William Shakespeare (1564–1616).  The Oxford Shakespeare.  1914.
 
As You Like It
 
Act III. Scene I.
 
A Room in the Palace.
 
Enter DUKE FREDERICK, OLIVER, Lords, and Attendants.
  Duke F.  Not seen him since! Sir, sir, that cannot be:
But were I not the better part made mercy,
I should not seek an absent argument        5
Of my revenge, thou present. But look to it:
Find out thy brother, wheresoe’er he is;
Seek him with candle; bring him, dead or living,
Within this twelvemonth, or turn thou no more
To seek a living in our territory.        10
Thy lands and all things that thou dost call thine
Worth seizure, do we seize into our hands,
Till thou canst quit thee by thy brother’s mouth
Of what we think against thee.
  Oli.  O that your highness knew my heart in this!        15
I never lov’d my brother in my life.
  Duke F.  More villain thou. Well, push him out of doors;
And let my officers of such a nature
Make an extent upon his house and lands.
Do this expediently and turn him going.  [Exeunt.        20
