More honored in the breach than the observance. Other countries criticize us for our loud partying. This heavy-headed revel east and west 20 Makes us traduced and taxed of other nations.

And indeed it takes And our drunkenness does detract from our From our achievements, though performed at height, achievements, as great as they are, and lessens The pith and marrow of our attribute.

The dram of evil Doth all the noble substance of a doubt 40 To his own scandal. Look, sirhere it comes! Oh angels, protect us! Bring with thee airs from heaven or blasts from hell, heavenly breezes or blasts of hell fire, whether 45 Be thy intents wicked or charitable, your intentions are good or evil, you look so Thou comest in such a questionable shape strange I want to talk to you.

Ill call you Hamlet That I will speak to thee. Answer King, Father, royal Dane. O, answer me! Dont drive me crazy with curiosity, but tell Let me not burst in ignorance, but tell me why your church-buried bones have burst out 50 Why thy canonized bones, hearsed in death, of their coffin, and why your tomb, Have burst their cerements; why the sepulcher,. Act 1, Scene 4, Page 3 Wherein we saw thee quietly interred, where we quietly buried you, has opened up its Hath oped his ponderous and marble jaws heavy marble jaws to spit you out again.

What To cast thee up again. What may this mean, could it mean that you have put on your armor 55 That thou, dead corse, again in complete steel again, you corpse, and have come back to look at Revisits thus the glimpses of the moon, the moon, making the night terrifying and stirring Making night hideous and we fools of nature, us humans with supernatural fears?

What So horridly to shake our disposition do you want from us? What should we do? With thoughts beyond the reaches of our souls? To you alone. But dont go. Definitely not. Then I will follow it. Its not going to speak, so Ill follow it. Dont do it, sir. Why, whats the danger? I dont value my life one I do not set my life in a pins fee, bit. And as for my soul, how can the ghost And for my soulwhat can it do to that, endanger that, since its as immortal as the ghost 70 Being a thing immortal as itself?

Look, its waving me over again. Ill follow it. It waves me forth again. Or Or to the dreadful summit of the cliff to the terrifying cliff that overhangs the water, That beetles o'er his base into the sea,.

Think of it.

Without more motive, into every brain and hear it roar far below. Its still waving to me. Go ahead, Ill follow. Ill follow thee. Youre not going, sir. Let go of me. You shall not go. Calm down. Youre not going anywhere. Every nerve in my body is And makes each petty artery in this body now as tough as steel.

The ghost is still waving As hardy as the Nemean lions nerve.

Let me go, gentlemen. Unhand me, gentlemen. I say, get away! Go ahead, Ill I say, away! His imagination is making him crazy. Lets follow them. Its not right to obey his orders to let him go alone.

To what issue will this come? Go ahead and follow him. But what does all this mean, where will it all end? It means that something is rotten in the state of Denmark. If thats true, we should let God take care of it. No, lets follow him. Speak, Ill go no further. Where are you taking me? Im not going any farther.

Listen to me. I will. Must render up myself. Ah, poor ghost! Just listen carefully to what I have To what I shall unfold. I am bound to hear. Im ready to hear you.

Hamlet: the Original Play Alongside a Modern English Translation

List, list, O, list! Oh God! Take revenge for his horrible murder, that crime against nature. His most horrible murder. Murders always But this most foul, strange and unnatural. May sweep to my revenge. Youd have to be as lazy And duller shouldst thou be than the fat weed as a weed on the shores of Lethe not to get riled That roots itself in ease on Lethe wharf, up here. Now listen, Hamlet. Everyone was told Wouldst thou not stir in this.

Now, Hamlet, hear. But in fact, thats a lie A serpent stung me. So the whole ear of Denmark thats fooled everyone in Denmark. You should Is by a forgd process of my death know, my noble son, the real snake that stung Rankly abused.

But know, thou noble youth, your father is now wearing his crown. The serpent that did sting thy fathers life 40 Now wears his crown. My uncle? I knew it! With his With witchcraft of his wit, with traitorous gifts clever words and fancy gifts, he seduced my O wicked wit and gifts, that have the power seemingly virtuous queen, persuading her to give 45 So to seduce! They were evil words and gifts to The will of my most seeming-virtuous queen.

