74          Mar. Is it not like the King?1.1.58
75          Hora. As thou art to thy selfe.1.1.59
76         Such was the very Armor he had on,1.1.60

90         And forraine marte, for implements of warre,1.1.74
91         Why such impresse of ship-writes, whose sore taske1.1.75
92         Does not deuide the Sunday from the weeke,1.1.76
93         What might be toward that this sweaty hast1.1.77
94         Doth make the night ioynt labourer with the day,1.1.78
95         Who ist that can informe mee?1.1.79
96          Hora. That can I.1.1.79
97         <nn5> At least the whisper goes so; our last King,1.1.80

99         Was as you knowe by Fortinbrasse of Norway,1.1.82
100       Thereto prickt on by a most emulate pride1.1.83
101       Dar'd to the combat; in which our valiant Hamlet,1.1.84
102       (For so this side of our knowne world esteemd him)1.1.85
103       Did slay this Fortinbrasse, who by a seald compact1.1.86
104       Well ratified by lawe and {heraldy} <Heraldrie,>1.1.87
105       {B2v} Did forfait (with his life) all {these} <those> his lands1.1.88

108       Was gaged by our King, which had {returne} <return'd>1.1.91
109       To the inheritance of Fortinbrasse,1.1.92
110       Had he bin vanquisher; as by the same {comart,} <Cou'nant>1.1.93
111       And carriage of the article desseigne,1.1.94

115       Sharkt vp a list of {lawelesse} <Landlesse> resolutes1.1.98

124+2   {Well may it sort that this portentous figure}1.1.109
124+3   {Comes armed through our watch so like the King}1.1.110
124+4   {That was and is the question of these warres.}1.1.111
124+5   { Hora. A moth it is to trouble the mindes eye:}1.1.112
124+6   {In the most high and palmy state of Rome,}1.1.113
124+7   {A little ere the mightiest Iulius fell}1.1.114
124+8   {The graues stood tennatlesse, and the sheeted dead}1.1.115
124+9   {Did squeake and gibber in the Roman streets}1.1.116
124+10 {As starres with traines of fier, and dewes of blood}1.1.117
124+11 {Disasters in the sunne; and the moist starre,}1.1.118
124+12 {Vpon whose influence Neptunes Empier stands,}1.1.119
124+13 {Was sicke almost to doomesday with eclipse.}1.1.120
124+14 {And euen the like precurse of feare euents}1.1.121
124+15 {As harbindgers preceading still the fates}1.1.122
124+16 {And prologue to the Omen comming on}1.1.123
124+17 {Haue heauen and earth together demonstrated}1.1.124
124+18 {Vnto our Climatures and countrymen.}1.1.125

137        Mar. Shall I strike <at> it with my partizan?1.1.140
138        Hor. Doe if it will not stand.1.1.141
139        Bar. Tis heere.1.1.141
140        Hor. Tis heere.1.1.141
141        Mar. Tis gone. <Exit Ghost.>1.1.142
142       We doe it wrong being so Maiesticall1.1.143
143       To offer it the showe of violence,1.1.144
144       For it is as the ayre, invulnerable,1.1.145
145       And our vaine blowes malicious mockery.1.1.146
146        Bar. It was about to speake when the cock crewe.1.1.147
147        Hor. And then it started like a guilty thing,1.1.148
148       Vpon a fearefull summons; I haue heard,1.1.149
149       The Cock that is the trumpet to the {morne} <day>,1.1.150
150       Doth with his lofty and shrill sounding throat1.1.151
151       Awake the God of day, and at his warning1.1.152
152       Whether in sea or fire, in earth or ayre1.1.153
153       Th'extrauagant and erring spirit hies1.1.154
154       To his confine, and of the truth heerein1.1.155
155       This present obiect made probation.1.1.156
156        Mar. It faded on the crowing of the Cock.1.1.157
157       Some {say} <sayes,> that euer gainst that season comes1.1.158
158       Wherein our Sauiours birth is celebrated1.1.159
159       {This} <The> bird of dawning singeth all night long,1.1.160
160       And then they say no spirit {dare sturre} <can walke> abraode1.1.161
161       The nights are wholsome, then no plannets strike,1.1.162
162       No fairy {takes} <talkes>, nor witch hath power to charme1.1.163
163       {B3v} So {hallowed} <hallow'd>, and so gratious is {that} <the> time.1.1.164
164        Hora. So haue I heard and doe in part belieue it,1.1.165
165       But looke the morne in russet mantle clad1.1.166
166       Walkes ore the dewe of yon high {Eastward} <Easterne> hill1.1.167
167       Breake we our watch vp and by my aduise1.1.168
168       Let vs impart what we haue seene to night1.1.169
169       Vnto young Hamlet, for vppon my life1.1.170

