The Unicorn as Lucrece

..—the Unicorn as Strumpet, Amber as Troy, Dworkin as Paris—
'Show me the strumpet that began this stir,
That with my nails her beauty I may tear.
Thy heat of lust, fond Paris, did incur
This load of wrath that burning Troy doth bear:
Thy eye kindled the fire that burneth here;
And here in Troy, for trespass of thine eye,
The sire, the son, the dame, and daughter die.
The Rape of Lucrece — W. Shakespeare