Oh, Hamlet, how far she fell! O Hamlet, what a falling off was there! She went from me, who loved her with the dignity From me, whose love was of that dignity and devotion that suits a legitimate marriage, to a That it went hand in hand even with the vow wretch whose natural gifts were poor compared 50 I made to her in marriage, and to decline to mine.

But just as you cant corrupt a truly Upon a wretch whose natural gifts were poor virtuous person no matter how you try, the To those of mine. But hang on, I think I smell the 55 So lust, though to a radiant angel linked, morning air. So let me be brief here. Your uncle Will sate itself in a celestial bed snuck up to me while I was sleeping in the And prey on garbage.

Methinks I scent the morning air.

Sleeping within my orchard, earthat poison that moves like quicksilver 60 My custom always of the afternoon, through the veins and curdles the blood, which is Upon my secure hour thy uncle stole just what it did to me.

I broke out in a scaly rash With juice of cursed hebenon in a vial, that covered my smooth body with a revolting And in the porches of my ears did pour crust.

And thats how my brother robbed me of The leperous distilment, whose effect my life, my crown, and my queen all at once. He 65 Holds such an enmity with blood of man cut me off in the middle of a sinful life. That swift as quicksilver it courses through The natural gates and alleys of the body And with a sudden vigor doth posset And curd, like eager droppings into milk, 70 The thin and wholesome blood.

So did it mine. And a most instant tetter barked about, Most lazar-like, with vile and loathsome crust All my smooth body. Act 1, Scene 5, Page 4 Unhouseled, disappointed, unaneled. I had no chance to repent my sins or receive last No reckoning made, but sent to my account rites. Oh, its horrible, horrible, so horrible! If you With all my imperfections on my head.

Dont let the Danish 80 Oh, horrible, oh, horrible, most horrible! But however you If thou hast nature in thee, bear it not. Leave her to God A couch for luxury and damnd incest. Now, good-bye.

Oh, fie! Hold, hold, my heart, Shall I include hell as well? Keep And you, my sinews, grow not instant old, beating, my heart, and muscles, dont grow old 95 But bear me stiffly up.

Yea, from the table of my memory Yes, Ill wipe my mind clean of all trivial facts and Ill wipe away all trivial fond records, memories and preserve only your commandment All saws of books, all forms, all pressures past there.

Now its time to O villain, villain, smiling, damnd villain! My tables!

Give him this money and these letters, Reynaldo. I will, sir. Thats what I thought too, sir. Look you, sir, Excellent, very good. Ask around and find out Inquire me first what Danskers are in Paris, what Danish people are in Pariswho they are, And how, and who, what means, and where they where they live and how much money they have, keep who their friends are.

By this encompassment and drift of question know my son, youll find out much more than if That they do know my son, come you more nearer you asked specific questions about him.

Just tell Than your particular demands will touch it. I know his father and his friends, him, or whatever. Do you get what Im saying, And, in part, him. Do you mark this, Reynaldo? Yes, very well, sir. You should say, I sort of know him, but not well. But, if t be he I mean, hes very wild. Is it the same Laertes whos a wild party animal? Addicted so and so. And there put on him Isnt he the one whos always, and so on.

Then 20 What forgeries you please. Marry, none so rank just make up whatever you wantof course, As may dishonor him.

Take heed of that. I mean But, sir, such wanton, wild, and usual slips make up any stories that. Act 2, Scene 1, Page 2 As are companions noted and most known sound like your average young guy, the kind of To youth and liberty. Like gambling, sir? But that would ruin his reputation! Oh no, not if you say it right. I dont want you to You must not put another scandal on him say hes a sex fiend, thats not what I mean.

Just 30 That he is open to incontinency. But breathe his faults so like a free spirit whos gone a little too far. Why should you do this, you want to know? I would know that. Id like to know. Well, heres what Im thinking. Im quite proud of And I believe it is a fetch of wit myself for coming up with this.