171       Doe you consent we shall acquaint him with it1.1.172
172       As needfull in our loues, fitting our duty.1.1.173
173        Mar. {Lets} <Let> doo't I pray, and I this morning knowe1.1.174

181       To beare our harts in griefe, and our whole Kingdome,1.2.3
182       To be contracted in one browe of woe1.2.4
183       Yet so farre hath discretion fought with nature,1.2.5
184       That we with wisest sorrowe thinke on him1.2.6
185       Together with remembrance of our selues:1.2.7
186       Therefore our {sometime} <sometimes> Sister, now our Queene1.2.8

191       In equall scale waighing delight and dole1.2.13
192       Taken to wife: nor haue we heerein bard1.2.14
193       Your better wisdomes, which haue freely gone1.2.15
194       With this affaire along (for all our thankes)1.2.16
195       Now followes that you knowe young Fortinbrasse,1.2.17
196       Holding a weake supposall of our worth1.2.18
197       Or thinking by our late deare brothers death1.2.19
198       Our state to be disioynt, and out of frame1.2.20
199       Coleagued with {this} <the> dreame of his aduantage1.2.21

201       {B4} Importing the surrender of those lands1.2.23
202       Lost by his father, with all {bands} <Bonds> of lawe1.2.24
203       To our most valiant brother, so much for him:1.2.25
204       <Enter Voltemand and Cornelius.>1.2.
205       Now for our selfe, and for this time of meeting,1.2.26
206       Thus much the busines is, we haue heere writ1.2.27
207       To Norway Vncle of young Fortenbrasse1.2.28

212       Out of his subiect, and we heere dispatch1.2.33
213       You good Cornelius, and you Valtemand,1.2.34
214       For {bearers} <bearing> of this greeting to old Norway,1.2.35
215       Giuing to you no further personall power1.2.36
216       To busines with the King, more then the scope1.2.37
217       Of these {delated} <dilated> articles allowe:1.2.38
218       Farwell, and let your hast commend your dutie.1.2.39
219        {Cor.} Vo. In that, and all things will we showe our dutie.1.2.40
220        King. We doubt it nothing, hartely farwell.1.2.41
221       <Exit Voltemand and Cornelius.>..
222       And now Laertes whats the newes with you?1.2.42
223       <nn5v> You told vs of some sute, what ist Laertes? 1.2.43
224       You cannot speake of reason to the Dane1.2.44
225       And lose your voyce; what wold'st thou begge Laertes,?1.2.45
226       That shall not be my offer, not thy asking,1.2.46
227       The head is not more natiue to the hart1.2.47
228       The hand more instrumentall to the mouth1.2.48
229       Then is the throne of Denmarke to thy father,1.2.49
230       What would'st thou haue Laertes?1.2.50
231        Laer. {My dread} <Dread my> Lord,1.2.50

