Text

No Shame but mine: I must, forsooth, be forced

To give my hand opposed against my heart

Unto a mad-brain rudesby full of spleen;

Who woo’d in haste and means to wed at leisure.

I told you, I, he was a frantic fool,

Hiding his bitter jests in blunt behavior:

And, to be noted for a merry man,

He’ll woo a thousand, ‘point the day of marriage,

Make feasts, invite friends, and proclaim the banns;

Yet never means to wed where he hath woo’d.

Now must the world point at poor Katharina,

And say, ‘Lo, there is mad Petruchio’s wife,

If it would please him come and marry her!”
