O knihe

Excerpt: ...books, And help to dress your sister's chamber up: You know to-morrow is the wedding-day. BIANCA. Farewell, sweet masters, both: I must be gone. Exeunt BIANCA and SERVANT. LUCENTIO. Faith, mistress, then I have no cause to stay. Exit. HORTENSIO. But I have cause to pry into this pedant: Methinks he looks as though he were in love.

Now must the world point at poor Katherine, And say 'Lo! there is mad Petruchio's wife, If it would please him come and marry her.' TRANIO. Patience, good Katherine, and Baptista too. Upon my life, Petruchio means but well, Whatever fortune stays him from his word: Though he be blunt, I know him passing wise; Though he be merry, yet withal he's honest. KATHERINA. Would Katherine had never seen him though! Exit, weeping, followed by BIANCA and others. BAPTISTA.
