I shak'd you, Sir, and cry'd; as mine eyes open'd,
Alon. Lead off this ground, and let's make farther search
Heavens keep him from these beasts!
Lead away. [Exit with the others.
SCENE II.-Another part of the Island.
A noise of thunder heard.
Enter TRINCULO. Trin. Here's neither bush nor shrub to bear off any weather at all, and another storm brewing ; I hear it sing i’ the wind : yond' same black cloud, yond' huge one, looks like a foul bombard that would shed his liquor. If it should thunder, as it did before, I know not where to hide my head : yond' same cloud cannot choose but fall by pailfuls.—What have we here? a man or a fish? Dead or alive? A fish: he smells like a fish; a very ancient and fish-like smell ; a kind of, not of the newest, Poor-John. A strange fish! Were I in England now, (as once I was,) and had but this fish
painted, not a holiday fool there but would give a piece of silver : there would this monster make a man: any strange beast there makes a man. When they will not give a doit to relieve a lame beggar, they will lay out ten to see a dead Indian. Legg'd like a man! and his fins like arms! Warm, o' my troth! I do now let loose my opinion, hold it no longer; this is no fish, but an islander, that hath lately suffered by a thunder-bolt. [Thunder.] Alas! the storm is come again : my best way is to creep under his gaberdine; there is no other shelter hereabout: misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows. I will here shroud, till the dregs of the storm be past.
Enter STEPHANO, singing; a bottle in his hand,
I shall no more to sea, to sea,
Here shall I die ashore :-
The master, the swabber, the boatswain, and I,
The gunner, and his mate,
But none of us car'd for Kate ;
Would cry to a sailor, Go, hang!
Then to sea, boys, and let her go hang.
Ste. What's the matter? Have we devils here? Do you put tricks upon us with savages, and men of Inde? Ha! I have not 'scaped drowning, to be afeard now of your four legs; for it hath been said, as proper a man as ever went on four legs cannot make him give ground; and it shall be said so again, while Stephano breathes at nostrils.
Cal. The spirit torments me: 0!
Ste. This is some monster of the isle, with four legs, who hath 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 neat's-leather.
Cal. Do not torment me, prythee: I'll bring my wood home faster.
Ste. He's in his fit now, and does not talk after the wisest. He shall taste of my bottle: if he have 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 soundly.
Cal. Thou dost me yet but little hurt; thou wilt anon, I know it by thy trembling : now Prosper works upon thee.
Ste. Come on your ways: open your mouth; here is that which will give language to you, cat. Open your mouth : this will shake your shaking, I can tell you, and that soundly: you cannot tell who's your friend; open your chaps again.
Trin. I should know that voice: it should be—but he is drowned, and these are devils. O! defend me !
Ste. Four legs, and two voices,-a most delicate monster! 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 recover him, I will help his ague. Come,-Amen! I will pour some in thy other mouth.
Trin, Stephano !
Ste. Doth thy other mouth call me ? Mercy! mercy! This is a devil, and no monster: I will leave him ; I have no long spoon.
Trin. Stephano !—if thou beest Stephano, touch me, and speak to me; for I am Trinculo :—be not afeard,—thy good friend Trinculo.
Ste. If thou beest Trinculo, come forth. I'll pull thee by the lesser legs : if any be Trinculo's legs, these are they. Thou art very Trinculo, indeed! How cam’st thou to be the siege of this mooncals? Can he vent Trinculos ?
Trin. I took him to be killed with a thunder-stroke.—But art thou not drowned, Stephano? I hope now, thou art not drowned. Is the storm overblown ? I hid me under the dead moon-calf's gaberdine for fear of the storm. And art thou living, Stephano? O Stephano! two Neapolitans 'scaped ?
Ste. Prythee, do not turn me about: my stomach is not constant. Cal. (Aside.] These be fine things, an if they be not sprites.
That's a brave god, and bears celestial liquor :
I will kneel to him. Ste. How didst thou 'scape? How cam'st thou hither? swear by this bottle, how thou cam’st hither. I escaped upon a butt of sack, which the sailors heaved over-board, by this bottle! which I made of the bark of a tree, with mine own hands, since I was cast ashore.
Cal. I'll swear, upon that bottle, to be thy true subject; for the liquor is not earthly.
Ste. Here: swear, then, how thou escapedst.
Trin. Swam ashore, 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 duck, thou art made like a goose.
Trin. O Stephano! hast any more of this ?
Ste. The whole butt, man: my cellar is in a rock by the sea-side, where my wine is hid. How now, moon-calf! how does thine
Cal. Hast thou not dropped from heaven ?
Ste. Out o' the moon, I do assure thee: I was the man in the moon, when time was.
Cal. I have seen thee in her, and I do adore thee: my mistress showed me thee, and thy dog, and thy bush.
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 monster :-I afeard of him ?-a very weak monster.—The man i' the moon !-a most poor credulous monster !—Well drawn, monster, in good sooth.
Cal. I'll show thee every fertile inch o'the island ; and I will kiss thy foot. I prythee, be my god.
Trin. By this light, a most perfidious and drunken monster : when his god's asleep, he 'll rob his bottle.
Cal. I'll kiss thy foot: I'll swear myself thy subject.
Trin. I shall laugh myself to death at this puppy-headed monster. A most scurvy monster! 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 show thee the best springs ; I'll pluck thee berries ;
I'll fish for thee, and get thee wood enough.
Thou wondrous man.
And I with my long nails will dig thee pig-nuts;
Young sea-mells from the rock. Wilt thou go with me? Ste. I pr’ythee now, lead the way, without any more talking.Trinculo, the king and all our company else being drowned, we will inherit here.—[To Cal.] Here ; bear my bottle.—Fellow Trinculo, we'll fill him by and by again. Cal.
Farewell, master; farewell, farewell. [Sings drunkenly. Trin. A howling monster; a drunken monster.
No more dams I'll make for fish;
Nor fetch in firing
Ban, 'Ban, Ca-Caliban,
Has a new master-Get a new man.
Enter FERDINAND, bearing a log.
Enter MIRANDA ; and PROSPERO at a distance.
Alas! now, pray you,
O, most dear mistress !
If you 'll sit down,
