Act III, scene 2
Terms in this set (13)
Sir Thurio, fear not but that she will love you
Now Valentine is banished from her sight.
(previous scene) Lance: I'll after, to rejoice in the boy's correction.
A little time will melt her frozen thoughts,
And worthless Valentine shall be forgot.
How now, Sir Proteus? Is your countryman,
According to our proclamation, gone?
Thurio: Since his exile she hath despised me most,
Forsworn my company and railed at me,
That I am desperate of obtaining her.
My daughter takes his going grievously.
Proteus: Gone, my good lord.
So I believe, but Thurio thinks not so.
Though knows how willingly I would effect
The match between Sir Thurio and my daughter?
Proteus: A little time, my lord, will kill that grief.
What might we do to make the girl forget
The love of Valentine, and love Sir Thurio?
Proteus: I do, my lord,
Ay, but she'll think that it is spoke in hate.
Proteus: The best way is to slander Valentine
With falsehood, cowardice, and poor descent,
Three things that women highly hold in hate.
The you must undertake to slander him.
Proteus: Ay, if his enemy deliver it.
Therefore it must with circumstance be spoken
By one whom she esteemeth as his friend.
Where your good word cannot advantage him,
Your slander never can endamage him
Proteus: And that, my lord, I shall be loath to do.
'Tis an ill office for a gentleman,
Especially against his very friend.
And, Proteus, we dare trust you in this kind
Because we know, on Valentine's report,
You are already Love's firm votary
And cannot soon revolt and change your mind.
Thurio: Therefore, as you unwind her love from him,
You must provide to bottom it on me,
Which must be donee by praising me as much
As you in worth dispraise Sir Valentine.
Ay, much is the force of heaven-bred poesy.
Proteus: As much as I can do I will effect.—
But you, Sir Thurio, are not sharp enough.
You must lay lime to tangle her desires
By wailful connects, whose composèd rhymes
Should be full-fraught with serviceable vows.
This discipline shows thou hast been in love.
Proteus: Say that upon the altar of her beauty
This, or else nothing, will inherit her.
About it, gentlemen.
Thurio: And thy advice this night I'll put in practice.
To give the onset to thy good advice.
Even now about it! I will pardon you.
Proteus: We'll wait upon your Grace till after supper
And after determine our proceedings.
