The Taming of the Shrew. It shall be moone, or starre, or what I list, Or ere I iourney to your Fathers house: Goe on, and fetch our horses backe againe,
[2210]
Euermore crost and crost, nothing but crost.
Hort. Say as he saies, or we shall neuer goe. Kate. Forward I pray, since we haue come so farre, And be it moone, or sunne, or what you please: And if you please to call it a rush Candle,
[2215]
Henceforth I vowe it shall be so for me.
Petr. I say it is the Moone. Kate. I know it is the Moone. Petr. Nay then you lye: it is the blessed Sunne. Kate. Then God be blest, it is the blessed sun,
[2220]
But sunne it is not, when you say it is not. And the Moone changes euen as your minde: What you will haue it nam'd, euen that it is, And so it shall be so for Katherine.
Hort. Petruchio, goe thy waies, the field is won. Petr.
[2225]
Well, forward, forward, thus the bowle should (run, And not vnluckily against the Bias: But soft, Company is comming here. Enter Vincentio. Good morrow gentle Mistris, where away: Tell me sweete Kate, and tell me truely too,
[2230]
Hast thou beheld a fresher Gentlewoman: Such warre of white and red within her cheekes: What stars do spangle heauen with such beautie, As those two eyes become that heauenly face? Faire louely Maide, once more good day to thee:
[2235]
Sweete Kate embrace her for her beauties sake.
Hort. A will make the man mad to make the woman of him. Kate. Yong budding Virgin, faire, and fresh, & sweet, Whether away, or whether is thy aboade? Happy the Parents of so faire a childe;
[2240]
Happier the man whom fauourable stars A lots thee for his louely bedfellow.
Petr. Why how now Kate, I hope thou art not mad, This is a man old, wrinckled, faded, withered, And not a Maiden, as thou saist he is. Kate.
[2245]
Pardon old father my mistaking eies, That haue bin so bedazled with the sunne, That euery thing I looke on seemeth greene: Now I perceiue thou art a reuerent Father: Pardon I pray thee for my mad mistaking.
Petr.
[2250]
Do good old grandsire, & withall make known Which way thou trauellest, if along with vs, We shall be ioyfull of thy companie.
Vin. Faire Sir, and you my merry Mistris, That with your strange encounter much amasde me:
[2255]
My name is call'd Vincentio, my dwelling Pisa, And bound I am to Padua, there to visite A sonne of mine, which long I haue not seene.
Petr. What is his name? Vinc. Lucentio gentle sir. Petr.
[2260]
Happily met, the happier for thy sonne: And now by Law, as well as reuerent age, I may intitle thee my louing Father, The sister to my wife, this Gentlewoman, Thy Sonne by this hath married: wonder not,
[2265]
Nor be not grieued, she is of good esteeme, Her dowrie wealthie, and of worthie birth; Beside, so qualified, as may beseeme The Spouse of any noble Gentleman: Let me imbrace with old Vincentio,

[2270]
And wander we to see thy honest sonne, Who will of thy arriuall be full ioyous.
Vinc. But is this true, or is it else your pleasure, Like pleasant trauailors to breake a Iest Vpon the companie you ouertake? Hort.
[2275]
I doe assure thee father so it is.
Petr. Come goe along and see the truth hereof, For our first merriment hath made thee iealous. Exeunt. Hor. Well Petruchio, this has put me in heart; Haue to my Widdow, and if she froward
[2280]
Then hast thou taught Hortentio to be vntoward.
Exit.
[Act 5, Scene 1] Enter Biondello, Lucentio and Bianca, Gremio is out before. Biond. Softly and swiftly sir, for the Priest is ready. Luc.

I flie Biondello; but they may chance to neede

thee at home, therefore leaue vs.

Nay faith, Ile see the Church a your backe,

You shall not choose but drinke before you go, I thinke I shall command your welcome here; And by all likelihood some cheere is toward.

Enter Pedant with seruants, Baptista, Tranio. Tra.
[2335]

Sir, what are you that offer to beate my ser­

uant?

Vinc.

What am I sir: nay what are you sir: oh immor­

tall Goddes: oh fine villaine, a silken doublet, a vel­

uet hose, a scarlet cloake, and a copataine hat: oh I am

[2340]

vndone, I am vndone: while I plaie the good husband

at home, my sonne and my seruant spend all at the vni­

uersitie.

