"Thou art a fool: she robs thee of thy name;
And thou wilt show more bright and seem more virtuous
When she is gone. Then open not thy lips:
Firm and irrevocable is my doom
Which I have pass'd upon her; she is banish'd."
With each new "disappearance" at court, a little more of Duke Frederick's sanity slips away.
Where is that daughter of his?

"But were I not the better part made mercy,
I should not seek an absent argument
Of my revenge, thou present. But look to it:
Find out thy brother, wheresoe'er he is;
Seek him with candle; bring him dead or living
Within this twelvemonth, or turn thou no more
To seek a living in our territory.
Thy lands and all things that thou dost call thine
Worth seizure do we seize into our hands,
Till thou canst quit thee by thy brothers mouth
Of what we think against thee."
A cry in the night causes Oliver to reveal what he endured during his last days at the court at the mercy of the increasingly unstable Duke Frederick to his new wife.

In the Forest of Arden, anything is possible.
-A tale of adventure, love, and madness.
The other is daughter to the banish'd duke,
And here detain'd by her usurping uncle,
To keep his daughter company; whose loves
Are dearer than the natural bond of sisters. (I.ii)
