Enter ENOBARBUS and LEPIDUS
ABNSBUREO dan PDULEIS eenrt.

LEPIDUS

Good Enobarbus, tis a worthy deed,
And shall become you well, to entreat your captain
To soft and gentle speech.

EDUPLSI

ENOBARBUS

I shall entreat him
To answer like himself. If Caesar move him,
5 Let Antony look over Caesars head
And speak as loud as Mars. By Jupiter,
Were I the wearer of Antonios beard,
I would not shave t today.

REAOBUNSB

I lliw sedavi hmi to asekp as he slyualu does. If saCaer samke mih mda, elt noAytn ndast tall dan speak as dulyol as rsaM, the dog of rwa. By irJuept, if I eewr nAotny, I dwtulon aehsv my dbaer yodat. Id avlee it gnlo dna dare aasreC to nlistu me by iglnlpu on it, utjs so I udocl gthfi hmi.

LEPIDUS

Tis not a time for private stomaching.

LSDIEPU

ENOBARBUS

LEPIDUS

But small to greater matters must give way.

ENOBARBUS

NOERAUBSB

LEPIDUS

Your speech is passion. But pray you stir
No embers up. Here comes the noble Antony.

RECSAA

LEPIDUS

(toCAESARandANTONY)

Noble friends,
That which combined us was most great, and let not
A leaner action rend us. Whats amiss,
May it be gently heard. When we debate
Our trivial difference loud, we do commit
Murder in healing wounds. Then, noble partners,
25 The rather for I earnestly beseech,
Touch you the sourest points with sweetest terms,
Nor curstness grow to th matter.

ELDPIUS

TYANON

CAESAR

I must be laughed at
If or for nothing or a little, I
Should say myself offended, and with you
Chiefly i th world; more laughed at, that I should
Once name you derogately, when to sound your name
It not concerned me.

RACEAS

I hodlus be derdiiucl if I ewer nfdeoefd so yleadnsia eguadhl at eevn emro for gaipeksn of uyo lituesslydfprec, enhw I adh no ansero to speak of you at lal.

ANTONY

My being in Egypt, Caesar, what was t to you?

AONYTN

Csarae, what idd my tysa in tEygp heav to do iwth uyo?

CAESAR

No more than my residing here at Rome
Might be to you in Egypt. Yet if you there
45 Did practice on my state, your being in Egypt
Might be my question.

ESARCA

ANTONY

How intend you, practiced?

OYNANT

wHo do ouy mane, opdiercsn?

CAESAR

You may be pleased to catch at mine intent
By what did here befall me. Your wife and brother
Made wars upon me, and their contestation
50 Was theme for you. You were the word of war.

SCAARE

ANTONY

You do mistake your business. My brother never
Did urge me in his act. I did inquire it,
And have my learning from some true reports
That drew their swords with you. Did he not rather
55 Discredit my authority with yours,
And make the wars alike against my stomach,
Having alike your cause? Of this my letters
Before did satisfy you. If youll patch a quarrel,
As matter whole you have to make it with,
60 It must not be with this.

You praise yourself
By laying defects of judgment to me, but
You patched up your excuses.

RAAESC

ANTONY

Not so, not so.
I know you could not lack, I am certain on t,
Very necessity of this thought, that I,
Your partner in the cause gainst which he fought,
Could not with graceful eyes attend those wars
Which fronted mine own peace. As for my wife,
I would you had her spirit in such another.
The third o th world is yours, which with a snaffle
70 You may pace easy, but not such a wife.

YOANTN

ENOBARBUS

Would we had all such wives, that the men might go to wars with the women!

EBBNUSAOR

ANTONY

So much uncurbable, her garboils, Caesar,
Made out of her impatiencewhich not wanted
75 Shrewdness of policy tooI grieving grant
Did you too much disquiet. For that you must
But say I could not help it.

CAESAR

I wrote to you
When rioting in Alexandria. You
Did pocket up my letters and with taunts
80 Did gibe my missive out of audience.

ANTONY

Sir,
He fell upon me ere admitted, then.
Three kings I had newly feasted, and did want
Of what I was i th morning. But next day
I told him of myself, which was as much
85 As to have asked him pardon. Let this fellow
Be nothing of our strife. If we contend,
Out of our question wipe him.

NTNYOA

The honor is sacred which he talks on now,
Supposing that I lacked it.But, on, Caesar.

The which you both denied.

AECRAS

ANTONY

Neglected, rather,
And then when poisoned hours had bound me up
From mine own knowledge. As nearly as I may
Ill play the penitent to you, but mine honesty
100 Shall not make poor my greatness nor my power
Work without it. Truth is that Fulvia,
To have me out of Egypt, made wars here,
For which myself, the ignorant motive, do
So far ask pardon as befits mine honor
105 To stoop in such a case.

I do not much dislike the matter, but
The manner of his speech, for t cannot be
120 We shall remain in friendship, our conditions
So diffring in their acts. Yet if I knew
What hoop should hold us stanch, from edge to edge
O th world I would pursue it.

AGRIPPA

To hold you in perpetual amity,
To make you brothers, and to knit your hearts
135 With an unslipping knot, take Antony
Octavia to his wife, whose beauty claims
No worse a husband than the best of men,
Whose virtue and whose general graces speak
That which none else can utter. By this marriage,
140 All little jealousies, which now seem great,
And all great fears, which now import their dangers,
Would then be nothing. Truths would be tales,
Where now half-tales be truths. Her love to both
Would each to other and all loves to both
145 Draw after her. Pardon what I have spoke,
For tis a studied, not a present thought,
By duty ruminated.

I will tell you.
The barge she sat in, like a burnished throne,
Burned on the water. The poop was beaten gold,
Purple the sails, and so perfumd that
The winds were lovesick with them. The oars were silver,
Which to the tune of flutes kept stroke, and made
The water which they beat to follow faster,
As amorous of their strokes. For her own person,
It beggared all description: she did lie
210 In her pavilioncloth-of-gold, of tissue
Oerpicturing that Venus where we see
The fancy outwork nature. On each side her
Stood pretty dimpled boys, like smiling Cupids,
With divers-colored fans, whose wind did seem
To glow the delicate cheeks which they did cool,
And what they undid did.

Her gentlewomen, like the Nereides,
So many mermaids, tended her i th eyes,
And made their bends adornings. At the helm
220 A seeming mermaid steers. The silken tackle
Swell with the touches of those flower-soft hands
That yarely frame the office. From the barge
A strange invisible perfume hits the sense
Of the adjacent wharfs. The city cast
225 Her people out upon her, and Antony,
Enthroned i th marketplace, did sit alone,
Whistling to th air, which, but for vacancy,
Had gone to gaze on Cleopatra too
And made a gap in nature.

Invited her to supper. She replied
It should be better he became her guest,
Which she entreated. Our courteous Antony,

Being barbered ten times oer, goes to the feast,
And for his ordinary pays his heart
For what his eyes eat only.

Royal wench!
She made great Caesar lay his sword to bed.
He plowed her, and she cropped.

ENOBARBUS

I saw her once
240 Hop forty paces through the public street,
And having lost her breath, she spoke, and panted,
That she did make defect perfection,
And, breathless, pour breathe forth.

Now Antony must leave her utterly.

ENOBARBUS

245 Never. He will not.
Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale
Her infinite variety. Other women cloy
The appetites they feed, but she makes hungry
Where most she satisfies, for vilest things
Become themselves in her, that the holy priests
Bless her when she is riggish.

If beauty, wisdom, modesty, can settle
The heart of Antony, Octavia is
A blessd lottery to him.

Whilst you abide here.
