RICHARD It is a quarrel most unnatural, To be revenged on him that loveth thee. ANNE It is a quarrel just and reasonable, To be revenged on him that killed my husband. RICHARD He that bereft thee, lady, of thy husband Did it to help thee to a better husband. ANNE He lives that loves thee better than he could. ANNE 140 His better doth not breathe upon the earth. RICHARD 135 Name him. RICHARD Plantagenet. ANNE Why, that was he. RICHARD The self-same name, but one of better nature. ANNE Where is he? RICHARD Here. (She spits at him.) Why dost thou spit at me? ANNE Would it were mortal poison, for thy sake! RICHARD Never came poison from so sweet a place. ANNE Never hung poison on a fouler toad. Out of my sight! Thou dost infect mine eyes. RICHARD Thine eyes, sweet lady, have infected mine. ANNE 145 Would they were basilisks to strike thee dead! 150 Turn over KS3/08/En/Levels 4–7/Richard III Sourced from SATs-Papers.co.uk Richard_282655.indd 3 3 http://www.SATs-Papers.co.uk 21/12/07 1:54:20 pm RICHARD I would they were, that I might die at once – For now they kill me with a living death. Those eyes of thine from mine have drawn salt tears, Shamed their aspects with store of childish drops – These eyes, which never shed remorseful tear, No, when my father York and Edward wept To hear the piteous moan that Rutland made When black-faced Clifford shook his sword at him – Nor when thy warlike father, like a child, Told the sad story of my father’s death, And twenty times made pause to sob and weep That all the standers-by had wet their cheeks Like trees bedashed with rain. In that sad time My manly eyes did scorn an humble tear; And what these sorrows could not thence exhale Thy beauty hath, and made them blind with weeping. I never sued to friend nor enemy; My tongue could never learn sweet smoothing word. But, now thy beauty is proposed my fee, My proud heart sues, and prompts my tongue to speak. 155 160 165 170 She looks scornfully at him. Teach not thy lip such scorn – for it was made For kissing, lady, not for such contempt. If thy revengeful heart cannot forgive, Lo here I lend thee this sharp-pointed sword – Which if thou please to hide in this true breast And let the soul forth that adoreth thee, I lay it naked to the deadly stroke, And humbly beg the death upon my knee. 175 He kneels, pulling open his shirt. She grips the sword and moves as if to stab him. Nay, do not pause: for I did kill King Henry – But ’twas thy beauty that provokèd me. Nay, now dispatch: ’twas I that stabbed young Edward – But ’twas thy heavenly face that set me on. 180 She lets the sword fall. Take up the sword again, or take up me. ANNE Arise, dissembler. Though I wish thy death, I will not be thy executioner.

KING RICHARD Stay, madam. I must talk a word with you. ELIZABETH I have no more sons of the royal blood For thee to slaughter! For my daughters, Richard, They shall be praying nuns, not weeping queens – And therefore level not to hit their lives. KING RICHARD You have a daughter called Elizabeth, Virtuous and fair, royal and gracious. ELIZABETH 200 205 And must she die for this? O, let her live, And I’ll corrupt her manners, stain her beauty, Slander myself as false to Edward’s bed, Throw over her the veil of infamy! So she may live unscarred of bleeding slaughter, I will confess she was not Edward’s daughter. KING RICHARD Wrong not her birth. She is a royal Princess. ELIZABETH To save her life I’ll say she is not so. KING RICHARD Her life is safest only in her birth. ELIZABETH And only in that safety died her brothers. KING RICHARD Lo, at their birth good stars were opposite. ELIZABETH No – to their lives ill friends were contrary. KING RICHARD All unavoided is the doom of destiny. ELIZABETH 210 True, when avoided grace makes destiny. My babes were destined to a fairer death, If grace had blessed thee with a fairer life. KING RICHARD 215 220 You speak as if that I had slain my cousins.

And by their uncle cozened – Of comfort, kingdom, kindred, freedom, life! Whose hand soever lanced their tender hearts, Thy head, all indirectly, gave direction. No doubt the murderous knife was dull and blunt Till it was whetted on thy stone-hard heart To revel in the entrails of my lambs! But that still use of grief makes wild grief tame, My tongue should to thy ears not name my boys Till that my nails were anchored in thine eyes – And I, in such a desperate bay of death, Like a poor bark, of sails and tackling reft, Rush all to pieces on thy rocky bosom. KING RICHARD Th’ advancement of your children, gentle lady. ELIZABETH Up to some scaffold, there to lose their heads? KING RICHARD 235 What good is covered with the face of heaven, To be discovered, that can do me good? KING RICHARD 230 Madam, so thrive I in my enterprise And dangerous success of bloody wars, As I intend more good to you or yours Than ever you or yours by me were harmed! ELIZABETH 225 Unto the dignity and height of fortune, The high imperial type of this earth’s glory! ELIZABETH 245 Flatter my sorrow with report of it. Tell me what state, what dignity, what honour, Canst thou demise to any child of mine? KING RICHARD 240 Even all I have – ay, and myself and all Will I withal endow a child of thine – So in the Lethe of thy angry soul Thou drown the sad remembrance of those wrongs Which thou supposest I have done to thee. ELIZABETH 250 Be brief, lest that the process of thy kindness Last longer telling than thy kindness’ date. KING RICHARD Then know, that from my soul I love thy daughter. ELIZABETH My daughter’s mother thinks it with her soul. KING RICHARD 255 What do you think?

So from thy soul’s love didst thou love her brothers, And from my heart’s love I do thank thee for it! 260 Be not so hasty to confound my meaning. I mean that with my soul I love thy daughter And do intend to make her Queen of England.
