Storyboard Description


Storyboard Text

  • Hamartia
  • Hamlet's hamartia is his indecisiveness when it comes to making important decisions. After seeing the ghost of his father, Hamlet can not make up his mind as to what he will do to get revenge.
  • To be or not to be—that is the question...
  • Peripeteia
  • The turning point occurs when Hamlet sees Claudius praying for forgiveness. Hamlet decides not to kill him because that would send Claudius to heaven. This is a reversal of circumstances.
  • Now I might do it, now he is-a praying, and now I'll do it ... I, his sole son, do this same villain send to heaven.
  • Anagnorisis
  • Hamlet comes to a realization when Claudius reacts to the poisoning scene in Hamlet's "Mouse Trap" play. He confirms his suspicion of Claudius murdering King Hamlet through Claudius' reaction and he then consults with Horatio.
  • O Good Horatio, I’ll take the ghost’s word for a thousand pound. Didst perceive?
  • Nemesis
  • Hamlet is a nemesis to Claudius because Hamlet ends up killing him after Claudius murdered Hamlet's father and married Hamlet's mother, Gertrude. Claudius is punished for his evil actions in the end.
  • Here, thou incestuous, murd'rous, damnèd Dane, Drink off this potion. Is (thy union) here?
  • Catharsis
  • Catharsis takes place when Hamlet kills Claudius after Claudius is exposed as the person that tried to set up Hamlet's death and was ultimately the cause of all of the deaths. This provides emotional relief as the antagonist, Claudius, receives justice from Hamlet.
  • The treacherous instrument is in thy hand ... thy mother's poisoned. I can no more. The King, the King's to blame.
  • The End