As you talk with 40 You, laying these slight sullies on my son someone and hint about my sons faults and little As twere a thing a little soiled i' th' working sins, youll watch his reaction, and if hes ever Mark you, your party in converse, him you would seen Laertes do any of these things, it will only be sound, natural for him to agree with you, at which point Having ever seen in the prenominate crimes hell call you sir, or my good friend, depending 45 The youth you breathe of guilty, be assured on who the person is, where he comes from, and He closes with you in this consequence: Good sir or so, or Friend, or Gentleman, According to the phrase or the addition Of man and country.

By the mass, I was about to say say? Good God, I was about to say something. Where did I leave? What was I saying? Ay, marry. It will be natural for him to agree with you.

Ah, 55 He closes thus: I know the gentleman. If he agrees hell say something I saw him yesterdayor t' other day, like this: Yes, I know the gentleman youre Or then, or then, with such or suchand, as you referring to.

I just saw him yesterday, or the say, other day, or whenever it is, you know, and There was he gaming, there o'ertook ins rouse, there he was gambling, or there he was, totally 60 There falling out at tennis, or, perchance, wasted, or fighting with somebody about a tennis I saw him enter such a house of sale match, or going into a house of ill reputethat Videlicet a brothel, or so forth.

See you now, means a whorehouse, you knowor whatever. Your bait of falsehood takes this carp of truth. Make sure your little lie brings out the truth. Were And thus do we of wisdom and of reach, doing this wisely and intelligently, indirectly, 65 With windlasses and with assays of bias, finding out things by roundabout means.

Thats By indirections find directions out. So by my former lecture and advice You get my point, dont you? Shall you my son. You have me, have you not? Yes, I do, sir. Fare you well. God bless you. Have a safe trip. Thank you, sir. Dont forget to see what hes up to with your own eyes. Dont trust gossip.

And I hope hes studying his music like hes supposed to. Got it, sir. How now, Ophelia? Whats the matter? Ophelia, whats the matter? Oh, father, father, Ive just had such a scare! From what, in Gods name? He was pale as his Pale as his shirt; his knees knocking each other; undershirt, and his knees were knocking together. And with a look so piteous in purport He looked so out of sorts, as if hed just come As if he had been loosd out of hell back from hell.

He came up to me. To speak of horrorshe comes before me. Is he crazy with love for you? Im not sure, but Im afraid he might be. But truly, I do fear it. What did he say? He grabbed me by the wrist and held me hard, Then goes he to the length of all his arm, then backed away an arms length and just And, with his other hand thus o'er his brow, looked at me, staring at me like an artist about to 90 He falls to such perusal of my face paint my picture.

He stayed like that a long time. As he would draw it. Long stayed he so. Act 2, Scene 1, Page 5 At last, a little shaking of mine arm Finally, after shaking my arm a little, and jerking And thrice his head thus waving up and down, his head up and down three times, he sighed like He raised a sigh so piteous and profound it was his last breath.

After that he let me go. He 95 As it did seem to shatter all his bulk left the room with his head turned back on me, And end his being. That done, he lets me go, finding his way out without looking, since his And, with his head over his shoulder turned, eyes were on me the whole time. He seemed to find his way without his eyes, For out o' doors he went without their helps, And to the last bended their light on me.

I will go seek the king. Come with me. Ill go tell the king about this.


This This is the very ecstasy of love, is definitely love-craziness. Love is such a violent Whose violent property fordoes itself emotion that it makes people self-destruct, as And leads the will to desperate undertakings much as any strong emotion. Im so sorry. Did As oft as any passion under heaven you tell him anything that might have hurt his That does afflict our natures. I am sorry. What, have you given him any hard words of late?

But as you did command No, father, but I did what you told me to do and I did repel his fetters and denied sent back his letters and wouldnt let him visit His access to me. Thats what made him crazy. I regret not I am sorry that with better heed and judgment observing him more closely before I told you to I had not quoted him. I feared he did but trifle do that. I thought he was just toying with you and And meant to wreck thee.

