Critical ApparatusEnter Lord Cerymon with a seruant.Link 1
Cery. Phylemon, hoe.Enter Phylemon.
Phyl. Doth my Lord call?Critical Apparatus2
Cery. Get Fire and meat for these poore men,
3T'as been a turbulent and stormie night.Critical Apparatus4
Seru. I haue [seen] many; but such a night as this,
Critical Apparatus5Till now, I neare endured:6
Cery. Your Maister will be dead ere you returne,
Critical Apparatus7There's nothing can be ministred to Nature,
8That can recouer him: giue this to the Pothecary,
9And tell me how it workes.Enter two Gentlemen.
1. Gent. Good morrow.Critical Apparatus10
2. Gent. Good morrow to your Lordship,
Critical Apparatus11Why doe you stirre so early?
1. Gent. Sir,
12Our lodgings standing bleake vpon the sea,
13Shooke as the earth did quake:
Critical Apparatus14The very principals did seeme to rend
15And all to topple: pure surprize and feare,
Critical Apparatus16Made me to quite the house.17
2. Gent. That is the cause we trouble you so early,
18T'is not our husbandry.
Cery. O you say well.pg 1395 Critical Apparatus19
1. Gent. But I much maruaile that your Lordship [should,]
20Hauing rich tire about you, at these early howers,
Critical Apparatus21Shake off the golden slumber of repose;
22Tis most strange
Critical Apparatus23Nature should be so conuersant with Paine,
Critical Apparatus24Being thereto not compelled.
Cery. I hold it euer
25Vertue and Cunning, were endowments greater,
26Then Noblenesse & Riches; carelesse Heyres,
Critical Apparatus27May the two latter darken and expend;
28But Immortalitie attendes the former,
29Making a man a god: T'is knowne, I euer
30Haue studied Physicke: through which secret Art,
E3v Link 31By turning ore Authorities,
32Togeather with my practize, made famyliar,
33To me and to my ayde, the blest infusions
Critical Apparatus34That dwels in Vegetiues, in Mettals, Stones:
Critical Apparatus35And [so] can speake of the disturbances
Critical Apparatus36That Nature works, and of her cures; which doth giue me
Critical Apparatus37A more content [and cause] of true delight
38Then to be thirsty after tottering honour,
Critical Apparatus39Or tie my pleasure vp in silken Bagges,
Critical Apparatus40To please the Foole and Death.
2. Gent. Your honour has
41Through Ephesus, poured foorth your charitie,
42And hundreds call themselues, your Creatures; who
Critical Apparatus43By you, haue been restored; And not your knowledge,
44Your personall payne, but euen your Purse still open,
45Hath built Lord Cerimon, such strong renowne,
Critical Apparatus46As time shall neuer.Enter two or three with a Chist.pg 1396 Critical Apparatus47
Seru. So, lift there.
Cer. What's that?
Ser. Sir, euen now
Critical Apparatus48[The sea tost vp] vpon our shore this Chist;
49Tis of some wracke.
Cer. Set't downe, let's looke vpon't.Critical Apparatus50
2. Gent. T'is like a Coffin, sir.
Cer. What ere it be,
Critical Apparatus51T'is woondrous heauie; Wrench it open straight:
52If the Seas stomacke be orecharg'd with Gold,
Critical Apparatus53T'is [by] a good constraint of [fickle] Fortune
54It belches vpon vs.
2. Gent. T'is so, my Lord.Critical Apparatus55
Cer. How close tis caulkt & [bittumed], did the sea cast it vp?Critical Apparatus56
Ser. I neuer saw so huge a billow sir,
Critical Apparatus57As tost it vpon shore.
Cer. Wrench it open
58Soft; it smels most sweetly in my sense.
2. Gent. A delicate Odour.59
Cer. As euer hit my nostrill: so, vp with it.
60Oh you most potent Gods! what's here, a Corse?Critical Apparatus61
2. Gent. Most strange.
Cer. Shrowded in Cloth of state,
pg 139762Balmed and entreasured with full bagges of Spices,
Critical Apparatus63A Pasport to
64Apollo, perfect mee in the Characters:
E4r Link 65 Heere I giue to vnderstand,
66 If ere this Coffin driues aland;
67 I King Pericles haue lost
68 This Queene, worth all our mundaine cost:
69 Who finds her, giue her burying,
70 She was the Daughter of a King:
71 Besides, this Treasure for a fee,
72 The Gods requit his charitie.
73If thou liuest Pericles, thou hast a heart,
Critical Apparatus74That euer cracks for woe, this chaunc'd to night.Critical Apparatus75
2.Gent. Most likely sir.
Cer. Nay certainely to night,
Critical Apparatus76For looke how fresh she looks they were too [rash],
77That threw her in the sea. Make a Fire within;
78Fetch hither all my Boxes in my Closet,
79Death may vsurpe on Nature many howers,
80And yet the fire of life kindle againe
Critical Apparatus81The ore-prest spirits: I heard of an Egiptian
Critical Apparatus82That had 9. howers lien dead,
Critical Apparatus83Who was by good applyaunce recouered.Critical ApparatusEnter one with Napkins and Fire.
Critical Apparatus84Well sayd, well sayd; the fire and clothes:
Critical Apparatus85The rough and Wofull Musick that we haue,
pg 139886Cause it to sound beseech you:
Critical Apparatus87The Violl once more; how thou stirr'st thou blocke?
88The Musicke there: I pray you giue her ayre:
Critical Apparatus89Gentlemen, this Queene will liue, Nature awakes
Critical Apparatus90A warmth [breaths] out of her; she hath not been
91Entranc'st aboue fiue howers: see how she ginnes
Critical Apparatus92To blow into lifes flower againe.
1. Gent. The Heauens,
Critical Apparatus93Through you, encrease our wonder, and sets vp
Critical Apparatus94Your fame for euer.
Cer. She is aliue, behold
95Her ey-lids cases to those heauenly iewels
96Which Pericles hath lost,
97Begin to part their fringes of bright gold,
Critical Apparatus98The Diamonds of a most praysed water
99Doth appeare, to make the world twise rich, liue,
100And make vs weepe. To heare your fate, faire creature,
Critical Apparatus101Rare as you seeme to bee.Shee moues.
Thai. O deare Diana,
E4v Link 102Where am I? Where's my Lord? What world is this?Critical Apparatus103
2. Gent. Is not this strange?
1. Gent. Most rare.
Ceri. Hush ([gentle] neighbours)
104Lend me your hands, to the next Chamber beare her:
105Get linnen: now this matter must be lookt to
106For her relapse is mortall: come, come;
107And Escelapius guide vs.They carry her away. Exeunt omnes.
