The audience is made aware of his gloominess and lack of joy from recent events. This scene is particularly important because it establishes the tone of the play and reveals much about Hamlet’s initial personality and demeanour.
  • Hamlet Encounters Rosencrantz and Gildenstern
  • This is Hamlet’s first soliloquy. It reveals Hamlet’s extreme anguish and pain at his life in its current state. He speaks about his father’s death and the marriage of Gertrude and Claudius, which he names an incestuous affair. He expresses his grief and wishes that he could commit suicide, but is unable to do so due to it being a mortal sin. He also expresses his love for his father, which indicates to the audience that the Old Hamlet was a good person.
  • Hamlet Makes A Play
  • This scene is Hamlet’s first encounter with his father’s reincarnation. It is revealed by the ghost of his father that he was murdered from poison by none other than his brother, Claudius. Hamlet vows to avenge his father’s death and thus begins the conflict of the play.
  • Hamlet Talks Of Revenge
  • "Oh what a rogue and peasant slave am I"
  • In this scene, Hamlet meets with his university colleagues, Rosencrantz and Gildenstern, who he hasn’t seen for a long time. He soon suspects that his Mother and Uncle are paying them to spy on him. His suspicions are later confirmed and he realizes that his “friends” are also traitors.
  • A traveling troupe of actors comes to Edinburgh to which Hamlet asks the lead actor to perform a speech of the death of King Troy and his wife’s grief. The actor gets so into the act that he begins to cry. This shakes Hamlet, which he later soliloquizes about.
  • *Clap Clap
  • Bravo!
  • The Mousetrap
  • Here, Hamlet talks to himself in a soliloquy about how the actor can cry over a fake death, and he can’t bring himself to revenge his father’s actual death. .” This scene reveals Hamlet’s ulterior motive to discover if his uncle really did murder his father. Hamlet plans to see if his uncle is made uneasy by the plays’ contents where an actor is poisoned in the ear, the same tactic used to kill Hamlet Sr.
