|1||A room in POLONIUS' house.||*Kelkuvi mì kelku POLONYUSÌyä.|
|Enter POLONIUS and REYNALDO||Fpxäkìm POLONYUSÌ sì REYNALTO|
|LORD POLONIUS||Give him this money and these notes, Reynaldo.||Poan tìng fì'[money] sì fayupxare, Reynaldo|
|REYNALDO||I will, my lord.||Oe sayi fìkem, ma oeyä 'eyktan.|
|5||LORD POLONIUS||You shall do marvellous wisely, good Reynaldo,||Nga sayi nìtxantslusam txan, sìltsana Reynaldo,|
|Before you visit him, to make inquire||ngal eo tse'a poanìt, pawm poanur|
|Of his behavior.||poanä ayhemteri.|
|REYNALDO||My lord, I did intend it.||Ma oeyä 'eyktan, oe nivew sivi fìkem.|
|LORD POLONIUS||Marry, well said; very well said. Look you, sir,||Fpi Eywa, nìltsan pìmllte; nìtxan nìltsan pìmllte. Tìng nari, ma tutean,|
|10||Inquire me first what Danskers are in Paris;||ngal pawm oeti 'awve peu Danskers tok mì Pari;|
|And how, and who, what means, and where they keep,||ulte peyfa, ulte pesu, peyfa ayfo tsun lu, ulte peseng ayfo keltu si,|
|What company, at what expense; and finding||peu aysmuk, peu [expense]; ulte|
|By this encompassment and drift of question|
|That they do know my son, come you more nearer|
|15||Than your particular demands will touch it:|
|Take you, as 'twere, some distant knowledge of him;|
|As thus, 'I know his father and his friends,|
|And in part him: ' do you mark this, Reynaldo?|
|REYNALDO||Ay, very well, my lord.|
|20||LORD POLONIUS||'And in part him; but' you may say 'not well:|
|But, if't be he I mean, he's very wild;|
|Addicted so and so:' and there put on him|
|What forgeries you please; marry, none so rank|
|As may dishonour him; take heed of that;|
|25||But, sir, such wanton, wild and usual slips|
|As are companions noted and most known|
|To youth and liberty.|
|REYNALDO||As gaming, my lord.|
|LORD POLONIUS||Ay, or drinking, fencing, swearing, quarrelling,|
|30||Drabbing: you may go so far.|
|REYNALDO||My lord, that would dishonour him.|
|LORD POLONIUS||'Faith, no; as you may season it in the charge|
|You must not put another scandal on him,|
|That he is open to incontinency;|
|35||That's not my meaning: but breathe his faults so quaintly|
|That they may seem the taints of liberty,|
|The flash and outbreak of a fiery mind,|
|A savageness in unreclaimed blood,|
|Of general assault.|
|40||REYNALDO||But, my good lord,--|
|LORD POLONIUS||Wherefore should you do this?|
|REYNALDO||Ay, my lord,|
|I would know that.|
|LORD POLONIUS||Marry, sir, here's my drift;|
|45||And I believe, it is a fetch of wit:|
|You laying these slight sullies on my son,|
|As 'twere a thing a little soil'd i' the working, Mark you,|
|Your party in converse, him you would sound,|
|Having ever seen in the prenominate crimes|
|50||The youth you breathe of guilty, be assured|
|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.|
|55||REYNALDO||Very good, my lord.|
|LORD POLONIUS||And then, sir, does he this--he does--what was I|
|about to say? By the mass, I was about to say|
|something: where did I leave?|
|REYNALDO||At 'closes in the consequence,' at 'friend or so,' and 'gentleman.'|
|60||LORD POLONIUS||At 'closes in the consequence,' ay, marry;|
|He closes thus: 'I know the gentleman;|
|I saw him yesterday, or t' other day,|
|Or then, or then; with such, or such; and, as you say,|
|There was a' gaming; there o'ertook in's rouse;|
|65||There falling out at tennis:' or perchance,|
|'I saw him enter such a house of sale,'|
|Videlicet, a brothel, or so forth.|
|See you now;|
|Your bait of falsehood takes this carp of truth:|
|70||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 son. You have me, have you not?|
|75||REYNALDO||My lord, I have.|
|LORD POLONIUS||God be wi' you; fare you well.|
|REYNALDO||Good my lord!|
|LORD POLONIUS||Observe his inclination in yourself.|
|REYNALDO||I shall, my lord.|
|80||LORD POLONIUS||And let him ply his music.|
|REYNALDO||Well, my lord.|
|Exit REYNALDO||REYNALTO hum|
|Enter OPHELIA||Fpxäkìm OFELYA|
|85||LORD POLONIUS||How now, Ophelia! what's the matter?|
|OPHELIA||O, my lord, my lord, I have been so affrighted!|
|LORD POLONIUS||With what, i' the name of God?|
|OPHELIA||My lord, as I was sewing in my closet,|
|Lord Hamlet, with his doublet all unbraced;|
|90||No hat upon his head; his stockings foul'd,|
|Ungarter'd, and down-gyved to his ancle;|
|Pale as his shirt; his knees knocking each other;|
|And with a look so piteous in purport|
|As if he had been loosed out of hell|
|95||To speak of horrors,--he comes before me.|
|LORD POLONIUS||Mad for thy love?|
|OPHELIA||My lord, I do not know;|
|But truly, I do fear it.|
|LORD POLONIUS||What said he?|
|100||OPHELIA||He took me by the wrist and held me hard;|
|Then goes he to the length of all his arm;|
|And, with his other hand thus o'er his brow,|
|He falls to such perusal of my face|
|As he would draw it. Long stay'd he so;|
|105||At last, a 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 being: that done, he lets me go:|
|110||And, with 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,|
|And, to the last, bended their light on me.|
|LORD POLONIUS||Come, go with me: I will go seek the king.|
|115||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 natures. I am sorry.|
|120||What, have you given him any hard words of late?|
|OPHELIA||No, my good lord, but, as you did command,|
|I did repel his fetters and denied|
|His access to me.|
|LORD POLONIUS||That hath made him mad.|
|125||I am sorry that with better heed and judgment|
|I had not quoted him: I fear'd he did but trifle,|
|And meant to wreck thee; but, beshrew my jealousy!|
|By heaven, it is as proper to our age|
|To cast beyond ourselves in our opinions|
|130||As it is common for the younger sort|
|To lack discretion. Come, go we to the king:|
|This must be known; which, being kept close, might move|
|More grief to hide than hate to utter love.|
