My Lord. My soldier and I saw an unbelievable sight. We saw a ghost of a man that looked like the King...your late father.
F-father? How can this be? You want me to get revenge on Claudius... but how.
And why? Why would he do this? To you, to our people... To me!
Hamlet, I am your father. Take revenge for my untimely death by the hand of the one who weds your mother.
Now... my DEAR Brother. My King, you die by an unknown pioson in your ear.
STOP THIS AT ONCE! THIS PLAY ENDS NOW! TURN ON THE LIGHTS!..please.
The setting is Elsinore Castle, in DenmarkThe former King of Demark has died, and a group of soldiers tell his son, PrinceHamlet, that they believe they saw his ghost.
Whose there?... If you wont come out I'll make you! HA!
You disgust me! Sleeping with you dead husband's Brother...
Ah! I've been hit. I Polonius am dying. *Plegh*
Hamlet feels that he must seek revenge on his father’s behalf. However, he struggles with the authenticity of the “ghost” and is indecisive about his course of action.
It seems that Claudius has asked the King of England to kill me.
Throughout the rising action, Hamlet tries to figure out if Claudius truly killed his father. When he hears a group of actors are coming, he requests that they act out a play that depicts a king being poisoned in the ear. This mimics the way the ghost claims he was killed.
I'll miss you my friend... Hamlet.
Hamlet speaks to his mother about how disgusted he is that she is married to Claudius. Hamlet accidentally kills Polonius and is banished to England.
Claudius includes a letter to the King of England that orders Hamlet’s execution. Hamlet escapes and comes back to Denmark. Ophelia, crushed by Hamlet’s apparent disdain and the death of the father, has drowned herself.
It'll take more than that. I'll just replace it with another letter. I WILL get my revenge!
Oh Hamlet... You're so cruel. Oh Father... I miss you so. Goodbye!