But beshrew my jealousy! Damn my By heaven, it is as proper to our age suspicious thoughts! Its as common for us old To cast beyond ourselves in our opinions people to assume we know more than we do as As it is common for the younger sort for young people to be too wild and crazy.

Come To lack discretion. Come, go we to the king. Weve got to discuss This must be known, which, being kept close, might this matter, which could cause more trouble if we move keep it secret than if we discuss it openly. Act 2, Scene 2 Flourish. Welcome, dear Rosencrantz and Moreover that we much did long to see you, Guildenstern. Ive wanted to see you for a The need we have to use you did provoke long time now, but I sent for you so hastily Our hasty sending.

Something have you heard because I need your help right away. What it should be, word for it, since inside and out hes More than his fathers death, that thus hath put him different from what he was before. I cant So much from th' understanding of himself, imagine whats made him so unlike 10 I cannot dream of. I entreat you both himself, other than his fathers death. That, being of so young days brought up with him Since you both grew up with him and are And since so neighbored to his youth and 'havior, so familiar with his personality and That you vouchsafe your rest here in our court behavior, Im asking you to stay a while at Some little time so by your companies court and spend some time with him.

See 15 To draw him on to pleasures and to gather, if you can get Hamlet to have some fun, So much as from occasion you may glean, and find out if theres anything in particular Whether aught, to us unknown, afflicts him thus thats bothering him, so we can set about That, opened, lies within our remedy. Gentlemen, Hamlets talked a lot about 20 And sure I am two men there are not living you, and I know there are no two men To whom he more adheres.

If it will please you alive hes fonder of. If youll be so good as To show us so much gentry and good will to spend some time with us and help us As to expend your time with us awhile out, youll be thanked on a royal scale.

For the supply and profit of our hope, 25 Your visitation shall receive such thanks As fits a kings remembrance. Might, by the sovereign power you have of us, execute your command, instead of asking us so Put your dread pleasures more into command politely. Than to entreaty. Our services are entirely at your 30 And here give up ourselves, in the full bent, command. To lay our service freely at your feet To be commanded. Thanks, Rosencrantz and worthy Guildenstern.

Shakespeare's Hamlet in Plain English

Go, some of you, whos changed too much. Servants, take these And bring these gentlemen where Hamlet is. Amen to that! Are joyfully returned. Once again you bring good news. I assure my good liege, Do I, sir? I assure your majesty Im only doing my I hold my duty as I hold my soul, duty both to my God and my good king. Act 2, Scene 2, Page 3 And I do thinkor else this brain of mine And I believeunless this brain of mine is not so Hunts not the trail of policy so sure politically cunning as it used to bethat Ive As it hath used to dothat I have found found out why Hamlets gone crazy.

The very cause of Hamlets lunacy. That do I long to hear. Tell me! I want very much to find out. All right, but first let the ambassadors speak. My news shall be the fruit to that great feast. Then you can hear my news, as dessert. Then be so kind as to show them in. He tells me, my dear Gertrude, he hath found Gertrude, he says hes found out the reason for 55 The head and source of all your sons distemper. I doubt its anything but the obvious reason: His fathers death and our o'erhasty marriage.

Welcome, my good friends!

Well, well get to the bottom of it. Welcome, my Say, Voltemand, what from our brother Norway? Tell me, Voltemand, whats the news from the king of Norway? Greetings to you too, your Highness. As soon as Upon our first, he sent out to suppress we raised the matter, the king sent out His nephews levies, which to him appeared messengers to stop his nephews war To be a preparation 'gainst the Polack, preparations, which he originally thought were But, better looked into, he truly found directed against Poland but learned on closer 65 It was against your highness.

Whereat grieved examination were directed against you. He was That so his sickness, age, and impotence very upset that Fortinbras had taken advantage of Was falsely borne in handsends out arrests his being old and sick to deceive him, and he On Fortinbras, which he, in brief, obeys, ordered Fortinbrass arrest.

