The Comedy of Errors: ‘Are You A God?’ | Shakespeare’s Globe | Rent or Buy on Globe Player


Are you a god? would you create me new? Transform me then, and to your power I’ll yield. But if that I am I, then well I know Your weeping sister is no wife of mine, Nor to her bed no homage do I owe Far more, far more to you do I decline. O, train me not, sweet mermaid, with thy note, To drown me in thy sister’s flood of tears: Sing, siren, for thyself and I will dote: Spread o’er the silver waves thy golden hairs, And as a bed I’ll take them and there lie, And in that glorious supposition think He gains by death that hath such means to die: Let Love, being light, be drowned if she sink! What, are you mad, that you do reason so? Not mad, but mated; how, I do not know. It is a fault that springeth from your eye. For gazing on your beams, fair sun, being by. Gaze where you should, and that will clear your sight. As good to wink, sweet love, as look on night. Why call you me love? Call my sister so. Thy sister’s sister. That’s my sister. No; It is thyself, mine own self’s better part, Mine eye’s clear eye, my dear heart’s dearer heart, My food, my fortune and my sweet hope’s aim, My sole earth’s heaven and my heaven’s claim.
