William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
Hero’s Epitaph
By William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 
From “Much Ado about Nothing,” Act V. Scene 3

DONE to death by slanderous tongues
Was the Hero that here lies;
Death, in guerdon of her wrongs,
Gives her fame which never dies:
So the life that died with shame,        5
Lives in death with glorious fame.
