It is unfortunate that King Hamlet experienced a most untimely death, but we must move on. The queen and I are married and I am the new king. I will use my strength to lead our country and protect us against the mighty Fortinbras
Son, why do you seem so sad?
I don't "seem" sad. I am sad!
Why are you still mourning? It is time for you to get over yourself and be a man.
The King and Queen exit...
This whole situation is disgusting. My father was a great man. He loved his wife and she has betrayed that love with this incestuous marriage, Now, I am forced to live with it.
Horatio, Marcellus, and Barnardo enter...
What?! Where?! Are you sure?!
Sir, I believe that I saw your father last night.
It did not speak, but we know it was him. He was on the platform last night. His beard was grizzled, his face pale, his eyes fixed, and he was dressed in armor
I shall meet you on the platform tonight. I must speak to it! I suspect its appearance is a sign that all is not well.
