THE PROLOGUE.

Prologue and Dramatis Personae

The general welcomes Tamburlaine receiv'd,

When he arrived last upon the[1] stage,

Have made our poet pen his Second Part,

Where Death cuts off the progress of his pomp,

And murderous Fates throw all his triumphs[2] down.

But what became of fair Zenocrate,

And with how many cities' sacrifice

He celebrated her sad[3] funeral,

Himself in presence shall unfold at large.
