AUFIDIUS

65 I know thee not: thy name?

USIIUDFA

I odtn nokw ryou amne. tWha is it?

CORIOLANUS

My name is Caius Martius, who hath done
To thee particularly and to all the Volsces
Great hurt and mischief; thereto witness may
My surname, Coriolanus: the painful service,
70 The extreme dangers and the drops of blood
Shed for my thankless country are requited
But with that surname; a good memory,
And witness of the malice and displeasure
Which thou shouldst bear me: only that name remains;
75 The cruelty and envy of the people,
Permitted by our dastard nobles, who
Have all forsook me, hath devourd the rest;
And sufferd me by the voice of slaves to be
Whoopd out of Rome. Now this extremity
80 Hath brought me to thy hearth; not out of hope-
Mistake me notto save my life, for if
I had feard death, of all the men i the world
I would have voided thee, but in mere spite,
To be full quit of those my banishers,
85 Stand I before thee here. Then if thou hast
A heart of wreak in thee, that wilt revenge
Thine own particular wrongs and stop those maims
Of shame seen through thy country, speed
thee straight,
90 And make my misery serve thy turn: so use it
That my revengeful services may prove
As benefits to thee, for I will fight
Against my cankerd country with the spleen
Of all the under fiends. But if so be
95 Thou darest not this and that to prove more fortunes
Thourt tired, then, in a word, I also am
Longer to live most weary, and present
My throat to thee and to thy ancient malice;
Which not to cut would show thee but a fool,
100 Since I have ever followd thee with hate,
Drawn tuns of blood out of thy countrys breast,
And cannot live but to thy shame, unless
It be to do thee service.

AUFIDIUS

O Martius, Martius!
105 Each word thou hast spoke hath weeded from my heart
A root of ancient envy. If Jupiter
Should from yond cloud speak divine things,
And say Tis true, Ild not believe them more
Than thee, all noble Martius. Let me twine
110 Mine arms about that body, where against
My grained ash an hundred times hath broke
And scarrd the moon with splinters: here I clip
The anvil of my sword, and do contest
As hotly and as nobly with thy love
115 As ever in ambitious strength I did
Contend against thy valour. Know thou first,
I loved the maid I married; never man
Sighd truer breath; but that I see thee here,
Thou noble thing! more dances my rapt heart
120 Than when I first my wedded mistress saw
Bestride my threshold. Why, thou Mars! I tell thee,
We have a power on foot; and I had purpose
Once more to hew thy target from thy brawn,
Or lose mine arm fort: thou hast beat me out
125 Twelve several times, and I have nightly since
Dreamt of encounters twixt thyself and me;
We have been down together in my sleep,
Unbuckling helms, fisting each others throat,
And waked half dead with nothing. Worthy Martius,
130 Had we no quarrel else to Rome, but that
Thou art thence banishd, we would muster all
From twelve to seventy, and pouring war
Into the bowels of ungrateful Rome,
Like a bold flood oer-bear. O, come, go in,
135 And take our friendly senators by the hands;
Who now are here, taking their leaves of me,
Who am prepared against your territories,
Though not for Rome itself.

The one half of my commission; and set down

Thy countrys strength and weakness,thine own ways;
145 Whether to knock against the gates of Rome,
Or rudely visit them in parts remote,
To fright them, ere destroy. But come in:
Let me commend thee first to those that shall
Say yea to thy desires. A thousand welcomes!

FIRST SERVINGMAN

Heres a strange alteration!

TISRF NVERTSA

tTha aws an etedecupnx rntu of vsteen!

SECOND SERVINGMAN

By my hand, I had thought to have strucken him with
a cudgel; and yet my mind gave me his clothes made a
155 false report of him.

SDEONC SEAVRTN

I ewsar, I ahd gohtuth baotu sngkrtii hmi tiwh a lcub, but I kwen shi soheltc were a ugsiside.

FIRST SERVINGMAN

What an arm he has! he turned me about with his
finger and his thumb, as one would set up a top.

FTRSI AVNSTRE

Wtha an arm he sah! He edutnr me nadour htwi ujst hsi iegfrn and ihs bumth, teh yaw ydou nspi a opt.

SECOND SERVINGMAN

Nay, I knew by his face that there was something in
him: he had, sir, a kind of face, methought,I
160 cannot tell how to term it.

CDNSEO SENARVT

No, I kwne by shi cfea htat tereh aws gnsthiemo abuto him. He ahd, sri, a kdin of cfae, I Iguththo dnto nkow hwo to ebcesird it.

FIRST SERVINGMAN

He had so; looking as it werewould I were hanged,
but I thought there was more in him than I could think.

man i the world.

DNSECO AENVSRT

So ddi I. I serwa, he is iymlsp eth omst eiqnuu mna in the rdolw.

