Romeo and Juliet 1.1.92-105

xigiwega's version from 2016-03-08 16:29


Prince: By thee, old Capulet, and Montague, 92
Have thrice disturbed the quiet of our streets
And made Verona’s ancient citizens
Cast by their grave-beseeming ornaments 95
To wield old partisans in hands as old,
Cankered with peace, to part your cankered hate.
If ever you disturb our streets again,
Your lives shall pay the forfeit of peace.
For this time all the rest depart away. 100
You, Capulet, shall go along with me,
And, Montague, come you this afternoon
To know our farther pleasure in this case,
To old Free-town, our common judgement-place.
Once more, on pain of death, all men depart. 105
