    A monologue from the play by Christopher Marlowe

    NOTE: This monologue is reprinted from Masterpieces of the English Drama. Ed. William Lyon Phelps. New York: American Book Company, 1912.

    TAMBURLAINE: Now clear the triple region of the air,
    And let the Majesty of Heaven behold
    Their scourge and terror tread on emperors.
    Smile, stars that reign’d at my nativity,
    And dim the brightness of your neighbour lamps,
    Disdain to borrow light of Cynthia!
    For I, chiefest lamp of all the earth,
    First rising in the east with mild aspect,
    But fixed now in the meridian line,
    Will send up fire to your turning spheres,
    And cause the sun to borrow light of you.
    My sword struck fire from his coat of steel,
    Even in Bithynia, when I took his Turk;
    As when a fiery exhalation,
    Wrapt in the bowels, of a freezing cloud,
    Fighting for passage, make[s] the welkin crack,
    And casts a flash of lightning to the earth:
    But, ere I march to wealthy Persia,
    Or leave Damascus and th’ Egyptian fields,
    As was the fame of Cylmene’s brain-sick son
    That almost brent the axle-tree of heaven,
    So shall our swords, our lances, and our shot
    Fill all the air with fiery meteors;
    Then, when the sky shall wax as red as blood,
    It shall be said I made it red myself,
    To make me think of naught but blood and war.
