So shall I, love; and so, I pray, be you: 11. without all, without any or beyond all. 13. scotch'd, cut with shallow incisions, gashed. 14. She '11 close, i. e., the wounds will heal, poor, feeble. 16. the frame of things disjoint, 'the (orderly) universe fall to pieces.' both the worlds suffer, heaven and earth perish. 21. on. The ' torture of the mind' is compared to a rack on which the mind lies in ecstasy, i. e., beside itself with the frenzy of pain. 23. fitful, 'full of paroxyms' (Schmidt), 'intermittent' (Clarendon). 25. "Malice domestic, such as the treason of Macdonwald; foreign levy, such as the invasion of Sweno" (Clarendon). 27. sleek o'er, smooth. 18. these terrible dreams. "Those who have seen Miss Helen Faueit play Lady Macbeth will remember how she shuddered at the mention of the ' terrible dreams, ' with which she too was shaken. The sleep-walking scene was doubtless in the poet's mind already."--Clarendon.

Macbeth. There's comfort yet; they are assailable; Then be thou jocund: ere the bat hath flown 40 His cloister'd flight; ere to black Hecate's summons The shard-borne beetle with his drowsy hums Hath rung night's yawning peal, there shall be done A deed of dreadful note.
