Measure for Measure

by William Shakespeare (1623)

Act 3 Scene 1

Isabella - Female, Under 25 yrs

Scene partner - Claudio

Monologue - Comedic, Under 1:00 min


O you beast!
O faithless coward! O dishonest wretch!
Wilt thou be made a man out of my vice?
Is't not a kind of incest, to take life
From thine own sister's shame? What should I think?
Heaven shield my mother play'd my father fair!
For such a warped slip of wilderness
Ne'er issued from his blood. Take my defiance!
Die, perish! Might but my bending down
Reprieve thee from thy fate, it should proceed:
I'll pray a thousand prayers for thy death,
No word to save thee.
