kisses “if your four negatives make your two affirmatives, etc. —So that, conclusions to be as,” TWELFTH NIGHT, v. 1. 18. “One cannot but wonder that this passage should have perplexed the commentators. In Marlowe's Lust's Dominion the Queen says to the Moor:
‘Come, let's kisse.
Moor. Away, away.
Queen. No, no, sayes I; and twice away, sayes stay.’
Sir Philip Sidney has enlarged upon this thought in the sixty-third stanza of his Astrophel and Stella(FARMER) . But Lust's Dominion was certainly not from Marlowe's pen. See the Account of Marlowe and his Writings, p. xlvi. prefixed to his Works, ed. Dyce, 1858.
