Hamlet - Act I Scene 2
Oh, that this too, too sullied flesh would melt...But two months dead - nay, not so much, not two...frailty thy name is woman!...a beast that wants discourse would have mourned longer!...but break, my heart, for I must hold my tongue.
Hamlet - Act II Scene 2
...Recently, though I don't know why, I've lost all sense of fun...the whole world feels sterile and empty...it's nothing more to me than disease-filled air...what are we but dust?
Hamlet - Act III Scene 2
...It's a metaphor. This play is about a murder committed in Vienna...You and I have free souls,so it doesn't concern us. Let the guilty wince. We can watch without being bothered.
This soliloquy is important because it is where Hamlet verifies his distaste for his mother remarrying so quickly and to her husband's brother, Claudius. It shows how upset Hamlet is, but does not wish to make his feelings known.
This is important because this is when Hamlet essentially confronts Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. He wants them to know his distaste for life and possibly allude to the fact it is due to Gertrude's hasty marriage. He knows that they were sent for by Claudius in order to determine why Hamlet was "going crazy", when it is all a ploy for Hamlet to expose Claudius.
This quote occurs when the play that exposes Claudius is being showed. Hamlet says to them that because none of them are guilty of anything, they should be able to watch in peace, however Hamlet knows that Claudius is guilty. This quote is when Claudius knows that Hamlet knows the truth behind Old Hamlet's death.
