  • Let us complain to them what fools were here, Disguis'd like Muscovites, in shapeless gear; And wonder what they were, and to what end Their shallow shows and prologue vilely penn'd, And their rough carriage so ridiculous, Should be presented at our tent to us.
    5.2 — Act 5 Scene 2 — The same. Before the Princess's pavilion (35% in)
