The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from The Duchess of Padua by Oscar Wilde:|
Go, my Lord Justice, search the statutes well,
Nor let this brawling traitor have his way.
Go, my Lord Justice, search thy conscience well,
Nor let a man be sent to death unheard.
[Exit the LORD JUSTICE and the Judges.]
Silence, thou evil genius of my life!
Thou com'st between us two a second time;
This time, my lord, I think the turn is mine.
