Group 2

Queen Anne is addressing Richard, Earl of Gloucester, after he murdered her husband King Edward and the latter’s father, King Henry.


Cursed be the hand that made these fatal holes!
Cursed be the heart that had heart to do it!
Cursed be the blood that let this blood from hence! [...]
Foul devil, for God’s sake, hence, and trouble us not;
For thou1 hast made the happy earth thy2 hell,
Fill’d it with cursing cries and deep exclaims. [...]
Blush, blush, thou lump of foul deformity; [...]
O God, which this blood madest, revenge his death! [...]
Either heaven with lightning strike the murderer dead,
Or earth, gape open wide and eat him quick.

Richard III (Act I, scene 2), William Shakespeare, around 1593.
