He then talks to his brother, Clarence, who is being taken by Brakenbury to be imprisoned in the Tower. RICHARD Plots have I laid, inductions dangerous, By drunken prophecies, libels, and dreams To set my brother Clarence and the king In deadly hate the one against the other. And if King Edward be as true and just As I am subtle, false, and treacherous, This day should Clarence closely be mewed up About a prophecy which says that ‘G’ Of Edward’s heirs the murderer shall be. Dive, thoughts, down to my soul, here Clarence comes. 35 40 Enter CLARENCE guarded by BRAKENBURY Brother, good day. What means this armèd guard That waits upon your grace? CLARENCE RICHARD His majesty, Tend’ring my person’s safety, hath appointed This conduct to convey me to the Tower. Upon what cause? CLARENCE RICHARD CLARENCE 45 Because my name is George. Alack, my lord, that fault is none of yours. He should for that commit your godfathers. Oh, belike his majesty hath some intent That you should be new christened in the Tower. But what’s the matter, Clarence? May I know? 50 Yea, Richard, when I know, but I protest As yet I do not. But as I can learn, He hearkens after prophecies and dreams, And from the cross-row plucks the letter ‘G’, And says a wizard told him that by ‘G’ His issue disinherited should be. And for my name of George begins with ‘G’, 55 Turn over KS3/06/En/Levels 4–7/Richard III Sourced from SATs-Papers.co.uk 3 http://www.SATs-Papers.co.uk It follows in his thought that I am he. These, as I learn, and suchlike toys as these Hath moved his highness to commit me now. RICHARD CLARENCE RICHARD BRAKENBURY RICHARD 60 Why, this it is when men are ruled by women. ’Tis not the king that sends you to the Tower. My lady Grey, his wife, Clarence, ’tis she That tempts him to this harsh extremity. Was it not she and that good man of worship, Anthony Woodville, her brother there, That made him send Lord Hastings to the Tower, From whence this present day he is delivered? We are not safe, Clarence, we are not safe. 70 By heaven, I think there is no man secure But the queen’s kindred, and night-walking heralds That trudge betwixt the king and Mistress Shore. Heard you not what an humble suppliant Lord Hastings was for her delivery? 75 65 Humbly complaining to her deity Got my lord Chamberlain his liberty. I’ll tell you what, I think it is our way, If we will keep in favour with the king, To be her men and wear her livery. The jealous, o’er-worn widow and herself, Since that our brother dubbed them gentlewomen, Are mighty gossips in our monarchy. 80 I beseech your graces both to pardon me; His majesty hath straitly given in charge That no man shall have private conference, Of what degree soever, with your brother. 85 Even so. And please your worship, Brakenbury, You may partake of any thing we say. We speak no treason, man. We say the king Is wise and virtuous, and his noble queen Well struck in years, fair, and not jealous. We say that Shore’s wife hath a pretty foot, A cherry lip, a bonny eye, a passing pleasing tongue, And that the queen’s kindred are made gentlefolks. How say you, sir? Can you deny all this?

The Mayor and citizens are on the stage watching and listening. RICHARD I do suspect I have done some offence That seems disgracious in the city’s eye, And that you come to reprehend my ignorance. BUCKINGHAM You have, my lord. Would it might please your grace On our entreaties to amend your fault. RICHARD Else wherefore breathe I in a Christian land? BUCKINGHAM Know then, it is your fault that you resign The supreme seat, the throne majestical, The sceptered office of your ancestors, Your state of fortune and your due of birth, The lineal glory of your royal house, To the corruption of a blemished stock; While in the mildness of your sleepy thoughts, Which here we waken to our country’s good, The noble isle doth want her proper limbs; Her face defaced with scars of infamy, Her royal stock graft with ignoble plants, And almost shouldered in the swallowing gulf Of dark forgetfulness and deep oblivion. Which to recure, we heartily solicit Your gracious self to take on you the charge And kingly government of this your land, Not as protector, steward, substitute, Or lowly factor for another’s gain, But as successively from blood to blood, Your right of birth, your empery, your own. For this, consorted with the citizens, Your very worshipful and loving friends, And by their vehement instigation, In this just cause come I to move your grace. RICHARD 110 115 120 125 130 135 I cannot tell if to depart in silence Or bitterly to speak in your reproof Best fitteth my degree or your condition. If not to answer, you might haply think 140 Turn over KS3/06/En/Levels 4–7/Richard III Sourced from SATs-Papers.co.uk 5 http://www.SATs-Papers.co.uk Tongue-tied ambition, not replying, yielded To bear the golden yoke of sovereignty, Which fondly you would here impose on me. If to reprove you for this suit of yours, So seasoned with your faithful love to me, Then on the other side I checked my friends. Therefore, to speak, and to avoid the first, And then, in speaking, not to incur the last, Definitively thus I answer you: Your love deserves my thanks, but my desert Unmeritable shuns your high request. First, if all obstacles were cut away, And that my path were even to the crown As the ripe revenue and due of birth, Yet so much is my poverty of spirit, So mighty and so many my defects, That I would rather hide me from my greatness, Being a bark to brook no mighty sea, Than in my greatness covet to be hid And in the vapour of my glory smothered. But, God be thanked, there is no need of me, And much I need to help you, were there need. The royal tree hath left us royal fruit, Which, mellowed by the stealing hours of time, Will well become the seat of majesty And make (no doubt) us happy by his reign. On him I lay that you would lay on me, The right and fortune of his happy stars, Which God defend that I should wring from him.
