Titus Andronicus Act II. Sc V.

Marcus speaking to his neice Lavinia

"Ah, now thou turn'st away thy face for shame!"

(Juliet & Romeo Act II Sc. 2)

I suppose no one wd think in the dark when not seen for Shaspeare makes Juliet say

Juliet — "Thou know'st, the mask of night is on my face;
Else would a maiden blush bepaint my cheek
For that which thou hast heard me speak to night.
