Storyboard Text

  • "Rightly to be great  Is not to stir without great argument, But greatly to find quarrel in a straw  When honour's at the stake. How stand I then,  That have a father kill'd, a mother stain'd,  Excitements of my reason and my blood,  And let all sleep? while, to my shame, I see The imminent death of twenty thousand men,  That, for a fantasy and trick of fame,  Go to their Graves like beds, fight for a plot  Whereon the number cannot try the cause, Which is not tomb enough and continent To hide the slain? O, from this time forth,  My thoughts be bloody, or be nothing worth!"
  • "What is the cause, Laertes, That they rebellion looks so giant-like? Let him go, Gertrude; do not fear our person: There's such Divinity doth hedge a king, That treason can but peep to what it would, Acts little of his will. Tell me Laertes, Why would thought art thus incensed. Speak man." (97-101)
  • "O thou vile king, GIve me my father!" (91-92)
  • "But not by him." (105)
  • "Dead." (104)
  • "Let him demand his fill." (106)
  • "How came he dead? I'll be revenged Most thoroughly for my father. (104,109-110)
  • "Where is my father?" (103)
  • "None but his enemies." (119) 
  • " Will you know them then?" (120) 
  • "To his good friends thus wide I'll open my arms; And like the kind-life rendering pelican, Repast them with my blood." (121-123)
  • "Why now you speak Like a good child and true gentleman, That I am guiltless of your father's death." (123-125)
  •    "If you desire to know the certainty Of your dear father's death, isn't write in your revenge, That swoopstake, you will draw both friend and foe, Winner and loser?" (114-119)
  • "So you shall; And where the offence is let the great axe fall. I pray you, go with me." (4th)
  • "Do you see this, O God?" (1st)
  • " Let this be so, His means for death, his obscure funeral-- No trophy, sword, nor hatchment O'er his bones. No Noble rite nor formal ostentation-- Cry to be heard, as 'twere from heaven to earth, that I must call't in question. " (3rd)
  • "Laertes, I must commune with your grief, Or you deny me right. Go but apart, Make choice of whom your wisest friends you will. And they shall hear and judge 'twixt you and me: If by direct or by collateral hand They find us touch'd, we will our kingdom give, Our Crown, our life, and all that we can ours, To you in satisfaction; but if not, Be you content to lend your patience to us, And we shall jointly labour with your soul To give it due content." (2nd)
  • Overall the final scenes of act four, Hamlet is confessing to the murder of Polonius while attempting to keep his disguise of insanity at the front of people's minds. Hamlet is then banished to England as a tribute/emissary, to rid Denmark of his foul deeds and so that Claudius can keep himself safe. Laertes and Claudius both want Hamlet dead for his deeds and begin to plot for his demise.
