Storyboard Text

  • Nemesis
  • O, that this too too sullied flesh would melt, Thaw and resolve itself into a dew, Or that the Everlasting had not fixed His canon 'gainst self-slaughter!
  • Hubris
  • The play is the thing wherein I'll catch the conscience of the king!
  • Hamartia
  • Now might I do it pat. Now he is a-praying. And now I’ll do ’t. And so he goes to heaven. And so am I revenged.
  • For a majority of the play all Hamlet wants is to die, his father's death too much for him to handle. That fate is one he cannot shake in the end, for it eventually does come, even when he succeeds in getting the revenge he desires against Claudius.
  • Anagnorisis
  • How all occasions do inform against me and spur my dull revenge!
  • Hamlet displays pride by believing that his own plan will prove the guilt of Claudius. He is certain he can obtain evidence this way, despite the ghost's prior claims of Claudius killing him. Hamlet seems to think himself better than others by default.
  • Peripeteia
  • A sword unbated, and in pass a practice requite him for your father.
  • I will do't.
  • Hamlet's fatal flaw, the one that ultimately ensures his demise, is his inability to act even when he is given ample opportunity. He finds Claudius in vulnerable situations where he could strike him down, but he does not, making the excuse that his uncle must be in the act of sinning.
  • Catharsis
  • Exchange forgiveness with me, noble Hamlet. Mine and my father’s death come not upon thee, nor thine on me.
  • Hamlet makes a vital discovery when he sees Fortinbras and his forces preparing to risk their lives in order to gain land. He realizes he has done nothing when he has the motive for revenge while these soldiers are ready to sacrifice their lives just because it is their duty.
  • A reversal of fortune on Hamlet's part occurs when Claudius plots of Hamlet's demise with Laertes, switching the plot to kill the king into one where it ends in Hamlet's own death. At the final fight, though Claudius is killed, Hamlet does not live.
  • Laertes forgives Hamlet for killing his father and suggests they harbor no ill feelings towards each other, moments away from inevitable death, causing the audience to feel some sympathy for Hamlet, who has gone through so much only to be left with death in the end.
