Read the excerpt from Act II of Hamlet.
But I am pigeon-liver'd, and lack gall To make oppression bitter, or ere this I should have fatted all the region kites With this slave's offal. Bloody, bawdy villain!Remorseless, treacherous, lecherous, kindless villain!O! vengeance!Why, what an a** am I! This is most brave That I, the son of a dear father murder'd,Prompted to my revenge by heaven and hell,Must, like a *****, unpack my heart with words,And fall a-cursing, like a very drab,A scullion!
