Act 5, scene 4
Brutus’s forces are defeated in the second battle. Lucilius calls attention to himself and away from Brutus by announcing himself to be Brutus. Lucilius is captured, but Antony spares him.Alarum. Enter Brutus, Messala, Cato, Lucilius, and
2538 Yet, countrymen, O, yet hold up your heads!
⌜Brutus, Messala, and Flavius exit.⌝
2539 What bastard doth not? Who will go with me?
2540 I will proclaim my name about the field.
2541 I am the son of Marcus Cato, ho!
2542 5 A foe to tyrants and my country’s friend.
2543 I am the son of Marcus Cato, ho!
Enter Soldiers and fight.
2544 And I am Brutus, Marcus Brutus, I!
2545 Brutus, my country’s friend! Know me for Brutus.
⌜Cato is killed.⌝
2546 O young and noble Cato, art thou down?
p. 2012547 10 Why, now thou diest as bravely as Titinius
2548 And mayst be honored, being Cato’s son.
⌜FIRST⌝ SOLDIER, ⌜seizing Lucilius⌝
2549 Yield, or thou diest.
LUCILIUS 2550 Only I yield to die.
2551 There is so much that thou wilt kill me straight.
2552 15 Kill Brutus and be honored in his death.
2553 We must not. A noble prisoner!
2554 Room, ho! Tell Antony Brutus is ta’en.
2555 I’ll tell ⌜the⌝ news. Here comes the General.—
2556 Brutus is ta’en, Brutus is ta’en, my lord.
ANTONY 2557 20Where is he?
2558 Safe, Antony, Brutus is safe enough.
2559 I dare assure thee that no enemy
2560 Shall ever take alive the noble Brutus.
2561 The gods defend him from so great a shame!
2562 25 When you do find him, or alive or dead,
2563 He will be found like Brutus, like himself.
2564 This is not Brutus, friend, but I assure you,
2565 A prize no less in worth. Keep this man safe.
2566 Give him all kindness. I had rather have
2567 30 Such men my friends than enemies. Go on,
2568 And see whe’er Brutus be alive or dead,
2569 And bring us word unto Octavius’ tent
2570 How everything is chanced.
They exit ⌜in different directions.⌝
