Storyboard Text

  • ACT 3. Scene 3
  • Now I might do it, now he is a-praying, and now I'll do't.
  • Act 3. Scene 4
  • What wilt thou do? Thou will not murder me? Help, ho!
  • Come, come, and sit you down...where you may see the inmost part of you.
  • Act 3. Scene 4
  • A bloody deed-almost as bad, good mother, as kill a king and marry with his brother.
  • O, what a rash and bloody deed this is!
  • As Claudius is vainly attempting to pray about his guilt, Hamlet comes up behind him. He reflects that he has the perfect opportunity to kill his uncle, but realizes Claudius is in act of prayer which means he would go to heaven. Hamlet resolves to kill him later when he is in a sinful act. He continues on to his mothers chamber.
  • In the chamber, Polonius hides himself behind one of Gertrude’s curtains. Hamlet enters. Gertrude attempts to be firm, but Hamlet responds saying that she has sinned in marrying her husband’s brother. He tells his mother to not to get up because he will reveal her inmost part. Gertrude thinks that Hamlet may attempt to murder her and cries for help.
  • Polonius, feeling threatened, also cries out for help. Hamlet thinks that the hidden voice belongs to Claudius. He stabs Polonius through the curtain, killing him. When he sees that he has killed Polonius, Hamlet calls him an intruding fool and quickly forgets about his death. He sits his mother down, comparing the virtue of his father and uncle.