233       From whence, though willingly I came to Denmarke,1.2.52
234       To showe my dutie in your Coronation;1.2.53
235       Yet now I must confesse, that duty done1.2.54
236       My thoughts and wishes bend againe {toward} <towards> Fraunce1.2.55
237       And bowe them to your gracious leaue and pardon.1.2.56
238-9    King. Haue you your fathers leaue, | what saies Polonius? 
240        Polo. <He> Hath my Lord {wroung from me my slowe leaue}1.2.58
240+1   {By laboursome petition, and at last}1.2.59
240+2   {Vpon his will I seald my hard consent,}1.2.60
241       {B4v} I doe beseech you giue him leaue to goe.1.2.61
242        King. Take thy faire houre Laertes, time be thine1.2.62
243       And thy best graces spend it at thy will:1.2.63
244       But now my Cosin Hamlet, and my sonne{.}<?>1.2.64
245        Ham. A little more then kin, and lesse then kind.1.2.65
246        King. How is it that the clowdes still hang on you.1.2.66
247        Ham. Not so {much} my Lord, I am too much {in the sonne} <i'th'Sun>.1.2.67
248        Queene. Good Hamlet cast thy {nighted} <nightly> colour off1.2.68
249       And let thine eye looke like a friend on Denmarke,1.2.69
250       Doe not for euer with thy {vailed} <veyled> lids1.2.70
251       Seeke for thy noble Father in the dust,1.2.71
252       Thou know'st tis common all that liues must die,1.2.72
253       Passing through nature to eternitie.1.2.73
254        Ham. I Maddam, it is common.1.2.74
255        Quee. If it be1.2.74
256       VVhy seemes it so perticuler with thee.1.2.75
257        Ham. Seemes Maddam, nay it is, I know not seemes,1.2.76
258       Tis not alone my incky cloake {coold} <good> mother1.2.77
259       Nor customary suites of solembe blacke1.2.78
260       Nor windie suspiration of forst breath1.2.79
261       No, nor the fruitfull riuer in the eye,1.2.80
262       Nor the deiected hauior of the visage1.2.81
263       Together with all formes, moodes, {chapes} <shewes> of griefe1.2.82
264       That can {deuote} <denote> me truely, these indeede seeme,1.2.83
265       For they are actions that a man might play1.2.84
266       But I haue that within which {passes} <passeth> showe1.2.85
267       These but the trappings and the suites of woe.1.2.86
268-9    King. Tis sweete and commendable | in your nature Hamlet,1.2.87
270       To giue these mourning duties to your father1.2.88
271       But you must knowe your father lost a father,1.2.89
272       That father lost, lost his, and the suruiuer bound1.2.90
273       In filliall obligation for some tearme1.2.91
274       To doe obsequious sorrowe, but to perseuer1.2.92
275       In obstinate condolement, is a course1.2.93
276       Of impious stubbornes, tis vnmanly griefe,1.2.94
277       It showes a will most incorrect to heauen1.2.95
278       A hart vnfortified, {or} <a> minde impatient1.2.96
279       An vnderstanding simple and vnschoold1.2.97

1161     When I had seene this hote loue on the wing,2.2.132
1162     As I perceiu'd it (I must tell you that)2.2.133
1163     Before my daughter told me, what might you,2.2.134

1210      Pol. Doe you knowe me my Lord?2.2.173
1211      Ham. Excellent <excellent> well, {you are} <y'are> a Fishmonger.2.2.174
1212      Pol. Not I my Lord.2.2.175
1213      Ham. Then I would you were so honest a man.2.2.176

1217      Pol. That's very true my Lord.2.2.180

1221      Pol. I haue my Lord.2.2.183

1233      Pol. I meane the matter {that} you {reade} <meane,> my Lord.2.2.195
1234-5  Ham. Slaunders sir; for the satericall {rogue} <slaue> sayes heere, | that old 
1235-6  men haue gray beards, that their faces are {wrinckled,} <wrin-| kled;> their eyes 
1236-7  purging thick Amber, {&} <or> plumtree | gum, & that they haue a plen- 
1237-8 {Flv} tifull {lacke} <locke> of wit, | together with {most} weake hams, all which sir 
1238-40 though I | most powerfully and potentlie belieue, yet I hold it | not 
1240-1 honesty to haue it thus set downe, for <you> your | selfe sir {shall growe} <should be> old 
1241-2 as I am: if like a Crab you could | goe backward. 
1243-4  Pol. Though this be madnesse, | yet there is method in't, will you 
1244-5 walke | out of the ayre my Lord?  
1246      Ham. Into my graue.2.2.207
1247-8  Pol. Indeede {that's} <that is> out {of the ayre;} <o'th'Ayre:> | how pregnant sometimes 
1248-51 his replies are, | a happines | that often madnesse hits on, | which reason

