God afternoon, dear Shakespeare lovers! I have a mystery for you all to solve today. Name the play and the two characters who had this conversation:
Your noble son is mad:
Mad call I it, for to define true madness,
What is’t but to be nothing else but mad?
But let that go.
More matter with less art.
Madam, I swear I use no art at all
That he’s mad, ’tis true, ’tis true ’tis pity,
And pity ’tis ’tis true—a foolish figure,
But farewell it, for I will use no art.
If you need a hint, take a look at our 2012/2013 Season Announcement here!
Polonius and Gertrude!
