I am thy father’s spirit, Doomed for a certain term to walk the night And for the day confined to fast in fires...
Hamlet Act 3 Scene 4
Thou wretched, rash, intruding fool, farewell. I took thee for thy better. Take thy fortune...Leave wringing of your hands. Peace. Sit you down
Such an act that blurs the grace and blush of modesty...Heaven’s face doth glow O'er this solidity and compound mass...Is thought-sick at the act.
What have I done, that thou darest wag thy tongue In noise so rude against me?
I think this scene is important because it sets up the side of hamlet that rises his supspison. In this scene Claudius is talking to hamlet and Hamlet says to himself that there are to many family ties for him. Its when he says that, that you can tell that he isn't approving of his mother marrying his uncle so quickly after his father died. This is showing the beginning of his suspicion toward Claudius.
When Hamlet first talks to the the ghost he finds out he is Old Hamlet, his father. This is important to Hamlets story because it is the beginning of his story and is when he learns the backstory of Old Hamlet's last day. It is also when Hamlet finds out that his Uncle was the reason for Old Hamlets death and not a snake. This sets up Hamlets mind to conjure up his plan of revenge against Claudius. The one thing that Hamlet asks Hamlet for is to tell no one of his knowledge of this meeting.
This scene is a very important scene in Hamlets story because of the amount of things that happen. This is the scene where Hamlet is confronting his mother about her marriage to Claudius and talks down to her. As that is happening she thinks Hamlet is about to attack herald cries for help; at that time Polonius also cries for help and is stabbed by Hamlet, who was thought to have been stabbing Claudius. This part is important because it is after Hamlet had already had an opportunity to slay Claudius while he was praying but decides not to in thought of better opportunity. This scene marks big change for Hamlet as you can tell with his reaction to Polonius death.