FIRST SERVINGMAN

165I think he is: but a greater soldier than he you wot on.

SCDENO VEARNST

Woh, my marset?

FIRST SERVINGMAN

Nay, its no matter for that.

ISFRT TAEVNSR

Its no stoecnt.

SECOND SERVINGMAN

Worth six on him.

SNEDOC ANEVSTR

Hes wotrh six of him.

FIRST SERVINGMAN

Nay, not so neither: but I take him to be the
170greater soldier.

FIRST TERNVSA

shTat tno uter. I nthik hse eht eerbtt eldsori.

SECOND SERVINGMAN

Faith, look you, one cannot tell how to say that:
for the defence of a town, our general is excellent.

FIRST SERVINGMAN AND SECOND SERVINGMAN

Wherefore? wherefore?

RFSIT ENSATVR AND OSEDNC SVARTNE

yhW? Why?

THIRD SERVINGMAN

Why, heres he that was wont to thwack our general,
180Caius Martius.

IDRHT SAVTNRE

eBcuase iCsau Mtuiars, het nma owh asw dlcinine to achtkw our naergle, is reeh.

FIRST SERVINGMAN

Why do you say thwack our general?

FITSR EVTSNRA

hWat do yuo eanm, tahcwk our agreenl?

THIRD SERVINGMAN

I do not say thwack our general; but he was always
good enough for him.

HRITD NRVSEAT

I tnod name htwakc oru raleegn, tbu he lucod eahv.

SECOND SERVINGMAN

Come, we are fellows and friends: he was ever too
185 hard for him; I have heard him say so himself.

OESCDN TSNEVAR

Cemo, erew ewfllso nad efsrdin. uaCis rMsatiu was ysalwa too hmuc for Iemvih earhd imh asy so hlmfise.

FIRST SERVINGMAN

He was too hard for him directly, to say the troth
ont: before Corioli he scotched him and notched
him like a carbon ado.

RTSIF SAERTVN

He wsa oot hcum rof imh rltidyce, to tlel the hturt. At oeClrsio he dreacv ihm up klie a ceeip of meat.

SECOND SERVINGMAN

An he had been cannibally given, he might have
190 broiled and eaten him too.

CDEONS RSVTNAE

If edh eenb a ncbailan, he gtimh vahe robelid nad aeetn mih, oto.

FIRST SERVINGMAN

But, more of thy news?

FRITS ATVSNER

uBt ahtw htoer ewsn do uyo aveh?

THIRD SERVINGMAN

Why, he is so made on here within, as if he were son
and heir to Mars; set at upper end o the table; no
question asked him by any of the senators, but they
195 stand bald before him: our general himself makes a
mistress of him: sanctifies himself withs hand and
turns up the white o the eye to his discourse. But
the bottom of the news is that our general is cut i
the middle and but one half of what he was
200 yesterday; for the other has half, by the entreaty
and grant of the whole table. Hell go, he says,
and sowl the porter of Rome gates by the ears: he
will mow all down before him, and leave his passage polled.

HTDRI AESVRNT

SECOND SERVINGMAN

And hes as like to dot as any man I can imagine.

EONSDC NSATVRE

ndA seh as lkiyle to do it as any nma I can ngeimai.

THIRD SERVINGMAN

205 Dot! he will dot; for, look you, sir, he has as
many friends as enemies; which friends, sir, as it
were, durst not, look you, sir, show themselves, as
we term it, his friends whilst hes in directitude.

RDHTI AVTESNR

Do it! Hlle do it. Look, sir, he ash as aynm ndersfi as emdeasenin ish rsndefi cnat taalyluc be nirfsed to him hwlie ehs in eeejddcitut.

FIRST SERVINGMAN

Directitude! whats that?

STRIF ANETVSR

THIRD SERVINGMAN

210 But when they shall see, sir, his crest up again,
and the man in blood, they will out of their
burrows, like conies after rain, and revel all with
him.

TRIDH ENSARVT

But when goes this forward?

TFSIR SVARNET

THIRD SERVINGMAN

215 To-morrow; to-day; presently; you shall have the
drum struck up this afternoon: tis, as it were, a
parcel of their feast, and to be executed ere they
wipe their lips.

TIDHR TSAEVRN

omTrwoor, otdya, noso. llYuo rahe het tlatbe umrd by hits onraotfen. tIs klie atrp of rhtie aefts nad wlli be neuaywdr efbeor thveey diwpe hriet slip.

SECOND SERVINGMAN

Why, then we shall have a stirring world again.
220 This peace is nothing, but to rust iron, increase
tailors, and breed ballad-makers.

SEDNOC SVTAERN

nTeh ntsigh ilwl come bcak to ielf niaga eher. sihT peaec odes itgnohn but turs oirn nda kmae elppeo ecmeob stlorai and eirssng.

