Storyboard Text

  • Hamartia
  • "To be, or not to be, that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles, and by opposing end them . To die, to sleep-"
  • Hubris
  • "Forgive me my foul muder? That cannot be, since I am still possessed of those effects for which I did the murder- My crown, mine ambition, and my queen."
  • "Yet what can it when one can not repent? O Wretched state! O bosom black as death! O liméd soul, that struggling to be free art more engaged! Help, angels! Make assay."
  • "O me, what hast thou done?"
  • Peripetia
  • "O, what a rash and bloody deed is this!"
  • "As kill a king?"
  • "A bloody deed? Almost as bad, good mother, as kill a king and marry with his brother."
  • Nay,I know not. Is it the King?"
  • "O, I am slain!"
  • I chose one of Hamlets' most famous soliloquy's for Hamartia. I chose this quote because it shows Hamlets tragic flaw. Hamlets tragic flaw was his indecisiveness because he had trouble deciding on what he should always do. He always had second thoughts and this is what would lead the pathway to many of the deaths in the play.
  • Agagnorisis
  • "The serpent that did sting thy father's life now wears his crown"
  • "Oh my prophetic soul! My uncle!"
  • I chose this soliloquy from Claudius as a example for hubris. In his soliloquy Claudius is praying asking for forgiveness for what he did. Except for the fact that he says that he really is not sorry. This shows that his pride meant more to him than anything else and that he really was a greedy person.
  • Nemesis
  • "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark"
  • I chose this scene in the play when Hamlet kills Polonius as an example for peripita. I chose this scene because even though Polonius was one of the good guys in the play he was still killed. He was in the room at the time of Gertrude and Hamlets conversation and happened to make a noise while Hamlet and Gertrude were fighting. Hamlet thought he was Claudius and stabbed through the curtain without even looking to see who is actually was. This was Polonius's reversal of fortune.
  • Catharsis
  • I chose this scene between Hamlet and his fathers' ghost to represent agagnorisis. I chose this scene because it is the moment when Hamlet figures out that Claudius was the one who killed his father. This was a very big discovery in the play.
  • I chose this quote which was spoken by Marcellus in Act one, scene four, line 90. I chose this quote because it shows that something bad is a happening and is foreshadowing the evil that is to come. Although they do not know what is going on, they know something is happening and there is no way to stop it.
  • I chose the scene where Laertes and Hamlet fight as the example for Catharsis because of what the audience already know. The audience knows that this is not a fair fight because Laertes and Claudius are planning to cheat so that they can kill Hamlet. The feel bad for him beacause they know he really does not stand a chance against Laertes.
  • "You mock me, Sir"
  • "I'll be your foil, Laertes. In mine ignorance your skill shall, like a star i' th' darkest night, stick fiery off indeed "