Fortinbras swore Receives rebuke from Norway, and in fine never to threaten Denmark again. Whereon old Norway, overcome with joy,. Act 2, Scene 2, Page 4 Gives him three thousand crowns in annual fee The old king was so overjoyed by this promise 75 And his commission to employ those soldiers, that he gave young Fortinbras an annual income So levied as before, against the Polack, of three thousand crowns and permission to lead With an entreaty, herein further shown, his soldiers into Poland, asking you officially in That it might please you to give quiet pass this letter to allow his troops to pass through your Through your dominions for this enterprise, kingdom on their way to Poland.

Hes assuring 80 On such regards of safety and allowance you of your safety. Meanwhile, Answer, and think upon this business. Go relax now. Tonight Meantime we thank you for your well-took labor. Welcome back! At night well feast together. Most welcome home! Well, that turned out well in the end. Sir and My liege and madam, to expostulate madam, to make grand speeches about what What majesty should be, what duty is, majesty is, what service is, or why day is day, 90 Why day is day, night night, and time is time, night is night, and time is time is just a waste of a Were nothing but to waste night, day, and time.

Therefore, since the Therefore, since brevity is the soul of wit essence of wisdom is not talking too much, Ill And tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes, get right to the point here.

Your son is crazy. I will be brief: Crazy Im calling it, since how can you say what 95 Mad call I it, for, to define true madness, craziness is except to say that its craziness? But What is t but to be nothing else but mad? But let that go. More matter, with less art. Please, stick to the point. Madam, Im doing nothing but sticking to the That he is mad, tis true. Tis true, tis pity, point. Its true hes crazy, and its a shame its And pity tis tis truea foolish figure, true, and its truly a shame hes crazybut now I But farewell it, for I will use no art.

Mad let us grant him then. And now remains. Act 2, Scene 2, Page 5 That we find out the cause of this effect, Now, if we agree Hamlets crazy, then the next Or rather say, the cause of this defect, step is to figure out the cause of this effect of For this effect defective comes by cause.

This is what we must do, and Who in her duty and obedience, mark, thats exactly what needs to be done. Think Hath given me this.

Now gather and surmise. I have a daughter I have her until she reads a letter To the celestial and my souls idol, gets married whos given me this letter, the most beautified OpheliaThats an ill phrase, a considering it her duty. Listen and think about vile phrase. Beautified is a vile phrase.

But you this: But Ill go on: Hamlet wrote this letter to Ophelia? I will be faithful. Madam, please be patient. Ill read it to you. But never doubt I love. You may wonder if the truth is a liar, O dear Ophelia, I am ill at these numbers. I have But never wonder if I love. I cant put my oh, most best, believe it. Believe it.

And more above, hath his solicitings, Dutifully and obediently my daughter showed me As they fell out by time, by means, and place, this letter, and more like it. Shes told me all All given to mine ear. And how did she react to all this? Sir, what is your opinion of me? As of a man faithful and honorable. I know you are loyal and honorable. But what might you think, I would like to prove to you that I am.

But what When I had seen this hot love on the wing would you have thought of me if I had kept quiet As I perceived it, I must tell you that, when I found out about this hot little love which I Before my daughter told mewhat might you, noticed even before my daughter told me about Or my dear majesty your queen here, think, it?

My dear queen, what would you have If I had played the desk or table-book, thought of me if I had turned a blind eye to what Or given my heart a winking, mute and dumb, was happening between Hamlet and my Or looked upon this love with idle sight? No, I had to do something. And so I What might you think? No, I went round to work, said to my daughter: Lord Hamlet is a prince, And my young mistress thus I did bespeak: You have to end this.

Lord Hamlet is a prince out of thy star. And then I gave her orders to stay away from This must not be. And then I prescripts gave her, him, and not to accept any messages or little That she should lock herself from his resort, gifts from him. She did what I said. When she Admit no messengers, receive no tokens. And thats why hes Fell into a sadness, then into a fast, crazy now, and all of us feel sorry for him.
