SCENE III. Juliet's chamber.

Enter JULIET and Nurse

JULIET

Ay, those attires are best: but, gentle nurse,
I pray thee, leave me to my self to-night,
For I have need of many orisons
To move the heavens to smile upon my state,
Which, well thou know'st, is cross, and full of sin.

Enter LADY CAPULET

LADY CAPULET

What, are you busy, ho? need you my help?

JULIET

No, madam; we have cull'd such necessaries
As are behoveful for our state to-morrow:
So please you, let me now be left alone,
And let the nurse this night sit up with you;
For, I am sure, you have your hands full all,
In this so sudden business.

LADY CAPULET

Good night:
Get thee to bed, and rest; for thou hast need.

Exeunt LADY CAPULET and Nurse

JULIET

Farewell! God knows when we shall meet again.
I have a faint cold fear thrills through my veins,
That almost freezes up the heat of life:
I'll call them back again to comfort me:
Nurse! What should she do here?
My dismal scene I needs must act alone.
Come, vial.
What if this mixture do not work at all?
Shall I be married then to-morrow morning?
No, no: this shall forbid it: lie thou there.

Laying down her dagger

What if it be a poison, which the friar
Subtly hath minister'd to have me dead,
Lest in this marriage he should be dishonour'd,
Because he married me before to Romeo?
I fear it is: and yet, methinks, it should not,
For he hath still been tried a holy man.
How if, when I am laid into the tomb,
I wake before the time that Romeo
Come to redeem me? there's a fearful point!
Shall I not, then, be stifled in the vault,
To whose foul mouth no healthsome air breathes in,
And there die strangled ere my Romeo comes?
Or, if I live, is it not very like,
The horrible conceit of death and night,
Together with the terror of the place,--
As in a vault, an ancient receptacle,
Where, for these many hundred years, the bones
Of all my buried ancestors are packed:
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?
And madly play with my forefather's joints?
And pluck the mangled Tybalt from his shroud?
And, in this rage, with some great kinsman's bone,
As with a club, dash out my desperate brains?
O, look! methinks I see my cousin's ghost
Seeking out Romeo, that did spit his body
Upon a rapier's point: stay, Tybalt, stay!
Romeo, I come! this do I drink to thee.

She falls upon her bed, within the curtains

朱丽叶及乳媪上。

朱丽叶嗯,那些衣服都很好。可是,好奶妈,今天晚上请你不用陪我,因为我还要念许多祷告,求上天宥恕我过去的罪恶,默佑我将来的幸福。

凯普莱特夫人上。

凯普莱特夫人啊!你正在忙着吗?要不要我帮你?

朱丽叶不,母亲!我们已经选择好了明天需用的一切,所以现在请您让我一个人在这儿吧;让奶妈今天晚上陪着您不睡,因为我相信这次事情办得太匆促了,您一定忙得不可开交。

凯普莱特夫人晚安!早点睡觉,你应该好好休息休息。(凯普莱特夫人及乳媪下。)

朱丽叶再会!上帝知道我们将在什么时候相见。我觉得仿佛有一阵寒颤刺激着我的血液,简直要把生命的热流冻结起来似的;待我叫她们回来安慰安慰我。奶妈!——要她到这儿来干么?这凄惨的场面必须让我一个人扮演。来,药瓶。要是这药水不发生效力呢?那么我明天早上就必须结婚吗?不,不,这把刀会阻止我;你躺在那儿吧。(将匕首置枕边)也许这瓶里是毒药,那神父因为已经替我和罗密欧证婚,现在我再跟别人结婚,恐怕损害他的名誉,所以有意骗我服下去毒死我;我怕也许会有这样的事;可是他一向是众所公认的道高德重的人,我想大概不致于;我不能抱着这样卑劣的思想。要是我在坟墓里醒了过来,罗密欧还没有到来把我救出去呢?这倒是很可怕的一点!那时我不是要在终年透不进一丝新鲜空气的地窟里活活闷死,等不到我的罗密欧到来吗?即使不闷死,那死亡和长夜的恐怖,那古墓中阴森的气象,几百年来,我祖先的尸骨都堆积在那里,入土未久的提伯尔特蒙着他的殓衾,正在那里腐烂;人家说,一到晚上,鬼魂便会归返他们的墓穴;唉!唉!要是我太早醒来,这些恶臭的气味,这些使人听了会发疯的凄厉的叫声;啊!要是我醒来,周围都是这种吓人的东西,我不会心神迷乱,疯狂地抚弄着我的祖宗的骨胳,把肢体溃烂的提伯尔特拖出了他的殓衾吗?在这样疯狂的状态中,我不会拾起一根老祖宗的骨头来,当作一根棍子,打破我的发昏的头颅吗?啊,瞧!那不是提伯尔特的鬼魂,正在那里追赶罗密欧,报复他的一剑之仇吗?等一等,提伯尔特,等一等!罗密欧,我来了!我为你干了这一杯!(倒在幕内的床上。)
