  • What say you to't? will you again unknit This churlish knot of all-abhorred war, And move in that obedient orb again Where you did give a fair and natural light; And be no more an exhaled meteor, A prodigy of fear, and a portent Of broached mischief to the unborn times?
    5.1 — Act 5 Scene 1 — The King's Camp near Shrewsbury (17% in)
