  • He is not with himself; let us withdraw.
  • He is not with himself; let us withdraw.
  • Titus Andronicus. Marcus, even thou hast struck upon my crest,
    And, with these boys, mine honour thou hast wounded:
    My foes I do repute you every one;
    So, trouble me no more, but get you gone.

    Martius. He is not with himself; let us withdraw.

  • And mine, I promise you; were't not for shame,
    Well could I leave our sport...
  • And mine, I promise you; were't not for shame,
    Well could I leave our sport to sleep awhile.
  • Quintus. My sight is very dull, whate'er it bodes.

    Martius. And mine, I promise you; were't not for shame,
    Well could I leave our sport to sleep awhile.

  • O brother, with the dismall'st object hurt
    That ever eye with sight made heart lament!
  • Quintus. What art thou fall'n? What subtle hole is this,
    Whose mouth is cover'd with rude-growing briers,
    Upon whose leaves are drops of new-shed blood
    As fresh as morning dew distill'd on flowers?
    A very fatal place it seems to me.
    Speak, brother, hast thou hurt thee with the fall?

    Martius. O brother, with the dismall'st object hurt
    That ever eye with sight made heart lament!

  • Why dost not comfort me, and help me out
    From this unhallowed and blood-stai...
  • Why dost not comfort me, and help me out
    From this unhallowed and blood-stained hole?
  • Aaron. [Aside] Now will I fetch the king to find them here,
    That he thereby may give a likely guess
    How these were they that made away his brother.

    Martius. Why dost not comfort me, and help me out
    From this unhallowed and blood-stained hole?

5 II / 3
  • To prove thou hast a true-divining heart,
    Aaron and thou look down into this...
  • To prove thou hast a true-divining heart,
    Aaron and thou look down into this den,
    And see a fearful sight of blood and death.
  • Quintus. I am surprised with an uncouth fear;
    A chilling sweat o'er-runs my trembling joints:
    My heart suspects more than mine eye can see.

    Martius. To prove thou hast a true-divining heart,
    Aaron and thou look down into this den,
    And see a fearful sight of blood and death.

    All on a heap, like to a slaughter'd lamb...
  • Lord Bassianus lies embrewed here,
    All on a heap, like to a slaughter'd lamb,
    In this detested, dark, blood-drinking pit.
  • Quintus. Aaron is gone; and my compassionate heart
    Will not permit mine eyes once to behold
    The thing whereat it trembles by surmise;
    O, tell me how it is; for ne'er till now
    Was I a child to fear I know not what.

    Martius. Lord Bassianus lies embrewed here,
    All on a heap, like to a slaughter'd lamb,
    In this detested, dark, blood-drinking pit.

  • Upon his bloody finger he doth wear
    A precious ring, that lightens all the hole,
    Which, like a taper in some monument,
    Doth shine upon the dead man's earthy cheeks,
    And shows the ragged entrails of the pit:
    So pale did shine the moon on Pyramus
    When he by night lay bathed in maiden blood.
    O brother, help me with thy fainting hand--
    If fear hath made thee faint, as me it hath--
    Out of this fell devouring receptacle,
    As hateful as Cocytus' misty mouth.
  • Quintus. If it be dark, how dost thou know 'tis he?

    Martius. Upon his bloody finger he doth wear
    A precious ring, that lightens all the hole,
    Which, like a taper in some monument,
    Doth shine upon the dead man's earthy cheeks,
    And shows the ragged entrails of the pit:
    So pale did shine the moon on Pyramus
    When he by night lay bathed in maiden blood.
    O brother, help me with thy fainting hand--
    If fear hath made thee faint, as me it hath--
    Out of this fell devouring receptacle,
    As hateful as Cocytus' misty mouth.

  • Nor I no strength to climb without thy help.
  • Nor I no strength to climb without thy help.
  • Quintus. Reach me thy hand, that I may help thee out;
    Or, wanting strength to do thee so much good,
    I may be pluck'd into the swallowing womb
    Of this deep pit, poor Bassianus' grave.
    I have no strength to pluck thee to the brink.

    Martius. Nor I no strength to climb without thy help.

  • The unhappy son of old Andronicus:
    Brought hither in a most unlucky hour,
  • The unhappy son of old Andronicus:
    Brought hither in a most unlucky hour,
    To find thy brother Bassianus dead.
  • Saturninus. Along with me: I'll see what hole is here,
    And what he is that now is leap'd into it.
    Say who art thou that lately didst descend
    Into this gaping hollow of the earth?

    Martius. The unhappy son of old Andronicus:
    Brought hither in a most unlucky hour,
    To find thy brother Bassianus dead.

    But, out, alas! here have we found...
  • We know not where you left him all alive;
    But, out, alas! here have we found him dead.
    [Re-enter TAMORA, with Attendants; TITUS]
    ANDRONICUS, and Lucius]
  • Saturninus. My brother dead! I know thou dost but jest:
    He and his lady both are at the lodge
    Upon the north side of this pleasant chase;
    'Tis not an hour since I left him there.

    Martius. We know not where you left him all alive;
    But, out, alas! here have we found him dead.
    [Re-enter TAMORA, with Attendants; TITUS]
    ANDRONICUS, and Lucius]
