Card sort and answers Act 2 Scene 1

  1. 1. Antonio Persuades Sebastian to Make Himself King He tells Sebastian that here is his opportunity Th‟occasion speaks thee He imagines Sebastian as king My strong imagination sees a crown dropping upon thy head He flatters Sebastian Noble Sebastian He tells him he is not fulfilling his potential Thou let‟st thy fortune sleep – die rather, wink‟st whiles thou art waking Antonio will teach Sebastian how to act I‟ll teach you how to flow It is impossible that Ferdinand is not drowned „Tis as impossible that he‟s undrown‟d as he that sleeps here swims Ferdinand being dead is a great opportunity Out of that “no hope” what great hope you have Claribel lives too far away from Naples to be a problem She that dwells ten leagues beyond man‟s life There is virtually no difference between being asleep and dead Why, they were no worse than now they are There are other men who could rule Naples as well as the sleeping Alonso does There be that can rule Naples as well as he that sleeps See how good I look in my new role as Duke Look how well my garments sit upon me If my conscience were a blister, I would wear soft shoes so I didn‟t notice it If „twere a kibe „twould put me to my slipper I don‟t suffer from a guilty conscience I feel not this deity in my bosom 20 consciences would be as insubstantial as candy floss Twenty consciences that stand „twixt me and Milan, candied be they and melt, ere they molest I can put Alonso to sleep forever with my sword With this obedient steel, three inches of it, can lay to bed forever You can put Gonzalo to eternal sleep To the perpetual wink for aye might put this ancient morsel, this Sir Prudence Draw your sword with me – as I kill Alonso, you kill Gonzalo Draw together, and when I rear my hand, do you the like, to fall upon Gonzalo
