Antonio's Explanation for Following Sebastian (3.3.4- 13)

Folio (1623)


I could not stay behinde you; my desire
(More sharpe than filed steele) did spurre me forth,
But not all love to see you (though so much
As might have drawne one to a longer voyage)
But jealousie, what might befall your rravell,
Being skillesse in these parts: which to a stranger,
Unguided, and unfriended, often prove
Rough, and unhospitable. My willing love,
The rather by these arguments of feare
Set forth in your pursuite.

Kemble (1815)


I could not stay behind you; my desire,
More sharp than filed steel, did spur me forth;


I fear'd besides, what might befall your travel,
Being skilless in these parts; which to a stranger,
Unguided, and unfriended, often prove
Rough and unhospitable: My willing love,
The rather by these arguments of doubt,
Set forth in your pursuit.
