La casada con el buboso.

Dialogo. Lettor. Mezentio.[1]

L. Se˝or Mezentio muy mejor ventura
En las de mas tengays. M. Por que llamado
Mezentio soy de vos? L. porque la dura
Justišia d’el aveys resušitado.
Metistes vuestra hija en sepultura,
Casandola con ese hombre aplagado,
Que pensays que hazen tales desconšiertos,
Sino juntar los bivos con los muertos?[2]


1. áThe metre is not stated for this verse.

2. áSee Vergil, Aeneid, 8.483-88, for the crimes of Mezentius, the Etruscan king who opposed Aeneas on his arrival in Italy. He inflicted a dreadful fate on his victims by tying them face to face with a corpse and leaving them to die.
