The Two Gentlemen of Verona


ACT V SCENE IIIThe frontiers of Mantua. The forest.
[Enter Outlaws with SILVIA]
First OutlawCome, come,
Be patient; we must bring you to our captain.
SILVIAA thousand more mischances than this one
Have learn’d me how to brook this patiently.
Second OutlawCome, bring her away.5
First OutlawWhere is the gentleman that was with her?
Third OutlawBeing nimble-footed, he hath outrun us,
But Moyses and Valerius follow him.
Go thou with her to the west end of the wood;
There is our captain: we’ll follow him that’s fled;10
The thicket is beset; he cannot ‘scape.
First OutlawCome, I must bring you to our captain’s cave:
Fear not; he bears an honourable mind,
And will not use a woman lawlessly.
SILVIAO Valentine, this I endure for thee!15