1257     <take my leaue of you.>2.2.214
1258     <Oo3v>  Ham. You cannot <Sir> take from mee any thing that I | will {not} more2.2.
1259     willingly part withall: except my life, {except my life, except} my2.2.216
1260     life.                     {Enter Guyldersterne, and Rosencraus.}2.2.217

1281     {What} <What's the> newes?2.2.236
1282-3  Ros. None my Lord, but <that> the worlds growne | honest. 
1284-5  Ham. Then is Doomes day neere, but your newes is | not true;  
1285     <Let me question more in particular: what haue>2.2.240
1286     <you my good friends, deserued at the hands of Fortune,>2.2.241

1297     <a prison.>2.2.251

1316     <man: I am most dreadfully attended;>2.2.269
1316-7 But in the beaten | way of friendship, what make you at Elsonoure? 
1318      Ros. To visit you my Lord, no other occasion.2.2.271
1319-20  Ham. Begger that I am, I am {euer} <euen> poore in thankes, | but I thanke 
1320-1 you, and sure deare friends, my thankes | are too deare a halfpeny: 
1321-2 were you not sent for? | is it your owne inclining? is it a free visitati- 
1322-3 on? come, {come,} | deale iustly with me, come, come, nay speake. 
1324      Guy. What should we say my Lord?2.2.277
1325     {F2}  Ham. <Why> Any thing but {to'th} <to the> purpose: you were | sent for, and there is2.2.278
1326-7 a kind {of} confession in your lookes, | which your modesties haue not 
1327-8 craft enough to {cullour} <co-| lor>, I know the good King and Queene haue 
1328     sent for you.2.2.281
1329      Ros. To what end my Lord?2.2.282
1330-1  Ham. That you must teach me: but let me coniure | you, by the 
1331-2 rights of our fellowship, by the consonancie of | our youth, by the 
1332-3 obligation of our euer preserued loue; | and by what more deare a  
1333-4 better proposer {can} <could> charge | you withall, bee euen and direct with 
1334-5 me whether you | were sent for or no. 
1336      Ros. What say you.2.2.288
1337-8  Ham. Nay then I haue an eye of you? if you loue me | hold not of. 
1339      Guyl. My Lord we were sent for.2.2.292
1340-1  Ham. I will tell you why, so shall my anticipation | preuent your 
1341-2 discouery, {and} <of> your secrecie to the King & | Queene moult no fea- 
1342-3 ther, I haue of late, but wherefore | I knowe not, lost all my mirth, 
1343-4 forgon all custome of {exercises:} <ex-| ercise;> and indeede it goes so {heauily} <heauenly> with 
1344-5 my {disposition,} <dispositi-| on;> that this goodly frame the earth, seemes to mee a  
1345-7 {sterill} <ster-| rill> promontorie, this most excellent Canopie the ayre, | looke 
1347-8 you, this braue orehanging {firmament}, this maiesticall roofe | fret- 
1348-9 ted with golden fire, why it {appeareth nothing} <appeares no other thing> | to me {but} <then> a foule 
1349-50 and pestilent congregation of {vapoures} <va-| pours>. What <a> peece of worke is a 
1350-1 man, how noble in | reason, how infinit in {faculties,} <faculty?> in forme and 
1351-2 moouing{,} | how expresse and admirable<?> in action, how like an An- 
1353-4 gell <?> in apprehension, how like a God: the beautie of the | world; the 
1354-5 paragon of Annimales; and yet to me, what is | this Quintessence of 
1355-6 dust: man delights not me, <no,> | nor {women} <Woman> neither, though by your 
1356-7 smilling, you seeme | to say so. 
1358-9  Ros. My Lord, there was no such stuffe in my | thoughts. 
1360-1  Ham. Why did {yee} <you> laugh {then}, when I sayd man delights | not me. 
1362-3  Ros. To thinke my Lord if you delight not in man, | what Lenton 
1363-4 entertainment the players shall receaue | from you, we coted them 
1364-5 on the way, and hether are | they comming to offer you seruice. 
1366-7  Ham. He that playes the King shal be welcome, his | Maiestie shal 
1367-8 haue tribute {on} <of> me, the aduenterous | Knight shall vse his foyle and 
1368-9 target, the Louer shall | not sigh gratis, the humorus Man shall end 
1369-70 his part in | peace, <the Clowne shall make those laugh whose lungs> 
1371-2 <are tickled a'th'sere:> and the Lady shall say her minde | freely: or the 
1372-3 {black} <blanke> verse shall hault for't. What players | are they? 
1374-5  Ros. Euen those you were wont to take {such} delight in, | the Trage- 
1375     dians of the Citty.2.2.328
1376     {F2v}  Ham. How chances it they trauaile? their {residence} <resi-| dence> both in repu- 2.2.329
1377-8 tation, and profit was better both | wayes. 
1379-80  Ros. I thinke their inhibition, comes by the meanes | of the late  
1380     innouasion. 
1381-2  Ham. Doe they hold the same estimation they did | when I was in 
1382     the Citty; are they so {followed.} <follow'd?>2.2.335
1383      Ros. No indeede {are they} <they are> not.2.2.336
1384     < Ham. How comes it? doe they grow rusty?>2.2.337
1385     < Rosin. Nay, their indeauour keepes in the wonted>2.2.338

