1909. Excerpt: ... Scene III The same. A hall of state: a banquet
prepared. Enter Simonides, Thaisa, Lords, Knights, and Attendants.
Sim. Knights, To say you 're welcome were superfluous. To place
upon the volume of your deeds, As in a title-page, your worth in
arms, Were more than you expect, or more than's fit, Since every
worth in show commends itself. Prepare for mirth, for mirth becomes
a feast: You are princes and my guests. Thai. But you, my knight
and guest; To whom this wreath of victory I give, 10 And crown you
king of this day's happiness. 57. "by the inward man"; that is,
that makes us scan the inward man by the outward habit. Such
inversions are not uncommon in old writers.--H. N. H. Per. "Tis
more by fortune, lady, than my merit. Sim. Call it by what you
will, the day is yours; And here, I hope, is none that envies it.
In framing an artist, art hath thus decreed, To make some good, but
others to exceed; And you are her labor'd scholar. Come, queen o'
the feast, --For, daughter, so you are, --here take your place:
Marshal the rest as they deserve their grace. Knights. We are
honor'd much by good Simonides. "20 Sim. Your presence glads our
days: honor we love; For who hates honor hates the gods above.
Marshal, Sir, yonder is your place. Per. Some other is more fit.
First Knight. Contend not, sir; for we are gentlemen That neither
in our hearts nor outward eyes Envy the great nor do the low
despise. Per. You are right courteous knights. Sim. Sit, sir, sit.
Aside By Jove, I wonder, that is king of thoughts, These cates
resist me, he not thought upon. Thai. Aside By Juno, that is queen
of marriage, All viands that I eat do seem unsavory, 31 19.
"Marshal"; Malone's emendation; Qq., F. 3, "Martiall"; F. 4,
"Martial."--I. G. 29. "resist"; Collier conj. "distaste."-- . G...
