Storyboard Text

  • Claudius and Polonius spy on Hamlet and Ophelia. He taunts her by telling her he loved her and then denying it. He orders her to a nunnery and is extremely cold and distant to her.
  • The play designed to draw out a guilty conscious from Claudius seems to have worked when Claudius orders for lights and stomps out. Hamlet is delighted because now he has confirmation and concrete justification to avenge his father's death.
  • Thus, Hamlet decides to put up an antic disposition and feign madness which strategically would allow him to snoop around and act more peculiarly without being questioned.
  • Rosencrantz and Guildenstern - close friends of Hamlet - are persuaded by Claudius and Gertrude to spy on Hamlet to see the root or truth behind his madness in exchange for a royal reward.
  • Polonius reads out a personal letter sent from Hamlet to Ophelia hypothesising that it was Ophelia's rejection of Hamlet that led to his madness.
  • Hamlet, having seen the play acting out the story of Pyrrhus, cries out bloody revenge and concocts a plan to catch Claudius' guilt.