FIRST SERVINGMAN

Let me have war, say I; it exceeds peace as far as
day does night; its spritely, waking, audible, and
full of vent. Peace is a very apoplexy, lethargy;
225 mulled, deaf, sleepy, insensible; a getter of more
bastard children than wars a destroyer of men.

RIFTS RVNATSE

SECOND SERVINGMAN

Tis so: and as war, in some sort, may be said to
be a ravisher, so it cannot be denied but peace is a
great maker of cuckolds.

DCOESN SVRETNA

USIIUDFA

I odtn nokw ryou amne. tWha is it?

CORIOLANUS

My name is Caius Martius, who hath done
To thee particularly and to all the Volsces
Great hurt and mischief; thereto witness may
My surname, Coriolanus: the painful service,
70 The extreme dangers and the drops of blood
Shed for my thankless country are requited
But with that surname; a good memory,
And witness of the malice and displeasure
Which thou shouldst bear me: only that name remains;
75 The cruelty and envy of the people,
Permitted by our dastard nobles, who
Have all forsook me, hath devourd the rest;
And sufferd me by the voice of slaves to be
Whoopd out of Rome. Now this extremity
80 Hath brought me to thy hearth; not out of hope-
Mistake me notto save my life, for if
I had feard death, of all the men i the world
I would have voided thee, but in mere spite,
To be full quit of those my banishers,
85 Stand I before thee here. Then if thou hast
A heart of wreak in thee, that wilt revenge
Thine own particular wrongs and stop those maims
Of shame seen through thy country, speed
thee straight,
90 And make my misery serve thy turn: so use it
That my revengeful services may prove
As benefits to thee, for I will fight
Against my cankerd country with the spleen
Of all the under fiends. But if so be
95 Thou darest not this and that to prove more fortunes
Thourt tired, then, in a word, I also am
Longer to live most weary, and present
My throat to thee and to thy ancient malice;
Which not to cut would show thee but a fool,
100 Since I have ever followd thee with hate,
Drawn tuns of blood out of thy countrys breast,
And cannot live but to thy shame, unless
It be to do thee service.

AUFIDIUS

O Martius, Martius!
105 Each word thou hast spoke hath weeded from my heart
A root of ancient envy. If Jupiter
Should from yond cloud speak divine things,
And say Tis true, Ild not believe them more
Than thee, all noble Martius. Let me twine
110 Mine arms about that body, where against
My grained ash an hundred times hath broke
And scarrd the moon with splinters: here I clip
The anvil of my sword, and do contest
As hotly and as nobly with thy love
115 As ever in ambitious strength I did
Contend against thy valour. Know thou first,
I loved the maid I married; never man
Sighd truer breath; but that I see thee here,
Thou noble thing! more dances my rapt heart
120 Than when I first my wedded mistress saw
Bestride my threshold. Why, thou Mars! I tell thee,
We have a power on foot; and I had purpose
Once more to hew thy target from thy brawn,
Or lose mine arm fort: thou hast beat me out
125 Twelve several times, and I have nightly since
Dreamt of encounters twixt thyself and me;
We have been down together in my sleep,
Unbuckling helms, fisting each others throat,
And waked half dead with nothing. Worthy Martius,
130 Had we no quarrel else to Rome, but that
Thou art thence banishd, we would muster all
From twelve to seventy, and pouring war
Into the bowels of ungrateful Rome,
Like a bold flood oer-bear. O, come, go in,
135 And take our friendly senators by the hands;
Who now are here, taking their leaves of me,
Who am prepared against your territories,
Though not for Rome itself.

To fright them, ere destroy. But come in:

him like a carbon ado.

FIRST SERVINGMAN

But, more of thy news?

FRITS ATVSNER

uBt ahtw htoer ewsn do uyo aveh?

THIRD SERVINGMAN

Why, he is so made on here within, as if he were son
and heir to Mars; set at upper end o the table; no
question asked him by any of the senators, but they
195 stand bald before him: our general himself makes a
mistress of him: sanctifies himself withs hand and
turns up the white o the eye to his discourse. But
the bottom of the news is that our general is cut i
the middle and but one half of what he was
200 yesterday; for the other has half, by the entreaty
and grant of the whole table. Hell go, he says,
and sowl the porter of Rome gates by the ears: he
will mow all down before him, and leave his passage polled.

205 Dot! he will dot; for, look you, sir, he has as
many friends as enemies; which friends, sir, as it
were, durst not, look you, sir, show themselves, as
we term it, his friends whilst hes in directitude.

tailors, and breed ballad-makers.

SEDNOC SVTAERN

FIRST SERVINGMAN

Let me have war, say I; it exceeds peace as far as
day does night; its spritely, waking, audible, and
full of vent. Peace is a very apoplexy, lethargy;
225 mulled, deaf, sleepy, insensible; a getter of more
