THE COMEDY OF ERRORS,

ANTIPHOLUS of Syracuse accosted by ADRIANA and

LUCIANA.

“AD. Ay, ay, Antipholus, look strange and frown. Some other mistress bath thy sweet aspects: I am not Adriana, nor thy wife.

Ant. Plead you to me, fair dame? I know you not.

Luc. Fie, brother ! how the world is changed with you! When were you wont to use my sister thus ?

Ad. Come, I will fasten on this sleeve of thine. Thou art an elm, my husband; I a vine.

Ant. To me she speaks; she moves me for her theme.
What, was I married to her in my dream?
Or sleep I now, and think I hear all this?
What error drives our eyes and ears amiss ?
Until I know this sure uncertainty,
I'll entertain the offer'd fallacy.

Dro. This is the fairy land:-0 spite of spites !
We talk with goblins, owls, and elvish sprites:
If we obey them not, this will ensue-
They'll suck our breath, or pinch us black and blue.
Ad. Come, sir, to dinner; Dromio, keep the gate.”

Act II. S. 2.
