that she is dead indeed;</LINE>
-<LINE>Maintain a mourning ostentation</LINE>
-<LINE>And on your family's old monument</LINE>
-<LINE>Hang mournful epitaphs and do all rites</LINE>
-<LINE>That appertain unto a burial.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>LEONATO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>What shall become of this? what will this do?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>FRIAR FRANCIS</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Marry, this well carried shall on her behalf</LINE>
-<LINE>Change slander to remorse; that is some good:</LINE>
-<LINE>But not for that dream I on this strange course,</LINE>
-<LINE>But on this travail look for greater birth.</LINE>
-<LINE>She dying, as it must so be maintain'd,</LINE>
-<LINE>Upon the instant that she was accused,</LINE>
-<LINE>Shall be lamented, pitied and excused</LINE>
-<LINE>Of every hearer: for it so falls out</LINE>
-<LINE>That what we have we prize not to the worth</LINE>
-<LINE>Whiles we enjoy it, but being lack'd and lost,</LINE>
-<LINE>Why, then we rack the value, then we find</LINE>
-<LINE>The virtue that possession would not show us</LINE>
-<LINE>Whiles it was ours. So will it fare with Claudio:</LINE>
-<LINE>When he shall hear she died upon his words,</LINE>
-<LINE>The idea of her life shall sweetly creep</LINE>
-<LINE>Into his study of imagination,</LINE>
-<LINE>And every lovely organ of her life</LINE>
-<LINE>Shall come apparell'd in more precious habit,</LINE>
-<LINE>More moving-delicate and full of life,</LINE>
-<LINE>Into the eye and prospect of his soul,</LINE>
-<LINE>Than when she lived indeed; then shall he mourn,</LINE>
-<LINE>If ever love had interest in his liver,</LINE>
-<LINE>And wish he had not so accused her,</LINE>
-<LINE>No, though he thought his accusation true.</LINE>
-<LINE>Let this be so, and doubt not but success</LINE>
-<LINE>Will fashion the event in better shape</LINE>
-<LINE>Than I can lay it down in likelihood.</LINE>
-<LINE>But if all aim but this be levell'd false,</LINE>
-<LINE>The supposition of the lady's death</LINE>
-<LINE>Will quench the wonder of her infamy:</LINE>
-<LINE>And if it sort not well, you may conceal her,</LINE>
-<LINE>As best befits her wounded reputation,</LINE>
-<LINE>In some reclusive and religious life,</LINE>
-<LINE>Out of all eyes, tongues, minds and injuries.</LINE>

-<LINE>Signior Leonato, let the friar advise you:</LINE>

-<LINE>As secretly and justly as your soul</LINE>

-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>We had like to have had our two noses snapped off</LINE>

-</SPEECH>

-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Leonato and his brother. What thinkest thou? Had</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>In a false quarrel there is no true valour. I came</LINE>

-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>We have been up and down to seek thee; for we are</LINE>

-<LINE>away. Wilt thou use thy wit?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>It is in my scabbard: shall I draw it?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<LINE>Dost thou wear thy wit by thy side?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Never any did so, though very many have been beside</LINE>

-<LINE>minstrels; draw, to pleasure us.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-

-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>As I am an honest man, he looks pale. Art thou</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>What, courage, man! What though care killed a cat,</LINE>
-<LINE>thou hast mettle enough in thee to kill care.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Sir, I shall meet your wit in the career, and you</LINE>
-<LINE>charge it against me. I pray you choose another subject.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Nay, then, give him another staff: this last was</LINE>

-<LINE>I will make it good how you dare, with what you</LINE>
-<LINE>dare, and when you dare. Do me right, or I will</LINE>

-<LINE>What, a feast, a feast?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I' faith, I thank him; he hath bid me to a calf's</LINE>

