not where to hide my head: yond same cloud cannot
Enter Stephano, finging.
[Drinks. . Sings. The master, the swabber, the boatswain and I,
The gunner, and his mate,
, Még, and Marrian, and Margery,
For fire had a tongue with a tang,
Would cry to a sailor, go bang :
Then to sea, boys, and let her go hang:
Cal. Do not torment me, oh!
Ste. What's the matter have we devils here: do you put tricks upon's with savages, and men of Inde? ha? I have not scap'd drowning, to be afraid now of your four legs; for it hach been said, as proper.a man, ,
as ever went upon four legs, cannot make him give;' ground ; and it shall be laid so again, while Stephano: breathes at his nostrils.
Cal. The spirit torments me, oh! Ste. This is some monster of the isle, with four legs, who has got, as I take it, an ague : where the devil should he learn our language? I will give him some relief, if it be but for that: if I can recover him, and keep, him tame, and get to Naples, with him, he's a. present for any Emperor that ever trod on neats-leather.
Cal. Do not tarment me, pr’y.thee ;. I'll bring my.. wood home faster.
Sie. He's in his fit now; and does not talk after the wiselt: he shall talte of my bottle. If he never drunk wine afore, it will go near to remove his fit; if I can, recover him, and keep him tame, I will not take too much for him; he shall pay, for him, that hath him, and that foundly.
Cal. Thou do me yet but litue urt ;: thou wilt anon, I know it, by thy trembling: now Profper works,
Ste. Come on your ways ; open your mouth; bere is that which will give language to you, cat ; open your month ; this will make your making, I can tell.. you, and that foundly': you cannot tell who's your friend-, open your chaps again.
Trin. I thould know that voice: it should be-but, he is. drown'd; and these are devils; O! defend me,
Ste. Four legs and cwo voices; a most delicate monfter ! (17) his forward voice now is to speak well of his friend; his backward voice is to utter foul speeches,. and to detract. If all the wine in my bottle will:
(17) His forward voice row is to. Speak well of tis. friend. The facetious Author of Hudibras seems to have had this pallage in eye, in one part of his description of Fame:
Two trumpets the doth sound at once,
recover him, I will help his ague: come! Amen! I will pour some in thy other mouch.,
Ste. Doth thy other mouth call me? mercy! mercy ! this is a deyil, and no monfer: I will leave him; I have no Jong fpoon.
Trin. Stephano.! If thou best Stephano, touch me, and speak to me; for I am Trinculo; e, not afraid, thy good friend Trinculo.
ste. If thou beelt Trinculo, come forth, I'll pull theeby the leffer legs: if any be Trinculd's legs, these are: they. Thou art very Írınculo, indeed : how cam'ít thou to be the fiege of this moon-calf ? can he vent Trinculo's!
Trin. I took him to be kill'd with a thunder-stroke: but art thou, not diown'd, Crethano? I hope now, thou art not drown'd: is the form over-blown. I hid me under the dead mcon-calf's gaberdine, for fear of the horm: and art theu living, Stephano? O Stepbaro, two Neapolitans fcap'd!
Ste. Priythee, do not turn me about, my stomach is not constant.
Cal. These be fine things, an if they be not sprights:. that's a brave god, and bears celestial liquor; i will kneel to him
Ste. How didit thou scape? how cam'f thou hithes? Iwear, by this bottle, how thou cam't hither: 1 escap'd upon a butt of sack, which the sailors heav'd over-board, by this bottle! which I made of the bark of a tree, vinch mine own hands, since I was cail a-fhore.
Cal. I'll swear, upon that bottle, to be thy true subject; for the liquor is not ea thly:
Ste. Here: swear then, how escaped'i thou. Trin. Swom a-thore, man, like a duck; I can swim like a duck, I'll be sworn.
Ste. Here, kiss the book. Though thou canst swim like a dụck, thou art made like a goose,
Trin. O Stephuno, haft any more of this? Ste
. The whole butt, man; my cellar is in a rock by: th' sea-side, where my wine is hid. How now, moon calf, how does thine ague?
Cal. Hast thou not dropt from heav'n?
Ste. Out o'th-moon, I do assure thee. I was the man in th' moon,, when time was.
Cał. I have seen thee in her; and I do adore thee:my
mistress shew'd me thee, and thy dog and thy busb. Ste. Come, swear to that;. kiss the book: I will furnish it anon with new contents: swear..
Trin. By this good light, this is a very shallow mon-. fter: (18) I afraid of him?' a very: shallow monster:. the man i'th' moonia moft poor credulous monster: well drawn, monfter, in good footh.
Cal. I'll few thee every fertile inch of th’ifte, and: I wil! kiss thy foot: I pr'ythee, be my god.
Trir. By this light, a most perfidious and drunken. monster; when his god's asleep, he'll rob his bottle.
Cal. l'll kiss thy, foot. I'll swear myself thy subject. Ste. Come on then ; down, and swear.
Triv. I Mall laugh myself to deaths at this puppy: headed monster : a most scurvy moniter! I could find. in my heart to beat him.
Ste. Come, kiss.
Trin. But that the poor monster's in drink: an:: abominable monster! Cal. I'll thew thee the best springs; I'll pluck thee
Trin. A most ridiculous monger, to make a wonderof a poor drunkard.
(18) I afraid of him? a very shallow monfter: -] It is to be observ’d, Trinculo is not charg’d with any fear of Caliban; and therefare this seems to. come in abruptly; but in this confits the true humour. His own consciousness, that he had been terribly afraid of him, after the fright was over, drew' out this brag. This seems to be one of Shakespeare's fine touches of nature: for that Trincalo bad been horribly frighten'd at the monster, and shook with fear of bim, while he lay under his gaberdine, is plain, from what Ca'iban says, , while he is lying there? Thou doft me yet but little harm; thou, wilt anon, I. koow by thy trembling:
Cal. I pry'thee, let me bring thee where crabs growi:
Ste. I pr’ythee now, lead the way without any more. talking. Trincule, the King and all our company else being drown'd, we will inherit here. Here, hear my bottle; fellow Trinculo, we'll fill him by and by again. Cal. (Sings drunkenly); Farewel, majter ; farewel,
