Hamlet Missing Piece 3

Dear Journal,“How strange or odd soe’er I bear myself.” I have seen “thy father's spirit.” I must “Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder.” “Yea, from the table of my memory I'll wipe away all trivial fond records, All saws of books, all forms, all pressures past That youth and observation copied there, And thy commandment all alone shall live Within the book and volume of my brain, Unmix'd with baser matter.” But who is this depressed, man who writes in my journal? “What is he whose grief Bears such an emphasis? whose phrase of sorrow Conjures the wand'ring stars, and makes them stand Like wonder-wounded hearers?” You, who writes dejectedly in this journal: “It shows a will most incorrect to heaven, A heart unfortified, a mind impatient, An understanding simple and unschool'd; For what we know must be, and is as common As any the most vulgar thing to sense, Why should we in our peevish opposition Take it to heart? Fie! 'tis a fault to heaven, A fault against the dead, a fault to nature,To reason most absurd, whose common theme Is death of fathers, and who still hath cried, From the first corse till he that died to-day, 'This must be so’.” My “thoughts of love... sweep to revenge” only. “A villain kills my father; and for that, I, his sole son, do this same villain send To heaven” with no guilt.