-<LINE>Sir, your wit ambles well; it goes easily.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>I'll tell thee how Beatrice praised thy wit the</LINE>
-<LINE>other day. I said, thou hadst a fine wit: 'True,'</LINE>
-<LINE>said she, 'a fine little one.' 'No,' said I, 'a</LINE>
-<LINE>great wit:' 'Right,' says she, 'a great gross one.'</LINE>
-<LINE>'Nay,' said I, 'a good wit:' 'Just,' said she, 'it</LINE>
-<LINE>hurts nobody.' 'Nay,' said I, 'the gentleman</LINE>
-<LINE>is wise:' 'Certain,' said she, 'a wise gentleman.'</LINE>
-<LINE>'Nay,' said I, 'he hath the tongues:' 'That I</LINE>
-<LINE>believe,' said she, 'for he swore a thing to me on</LINE>
-<LINE>Monday night, which he forswore on Tuesday morning;</LINE>
-<LINE>there's a double tongue; there's two tongues.' Thus</LINE>
-<LINE>did she, an hour together, transshape thy particular</LINE>
-<LINE>virtues: yet at last she concluded with a sigh, thou</LINE>
-<LINE>wast the properest man in Italy.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>For the which she wept heartily and said she cared</LINE>
-<LINE>not.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Yea, that she did: but yet, for all that, an if she</LINE>
-<LINE>did not hate him deadly, she would love him dearly:</LINE>
-<LINE>the old man's daughter told us all.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>All, all; and, moreover, God saw him when he was</LINE>
-<LINE>hid in the garden.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>But when shall we set the savage bull's horns on</LINE>
-<LINE>the sensible Benedick's head?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-

-<SPEAKER>CLAUDIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Yea, and text underneath, 'Here dwells Benedick the</LINE>
-<LINE>married man'?</LINE>

-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Fare you well, boy: you know my mind. I will leave</LINE>
-<LINE>you now to your gossip-like humour: you break jests</LINE>
-<LINE>as braggarts do their blades, which God be thanked,</LINE>
-<LINE>hurt not. My lord, for your many courtesies I thank</LINE>
-<LINE>you: I must discontinue your company: your brother</LINE>
-<LINE>the bastard is fled from Messina: you have among</LINE>
-<LINE>you killed a sweet and innocent lady. For my Lord</LINE>
-<LINE>Lackbeard there, he and I shall meet: and, till</LINE>

-<LINE>Come you, sir: if justice cannot tame you, she</LINE>

-<LINE>Officers, what offence have these men done?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Marry, sir, they have committed false report;</LINE>
-<LINE>moreover, they have spoken untruths; secondarily,</LINE>
-<LINE>they are slanders; sixth and lastly, they have</LINE>
-<LINE>belied a lady; thirdly, they have verified unjust</LINE>
-<LINE>things; and, to conclude, they are lying knaves.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>First, I ask thee what they have done; thirdly, I</LINE>

-<LINE>to their charge.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<SPEAKER>DON PEDRO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Who have you offended, masters, that you are thus</LINE>

-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BORACHIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Sweet prince, let me go no farther to mine answer:</LINE>
-<LINE>do you hear me, and let this count kill me. I have</LINE>
-<LINE>deceived even your very eyes: what your wisdoms</LINE>
-<LINE>could not discover, these shallow fools have brought</LINE>
-<LINE>to light: who in the night overheard me confessing</LINE>
-<LINE>to this man how Don John your brother incensed me</LINE>
-<LINE>to slander the Lady Hero, how you were brought into</LINE>
-<LINE>the orchard and saw me court Margaret in Hero's</LINE>
-<LINE>garments, how you disgraced her, when you should</LINE>
-<LINE>marry her: my villany they have upon record; which</LINE>
-<LINE>I had rather seal with my death than repeat over</LINE>
-<LINE>to my shame. The lady is dead upon mine and my</LINE>

