The Prologue

Summary
The Prologue enters and explains that he is not here to make the audience laugh, but to tell of serious and noble matters that will awaken their pity. Those who want a bawdy comedy will be disappointed. The Prologue asks the audience to imagine that the characters are alive, as the play will present only the truth. Though the characters occupy positions of power, the play will show how "mightiness meets misery."
