Hamlet is very upset because of his fathers death. In addition to the death of his dad, his own mom chose to marry his uncle, not even two months after. He feels as if he wants to kill himself, but refuses to because of his morals. Instead he just vents.
The king and the queen have realized Hamlet's bad attitude. They want to know what is wrong with him, so they send his old friends Rosencrantz and Guildenstern to find out whats wrong with him. Of course Hamlet has an idea why they are there, so he wants them to tell him the truth.
Hamlet wanted to see if Claudius would get upset when the brother killed his brother in the play to take the throne. Which was exactly what Claudius did. Henceforth, Claudius got upset and stopped the play, making Hamlet correct.
