(Enter Anne Hathaway glad in funeral garments.
She is holding a red rose)
'What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would small as sweet.'
Call I Anne;
Hathaway Anne, Shakespeare Anne
Daughter Anne, Mother Anne, Sister Anne
Your wife Anne.
And call you William;
Son William, Brother William, Heir William, Father William,
William of Stratford.
Or names that hath no William.
Call'd simply 'Bard of Avon'.
(She points to his coffin)
Or names that hath molded this mere player,
Into Kings, Heroes, Merchants!
Thou call'st him what you will
Thou call'st him these names,
As I call him my husband, William.
(She places the rose on the coffin beside the book and exits)
