The Two Gentlemen of Verona


ACT V SCENE III The frontiers of Mantua. The forest.
[Enter Outlaws with SILVIA]
First Outlaw Come, come,
Be patient; we must bring you to our captain.
SILVIA A thousand more mischances than this one
Have learn’d me how to brook this patiently.
Second Outlaw Come, bring her away. 5
First Outlaw Where is the gentleman that was with her?
Third Outlaw Being 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 Outlaw Come, I must bring you to our captain’s cave:
Fear not; he bears an honourable mind,
And will not use a woman lawlessly.
SILVIA O Valentine, this I endure for thee! 15
