Hamlet Question?

Gottagetthrough posted 9/16/2019 08:08 AM

My 10th grader was arguing with me today- said Woe be me is in Hamlet. I said Id never heard of that, its Woe is me

Tried google- never found woe be me.

She is insistent that she is right.

Anyone know if Woe be me is used in Hamlet.... or in any place else? I think shes just arguing for the sake of arguing But if its actually a saying Id like to know.

O, what a noble mind is here o'erthrown!
The courtier's, soldier's, scholar's, eye, tongue, sword;
The expectancy and rose of the fair state,
The glass of fashion and the mould of form,
The observed of all observers, quite, quite down!
And I, of ladies most deject and wretched,
That suck'd the honey of his music vows,
Now see that noble and most sovereign reason,
Like sweet bells jangled, out of tune and harsh;
That unmatch'd form and feature of blown youth
Blasted with ecstasy: O, woe is me,
To have seen what I have seen, see what I see!
