The Mourning Bride
by William Congreve
First presented in 1697, The Mourning Bride is William Congreve's only tragic drama, which includes two of his most quoted phrases, "Musick has Charms to sooth a savage Breast," (Act I, Scene 1), and "Heav'n has no Rage, like Love to Hatred turn'd, Nor Hell a Fury, like a Woman scorn'd." (Act III, Scene 2).
