I' the afternoon to sleep: there thou may'st brain him,
Having first seiz'd his books; or with a log
He has brave utensils, (for so he calls them,)
Ste. Is it so brave a lass?
Cal. Ay, lord; she will become thy bed, I warrant,
And bring thee forth brave brood.
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; Wilt thou destroy him then? Ste. Ay, on mine honour.
Ari. This will I tell my master. Cal. Thou mak'st me merry: I am full of pleasure;
Let us be jocund: Will you troll the catch
Ste. At thy request, monster, I will do reason, any reason: Come on, Trinculo, let us sing.
Seb. The next advantage Will we take thoroughly.
Ant. Let it be to-night; For, now they are oppress'd with travel, they Will not, nor cannot, use such vigilance, As when they are fresh.
Seb. I say, to-night: no more.
Solemn and strange musick; and PROSPERO above, invisible. Enter several strange Shapes, bringing in a banquet; they dance about it with gentle actions of salutation; and, inviting the king, &c. to eat, they depart.
Alon. What harmony is this? my good friends, hark!
Gon. Marvellous sweet musick!
Alon. Give us kind keepers, heavens! What were these?
Seb. A living drollery: Now I will believe, That there are unicorns; that, in Arabia There is one tree, the phoenix' throne; phoenix
At this hour reigning there.
Ant. I'll believe both;
And what does else want credit, come to me,
Though fools at home condemn them.
I should report this now, would they believe me?
Their manners are more gentle-kind, than of
Pro. Honest lord,
Thou hast said well; for some of you there pre
Are worse than devils.
Alon. 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.
Fran. They vanish'd strangely.
They have left their viands behind; for we have
Will't please you taste of what is here?
Gon. Faith, sir, you need not fear: When we
Who would believe that there were mountaineers,
Alon. I will stand to, and feed,
Thunder and lightning. Enter ARIEL, like a
[Seeing Alon. Seb. &c. draw their swords. And even with such like valour, men hang and drown
Their proper selves. You fools! I and my fellows
Of whom your swords are temper'd, may as well
Are like invulnerable: if you could hurt,
The powers, delaying, not forgetting, have
Against your peace: Thee of thy son, Alonso,
(Which here, in this most desolate isle, else falls
He vanishes in thunder : then, to soft musick, enter the Shapes again, and dance with mops and mowes, and carry out the table.
Pro. Aside.] Bravely the figure of this harpy
Perform'd, my Ariel; a grace it had, devouring:
And these, mine enemies, are all knit up
And his and my loved darling.
[Exit Prospero from above.
SCENE I.-Before Prospero's Cell.
Fer. I do believe it,
Against an oracle.
Pro. Then, as my gift, and thine own acquisition
Worthily purchas'd, take my daughter: But
For quiet days, fair issue, and long life,
Our worser Genius can, shall never melt
Mine honour into lust; to take away
Seb. But one fiend at a time,
Ant. I'll be thy second. [Exeunt Seb. and Ant.
poison given to work a great time after,
Or night kept chain'd below.
Sit then, and talk with her, she is thine own.-
Pro. Thou and thy meaner fellows your last service
Did worthily perform; and I must use you
Pro. Ay, with a twink.
Ari. Before you can say, Come, and go,
Will be here with mop and mowe:
Pro. Dearly, my delicate Ariel: Do not ap-
Till thou dost hear me call.
Pro. Look, thou be true; do not give dalliance Too much the rein; the strongest oaths are straw To the fire i' the blood: be more abstemious, Or else, good night, your vow!
Fer. I warrant you, sir;
The white-cold virgin snow upon my heart
A Masque. Enter IRIS.
Iris. Ceres, most bounteous lady, thy rich leas Of wheat, rye, barley, vetches, oats, and pease; Thy turfy mountains, where live nibbling sheep,
The edge of that day's celebration,
When I shall think, or Phoebus' steeds are foun- And flat meads, thatch'd with stover, them to keep;
Now come, my Ariel; bring a corollary,
Thy banks with peonied and lilied brims,
To make cold nymphs chaste crowns; and thy
Whose shadow the dismissed bachelor loves,
Ari. What would my potent master? here I am. Where thou thyself dost air: The queen o' the sky, VOL. I.
Pro. Aside. I had forgot that foul conspiracy Of the beast Caliban, and his confederates, Against my life; the minute of their plot Is almost come.-[To the Spirits.]Well done; -avoid ;-no more.
Fer. This is most strange: your father's in some passion That works him strongly.
Mira. Never till this day,
Saw I him touch'd with anger so distemper'd.
Be not disturb'd with my
Fer. Mira. We wish your peace. [Exeunt.
Pro. Come with a thought :-I thank you :- | Shall hoodwink this mischance: therefore, speak Ariel, come.
All's hush'd as midnight yet.
Ari. Thy thoughts 1 cleave to: What's thy pleasure? Pro. Spirit,
We must prepare to meet with Caliban.
Ari. Ay, my commander: when I presented Ceres,
I thought to have told thee of it; but I fear'd, Lest I might anger thee.
Pro. Say again, where didst thou leave these varlets?
Ari. I told you, sir, they were red-hot with drinking;
So full of valour, that they smote the air
Advanc'd their eye-lids, lifted up their noses,
Which enter'd their frail shins: at last I left them
I' the filthy mantle pool beyond your cell,
Trin. Ay, but to lose our bottles in the pool,Ste. There is not only disgrace and dishonour in that, monster, but an infinite loss.
Trin. That's more to me than my wetting: yet this is your harmless fairy, monster.
Ste. I will fetch off my bottle, though I be o'er ears for my labour.
Cal. Pr'ythee, my king, be quiet: Seest thou here,
This is the mouth o' the cell: no noise, and
Do that good mischief, which may make this island
Thine own for ever, and I, thy Caliban,
Ste. Give me thy hand: I do begin to have bloody thoughts.
Trin. O king Stephano! O peer! O worthy Stephano! look, what a wardrobe here is for thee!
Cal. Let it alone, thou fool; it is but trash. Trin. O, ho, monster; we know what belongs to a frippery :-O king Stephano!
Ste. Put off that gown, Trinculo; by this hand, I'll have that gown.
Trin. Thy grace shall have it.
Cal. The dropsy drown this fool! what do
To doat thus on such luggage? Let's along,
Ste. Be you quiet, monster.-Mistress line, is not this my jerkin? Now is the jerkin under the line now, jerkin, you are like to lose your hair, and prove a bald jerkin.
Trin. Do, do: We steal by line and level, and't like your grace.
Ste. I thank thee for that jest; here's a garI am king of this country: Steal by line and ment for't: wit shall not go unrewarded, while level, is an excellent pass of pate; there's another garment for't.
Trin. Monster, come, put some lime upon your fingers, and away with the rest.
Cal. I will have none on't: we shall lose our time,
And all be turn'd to barnacles, or to apes
Ste. 'Monster, lay-to your fingers; help to bear this away, where my hogshead of wine is, or I'll turn you out of my kingdom: go to, carry this.
Trin. And this. Ste. Ay, and this.
A noise of hunters heard. Enter divers Spirits, in shape of hounds, and hunt them about; PROSPERO and ARIEL setting them on.
Pro. Hey, Mountain, hey!