1408     < Rosin. I that they do my Lord, Hercules & his load too.>2.2.362
1409-10 Ham. It is not {very} strange, for {my} <mine> Vncle is King of | Denmarke, and 
1410-1  those that would make {mouths} <mowes> at him | while my father liued, giue 
1411-2  twenty, fortie, {fifty, a} <an> hundred | duckets a peece, for his Picture

1416     Guyl. There are the players.2.2.369

1514     But with the whiffe and winde of his fell sword,2.2.473
1515     Th'vnnerued father fals: <Then senselesse Illium,>2.2.474
1516     Seeming to feele {this} <his> blowe, with flaming top2.2.475

1518     Takes prisoner Pirrhus eare, for loe his sword2.2.477
1519     Which was declining on the milkie head2.2.478
1520     Of {reuerent} <Reuerend> Priam, seem'd i'th ayre to stick,2.2.479

1527     Doth rend the region, so after Pirrhus pause,2.2.487
1528     A rowsed vengeance sets him new a worke,2.2.488
1529     And neuer did the Cyclops hammers fall,2.2.489
1530     On {Marses Armor} <Mars his Armours,> forg'd for proofe eterne,2.2.490
1531     With lesse remorse then Pirrhus bleeding sword2.2.491

1537     As lowe as to the fiends.2.2.497
1538      Pol. This is too long.2.2.498

1551     Who this had seene, with tongue in venom steept,2.2.510
1552     Gainst fortunes state would treason haue pronounst;2.2.511
1553     But if the gods themselues did see her then,2.2.512
1554     When she saw Pirrhus make malicious sport2.2.513
1555     In mincing with his sword her {husband} <Husbands> limmes,2.2.514
1556     The instant burst of clamor that she made,2.2.515
1557     Vnlesse things mortall mooue them not at all,2.2.516

