Storyboard Text

  • I'll silence me even here. 
  • Hamlet, thou hast thy father much offended. 
  • Mother, you have my father much offended. 
  • What wilt thou do? Thou wilt not murder me. Help, help, ho!
  • What, ho? Help, help, help!
  • You go not till I set you up a glass Where you may see the inmost part of you.
  • A bloody deed? Almost as bad, good mother, As kill a king and marry with his brother. 
  • Polonius hides behind a curtain to overhear the conversation of Gertrude and Hamlet. Hamlet comes in and begins to express his anger towards his mother
  • Do not forget. This visitation Is but to whet thy almost blunted purpose. But look, amazement on thy mother sits.
  • To  whom do you speak this?
  • Do not look upon me, Lest with this piteous action you convert My stern effects. Then what I have to do Will want true color--- tears perchance for blood.
  • Hamlet uses a mirror and pictures of Old Hamlet and Claudius to make Gertrude realizes the superiority between the two men and what have she done to betray the great Old Hamlet.   
  • Oh Hamlet, you've broken my heart in two!
  • Oh, throw away the worser part of it, And live the purer with the other hald. Good night---but go not to mine uncle's bed. 
  • Hamlet has mistaken Polonius as Claudius behind the tapestry and stabbed through Polonius's body. Gertrue is shocked by Hamlet's action. 
  • There’s letters sealed, and my two schoolfellows, Whom I will trust as I will adders fanged... Goodnight mother.
  • The ghost appears in the room but only Hamlet can see it. Thus Gertrude thinks Hamlet is madder than ever. All the speech Hamlet gives unlike usual personality and Gertrude believes the ghost is Hamlet's imagination. The ghost's main appearance is to remind Hamlet to take well care of Gertrude. 
  • Hamlet has asked Gertrude not to go to Claudius's room again and should not make more sins of betraying Old Hamlet. 
  • Hamlet has asked Gertrude to stop confronting his madness to Claudius. He then talks about his upcoming trip to England with the two friends he once trusted. At last, Hamlet bids Gertrude good night and drags Polonius's body on his way out.
