Not too much, just enough. Marcellus says this line at the end of Act I scene i in reference to all the quite frightening and Erie events he has witnessed over the course of the Act. Marcellus: Nay, let's follow him. He clearly has an agenda, and he deals with the items on the agenda in an orderly and efficient manner. Thanking his friends, Hamlet, Horatio and Marcellus depart, Hamlet reminding the men not to say a word and lamenting that his fate now is to avenge his father's death Lines 181-188. In the grips of deep emotion, using the metaphor of a bird swooping down, he promises swift revenge.
Claudius confers with Polonius who answers verbosely that he consents to Laertes' wish. As the scene moves toward its conclusion, it is a question that needs to be asked. He tells Horatio that his father's memory haunts him. Another part of the platform. Hamlet alone could not overturn the consensus; namely, Claudius, Polonius, Gertrude and the entire Court: he had no one to appeal to as son of a dead king how helpless he must have felt.
Hamlet is bereft of choice. Yea, and perhaps out of my weakness and my melancholy as he is very potent with such spirits abuses me. She is either completely involved or completely oblivious. What is the basis for both Laetres and Polonius's objection to Ophelia's relationship with Hamlet? Horatio and the two soldiers with him represent a more objective view of the past and present because they hold no familial relation to the king. O villain, villain, smiling, damned villain! Discuss how religion will dictate the events of the play. The Ghost is the foundation of Hamlets motivation throughout the play and the cause for action of several characters. Hamlet is only using religion to justify his reluctancy.
Clayton Nocker -What does Hamlet learn from the Ghost's speech? Claudius's reply to Hamlet is a cleverly constructed argument in which he appears to concede to Hamlet that mourning his father is natural, but then creates a calmly logical argument about the loss of his parents being normal. Claudius has done this by dispatching Cornelius and Voltimand to Norway, the two men exiting after pledging their loyalty Line 40. Ghost are impr … int of people of the past. G Wedding, Birthday, Day , Night etc. Gertrude is weak and jumped on Claudius right after her husband died.
In Hamlet, Shakespeare asks the audience to empathize with Hamlet's desire for redress. A flourish of trumpets is heard along with ordnance canon fire being shot off, Hamlet explaining that this noise signals the King's revels or celebrations. Only those who are not subject to the masterful exploits of Claudius could see the ghost of Hamlet; namely Horatio, Marcellus and Bernardo. You might wonder why Hamlet is not taking immediate action. He asks the others to keep the ghost a secret.
Is it really the spirit of King Hamlet? Its a way of resolving it and making it just go away. Her opinions always seem to parallel those of the people around her, namely Claudius. He also told hamlet that it was his uncle who murdered his father, and that he also seduced Gertrude, his mother. Hamlet is not primarily an action-taken character and without the Ghost, Hamlet would never of had given himself the task of seeking revenge. Contrary to centuries of Shakespeare scholarship on Hamlet's quintessential modernity, this requirement is first and foremost factual: Hamlet is the Shakespeare character with the most lines in a single play and Hamlet is Shakespeare's longest play, clocking in at over 4 hours onstage. The people of his kingdom do nothing to make him King even though he is the rightful heir. Just as Laetres wants to return to France, Hamlet wants to return to his studies in Wittenberg, but perhaps sensing some danger in Hamlet's distance, claudius refuses permission.
Claudius has committed a sin, and now, to restore balance to the kingdom, the sin must be punished. Claudius takes charge and deals decisively with the issue of state and family. Gertrude hurries to Claudius, who is conferring with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Summary Back on the parapet — the outer walls of Castle Elsinore — follows the Ghost, who admits that he is the spirit of King Hamlet and tells his son to hear him out. The ghost looks like Hamlet's father but he only has the ghost's word for what he really is.
After the ghost sees that Hamlet has understood him he disappears. But isn't murder a sin? Not soo scary if you don't believe in ghosts but its got a nice story line. Everything in this scene points to the challenge of discerning appearance from reality, a challenge that becomes more pronounced when Horatio tells Hamlet about the appearance of the Ghost. Nobody knows how dangerouse the patient is. He dressed Gertrude's bed in satin, and he dressed the Queen, awaiting her son's arrival, in the same suggestively folded satin and silk.
