 +<A NAME=speech1><​b>​First Gentleman</​b></​a>​
 +<​blockquote>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.1>​You do not meet a man but frowns: our bloods</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.2>​No more obey the heavens than our courtiers</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.3>​Still seem as does the king.</​A><​br>​
 +</​blockquote>​

 +<A NAME=speech2><​b>​Second Gentleman</​b></​a>​
 +<​blockquote>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.4>​But what's the matter?</​A><​br>​
 +</​blockquote>​

 +<A NAME=speech3><​b>​First Gentleman</​b></​a>​
 +<​blockquote>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.5>​His daughter, and the heir of's kingdom, whom</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.6>​He purposed to his wife's sole son--a widow</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.7>​That late he married--hath referr'​d herself</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.8>​Unto a poor but worthy gentleman: she's wedded;</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.9>​Her husband banish'​d;​ she imprison'​d:​ all</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.10>​Is outward sorrow; though I think the king</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.11>​Be touch'​d at very heart.</​A><​br>​
 +</​blockquote>​

 +<A NAME=speech4><​b>​Second Gentleman</​b></​a>​

 +<A NAME=1.1.12>​None but the king?</​A><​br>​
 +</​blockquote>​

 +<A NAME=speech5><​b>​First Gentleman</​b></​a>​
 +<​blockquote>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.13>​He that hath lost her too; so is the queen,</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.14>​That most desired the match; but not a courtier,</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.15>​Although they wear their faces to the bent</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.16>​Of the king's look'​s,​ hath a heart that is not</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.17>​Glad at the thing they scowl at.</​A><​br>​
 +</​blockquote>​
 +
 +<A NAME=speech6><​b>​Second Gentleman</​b></​a>​
 +<​blockquote>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.18>​And why so?</​A><​br>​
 +</​blockquote>​
 +
 +<A NAME=speech7><​b>​First Gentleman</​b></​a>​
 +<​blockquote>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.19>​He that hath miss'd the princess is a thing</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.20>​Too bad for bad report: and he that hath her--</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.21>​I mean, that married her, alack, good man!</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.22>​And therefore banish'​d--is a creature such</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.23>​As,​ to seek through the regions of the earth</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.24>​For one his like, there would be something failing</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.25>​In him that should compare. I do not think</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.26>​So fair an outward and such stuff within</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.27>​Endows a man but he.</​A><​br>​
 +</​blockquote>​

 +</​blockquote>​
 +
 +<A NAME=speech11><​b>​First Gentleman</​b></​a>​
 +<​blockquote>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.33>​I cannot delve him to the root: his father</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.34>​Was call'd Sicilius, who did join his honour</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.35>​Against the Romans with Cassibelan,</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.36>​But had his titles by Tenantius whom</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.37>​He served with glory and admired success,</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.38>​So gain'd the sur-addition Leonatus;</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.39>​And had, besides this gentleman in question,</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.40>​Two other sons, who in the wars o' the time</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.41>​Died with their swords in hand; for which</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.42>​their father,</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.43>​Then old and fond of issue, took such sorrow</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.44>​That he quit being, and his gentle lady,</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.45>​Big of this gentleman our theme, deceased</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.46>​As he was born. The king he takes the babe</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.47>​To his protection, calls him Posthumus Leonatus,</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.48>​Breeds him and makes him of his bed-chamber,</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.49>​Puts to him all the learnings that his time</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.50>​Could make him the receiver of; which he took,</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.51>​As we do air, fast as 'twas minister'​d,</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.52>​And in's spring became a harvest, lived in court--</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.53>​Which rare it is to do--most praised, most loved,</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.54>​A sample to the youngest, to the more mature</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.55>​A glass that feated them, and to the graver</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.56>​A child that guided dotards; to his mistress,</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.57>​For whom he now is banish'​d,​ her own price</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.58>​Proclaims how she esteem'​d him and his virtue;</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.59>​By her election may be truly read</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.60>​What kind of man he is.</​A><​br>​

 +<​blockquote>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.61>​I honour him</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.62>​Even out of your report. But, pray you, tell me,</​A><​br>​
 +<A NAME=1.1.63>​Is she sole child to the king?</​A><​br>​
 +</​blockquote>​

 +<A NAME=2.2.35>​And be her sense but as a monument,</​A><​br>​

 +<A NAME=2.2.46>​Why should I write this down, that's riveted,</​A><​br>​
