本集内容

莎士比亚的作品中很多人物都会隐藏自己的真实情感,而莎士比亚笔下最令人憎恶的伊雅戈则隐藏了他想除掉周围所有人的计划。尽管如此,他却口是心非地 说要“把自己的心放到袖子上” wear his heart upon his sleeve,也就是毫不隐藏自己的感情或情绪。如今,这个表达多用来哪些语境中呢?

Narrator
It was a sunny day. William Shakespeare's daughter and Bess the barmaid are at the fair.

Daughter
Lalalalala…

Bess
You're very happy today aren't you my duck?

Daughter
Oh Bess, I'm in love.

Bess
You're not still after that Robert Harley are you?

Daughter
Nooooo! It's Henry Bull. He's wonderful: handsome and brave… and he loves me too… but Bess, father mustn't find out. Henry hasn't got any money. Father wouldn't approve.

Bess
Well my duck, you need to hide your feelings better then! You're wearing your heart upon your sleeve; the whole world can see how you feel! Oh! Hello Mr Will…

Daughter
Father!

Will
Good afternoon Bess; Daughter… and what are you two gossiping about? Who's wearing their heart upon their sleeve?

Bess
We were …err… discussing that evil Iago, in your play Othello. He wears his heart upon his sleeve, doesn't he Mr Will?

Will
Ah, yes, Othello, my tragedy. A very good topic for discussion. Iago says: I will wear my heart upon my sleeve

Robert Harley as Iago
I will wear my heart upon my sleeve
For daws to peck at. I am not what I am.

Will
But, even though Iago talks about wearing his heart on his sleeve he doesn't actually intend to do it. Iago never reveals his true feelings, except perhaps to the audience, and even they cannot fully trust him!

Bess
Well, showing your true feelings certainly can lead to trouble.

Daughter
What feelings does Iago hide, father? Is he in love?

Will
No: quite the opposite. Iago pretends to be loyal to Othello so that he can destroy him! That's why he says: I am not what I am.

Narrator
We'll leave them there for now. Many of Shakespeare's characters conceal their true feelings. Some hide their love, while Iago, Shakespeare's most hateful villain, hides his plans to destroy everyone around him. Nowadays, the phrase to wear your heart upon - or on - your sleeve still means: to make your feelings and emotions obvious, even if it makes you vulnerable. In a 2015 interview, US actress Kristen Stewart, star of the Twilight movies, said:

Clip 1
I wear my heart on my sleeve. If I'm in a mood, my mood shows.

Narrator
It's often used to talk about love and romance.

Clip 2
When I told him I loved him, he broke up with me. I'll never wear my heart on my sleeve again.

Will
Now, dear daughter, who is this young man who's made you so cheerful?

Daughter
Oh… errr… nobody…

Will
Nobody…?

Bess
Didn't I tell you not to wear your heart on your sleeve?!

Daughter
Oh dear. To wear, or not to wear: that is the question…
