ORLANDOI remember, Adam, that’s exactly why my father only left me a thousand crowns in his will. And as you know, my father commanded my brother, Oliver, to make sure that I was brought up well—and that’s where my sadness begins. Oliver keeps my brother Jaques away at school, and everyone says he’s doing extremely well there. But he keeps me at home in the country—to be precise, he keeps me stuck at home but doesn’t support me. I ask you, is this any way to treat a gentleman as nobly born as I am, to pen me in like an ox?

30 | | OLIVERIndeed, sir, find something better to do and get lost for a while. |
| | ORLANDOShould I tend your pigs and eat husks with them? When did I waste so much money that I ended up this poor? |
| | OLIVERDo you know where you are, sir? |

35 | | ORLANDOYes, sir, very well—I’m here in your orchard. |
| | OLIVERDo you know whom you’re talking to? |...
