Act 3 - Shakespeare and the Art of Verbal Seduction


More from Shakespeare and the Verbal Art of Seduction by Wayne Hill and Cynthia Ottchen and these are listed under the section of Icebreaking.

From PERICLES:


1. Are you flesh and blood?
Have you a working pulse, and are no fairy
Motion? Well, speak on. Where were you born?

From ROMEO AND JUIET

2. One fairer than my love! The all-seeing sun
Ne'er saw {your} match since the world began

3. Heaven and earth...do meet in thee at once.

4. {You are} the dearest morsel of the earth.

From THE TEMPEST

5. Now I will believe there are unicorns.

Next time I'll share some of my favorites from the chapter on Enticements and Inducements...
