LORD POLONIUS

Give him this money and these notesReynaldo

REYNALDO

LORD POLONIUS

You shall do marvellous wiselygood Reynaldo

Before you visit himto make inquire

Of his behavior

REYNALDO

My lord I did intend it

LORD POLONIUS

Marrywell saidvery well saidLook yousir

Inquire me first what Danskersare in Paris

And howand whowhat meansand where they keep

What companyat what expenseand finding

By this encompassmentand drift of question

That they do know my soncome you more nearer

Than your particular demands will touch it

Take youas it weresome distant knowledge of him

As thus>I know his father and his friends

And in part him'do you mark thisReynaldo

REYNALDO

Ayvery wellmy lord

LORD POLONIUS

>And in part himbut>you may say >not well

Butif>t be he I mean he's very wild

Addicted so and so>and there put on him

What forgeriesyou pleasemarrynone so rank

As may dishonour himtake heed of that

Butsir such wanton wild and usual slips

As are companions noted and most known

To youth and liberty

REYNALDO

As gamingmy lord

LORD POLONIUS

Ayor drinking fencingswearingquarrelling

Drabbingyou may go so far

REYNALDO

My lord that would dishonour him

LORD POLONIUS

>Faith noas you may seasonit in the charge

You must not put another scandalon him

That he is open to incontinency

That's not my meaningbut breathe his faults so quaintly

That they may seem the taints of liberty

The flashand outbreak of a fierymind

A savagenessin unreclaimedblood

Of general assault

REYNALDO

Butmy good lord,——

LORD POLONIUS

Whereforeshould you do this

REYNALDO

Ay my lord

I would know that

LORD POLONIUS

Marry here's my drift

And I believe it is a fetchof wit

You laying these slight sullieson my son

As>twere a thing a little soil'd i>the workingMark you

Your party in converse him you would sound

Having ever seen in the prenominatecrimes

The youth you breathe of guiltybe assured

He closes with you in this consequence

>Good sir>or soor >friend>or >gentleman>

According to the phrase or the addition

Of man and country

REYNALDO

Very goodmy lord

LORD POLONIUS

And thensirdoes he this——he does——what was I

about to say By the massI was about to say

someethingwhere did I leave

REYNALDO

At>closes in the consequence>at >friend or so>ana >gentleman>

LORD POLONIUS

At>closes in the consequence>aymarry

He closes thus>I know the gentleman

I saw him yesterdayor t>otherday

Or thenor thenwith suchor suchandas you say

There was a>gamingthere o>ertookin'srouse

There falling out at tennis>or perchance

>I saw him enter such a house of sale>

Videliceta brothelor so forth

See you now

Your bait of falsehood takes this carp of truth

And thus do we of wisdom and of reach

With windlasses and with assays of bias

By indirections find directions out

So by my former lecture and advice

Shall you my sonYou have mehave you not

REYNALDO

My lordI have

LORD POLONIUS

God be wi> youfare you well

REYNALDO

Good my lord

LORD POLONIUS

Observe his inclination in yourself

REYNALDO

I shallmy lord

LORD POLONIUS

And let him ply his music

REYNALDO

Wellmy lord

LORD POLONIUS

Farewell

Exit REYNALDO

Enter OPHELIA

How nowOpheliawhat's the matter

OPHELIA

Omy lordmy lordI have been so affrighted

LORD POLONIUS

With whati>the name of God

OPHELIA

My lordas I was sewing in my closet

Lord Hamletwith his doublet all unbraced

No hat upon his headhis stockings foul'd

Ungarter'dand downgyvedto his ancle

Paleas his shirthis knees knocking each other

And with a look so piteousin purport

As if he had been loosedout of hell

To speak of horrors,——he comes before me

LORD POLONIUS

Mad for thylove

OPHELIA

My lordI do not know

But trulyI do fear it

LORD POLONIUS

What said he

OPHELIA

He took me by the wrist and held me hard

Then goes he to the length of all his arm

Andwith his other hand thus o>er his brow

He falls to such perusal of my face

As he would draw itLong stay'd he so

At lasta little shaking of mine arm

And thrice his head thus waving up and down

He raised a sigh so piteous and profound

As it did seem to shatter all his bulk

And end his beingthat donehe lets me go

Andwith his head over his shoulder turn'd

He seem'd to find his way without his eyes

For out o'doors he went without their helps

Andto the lastbended their light on me

LORD POLONIUS

Comego with meI will go seek the king

This is the very ecstasy of love

Whose violent property fordoes itself

And leads the will to desperate undertakings

As oft as any passion under heaven

That does afflict our naturesI am sorry

Whathave you given him any hard words of late

OPHELIA

Nomy good lordbutas you did command

I did repel his fetters and denied

His access to me

LORD POLONIUS

That hath made him mad

I am sorry that with better heed and judgment

I had not quoted himI fear'd he did but trifle

And meant to wreck theebutbeshrew my jealousy

By heavenit is as proper to our age

To cast beyond ourselves in our opinions

As it is common for the younger sort

To lack discretionComego we to the king

This must be knownwhichbeing kept closemightmove

More grief to hide than hate to utter love

[Exeurt]
