Doll Tears It Up

Another Monday, another insult from Shakespeare.


Last week we featured one of Doll Tearsheet’s richly-worded insults from 2 Henry IV, directed by her at Pistol. This week’s insult is a followup that comes just a line or two later in Act Two:

Away, you bottle-ale rascal! you basket-hilt stale juggler, you! (2 Henry IV, II.4.128-129)

We won’t dwell on the circumstances of her abuse, but let’s just say he deserved it.