1718     Deuoutly to be wisht to die to sleepe,3.1.63
1719     To sleepe, perchance to dreame, I there's the rub,3.1.64
1720     For in that sleepe of death what dreames may come3.1.65
1721     When we haue shuffled off this mortall coyle3.1.66
1722     Must giue vs pause, there's the respect3.1.67
1723     That makes calamitie of so long life:3.1.68
1724     For who would beare the whips and scornes of time,3.1.69
1725     {Th'oppressors} <The Oppressors> wrong, the {proude} <poore> mans contumely,3.1.70
1726     The pangs of {despiz'd} <dispriz'd> loue, the lawes delay,3.1.71
1727     The insolence of office, and the spurnes3.1.72
1728     That patient merrit of {th'vnworthy} <the vnworthy> takes,3.1.73
1729     When he himselfe might his quietas make3.1.74
1730     With a bare bodkin; who would <these> fardels beare,3.1.75
1731     To grunt and sweat vnder a wearie life,3.1.76
1732     But that the dread of something after death,3.1.77
1733     The {vndiscouer'd} <vndiscouered> country, from whose borne3.1.78
1734     {G2v} No trauiler returnes, puzzels the will,3.1.79
1735     And makes vs rather beare those ills we haue,3.1.80
1736     Then flie to others that we know not of.3.1.81
1737     Thus conscience dooes make cowards <of vs all>, 3.1.82
1738     And thus the natiue hiew of resolution3.1.83
1739     Is {sickled} <sicklied> ore with the pale cast of thought,3.1.84
1740     And enterprises of great {pitch} <pith> and moment,3.1.85
1741     With this regard theyr currents turne {awry} <away>,3.1.86
1742     And loose the name of action. Soft you now,3.1.87
1743     The faire Ophelia, Nimph in thy orizons3.1.88
1744     Be all my sinnes remembred.3.1.89
1745      Oph. Good my Lord,3.1.89
1746     How dooes your honour for this many a day?3.1.90
1747      Ham. I humbly thanke you <: well, well,> well.3.1.91
1748      Oph. My Lord, I haue remembrances of yours3.1.92
1749     That I haue longed long to redeliuer,3.1.93
1750     I pray you now receiue them.3.1.94
1751      Ham. No, {not I} <no>, I neuer gaue you ought.3.1.95
1752      Oph. My honor'd Lord, {you} <I> know right well you did,3.1.96
1753     And with them words of so sweet breath composd3.1.97
1754     As made {these} <the> things more rich, {their} <then> perfume {lost,} <left:>3.1.98
1755     Take these againe, for to the noble mind3.1.99
1756     Rich gifts wax poore when giuers prooue vnkind,3.1.100
1757     There my Lord.3.1.101
1758      Ham. Ha, ha, are you honest.3.1.102
1759      Oph. My Lord.3.1.103
1760      Ham. Are you faire?3.1.104
1761      Oph. What meanes your Lordship?3.1.105
1762-3  Ham. That if you be honest & faire, {you} <your Honesty> | should admit 
1763     no discourse to your beautie.3.1.107
1764      Oph. Could beauty my Lord haue better comerse3.1.109
1765     Then {with} <your> honestie?3.1.109
1766-7  Ham. I truly, for the power of beautie will sooner | transforme ho- 
1767-8 nestie from what it is to a bawde, then the | force of honestie can trans- 
1768-9 late beautie into his likenes, | this was sometime a paradox, but now the 
1769-70 time giues it | proofe, I did loue you once. 
1771      Oph. Indeed my Lord you made me belieue so.3.1.115
1772-3  Ham. You should not haue beleeu'd me, for vertue cannot so 
1773-4 {euocutat} <innocculate> our old stock, but we shall relish of it, I loued you not. 
1775     {G3}  Oph. I was the more deceiued.3.1.119
1776-7  Ham. Get thee {a Nunry} <to a Nunnerie>, why would'st thou be a breeder of sin- 
1777-8 ners, I am my selfe indifferent honest, but yet I could accuse mee of 
1778-9 such things, that it were {better} <bet-| ter> my Mother had not borne mee: I am 
1779-80 very proude, {reuengefull} <re-| uengefull>, ambitious, with more offences at my beck, 
1781-2 then I haue thoughts to put them in, imagination to giue them shape, 
1782-3 <Oo5v> or time to act them in: what should such | fellowes as I do crauling be- 
1783-4 tweene {earth and heauen,} <Heauen and Earth.>| wee are arrant knaues <all>, beleeue none of vs, 
1784-5 goe thy | waies to a {Nunry} <Nunnery>. Where's your father?  
1786      Oph. At home my Lord.3.1.130
1787      Ham. Let the doores be shut vpon him,3.1.131
1787-8 That he may | play the foole no {where} <way,> but in's owne house, 
1788     Farewell.3.1.132
1789      Oph. O helpe him you sweet heauens.3.1.133
1790-1  Ham. If thou doost marry, Ile giue thee this plague | for thy dow- 
1791-2 rie, be thou as chast as yce, as pure as snow, | thou shalt not escape ca- 
1792-3 lumny; get thee to a {Nunry} <Nunnery>, | <Go,> farewell. Or if thou wilt needes marry, 
1793-4 marry a foole, | for wise men knowe well enough what monsters you 
1795-6 make of them: to a {Nunry} <Nunnery> goe, and quickly to, {farewell} <Far-| well>. 
1797      Oph. <O> Heauenly powers restore him.3.1.141
1798-9  Ham. I haue heard of your {paintings} <pratlings too> well enough, | God {hath} <has> gi- 
1799-1800 uen you one {face} <pace>, and you make your {selfes another,} <selfe an-| other:> you gig {&} <you> am- 
1800-1 ble, and you {list you} <lispe, and> nickname | Gods creatures, and make your wan- 
1801-2 tonnes {ignorance;} <your Ig-| norance.> goe to, Ile no more on't, it hath made me madde, 
1803-4 I say we will haue no {mo marriage,} <more Marriages.> those that are | married alreadie, all 
1804-5 but one shall liue, the rest shall keep | as they are: to a {Nunry} <Nunnery,> go. Exit <Hamlet>. 
1806      Oph. O what a noble mind is heere orethrowne!3.1.150

