  • A segregation of the Turkish fleet:
    For do but stand upon the foaming shore,...
  • A segregation of the Turkish fleet:
    For do but stand upon the foaming shore,
    The chidden billow seems to pelt the clouds;
    The wind-shaked surge, with high and monstrous mane,
    seems to cast water on the burning bear,
    And quench the guards of the ever-fixed pole:
    I never did like molestation view
    On the enchafed flood.
  • Montano. Methinks the wind hath spoke aloud at land;
    A fuller blast ne'er shook our battlements:
    If it hath ruffian'd so upon the sea,
    What ribs of oak, when mountains melt on them,
    Can hold the mortise? What shall we hear of this?

    Second Gentleman. A segregation of the Turkish fleet:
    For do but stand upon the foaming shore,
    The chidden billow seems to pelt the clouds;
    The wind-shaked surge, with high and monstrous mane,
    seems to cast water on the burning bear,
    And quench the guards of the ever-fixed pole:
    I never did like molestation view
    On the enchafed flood.

  • 'Tis one Iago, ancient to the general.
  • 'Tis one Iago, ancient to the general.
  • Cassio. Most fortunately: he hath achieved a maid
    That paragons description and wild fame;
    One that excels the quirks of blazoning pens,
    And in the essential vesture of creation
    Does tire the ingener.
    [Re-enter second Gentleman]
    How now! who has put in?

    Second Gentleman. 'Tis one Iago, ancient to the general.

  • They give their greeting to the citadel;
    This likewise is a friend.
  • They give their greeting to the citadel;
    This likewise is a friend.
  • Cassio. The great contention of the sea and skies
    Parted our fellowship--But, hark! a sail.

    Second Gentleman. They give their greeting to the citadel;
    This likewise is a friend.
