    Lightbulb Text and author

    A literary riddle.

    The proponent writes a small part of the poem, play or prose text and the other players must guess. Of course the text has to be in English, and the original preferably in English too. The winner proposes the next riddle, and so on.

    I`m starting with:

    "The quality of mercy is not strained.

    It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven

    Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest:

    It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.

    'Tis mightiest in the mightiest; it becomes

    The throned monarch better than his crown."

    Who wrote this and what text is this?

    Good luck!

    You got it, Ecurb . But please correct the name of the author before proposing the next riddle.

    Well you tried anyway. I tried to answer you before. LitNet is specially difficult today, on account of the change of layout, maybe.
