Storyboard Text

  • Hamlet is told by his father's ghost that he was killed by his uncle, who now has the throne! Hamlet doesn't know who to believe
  • "O my prophetic soul! My Uncle!"
  • The serpent that did sting thy father's life now wears his crown
  • Hamlet starts to doubt his own existence from what is happening
  • "To be, or not to be: that is the question" Whether to suffer from events or fight against them. We will all die and travel to a place where no traveler has ever returned.
  • Hamlet formulates a plan where a group of play writers will perform a play will be changed so that it follows the events of the killing told by the ghost
  • "Now that i am alone [...] in a fiction, in a dream of passion, Could force his soul so to his own conceit" I can see his reaction upon and face and tell whether the ghost was telling the truth or not
  • Hamlet has a chance to kill Claudius but doesn't because Claudius is praying, he would go to heaven and this isn't the revenge Hamlet wants
  • Words without thoughts never to heaven go. (He didn't mean anything)
  • "And now I'll do't. And so he goes to heaven; and so am i revenged" But is it revenged when he has safe passage?
  • No! "Up, sword;" when he is asleep and other sins so "that his soul may be as damn'd and black as hell, whereto it goes."
  • Hamlet fins Yorick's skull from a newly dug grave and he recites the carbon cycle, relating it to death. He then learns this grave is for Ophelia, Ophelia's brother Laertes challenges Hamlet to a duel
  • "Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him" He was a great nanny. "Why may not imagination trace the noble dust of Alexander" or "Imperious Caesar" filling up holes or making up walls
  • I challenge thee!
  • Claudius and Laertes try to kill Hamlet with poisoned wine and swords. Claudius and Queen Gertrude are poisoned by the wine and Laertes and Hamlet are killed by the swords as they are illegal fencing instruments
  • O, I die, Horatio, Horatio; The potent poison quite o'er-crows my spirit