1812     That suckt the honny of his {musickt} <Musicke> vowes;3.1.156
1813     Now see {what} <that> noble and most soueraigne reason3.1.157
1814     Like sweet bells iangled out of {time} <tune>, and harsh,3.1.158
1815     That vnmatcht forme, and {stature} <Feature> of blowne youth3.1.159

1818     {G3v} Enter King and Polonius...
1819      King. Loue, his affections doe not that way tend,3.1.162
1820     Nor what he spake, though it lackt forme a little,3.1.163
1821     Was not like madnes, there's something in his soule3.1.164
1822     Ore which his melancholy sits on brood,3.1.165
1823     And I doe {doubt, the hatch} <doubt the hatch,> and the disclose3.1.166
1824     VVill be some danger; which {for} to preuent,3.1.167
1825     I haue in quick determination3.1.168
1826     Thus set it downe: he shall with speede to England,3.1.169
1827     For the demaund of our neglected tribute,3.1.170
1828     Haply the seas, and countries different,3.1.171
1829     With variable obiects, shall expell3.1.172
1830     This something setled matter in his hart,3.1.173
1831     Whereon his braines still beating3.1.174
1831-2 Puts him thus | from fashion of himselfe. 
1832     What thinke you on't?3.1.175
1833      Pol. It shall doe well.3.1.176
1833-4 But yet doe I belieue | the origin and comencement of {his} <this> greefe, 
1835     Sprung from neglected loue: How now Ophelia?3.1.178
1836     You neede not tell vs what Lord Hamlet said,3.1.179
1837     We heard it all: my Lord, doe as you please,3.1.180
1838     But if you hold it fit, after the play,3.1.181
1839     Let his Queene-mother all alone intreate him3.1.182
1840     To show his {griefe,} <Greefes:> let her be round with him,3.1.183
1841     And Ile be plac'd (so please you) in the eare3.1.184
1842     Of all their conference, if she find him not,3.1.185
1843     To England send him: or confine him where3.1.186
1844     Your wisedome best shall thinke.3.1.187
1845      King. It shall be so,3.1.187
1846-7 Madnes in great ones must not {vnmatcht} <vnwatch'd> goe.        | Exeunt. 
1848     Enter Hamlet, and <two or > three of the Players...
1849-50  Ham. Speake the speech I pray you as I {pronoun'd} <pronounc'd> | it to you, trip- 
1850-1 pingly on the tongue, but if you mouth it | as many of {our} <your> Players do, 
1851-2 I had as liue the towne cryer | <had> spoke my lines, nor doe not saw the ayre 
1852-3 too much {with} | your hand thus, but vse all gently, for in the very tor- 
1854-5 rent tempest, and as I may say, <the> whirlwind of {your} | passion, you must 
1855-6 acquire and beget a temperance, that | may giue it smoothnesse, ô it 
1856-7 offends mee to the soule, | to {heare} <see> a robustious perwig-pated fellowe 
1858     {G4} tere a {passion to totters}<Passi-| on to tatters>, to very rags, to {spleet} <split> the eares of the | ground- 3.2.10

