Quote #4

ADRIANA
Since that my beauty cannot please his eye,
I'll weep what's left away, and weeping die. (2.1.114)

Adriana has just spent ample time railing against her husband. Ultimately, though, it seems her despair comes from her own preoccupations, rather than anger at her husband. She suffers because she lacks her husband’s love, and similar to Egeon, she raises sentiments of dying as a result of oppressive suffering.
