Mistress Ford

Mistress Ford

“Stand not amaz’d; here is no remedy.
In love, the heavens themselves do guide the state;
Money buys lands, and wives are sold be fate.”

  • —Shakespeare’s Merry Wives of Windsor (V.v.137-9)

My take, listen to the whole play, the women are in charge. Just sayin’.

Mistress Ford

It’s another passage that I couldn’t deliver clearly, but I’m not complaining.



About the author: Born and raised in East Texas, Kramer Wetzel, settled in a South Austin trailer park before trailer parks were cool. He now lives in San Antonio, Texas.
