Antony and Cleopatra
Act III, Scene 5
Athens. Another room in Antony’s house.
- Enter Enobarbus and Eros, meeting.
- How now, friend Eros?
- There’s strange news come, sir.
- What, man?
- Caesar and Lepidus have made wars upon Pompey.
- This is old, what is the success?
Eros6 - 11
- Caesar, having made use of him in the wars ’gainst Pompey,
- presently denied him rivality, would not let him partake in
- the glory of the action, and not resting here, accuses him
- of letters he had formerly wrote to Pompey; upon his own
- appeal, seizes him. So the poor third is up, till death
- enlarge his confine.
Domitius Enobarbus12 - 14
- Then, world, thou hast a pair of chaps—no more,
- And throw between them all the food thou hast,
- They’ll grind th’ one the other. Where’s Antony?
Eros15 - 18
- He’s walking in the garden—thus, and spurns
- The rush that lies before him; cries, “Fool Lepidus!”
- And threats the throat of that his officer
- That murd’red Pompey.
- Our great navy’s rigg’d.
Eros20 - 22
- For Italy and Caesar. More, Domitius,
- My lord desires you presently; my news
- I might have told hereafter.
Domitius Enobarbus23 - 24
- ’Twill be naught,
- But let it be. Bring me to Antony.
- Come, sir.