1860-1 ble dumbe showes, and noyse: I {would} <could> | haue such a fellow whipt for 
1861-2 ore-dooing Termagant, it out Herods Herod, pray you auoyde it. 
1863      Player. I warrant your honour.3.2.15
1864-5  Hamlet. Be not too tame neither, but let your owne | discretion be 
1865-6 your tutor, sute the action to the word, | the word to the action, with 
1866-7 this speciall obseruance, | that you {ore-steppe} <ore-stop> not the modestie of na- 
1867-8 ture: For any | thing so {ore-doone} <ouer-done>, is from the purpose of playing, 
1868-9 whose | end both at the first, and novve, was and is, to holde as twere 
1870-1 the Mirrour vp to nature, to shew vertue her <owne> | feature; scorne her own 
1871-2 Image, and the very age and | body of the time his forme and pressure: 
1872-3 Now this | ouer-done, or come tardie off, though it {makes} <make> the vnskil- 
1874-5 full laugh, cannot but make the iudicious greeue, the | censure of 
1875-6 <the> which one, must in your allowance ore-| weigh a whole Theater of o- 
1876-7 thers. O there be Players | that I haue seene play, and heard others 
1877-8 {praysd} <praise>, and that | highly, not to speake it prophanely, that neither ha- 
1878-80 uing {th'accent} | <the accent> of Christians, nor the gate of Christian, Pagan, {nor} 
1880-1 {man} | <or Norman>, haue so strutted & bellowed, that I haue | thought some of Na- 
1881-2 tures Iornimen had made men, | and not made them well, they imita- 
1882-3 ted humanitie so {abhominably} <ab-| hominably>. 
1884-5  Player. I hope we haue reform'd that indifferently with | vs <, Sir>. 
1886-7  Ham. O reforme it altogether, and let those that | play your clownes 
1887-8 speake no more then is set downe for | them, for there be of them that 
1888-9 wil themselues laugh, | to set on some quantitie of barraine spectators 
1889-91 to laugh | to, though in the meane time, some necessary question | of 
1891-2 the play be then to be considered, that's villanous, and | shewes a most 
1892-3 pittifull ambition in the foole that vses | it: goe make you readie. <Exit Players.> {How} 
1894     <Enter Polonius, Rosincrance, and Guildensterne>...

1909     That no reuenew hast but thy good spirits3.2.58
1910     To feede and clothe thee, why should the poore be flatterd?3.2.
1911     No, let the candied {tongue licke} <tongue, like> absurd pompe,3.2.60

1913     Where thrift may follow {fauning;} <faining?> doost thou heare,3.2.62
1914     Since my deare soule was mistris of {her} <my> choice,3.2.63

1924     In my harts core, I in my hart of hart3.2.73

1926     There is a play to night before the King,3.2.75
1927     One scene of it comes neere the circumstance3.2.76
1928     Which I haue told thee of my fathers death,3.2.77

2060     Most necessary tis that we forget3.2.192
2061     To pay our selues what to our selues is debt,3.2.193
2062     What to our selues in passion we propose,3.2.194
