Coriolanus [2011]








Martius wrote:
"What's the matter, you dissentious
         rogues,
         That, rubbing the poor itch of your
         opinion,
         Make yourselves scabs?

         What would you have, you curs?
         He that trusts to you,
         Where he should find you lions, finds you

                        HARES;
         Where foxes, geese.

         Who deserves greatness
         Deserves your hate…"


Martius wrote:
         "You souls of geese,
         That bear the shapes of men!"


Martius wrote:
"...praise me not.
         My work hath yet not warmed me.
         The blood I drop is more medicinal
         Than dangerous to me."


Martius wrote:
        "To brag unto them "Thus I did, and thus!"
         Show them the unaching scars which I
         should hide,
         As if I had received them for the hire
         Of their breath only!

.. What must I say?
         "Look, sir, my wounds.
         I got them in my country's service."

         ...No, it was never my desire yet to trouble
         the poor with begging."


Martius wrote:
         "I will not do it!
         Lest I cease to honor mine own truth
         And by my body's action teach my mind
         A most inherent baseness."



Martius wrote:
"Let them pronounce death, exile,
         Flaying, pent to linger
         But with a grain a day - I would not buy
         Their mercy at the price of one fair
         word!

         YOU COMMON CRY OF CURS!

         Whose breath I hate
         As reek of the rotten fens, whose loves I

                        PRIZE
         As the dead carcasses of unburied men
         That do corrupt my air...

         I BANISH YOU!

         There is a world elsewhere."


Martius wrote:
"[flattery is] a condition they account
gentle: and since the wisdom of their choice is
rather to have my hat than my heart, I will practice
the insinuating nod and be off to them most
counterfeitly; that is, sir, I will counterfeit the
bewitchment of some popular man and give it
bountiful to the desirerers."


Menenius wrote:
"His nature is too noble for this world:
   He would not flatter Neptune for his trident,
Or Jove for his power to thunder. His heart's his mouth:
What his breast forges, that his tongue must vent:
And, being angry, does forget that ever
He heard the name of death." [Act III, Scene I, Lines 256-260]
