The Reconciliation of the Montagues and Capulets over the Dead Bodies of Romeo and Juliet

1853-55: Agnes Scott College at Decatur, Georgia

An excerpt from Romeo and Juliet
(Act V, Scene III)

CAPULET O brother Montague, give me thy hand:
This is my daughter's jointure, for no more
Can I demand.
MONTAGUE For I will raise her statue in pure gold;
That while Verona by that name is known,
There shall no figure at such rate be set
As that of true and faithful Juliet.
CAPULET As rich shall Romeo's by his lady's lie;
Poor sacrifices of our enmity!
PRINCE A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.

William Shakespeare
