The SCENE, in the beginning of the fifth g&, is in Mantua, during all the rest of the play, in and near Verona.
WO boufholds, both alike in dignity,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes,
A pair of far-cross'd lovers take their life; Whofe mifadventur'd piteous overthrows
Do, with their death, bury their parents' ftrife. The fearful paffage of their death-mark'd love, And the continuance of their parent's rage.
• The plot of this play is taken from an Italian novel af Bandelle. VOL. VIII. A
