William Shakespeare (1564–1616). The Oxford Shakespeare. 1914.

Act II. Scene IV.

The Third Part of King Henry the Sixth

Another Part of the Field

Excursions.Enter RICHARD and CLIFFORD.

Rich.Now, Clifford, I have singled thee alone.

Suppose this arm is for the Duke of York,

And this for Rutland; both bound to revenge,

Wert thou environ’d with a brazen wall.

Clif.Now, Richard, I am with thee here alone.

This is the hand that stabb’d thy father York,

And this the hand that slew thy brother Rutland;

And here’s the heart that triumphs in their death

And cheers these hands that slew thy sire and brother,

To execute the like upon thyself;

And so, have at thee![They fight.WARWICK enters; CLIFFORD flies.

Rich.Nay, Warwick, single out some other chase;

For I myself will hunt this wolf to death.[Exeunt.