Tra.

How now, what's the matter?

Bapt.

What is the man lunaticke?

Tra.
[2345]

Sir, you seeme a sober ancient Gentleman by

your habit: but your words shew you a mad man: why

sir, what cernes it you, if I weare Pearle and gold: I thank

my good Father, I am able to maintaine it.

Vin.

Thy father: oh villaine, he is a Saile‑maker in

[2350]

Bergamo.

Bap.

You mistake sir, you mistake sir, praie what do

you thinke is his name?

Vin.

His name, as if I knew not his name: I haue

brought him vp euer since he was three yeeres old, and

[2355]

his name is Tronio.

Ped.

Awaie, awaie mad asse, his name is Lucentio, and

he is mine onelie sonne and heire to the Lands of me sig­

nior Vincentio.

Ven.

Lucentio: oh he hath murdred his Master; laie

[2360]

hold on him I charge you in the Dukes name: oh my

sonne, my sonne: tell me thou villaine, where is my son

Lucentio?

Tra.

Call forth an officer: Carrie this mad knaue to

the Iaile: father Baptista, I charge you see that hee be

[2365]

forth comming.

Vinc.

Carrie me to the Iaile?

Gre.

Staie officer, he shall not go to prison.

Bap.

Talke not signior Gremio: I saie he shall goe to

prison.

Gre.
[2370]

Take heede signior Baptista, least you be coni­

catcht in this businesse: I dare sweare this is the right

Vincentio.

Ped.

Sweare if thou dar'st.

Gre.

Naie, I dare not sweare it.

Tran.
[2375]

Then thou wert best saie that I am not Lu­ centio .

Gre.

Yes, I know thee to be signior Lucentio.

Bap.

Awaie with the dotard, to the Iaile with him.

Enter Biondello, Lucentio and Biancu Bianca . Vin.

Thus strangers may be haild and abusd: oh mon­

[2380]

strous villaine.

Bion.

Oh we are spoil'd, and yonder he is, denie him,

forsweare him, or else we are all vndone.

Exit Biondello, Tranio and Pedant as fast as may be. Luc.

Pardon sweete father.

Kneele. Vin.

Liues my sweete sonne?

Bian.
[2385]

Pardon deere father.

Bap.

How hast thou offended, where is Lucentio?

Luc.

Here's Lucentio, right sonne to the right Vin­ centio ,

That haue by marriage made thy daughter mine,
[2390]
While counterfeit supposes bleer'd thine eine.
Gre. Here's packing with a witnesse to deceiue vs all. Vin. Where is that damned villaine Tranio, That fac'd and braued me in this matter so? Bap. Why, tell me is not this my Cambio? Bian.
[2395]
Cambio is chang'd into Lucentio.
Luc. Loue wrought these miracles. Biancas loue Made me exchange my state with Tranio, While he did beare my countenance in the towne, And happilie I haue arriued at the last
[2400]
Vnto the wished hauen of my blisse: What Tranio did, my selfe enforst him to; Then pardon him sweete Father for my sake.
Vin.

Ile slit the villaines nose that would haue sent

me to the Iaile.

Bap.
[2405]

But doe you heare sir, haue you married my

daughter without asking my good will ?

Vin.

Feare not Baptista, we will content you, goe to:

but I will in to be reueng'd for this villanie.

Exit. Bap. And I to sound the depth of this knauerie. Exit. Luc.
[2410]
Looke not pale Bianca, thy father will not frown.
Exeunt. Gre. My cake is doug,hbut dough, but Ile in among the rest, Out of hope of all, but my share of the feast. Kate.

Husband let's follow, to see the end of this adoe.

Petr.

First kisse me Kate, and we will.

Kate.
[2415]

What in the midst of the streete?

Petr.

What art thou asham'd of me?

Kate.

No sir, God forbid, but asham'd to kisse.

Petr. Why then let's home againe: Come Sirra let's awaie. Kate. Nay, I will giue thee a kisse, now praie thee Loue staie. Petr.
[2420]
Is not this well? come my sweete Kate. Better once then neuer, for neuer to late.
Exeunt.