-<LINE>I know not how to pray your patience;</LINE>

-<LINE>By my soul, nor I:</LINE>

-<LINE>I cannot bid you bid my daughter live;</LINE>

-<LINE>How innocent she died; and if your love</LINE>
-<LINE>Can labour ought in sad invention,</LINE>
-<LINE>Hang her an epitaph upon her tomb</LINE>
-<LINE>And sing it to her bones, sing it to-night:</LINE>
-<LINE>To-morrow morning come you to my house,</LINE>
-<LINE>And since you could not be my son-in-law,</LINE>
-<LINE>Be yet my nephew: my brother hath a daughter,</LINE>
-<LINE>Almost the copy of my child that's dead,</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>BORACHIO</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>No, by my soul, she was not,</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>DOGBERRY</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Moreover, sir, which indeed is not under white and</LINE>

-<LINE>name, the which he hath used so long and never paid</LINE>

-<LINE>Will you then write me a sonnet in praise of my beauty?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>In so high a style, Margaret, that no man living</LINE>

-<LINE>To have no man come over me! why, shall I always</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Thy wit is as quick as the greyhound's mouth; it catches.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-

-<SPEAKER>MARGARET</SPEAKER>

-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>A most manly wit, Margaret; it will not hurt a</LINE>

-<LINE>thee the bucklers.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<LINE>swimmer, Troilus the first employer of panders, and</LINE>
-<LINE>a whole bookful of these quondam carpet-mangers,</LINE>
-<LINE>whose names yet run smoothly in the even road of a</LINE>
-<LINE>blank verse, why, they were never so truly turned</LINE>
-<LINE>over and over as my poor self in love. Marry, I</LINE>
-<LINE>cannot show it in rhyme; I have tried: I can find</LINE>
-<LINE>out no rhyme to 'lady' but 'baby,' an innocent</LINE>
-<LINE>rhyme; for 'scorn,' 'horn,' a hard rhyme; for,</LINE>
-<LINE>'school,' 'fool,' a babbling rhyme; very ominous</LINE>

-<LINE>Sweet Beatrice, wouldst thou come when I called thee?</LINE>

-<LINE>'Then' is spoken; fare you well now: and yet, ere</LINE>

-<LINE>knowing what hath passed between you and Claudio.</LINE>

-
-<SPEECH>

-<LINE>Only foul words; and thereupon I will kiss thee.</LINE>

-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Foul words is but foul wind, and foul wind is but</LINE>

-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Thou hast frighted the word out of his right sense,</LINE>
-<LINE>so forcible is thy wit. But I must tell thee</LINE>
-<LINE>plainly, Claudio undergoes my challenge; and either</LINE>
-<LINE>I must shortly hear from him, or I will subscribe</LINE>
-<LINE>him a coward. And, I pray thee now, tell me for</LINE>
-<LINE>which of my bad parts didst thou first fall in love with me?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>For them all together; which maintained so politic</LINE>
-<LINE>a state of evil that they will not admit any good</LINE>
-<LINE>part to intermingle with them. But for which of my</LINE>
-<LINE>good parts did you first suffer love for me?</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Suffer love! a good epithet! I do suffer love</LINE>
-<LINE>indeed, for I love thee against my will.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BEATRICE</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>In spite of your heart, I think; alas, poor heart!</LINE>
-<LINE>If you spite it for my sake, I will spite it for</LINE>
-<LINE>yours; for I will never love that which my friend hates.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>
-
-<SPEECH>
-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Thou and I are too wise to woo peaceably.</LINE>
-</SPEECH>

-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>An old, an old instance, Beatrice, that lived in</LINE>

-<SPEAKER>BENEDICK</SPEAKER>
-<LINE>Question: why, an hour in clamour and a quarter in</LINE>

-<LINE>wise, if Don Worm, his conscience, find no</LINE>
-<LINE>impediment to the contrary, to be the trumpet of his</LINE>
-<LINE>own virtues, as I am to myself. So much for</LINE>

-<LINE>I'll tell thee what, prince; a college of</LINE>

-<LINE>thou think I care for a satire or an epigram? No:</LINE>
-<LINE>if a man will be beaten with brains, a' shall wear</LINE>
-<LINE>nothing handsome about him. In brief, since I do</LINE>
-<LINE>purpose to marry, I will think nothing to any</LINE>
-<LINE>purpose that the world can say against it; and</LINE>
