Storyboard Text

  • Hamlet has been following the ghost that resembles King Hamlet and wants to know why he wanted him to follow.
  • Where wilt thou lead me? Speak, I’ll go no further. (I.iv.1)
  • Listen to me.
  • The ghost warns Hamlet that what happened to him and what he is about to tell him will require revenge. This is where the theme of how revenge  can consume your mind originates.
  •  Speak. I am bound to hear. (I.iv.7)
  • So art thou to revenge when thou shalt hear. (I.iv.8)
  • The ghost reveals that he is actually Hamlets father and that he was actually murdered. Hamlet is eager to find out who it was so he can avenge his father.
  • Murder? Tell me about it so I can seek revenge right away!
  • I am thy father’s spirit, revenge his foul and most unnatural murder. (I.iv.9\25)
  • O my prophetic soul! My uncle?(I.iv.41)
  • The ghost tells Hamlet that he was murdered by his uncle who now takes his place as king and wife to Gertrude. Hamlet has been suspecting this but now he knows for sure who to kill to seek revenge for his father.
  • The man that murdered me is the same one that now sits in my thrown.
  • Yes, not only did he streal my thrown, he stole my wife and my life!
  • The ghost tells Hamlet to avenge him and Hamlet promises that revenge will be the only thing he thins about. This is where the theme of revenge consuming your mind becomes more clear.
  • I’ll wipe away all trivial fond records, all saws of books, all forms, all pressures past that youth and observation copied there, and thy commandment all alone shall live within the book and volume of my brain,(I.iv.100-4)

  • Personal Thoughts: I think that this was one of the most important scenes because this is where the conflict begins. Hamlet is given the task that ultimately leads to his death in the play. We start to see the first signs of mental disturbance of Hamlet, which is also a contribute to his downfall.
