Monologues for Men

CAL.

Why, as I told thee, ’tis a custom with him

I’ th’ afternoon to sleep. There thou mayst brain him,

Having first seiz’d his books; or with a log

Batter his skull, or paunch him with a stake,

Or cut his wezand with thy knife. Remember

First to possess his books; for without them

He’s but a sot, as I am; nor hath not

One spirit to command: they all do hate him

As rootedly as I. Burn but his books.

He has brave utensils (for so he calls them)

Which when he has a house, he’ll deck withal.

And that most deeply to consider is

The beauty of his daughter. He himself

Calls her a nonpareil. I never saw a woman

But only Sycorax my dam and she;

But she as far surpasseth Sycorax

As great’st does least.

Within this half hour will he be asleep.

Wilt thou destroy him then?
