FUSIUIDA

I odtn onwk ouyr anem. athW 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.

140 Therefore, most absolute sir, if thou wilt have
The leading of thine own revenges, take
The one half of my commission; and set down
As best thou art experienced, since thou knowst
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!
150 And more a friend than eer an enemy;
Yet, Martius, that was much. Your hand: most welcome!

RLCAOOIUNS nad SFIUUDAI eitx. eTh tow ernSavst mceo rowfdra.

FIRST SERVINGMAN

Heres a strange alteration!

TRISF NAVETSR

taTh saw an enxectudpe runt of nsvete!

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.

ONSDEC ESVTRAN

I sawre, I hda utoghth tbuao rtinskgi mih ihwt a culb, tbu I newk ihs chseolt weer a igusdise.

FIRST SERVINGMAN

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

TIRSF NVSEART

ahtW an rma he has! He udnert me aourdn wtih usjt shi nrfgei dna hsi uthmb, eth wya youd pisn a pto.

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.

EODNSC TESNARV

No, I wken by sih efca taht hrete aws imotghsne uoatb hmi. He adh, rsi, a kdni of acef, I tgoIhtuh dtno wokn ohw to sbriedec it.

but I thought there was more in him than I could think.

STIFR VTERSNA

SECOND SERVINGMAN

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

SFRTI SNETRVA

FIRST SERVINGMAN AND SECOND SERVINGMAN

Wherefore? wherefore?

FTSIR ETRVSNA DAN EOSDCN NEVSRTA

THIRD SERVINGMAN

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

ITDHR RVENSTA

Bucease suaCi iauMtsr, the nma owh swa iienclnd to ktwhac uro rlagnee, is ehre.

FIRST SERVINGMAN

Why do you say thwack our general?

FRITS ATRNEVS

THIRD SERVINGMAN

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

RTHDI TVNREAS

I tond aenm htkcaw our aeerngl, btu he lcoud vhea.

SECOND SERVINGMAN

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

SCEOND NSRATVE

emoC, reew leowlfs dan insefdr. Cisua rtsMiua aws aswyal oot cumh rof emIhvi rhaed mhi ays so ihemfls.

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.

TFSRI EANTSVR

He asw oot hcum orf mih letydirc, to ltle the utrth. At olCoresi he adercv hmi up liek a eicep of taem.

SECOND SERVINGMAN

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

CNOESD NRETAVS

If ehd neeb a calaninb, he gihmt heav erodilb adn etena mhi, oto.

FIRST SERVINGMAN

But, more of thy news?

IFSTR TNSAERV

uBt hawt ohrte wsen do uoy eavh?

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.

DHTRI SATVERN

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

SNEODC SVENART

dnA hse as ykllei to do it as yna anm I nca eimaign.

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.

DHTIR AVRSETN

Do it! eHll do it. kLoo, isr, he ahs as myna rnefids as deianeensm ihs rdfsnie tanc uctlaaly be fenirsd to hmi hewil seh in djuceetetid.

FIRST SERVINGMAN

Directitude! whats that?

IFRST STRNEVA

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.

TIRDH SNVTREA

FIRST SERVINGMAN

But when goes this forward?

FITSR TREVNSA

neWh ilwl this npahpe?

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.

HTDRI EATSRNV

oorTomrw, adoty, onos. Yloul erah hte ebatlt rdum by sthi toenranof. sIt ikel atrp of tierh easft and liwl be ryuwdean ebofre tyehve epwdi eitrh lpis.

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.

ODNSEC NASRTVE

hTen sgtnih illw oemc kacb to feli ignaa eher. Tihs pecea eods ngtinho ubt rtsu ionr dna mkae pepoel meoecb aritsol adn siengsr.

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.

SRFTI TERASNV

I ays: iveg me raw. tIs ebtter ntha ecape eht way githn is ttrebe hnat ayd. stI yrlsetpi, iknwga, olud, dna ditsreip. eeaPc is hte iifditnnoe of taniontgsa, of egltrayh. sIt ulld, adef, selyep, and ilennfgeu. It caeetsr mreo sdaabtr hnidrlec tnha sarw esrtdyo nme.

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.
