  • …Where, for this many hundred years, the bones Of all my buried ancestors are pack’d; Where bloody Tybalt, yet but green in earth, Lies festering in his shroud; where, as they say, At some hours in the night spirits resort;— Alack, alack, is it not like that I, So early waking,—what with loathsome smells, And shrieks like mandrakes torn out of the earth, That living mortals, hearing them, run mad;— O, if I wake, shall I not be distraught, Environed with all these hideous fears?
