Stand further, — Come proceed.
Is it so brave a lass?
Ste. Monster, I will kill this man: his daughter and I will be king and queen: (save our graces !) and Trinculo and thyself shall be viceroys :-Dost thou like the plot, Trinculo?
Ste. Give me thy hand; I am sorry I beat thee: but, while thou livest, keep a good tongue in thy head.
Cal. Within this half hour will he be asleep;
Ay, onomine honor.
Cal. Thou mak'st me merry: I am full of pleasure;
Ste. At thy request, monster, I will do reason, any reason: Come on, Trinculo, let us sing.
[ARIEL plays the tune on a tabor and pipe. Ste. What is this same?
Trin. This is the tune of our catch, played by the picture of No-body.
Ste. If thou beest a man, show thyself in thy likeness : if thou beest a devil, take't as thou list.
Trin. O, forgive me my sins !
Cal. Art thou afeard ?
Cal. Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises,
Ste. This will prove a brave kingdom to me, where I shall have my music for nothing.
Cal. When Prospero is destroyed.
fter, do our work.
Ste. Lead, monster; we'll follow.— I would, I could see this taborer: he lays it on. Trin. Wilt come? I'll follow, Stephano. [Exeunt.
SCENE III. - Another Part of the island. Enter A LONZO, SEBASTIAN, ANTONIO, GONZALO, ADRIAN,
FRANCISCO, and others. Gon.
By'r lakin, I can go no further, sir; My old bones ache; here's a maze trod, indeed, Through forth-rights, and meanders! by your patience, I needs must rest me.
Old lord, I cannot blame thee, Who am myself attached with weariness, To the dulling of my spirits : sit down, and rest. Even here I will put off my hope, and keep it No longer for my flatterer: he is drowned, Whom thus we stray to find; and the sea mocks Our frustrate search on land: Well, let him go. Ant. I am right glad that he's so out of hope.
[Aside to SEBASTIAN. Do not, for one repulse, forego the purpose That you resolved to effect. Seb.
The next advantage Will we take thoroughly.
Let it be to-night:
For, now they are oppressed with travel, they
I say, to-night: no more. Solemn and strange music; and PROSPERO above, invisible.
Enter several strange Shapes, bringing in a banquet ;
Seb. A living drollery: Now I will believe
I'll believe both;
If in Naples
I cannot too much muse, Such shapes, such gesture, and such sound, expressing (Although they want the use of tongue) a kind Of excellent dumb discourse. Pro.
Praise in departing.
[Aside. Fran. They vanished strangely. Seb.
No matter, since They have left their viands behind; for we have stomachs.Will’t please you taste of what is here? Alon.
Not I. Gon. Faith, sir, you need not fear: When we were boys, Who would believe that there were mountaineers, Dew-lapped like bulls, whose throats had hanging at them Wallets of flesh ? or that there were such men,
Whose heads stood in their breasts? which now we find,
I will stand to, and feed,
[Seeing Alon. SEB. fc. draw their swords. And even with such like valor, men hang and drown Their
proper selves. You fools ! I and my fellows
And a clear life ensuing.
He vanishes in thunder ; then, to soft music, enter the
out the table.
Pro. [Aside.] Bravely the figure of this harpy hast thou Performed, my Ariel; a grace it had, devouring: Of my instruction hast thou nothing 'bated, In what thou hadst to say: so, with good life, And observation strange, my meaner ministers Their several kinds have done: my high charms work, And these, mine enemies, are all knit up In their distractions: they now are in my power ; And in these fits I leave them, whilst I visit Young Ferdinand (whom they suppose is drowned) And his and my loved darling.
[Erit PROSPERO from above. Gon. I'the name o' something holy, sir, why stand you In this strange stare? Alon.
O, it is monstrous! monstrous ! Methought, the billows spoke, and told me of it; The winds did sing it to me; and the thunder, That deep and dreadful organ-pipe, pronounced The name of Prosper; it did bass my trespass. Therefore my son i' the ooze is bedded; and I'll seek him deeper than e'er plummet sounded, And with him there lie mudded.
But one fiend at a time, I'll fight their legions o'er. Ant.
I'll be thy second.
[Exeunt SEB. and Ant. Gon. All three of them are desperate; their great guilt, Like poison given to work a great time after, Now ʼgins to bite the spirits : I do beseech you That are of suppler joints, follow them swiftly, And hinder them from what this ecstasy May now provoke them to. Adr.
Follow, I pray you.
SCENE I. — Before Prospero's Cell.
