By heaven, I'll make a ghost of him that lets me! A more remote part of the Castle. Whither wilt thou lead me? I'll go no further. My hour is almost come, When I to sulph'uous and tormenting flames Must render up myself.
Pity me not, but lend thy serious hearing To what I shall unfold. Speak;I am bound to hear. Murder most foul, as in the best it is; But this most foul, strange, and unnatural.
Haste me to know't, that I, with wings as swift As meditation or the thoughts of love, May sweep to my revenge. O my prophetic soul! Ay, that incestuous, that adulterate beast, With witchcraft of his wit, with traitorous gifts, Won to his shameful lust The will of my most seeming-virtuous queen: Thus was I, sleeping, by a brother's hand, Of life, of crown, of queen, at once dispatch'd: Cut off even in the blossoms of my sin, Unhous'led, disappointed, unanel'd; No reckoning made, but sent to my account With all my imperfections on my head: If thou hast nature in thee, bear it not; Let not the royal bed of Denmark be A couch for luxury and damned incest.

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 help, And to the last bended their light on me. Come, go with me: I will go seek the king. This must be known. A room in the Castle. Welcome, dear Rosencrantz and Guildenstern!

I beseech you instantly to visit My too-much-changed son. Heavens make our presence and our practices Pleasant and helpful to him! O, speak of that; that do I long to hear. I will be brief: Mad call I it; for to define true madness, What is't but to be nothing else but mad?
More matter, with less art.
Madam, I swear I use no art at all. That he is mad, 'tis true: Came this from Hamlet to her? Good madam, stay awhile; I will be faithful. But how hath she receiv'd his love? To my young mistress thus I did bespeak:Explore the different themes within William Shakespeare's tragic play, Hamlet.
