Act III, Scene 8 A plain near Actium.
Enter OCTAVIUS CAESAR, and TAURUS, with his army, marching
Act III, Scene 9 Another part of the plain.
Enter MARK ANTONY and DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS
Act III, Scene 10 Another part of the plain.
CANIDIUS marcheth with his land army one way over
|DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS||Naught, naught all, naught! I can behold no longer:
The Antoniad, the Egyptian admiral,
With all their sixty, fly and turn the rudder:
To see't mine eyes are blasted.
|SCARUS||Gods and goddesses,
All the whole synod of them!
|DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS||What's thy passion!|
|SCARUS||The greater cantle of the world is lost
With very ignorance; we have kiss'd away
Kingdoms and provinces.
|DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS||How appears the fight?|
|SCARUS||On our side like the token'd pestilence,
Where death is sure. Yon ribaudred nag of Egypt,--
Whom leprosy o'ertake!--i' the midst o' the fight,
When vantage like a pair of twins appear'd,
Both as the same, or rather ours the elder,
The breese upon her, like a cow in June,
Hoists sails and flies.
|DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS||That I beheld:
Mine eyes did sicken at the sight, and could not
Endure a further view.
|SCARUS||She once being loof'd,
The noble ruin of her magic, Antony,
Claps on his sea-wing, and, like a doting mallard,
Leaving the fight in height, flies after her:
I never saw an action of such shame;
Experience, manhood, honour, ne'er before
Did violate so itself.
|DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS||Alack, alack!|
|CANIDIUS||Our fortune on the sea is out of breath,
And sinks most lamentably. Had our general
Been what he knew himself, it had gone well:
O, he has given example for our flight,
Most grossly, by his own!
|DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS||Ay, are you thereabouts?
Why, then, good night indeed.
|CANIDIUS||Toward Peloponnesus are they fled.|
|SCARUS||'Tis easy to't; and there I will attend
What further comes.
|CANIDIUS||To Caesar will I render
My legions and my horse: six kings already
Show me the way of yielding.
|DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS||I'll yet follow
The wounded chance of Antony, though my reason
Sits in the wind against me.
