with me :
Tyb. Thou wretched boy, that did'st consort him here,
(7 bey fight, Tybalt falls,
Rom. O! I am Fortune's fool.
Enter Prince, Montague, Capulet, their wives, &c..
Ben: 0 Noble Prince, I can discover all
La. Cap. Tybalt my cousin! Omy brother's child !-
Prince. Benvolio, who began this fray ?
Ben. Tybalt here fiain, whom Romeo's hand did slay; Romeo, that spoke him fair, bid him bethink How nice, the quarrel was, and urg'd withal Your high difpleasure; all this uttered with gentle breath, calos look, knees humbly bow'd, Could not take truce with the unruly spleen, Of Tybalt; deaf to peace; but that he tilts With piercing steel at bold Mercurio's breast ; Who, all as hot, turns deadly point to point, And with a martial scorn, with one hand beats Cold death aside, and with the other, sends It back to Tybalt, whole dexterity. Retoris it : Romeo he cries aloud, Hold, friends! friends, part! and, swifter than his His azil arm beats down their fatal points,
And, 'twixt them rushes; underneath whose arm
La. Cap. He is a kinsinan to the Montague.
Prin. Romeo flew him, he flew Mercutio ;
friend; His fault concludes but what the law should end, The life of Tybalt.
Prin. And for that offence Immediately we do exile him hence : I have an interest in your heats' proceeding, My blood for your rude brawls doth lie a bleeding .. But I'll amerce you with so strong a fine, That you shall all repent the loss of mine, I will be deaf to pleading and excuses, Nor tears nor prayers shall purchase out abuses ; Therefore use none ; let Romeo hence in hafte, Elle, when he's found, that hour is his last. Bear hence this body, and attend our will: Mercy but murthers, pardoning those that kill. [Exeunt.
SC E N E IV.
Enter Juliet alone..
That th' runaway's * eyes may wink ; and Romeo.
Enter nurse with cords.
Nurse. Ay, ay, the cords.
Jul. Ay me, what news ?
Nurse. Ah welladay, he's dead, he's dead, he's dead,
, bo. that is, the fun; whom he elegantly calls , the runaway, in reference to the poetical account of the fun driving his charriot of light through the heavens, and running down to the west from the eyes of mortals to the arms of his celestial mistiefe.
Jul. Can heaven be so envious ?
Nurje. Romeo can,
Jul. What devil art thou that dolt torment me thus?
Nurse. I saw the wound, I saw it with mine eyes,
Jul, o break, my heart-poor bankrupt, break at
Nurse. O Tybalt, Tybalt, the best friend I had :
Jul. What storm is this that blows so contrary !
Nurse. Tybalt is dead, and Romeo banished;
Jul. O God ! did Romeo's hand shed Tybalt's blood?
These four liacs ia books seem to be the players' trala.
In such a gorgeous palace !
Nurse. There's no trust,
, all forsworn; all naught'; and all dissemblers
Jul. Blister'd be thy tongue, For such a wish! he was not born to shame; Upon his brow fhame is alham'd to fit : For 'tis a throne where Honour may be crown'd Sole monarch of the universal earth. O, what a beast was I to chide him so ? Nurse. Will you speak well of him that kill'd your
cousin ? Sul, Shall I speak ill of him that is my
husband ? Ah, poor my Lord, what tongue thall smooth thy name, When I, thy three hours wife, have mangled it! But wherefore, villain, didst thou kill my cousin ? That villain cousin would have kill'd my husband. Back, foolish tears, back to your native spring ; Your tributary drops belong to woe, Which you, mistaking, offer up to joy. My husband lives, that Tybale would have slain ; And Tybalt's dead, that would have kill'd my husband; All this is comfort ; wherefore weep I then? Some word there was, worser than Tybalt's death, That murther’d me; I would forget il fain., But, oh! it presses to my memory, Like damned guilty deeds to finners' minds ;, Tybalt is dead, and Romeo.banished ! That banished, that one word banished, Hath Nain ten thousand Tybalts :. Tybalt's death, Was woe enough, if it had ended there: Or if four woe delights in fellowship, And needly, will be rank'd with other griefs, Why follow'd not, when she said Tybalt's dead. Thy father or thy mother, nay, or both ? But with a rearward following Tybalt's death, Romeo is banished to speak that word, Is, father, mother, Tybalt, Romeo, Juliet, All flain, all dead! Romeo is banished!
