Pericles, [1.1.111-119]. Antiochus. “Young prince of Tyre,/ Though by the tenor of our strict edict,/ your exposition misinterpreting,/ We might proceed to cancel of your days,/ yet hope, suceeding from so fair a tree/ As your fair self, doth tune us otherwise,/ Forty days longer we do respite you,/ If by which time our secret be undone,/ This mercy shows we”ll joy in such a son.”
