Merry Wives of Windsor

Act. III, Pg. 57

Scene II.—The Street in Windsor.

Enter Mrs. PAGE and ROBIN.

Mrs. Page. Nay, keep your way, little gallant;

you were wont to be a follower, but now you

are a leader. Whether had you rather lead

mine eyes or eye your master’s heels?

Rob. I had rather, forsooth, go before you like

a man than follow him like a  dwarf.

Mrs. Page. O you are a flattering boy; now, I

see, you’ll be a courier.

Enter FORD.

Ford. Well met, Mistress Page. Whither go


Mrs. Page. Truly, sir, to see your wife. Is she

at home?

Ford. Ay; and as idle as she may hang together,

for want of company; I think, if your husbands

were dead, you two would marry.

Mrs. Page. Be sure of that,—two other hus-

bands.                                             [cock?

Ford. Where had you this pretty weather-

Mrs. Page. I cannot tell what the dickens his

name is my husband had him off: What do

you call your knight’s name, sirrah!

Rob. Sir John Falstaff.

Ford. Sir John Falstaff!

Mrs. Page. He, he; I can never hit on’s name.

There is such a league between my good man

and he!—Is your wife at home indeed?

Ford. Indeed she is.

Mrs. Page. By your leave, sir;—I am sick till

I see her.       [Exeunt Mrs. PAGE and ROBIN.

Ford. Has Page any brains? hath he any eyes?

hath he any thinking? Sure, they sleep; he hath

no use of them. Why, this boy will carry a letter

twenty miles as easy as a cannon will shoot

point-blank twelve score. He pieces out his

wife’s inclination; he gives her folly motion and

advantage; and now she’s going to my wife,

and Falstaff’s boy with her. A man may hear

this shower sing in the wind!—and Falstaff’s

boy with her!—Good plots!—they are laid; and

our revolted wives share damnation together.

Well; I will take him, then torture my wife,

pluck the borrowed veil of modesty from the so

seeming Mistress Page, divulge Page himself

for a secure and wilful Actaeon; and to these

violent proceedings all my neighbours shall cry

aim [Clock strikes.] The clock gives me my cue,

and my assurance bids me search; there I shall

find Falstaff: I shall be rather praised for this

than mocked: for it is as positive as the earth

is firm that Falstaff is there. I will go.



Shal., Page, &c. Well met, Master Ford.

Ford. Trust me, a good knot: I have good

cheer at home; and, I pray you, all go with me.

Shal. I must excuse myself, Master Ford.

Slen. And so must I, sir; we have appointed

to dine with Mistress Anne, and I would not

break with her for more money than I’ll speak of.

Shal. We have lingered about a match be-

tween Anne Page and my cousin Slender, and

this day we shall have our answer.

Slen. I hope I have your good will, father Page.

Page. You have, Master Slender; I stand

wholly for you:—but my wife, master doctor

is for you altogether.

Caius. Ay, by gar; and de maid is love a-me;

my nursh-a Quickly tell me so much.

Host. What say you to young Master Fenton?

he capers, he dances, he has eyes of youth, he

writes verses, he speaks holiday, he smells April

and May; he will carry’t, he will carry’t; ’tis

in his buttons; he will carry’t.

Page. Not by my consent, I promise you. The

gentleman is of no having: he kept company with the wild Prince and Poins; he is of too

high a region, he knows too much. No; he shall

not knit a knot in his fortunes with the finger

of my substance: if he take her, let him take

her simply; the wealth I have waits on my

consent, and my consent goes not that way.

Ford. I beseech you, heartily, some of you go

home with me to dinner: besides you cheer,

you shall have sport; I will show you a mon-

ster.—Master doctor, you shall go;—so shall

you, Master Page;—and you, Sir Hugh.

Here is a dose of daily religion from A to Z.

Today’s religious topic is as follows:

African Religions (cont’d) 

Agamemnon in Greek legend, king of Mycenae in Argos. He was the son (or grandson) of ATREUS and the brother of MENELAUS. After the murder of Atreus by a nephew, Aegisthus, Agamemnon and Menelaus took refuge with Tyndareus, king of Sparta, whose daughters,Clytemnestra and HELEN, they respectively married. By Clytemnestra, Agamemnon had a son, ORESTES, and three daughters, IPHIGENEIA  (Iphianassa) ELECTRA (Laodice), Chrysothemis. Menelaus succeeded Tyndareus, while Agamemnon recovered his father’s kingdom.

After PARIS (Alexandros) carried off Helen, Agamemnon called on the chieftains of Greece to unite in war against the Trojans. He himself furnished 100 ships and was chosen commander of the combined forces. The fleet assembled at the port of Aulis in Boeotia but was prevented from sailing be calms or contrary winds that were sent by the goddess ARTEMIS because Agamemnon had in some way offended her. To appease the wrath of Artemis, Agamemnon sacrifices his own daughter Iphigeneia—although, in some versions of the myth an animal was substituted and Iphigeneia survived.

After the capture of Troy, Agamemnon returned with CASSANDRA, the daughter of PRIAM, as his war-prize, but upon arrival he was murdered by Clytemnestra and her lover Aegisthus. When his son Orestes had grown to manhood he returned and avenged his father by killing Clytemnestra and Aegisthus.
