Enter DON JOHN the Bastard DON JOHN My lord and brother, God save you. DON PEDRO Good den, brother. DON JOHN If your leisure served, I would speak with you. DON PEDRO In private? DON JOHN If it please you, yet Count Claudio may hear, for what I would speak of, concerns him. DON PEDRO What’s the matter? DON JOHN Means your lordship to be married tomorrow? DON PEDRO You know he does. DON JOHN I know not that, when he knows what I know. CLAUDIO If there be any impediment, I pray you discover it. DON JOHN You may think I love you not, let that appear hereafter, and aim better at me by that I now will manifest, for my brother (I think he holds you well, and in dearness of heart) hath holp to effect your ensuing marriage: surely suit ill-spent, and labour ill-bestowed. DON PEDRO Why what’s the matter? DON JOHN I came hither to tell you, and circumstances shortened (for she has been too long a-talking of), the lady is disloyal. CLAUDIO Who Hero? DON JOHN Even she, Leonato’s Hero, your Hero, every man’s Hero. CLAUDIO Disloyal? 60 65 70 75 Turn over KS3/06/En/Levels 4–7/Much Ado About Nothing Sourced from SATs-Papers.co.uk 3 http://www.SATs-Papers.co.uk DON JOHN The word is too good to paint out her wickedness, I could say she were worse, think you of a worse title, and I will fit her to it: wonder not till further warrant: go but with me tonight, you shall see her chamber window entered, even the night before her wedding day: if you love her, then tomorrow wed her: but it would better fit your honour to change your mind. CLAUDIO I will not think it. DON JOHN 85 May this be so? DON PEDRO 80 If you dare not trust that you see, confess not that you know: if you will follow me, I will show you enough: and when you have seen more, and heard more, proceed accordingly. CLAUDIO If I see anything tonight, why I should not marry her tomorrow in the congregation, where I should wed, there will I shame her. DON PEDRO And as I wooed for thee to obtain her, I will join with thee, to disgrace her. DON JOHN I will disparage her no farther, till you are my witnesses: bear it coldly but till midnight, and let the issue show itself. DON PEDRO Oh day untowardly turned! CLAUDIO Oh mischief strangely thwarting! DON JOHN Oh plague right well prevented! So will you say, when you have seen the sequel. 90 95 100 Exeunt Act 4 Scene 1, lines 80 to 138 In this extract, Don Pedro and Don John support Claudio in his accusation against Hero, and Leonato believes them. HERO I talked with no man at that hour, my lord. DON PEDRO Why then are you no maiden. Leonato, I am sorry you must hear: upon mine honour, Myself, my brother, and this grievèd count Did see her, hear her, at that hour last night, Talk with a ruffian at her chamber window, Who hath indeed most like a liberal villain, KS3/06/En/Levels 4–7/Much Ado About Nothing Sourced from SATs-Papers.co.uk 80 85 4 http://www.SATs-Papers.co.uk Confessed the vile encounters they have had A thousand times in secret. DON JOHN CLAUDIO LEONATO Fie, fie, they are Not to be named my lord, not to be spoke of, There is not chastity enough in language, Without offence to utter them: thus, pretty lady, I am sorry for thy much misgovernment. 90 Oh Hero! What a hero hadst thou been, If half thy outward graces had been placed About thy thoughts and counsels of thy heart? But fare thee well, most foul, most fair, farewell Thou pure impiety, and impious purity, For thee I’ll lock up all the gates of love, And on my eyelids shall conjecture hang, To turn all beauty into thoughts of harm, And never shall it more be gracious. 95 100 Hath no man’s dagger here a point for me? [Hero faints] BEATRICE Why how now, cousin, wherefore sink you down? DON JOHN Come let us go: these things come thus to light, Smother her spirits up. [Exeunt Don Pedro, Don John and Claudio] BENEDICK How doth the lady? BEATRICE Dead I think, help, uncle! Hero, why Hero: uncle: Signor Benedick: friar! LEONATO 105 Oh Fate! Take not away thy heavy hand, Death is the fairest cover for her shame That may be wished for. BEATRICE FRIAR FRANCIS How now, cousin Hero? 110 Have comfort, lady. LEONATO Dost thou look up? Turn over KS3/06/En/Levels 4–7/Much Ado About Nothing Sourced from SATs-Papers.co.uk 5 http://www.SATs-Papers.co.uk FRIAR FRANCIS Yea, wherefore should she not? LEONATO Wherefore? Why doth not every earthly thing Cry shame upon her? Could she here deny The story that is printed in her blood? Do not live, Hero, do not ope thine eyes: For did I think thou wouldst not quickly die, Thought I thy spirits were stronger than thy shames, Myself would on the rearward of reproaches Strike at thy life. Grieved I, I had but one? Chid I for that at frugal nature’s frame? Oh one too much by thee! Why had I one? Why ever wast thou lovely in my eyes? Why had I not with charitable hand, Took up a beggar’s issue at my gates, Who smirchèd thus, and mired with infamy, I might have said, no part of it is mine, This shame derives itself from unknown loins: But mine, and mine I loved, and mine I praised, And mine that I was proud on, mine so much, That I myself, was to myself not mine, Valuing of her: why she, oh she is fallen Into a pit of ink, that the wide sea Hath drops too few to wash her clean again, And salt too little, which may season give To her foul tainted flesh. BENEDICK 115 120 125 130 135 Sir, sir, be patient. For my part I am so attired in wonder, I know not what to say.
