Storyboard Text

  • Is the King scared of a play? HA HA HA
  • "Now might I do it pat. Now he is a-praying. And now I’ll do ’t. And so he goes to heaven. And so am I revenged.—That would be scanned. A villain kills my father, and, for that, I, his sole son, do this same villain send To heaven." (Act III, Scene III)
  • "A bloody deed? Almost as bad, good mother, As kill a king and marry with his brother." (Act III, Scene IV)
  • "Oh, what a rash and bloody deed is this!" (Act III, Scene IV)
  • Hamlet's plan to show King Claudius a play exactly like the way Claudius killed King Hamlet went exactly as he planned. King Claudius reaction proved the Claudius kill his father.
  • "A man may fish with the worm that hath eat of a king, and eat of the fish that hath fed of that worm." (Act IV, Scene III)
  • "What dost you mean by this?" (Scene IV, Scene III)
  • Hamlet was very close to killing King Cladius but didn't because if he did, Claudius would go straight to heaven. This is important to Hamlet's character development because readers see that his madness will cause him to kill.
  • "Say you? Nay, pray you, mark. (sings)  He is dead and gone, lady,   He is dead and gone,  At his head a grass-green turf,   At his heels a stone. Oh, ho!" (Act IV, Scene V)
  • Poor Ophelia, she has gone mad too. Just like Hamlet.
  • Hamlet stabs and kills Polonius who is hiding behind the curtain. Hamlet might have thought that Polonius was actually King Claudius. This is Hamlet's first kill and and the kill might cause more mental problems for Hamlet. Hamlet also interacts with his mother very abrasively, he is mad at her for her marriage with Claudius.
  • "I will do ’t. And for that purpose I’ll anoint my sword. I bought an unction of a mountebank, So mortal that, but dip a knife in it, Where it draws blood no cataplasm so rare, Collected from all simples that have virtue" (Act IV, Scene VII)
  • The theme of death is very evident here. When King Claudius is asking where Polonius body is, Hamlet reply saying a King and a peasant are on the same society level after death, so why does it matter.
  • "Nothing but to show you how a king may go a progress through the guts of a beggar." (Act IV, Scene III)
  • Ophelia has gone mad after the death of her father Polonius and Hamlet rejecting her love. Ophelia is another example of the side effects of Hamlet's madness.
  • King Claudius and Laertes plan to dip a sword in poison and scratch Hamlet with it for revenge of Polonius death. This is important to Hamlet's character development because Hamlet does not suspect Laertes trying to kill him.
