By Friedrich Schiller; Henry G. Bohn | Go to book overview

to me for ever on thy account, and yet in one breath hast thou denied her thrice. Go, wretch--go; (he gives him a blow with the pistol, and thrusts him out of the chamber;) powder were thrown away on such a miscreant. [Exit MARSHAL.


SCENE, IV.

FERD. (after a long silence, during which his countenance declares him to be agitated by some dreadful idea). For ever lost? Yes, false Unfortunate, both are lost!--Ay, by the Almighty God! if I am lost, thou art so too.--Judge of the world, ask her not from me! She is mine.--For her sake I renounced the whole world--abandoned all thy glorious creation.--Leave me the maid, great Judge of the world!-- Millions of souls pour out their plaints to thee--turn on them thine eye of compassion, but leave me, Almighty Judge --leave me to myself--(Clasping his hands in agony.) Can the bountiful, the munificent Creator be covetous of one miserable soul, and that soul the worst in his creation? The maiden is mine!--Once I was her god, but now I am her devil!

(Fixes his eyes with terrible expression.)

An eternity passed with her upon the rack of everlasting perdition!--Her melting eye-balls riveted on mine!--Our blazing locks entwined together!--Our shrieks of agony dissolving into one!--And then to renew to her my vows of love, and chant unceasingly her broken oaths!--God! God! The union is dreadful--and eternal! (As he is about to rush of, the PRESIDENT meets hint.)


SCENE V.

FERDINAND, the PRESIDENT.

FERD. (starting back). Ha! My father!

PRES. I am glad to meet with you, Ferdinand! I come to bring you some pleasant news--something that will certainly surprise you, my dear son.--Shall we be seated?

FERD. (after gazing upon him for some time with a vacant stare). My father! (Going to him with emotion, and grasping his hand.) My father! (Kissing it, and falling as his feet.)--Oh, father!
