Romeo and Juliet in Friar Laurence’s Cell
“SO smile the heavens upon this holy act
That after-hours with sorrow chide us not.
Here comes the lady; O, so light a foot
Will ne’er wear out the everlasting flint.”
“Good even to my ghostly confessor!”
“Romeo shall thank thee, daughter, for us both.”
“As much to him, else are his thanks so much.”
“Ah, Juliet, if the measure of thy joy
Be heaped like mine, and that thy skill be more
To blazon it, then sweeten with thy breath
This neighbor air, an let rich music’s tongue
Unfold the imagined happiness that both
Receive in either by this dear encounter.”
“My true love is grown to such excess
I cannot sum up half my sum of wealth.”
Lavishly illustrated with historical paintings and portraits from each era, this book is ideal for costume students, professional costumiers, and anyone who wants to recreate authentic yet wearable period styles.
