Not illustrated. 1907 edition. Excerpt: ...all is marr'd; there lies a cooling card. Mar. He talks at random; sure, the man is mad. 67 disable disparage. 71 makes the senses rough Thus the Folios. No change is necessary, though many have been proposed. The meaning is that the faculties work roughly, clumsily, or inefficiently under the staggering influence of dazzling beauty. 75-76 How canst... her love This, like all the remarks of Suffolk, as far as line 100, is spoken by him aside. 77-78 She's beautiful... won Cf. Tit. Andr., II, i, 82-83: "She is a woman, therefore may be wooed. She is a woman, therefore may be won." 84 a cooling card anything that damps one's ardour, throws cold water on one'shopes.

Perhaps I shall be rescued by the French; And then I need not crave his courtesy. Suf. Sweet madam, give me hearing in a cause--Mar. Tush, women have been captivate ere now. Suf. Lady, wherefore talk more
