Sonnet 40.

O André publicou o primeiro vídeo, Shakespeare por Harriet Walter, e eu depois descobri que o Rufus tinha colaborado com o Bob Wilson num espetáculo em torno dos sonetos do bardo. No segundo vídeo estão o 40, o 143 e 0 102. No fim, o texto do 40.




Take all my loves, my love, yea, take them all;
What hast thou then more than thou hadst before?
No love, my love, that thou mayst true love call;
All mine was thine before thou hadst this more.
Then if for my love thou my love receivest,
I cannot blame thee for my love thou usest;
But yet be blamed, if thou thyself deceivest
By wilful taste of what thyself refusest.
I do forgive thy robbery, gentle thief,
Although thou steal thee all my poverty;
And yet, love knows, it is a greater grief
To bear love's wrong than hate's known injury.
   Lascivious grace, in whom all ill well shows,
   Kill me with spites; yet we must not be foes.
