Storyboard Text

  • Hamlet, this deed, for thine especial safety, which we do tender as we dearly grieve for that which thou hast done.
  • The bark is ready and the wind at help, th' associates tend, and everything is bent for England.
  • My mother. Father and mother is man and wife, man and wife is one flesh, and so, my mother.—Come, for England!
  • I see a cherub that sees them. But come, for England.  Farewell, dear mother.
  • Good sir, whose powers are these?
  • Sure, he that made us with such large discourse, looking before and after, gave us not that capability...
  • and godlike reason to fust in us unused.  Why yet I live to say “This thing’s to do,” sith I have cause and will and strength and means o do ’t. 
  • Good sir, whose powers are these?
  • How all occasions do inform against me, And spur my dull revenge!  A beast, no more. 
  • Truly to speak, and with no addition, we go to gain a little patch of ground that hath in it no profit but the name.
  • How should I your true love know from another one? By his cockle hat and staff, and his sandal shoon.
  • King Claudius punishes Hamlet for Polonius' death by exiling Hamlet to England.  Then, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are brought from Denmark to Germany to spy on Hamlet, at the king's request.  King Claudius' plan is to deliver his nephew into the hands of the English king for his execution.
  • On Hamlet's journey to England, he observes the troops of Fortinbras on their way to Poland.  Hamlet asks a captain about the Norwegians plan to wage war over the lands of Poland.  Hamlet reflects upon how these Norwegians and Poles were willing to die over these lands, despite their triviality.  These soldiers have left their homes and committed themselves to this deed, yet, Hamlet while he feels he possesses sufficient reason to take action against his own enemy, he is paralyzed. 
  •  A court gentleman reports that Ophelia has become pitiably insane.  Queen Gertrude, agrees to speak with Ophelia at the request of Horatio.  Ophelia enters singing fragments of songs about chaos, death, and unrequited love.  The King and Queen try to speak to her, but Ophelia replies unintelligibly.  Then, Laertes is announced to have organized a mob to break into the castle, to regain revenge for his father's death.  The king placates Laertes, and reassures Laertes the satisfaction of avenging Polonius' death.
