ACT 5 (lights off) Enter Leonato and his brother. Leonato (very emotional): Bring me a father that so loved his child, Whose joy of her is overwhelmed like mine, And bid him to speak of patience. The like himself. Therefore give me no counsel. (walk diagonally to the left) My griefs cry louder than advertisement. Leonato’ s Brother (comforting): Yet bend not all the harm upon yourself. Make those that do offend you suffer too. Enter Prince and Claudio. (Come from the right side) Claudio: Good day to both of you. ( To Leonato’ s Brother)(point to Leonato) Who wrongs him? Leonato (with anger): Tush, tush, man, never fleer and jest at me. (turn to right, approach Claudio) I speak not like a dotard nor a fool, As under privilege of age to brag What I have done being young, or what would do Were I not old, Know, Claudio, to they head, Thou hast so wronged mine innocent child and me That I am forced to lay my reverence by, And with gray hairs and bruise of many days Do challenge thee to trial of a man. I say thou hast belied mine innocent child. Thy slander hath gone through and through her Heart, And she lies buried with her ancestors, O, in a tomb where never scandal slept, Save this of hers, framed by thy villainy. point to Claudio Claudio (point to himself) : My villainy? Leonato: Thine, Claudio, thine, I say. Leonato’ s Brother (Comforting Leonato) : Content yourself. God knows I loved my niece, And she is dead, slandered to death by villains That dare as well answer a man indeed As I dare take a serpent by the tongue.— Boys, apes, braggarts, jacks, milksops! Prince (To Leonato and his brother) : I will not hear you.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
