The Fickle Moon

AMSND-GRE9VK

Which lines from the play reference the Elizabethan idea that the moon was transient and fickle and could cause that type of behavior in people?

A

“Now the hungry lion roars, / And the wolf behowls the moon;”

B

“The iron tongue of midnight hath told twelve: / Lovers, to bed; 'tis almost fairy time.”

C

“To live a barren sister all your life: / Chanting faint hymns to the cold fruitless moon.”

D

“Lovers and madmen have such seething brains, / Such shaping fantasies, that apprehend / More than cool reason ever comprehends. /The lunatic, the lover and the poet / Are of imagination all compact:.. / Or in the night, imagining some fear, / How easy is a bush supposed a bear!”

E

“How chance Moonshine is gone before / Thisbe comes back and finds her lover?”
