Another part of the platform

 

[Enter GHOST and HAMLET]

HAMLET

Where wilt thou lead me speakI>ll go no furtherGhost

Mark me

HAMLET

I will

Ghost

My hour is almost come

When I to sulphurousand tormenting flames

Must render up myself

HAMLET

Alaspoor ghost

Ghost

Pity me notbut lend thy serious hearing

To what I shall unfold

HAMLET

SpeakI am bound to hear

Ghost

So artathou to revengewhen thou shalt hear

HAMLET

What

Ghost

I am thy father's spirit

Doom'dfor a certain term to walk the night

And for the day confined to fastin fires

Till the foul crimes done in my days of nature

Are burnt and purgedawayBut that I am forbid

To tell the secrets of my prisonhouse

I could a tale unfold whose lightest word

Would harrow up thy soulfreeze thy young blood

Make thy two eyeslike starsstart from their spheres

Thy knottedand combined locksto part

And each particular hair to stand on end

Like quillsupon the fretfulporpentine

But this eternalblazon must not be

To ears o flesh and bloodListlistOlist

If thou didst ever thy dear father love——

HAMLET

O God

Ghost

Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder

HAMLET

Murder

Ghost

Murder most foul as in the best it is

But this most foulstrange and unnatural

HAMLET

Haste me to know>t that Iwith wings as swift

As meditation or the thoughts of love

May sweep to my revenge

Ghost

I find thee apt

And duller shouldstthou be than the fat weed

That roots itself in ease on Lethe wharf

Wouldst thou not stirin thisNowHamlet hear

>Tis given out thatsleeping in my orchard

A serpentstung meso the whole ear of Denmark

Is by a forged process of my death

Rankly abusedbut knowthou noble youth

The serpent that did sting thy father's life

Now wears his crown

HAMLET

O my propheticsoul My uncle

Ghost

Aythat incestuousthat adulterate beast

With witchcraftof his witwith traitorousgifts,——

O wickedwit and gifts that have the power

So to seduce!——won to his shameful lust

The will of my most seemingvirtuousqueen

O Hamletwhat a fallingoff was there

From mewhose love was of that dignity

That it went hand in hand even with the vow

I made to her in marriageand to decline

Upon a wretchwhose natural gifts were poor

To those of mine

But virtue as it never will be moved

Though lewdness court it in a shape of heaven

So lustthough to a radiantangel link'd

Will sate itself in a celestial bed

And prey on garbage

Butsoftmethinks I scentthe morning air

Brief let me beSleeping within my orchard

My custom always of the afternoon

Upou my secure hour thy uncle stole

With juice of cursed hebenon in a vial

And in the porches of my ears did pour

The leperousdistilmentwhose effect

Holds such an enmitywith blood of man

That swiftas quicksilverit coursesthrough

The natural gates and alleysof the body

And with a sudden vigour doth posset

And curdlike eager droppings into milk

The thin and wholesome bloodso did it mine

And a most instant tetter bark'd about

Most lazarlikewith vileand loathsomecrust

All my smooth body

Thus was Isleeping by a brother's hand

Of lifeof crownof queenat once dispatch'd

Cut off even in the blossoms of my sin

Unhousel'ddisappointedunanel'd

No reckoningmadebut sent to my account

With all my imperfections on my head

OhorribleOhorriblemost horrible

If thou hast nature in theebear it not

Let not the royal bed of Denmark be

A couch for luxury and damned incest

Buthowsoever thou pursuestthis act

Taint not thy mind nor let thy soul contrive

Against thy mother aught leave her to heaven

And to those thorns that in her bosomlodge

To prickand stingherFare thee well at once

The glowwormshows the matinto be near

And>gins to pale his uneffectual fire

AdieuadieuHamletremember me

[Exit]

HAMLET

O all you hostof heavenO earth what else

And shall I couple hellOfie Holdholdmy heart

And youmy sinews grow not instant old

But bear me stiffly upRemember thee

Aythou poor ghost while memory holds a seat

In this distracted globeRemember thee

Yeafrom the table of my memory

I>ll wipe away all trivial fondrecords

All sawsof booksall forms all pressures past

That youth and observation copied there

And thy commandmentall alone shall live

Within the book and volumeof my brain

Unmix'd with baser matteryesby heaven

O most perniciouswoman

O villainvillainsmilingdamned villain

My tables,——meet it is I set it down

That one may smile and smile and be a villain

At least I>m sure it may be so in Denmark
