Fellow, commend my service to her beauty;
Tell her, I have chastis'd the amorous Trojan,
And am her knight by proof.
Sero.

I go, my lord.

(Exit Servant.

Enter Agamemnon.

Agam. Renew, renew! The fierce Polydamus
Hath beat down Menon : bastard Margarelon
Hath Doreus prisoner ;
And stands colossus-wise, waving his beam,
Upon the pashedt corses of the kings
Epistrophus and Cedius: Polixenes is slain;
Amphimachus, and Thoas, deadly hurt;
Patroclus ta'en, or slain; and Palamedes
Sore hurt and bruised: the dreadful Sagittary
Appals our numbers; haste we, Diomed,
To reinforcement, or we perish all.

Enter Nestor.

Nest. Go, bear Patroclus' body to Achilles ; And bid the snail-pac'd Ajax arm for shame.There is a thousand Hectors in the field: Now here he fights on Galathe his horse, And there lacks work; anon, he's there afoot, And there they fly, or die, like scaled scullst Before the belching whale; then is he yonder, And there the strawy Greeks, ripe for his edge, Fall down before him, like the mower's swath: Here, there, and every where, he leaves, and takes; Dexterity so obeying appetite, That what he will, he does; and does so much, That proof is call'd impossibility.

• Lance.

Shoal of fish.

+ Bruised, crushed.

Enter Ulysses.

Ulys. O, courage, courage, princes! great Achilles
Is arming, weeping, cursing, vowing vengeance:
Patroclus' wounds have rous'd his drowsy blood,
Together with his mangled Myrmidons,
That noseless, handless, hack'd and chipp'd, come to

bim,
Crying on Hector. Ajax hath lost a friend,
And foams at mouth, and he is arm'd, and at it,
Roaring for Troilus; who hath done to-day
Mad and fantastick execution;
Engaging and redeeming of himself,
With such a careless force, and forceless care,
As if that luck, in very spite of cunning,
Bade him win all.

Enter Ajax.

Ajax. Troilus ! thou coward Troilus! (Erit. Dio.

Ay, there, there. Nest. So, so, we draw together.

Enter Achilles.

Achil.

Where is this Hector? Come, come, thou boy-queller*, show thy face; Know what it is to meet Achilles angry. Hector! where's Hector? I will none but Hector.

(Ereunt.

# Killer.

SCENE VI.

Another part of the field.

Enter Ajax. Ajar. Troilus, thou coward Troilus, show thy

head!

Enter Diomedes.
Dio. Troilus, I say! where's Troilus?
Ajar.

What would'st thou?
Dio. I would correct him.
Ajar. Were I the general, thou should'st have my

office, Ere that correction:—Troilas, I say; what, Troilus!

Enter Troilus.

Tro. O traitor Diomed !-turn thy false face, thou

traitor,
And pay thy life thou ow'st me for my horse!

Dio. Ha! art thou there?
Ajar. I'll fight with him alone: stand, Diomed.
Dio. He is my prize, I will not look upon.
Tro. Come both, you cogging + Greeks; have at
you both.

[Exeunt, fighting.

Enter Hector. Hect. Yea, Troilus? O, well fought, my youngest

brother!

* Not be a looker-on.

Lying.

Enter Achilles.

Achil. Now do I see thee: Ha!--Have at thee,

Hector.
Hect. Pause, if thou wilt.

Achil. I do disdain thy courtesy, proud Trojan.
Be bappy, that my arms are out of use:
My rest and negligence befriend thee now,
But thou anon shalt hear of me again;
Till when, go seek thy fortune.

[Erit. Hect.

'Fare thee well :I would have been much more a fresher man, Had I expected thee.-How now, my brother?

[ocr errors][merged small]

Hect. Stand, stand, thou Greek; thou art a goodly

mark: No? wilt thou not ?- I like thy armour well; I'll frush fit, and unlock the rivets all, But I'll be master of it:-Wilt thou not, beast,

abide ? Why then, fly, on, I'll hunt thee for thy hide.

(Exeunt.

• Prevail over.

+ Care.

SCENE VII.

Enter Achilles, with Myrmidons.

Achil. Come here about me, you my Myrmidons; Mark what I say.-Attend me where I wheel: Strike pot a stroke, but keep yourselves in breath; And when I have the bloody Hector found, Empale him with your weapons round about; In fellest manner execute* your arms. Follow me, sirs, and my proceedings eye: It is decreed-Hector the great must die. (Ereunt.
