Otho the Great: A Tragedy in Five Acts: Act V SCENE III

  • An inner Court of the Castle.
  • Enter SIGIFRED, GONFRID, and THEODORE, meeting.
  • Theodore. Was ever such a night?
  • Sigifred. What horrors more?
  • Things unbelieved one hour, so strange they are,
  • The next hour stamps with credit.
  • Theodore. Your last news?
  • Gonfrid. After the page’s story of the death
  • Of Albert and Duke Conrad?
  • Sigifred. And the return
  • Of Ludolph with the Princess.
  • Gonfrid. No more, save
  • And the sweet lady, fair Erminia,
  • From prison.
  • Theodore. Where are they now? Hast yet heard?
  • Gonfrid. With the sad Emperor they are closeted;
  • I saw the three pass slowly up the stairs,
  • The lady weeping, the old abbot cowl’d.
  • Sigifred. What next?
  • Theodore. I ache to think on ’t.
  • Gonfrid. ’Tis with fate.
  • Theodore. One while these proud towers are hush’d as death.
  • Gonfrid. The next our poor prince fills the arched rooms
  • With ghastly ravings. Sig. I do fear his brain.
  • I will see more. Bear you so stout a heart? (Exeunt into the Castle.)
