Edward II Act V Scene I

Continue ever, thou celestial sun;

Let never silent night possess this clime;

Stand still, you watches of the element;

And times and seasons, rest you at a stay,

That Edward may be still fair England’s king.

64-68

Dr Faustus Act V, Scene ii (A Text)

Stand still, you ever-moving spheres of heaven,

That time may cease and midnight never come!

60-61

slide6

Act II Scene II

My swelling heart for very anger breaks.

How have I been baited by these peers,

And dare not be revenged, for their power is great!

Yet shall the crowing of the cockrels

Affright a lion? Edward, unfold thy paws,

And let their lives’ blood slake thy fury’s hunger.

If I be cruel and grow tyrannous,

Now let them thank themselves, and rue too late

(199-206)

slide7

Poor Gaveston, that hast no friend but me.

Do what they can, we’ll live in Tynemouth here,

And so I walk with him about the walls,

What care I though the earls begirt us round?

(II.ii. 219-222)

Make several kingdoms of this monarchy

And share it equally amongst you all,

So I may have some nook or corner left

To frolic with my dearest Gaveston.

(I.iv. 70-73)

slide9

Holinshed on James VI of Scotland

James has let himself be “obscured by the craft & subtiltie of some lewd and wicked persons of no desert or woorthinesse, and for the most part of base lineage, not born to one foot breadth of land”

Esme Stuart, First Duke of Lennox

slide10

Uncle, his wanton humour grieves not me

But this I scorn, that one so basely born

Should by his sovereign’s favour grow so pert

And riot it with the treasure of the realm.

(Act I. Scene iv, ll. 402-405)
