Isn't it a parallel to Coriolanus--i.e., "conqueror of the
.............."?

No.  The teacher can go here: http://tech-two.mit.edu/Shakespeare/ For
the texts of the complete works and copy and paste like I've done here:

So shaken as we are, so wan with care,
Find we a time for frighted peace to pant,
And breathe short-winded accents of new broils
To be commenced in strands afar remote.

Can you guess which play begins with that?

A bit easier than re-typing is to a download a text of the play you
want, then cut and paste into new documents. There are several
non-copyright versions available, including (for older students)
un-edited replicas of the quarto / folio texts. Any of the major
Shakespeare web-sites will lead you to these.

Good luck (and write me if you need more details)
