  • Epigraph: Within the bonds of marriage, tell me, Brutus,/ Is it excepted I should know no secrets/ That appertain to you? Am I yourself/ But, as it were, in sort of limitation, To keep with you at meals, comfort your bed,/ And talk to you sometimes? Dwell I but in the suburbs/ Of your good pleasure? If it be no more,/ Portia is Brutus' harlot, not his wife. - Julius Caesar, 2.1.280287
