William Shakespeare

Hamlet


William shakespeare

To be, or not to be--that is the question:

Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune

Or to take arms against a sea of troubles

And by opposing end them. To die, to sleep--

No more--and by a sleep to say we end

The heartache, and the thousand natural shocks

That flesh is heir to. 'Tis a consummation

Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep--

To sleep--perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub,

For in that sleep of death what dreams may come

When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,

Must give us pause. There's the respect

That makes calamity of so long life.

For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,

Th' oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely

The pangs of despised love, the law's delay,

The insolence of office, and the spurns

That patient merit of th' unworthy takes,

When he himself might his quietus make

With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear,

To grunt and sweat under a weary life,

But that the dread of something after death,

The undiscovered country, from whose bourn

No traveller returns, puzzles the will,

And makes us rather bear those ills we have

Than fly to others that we know not of?

Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,

And thus the native hue of resolution

Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,

And enterprise of great pitch and moment

With this regard their currents turn awry

And lose the name of action. -- Soft you now,

The fair Ophelia! -- Nymph, in thy orisons

Be all my sins remembered.


William shakespeare

Hamlet is the prince of Denmark…


William shakespeare

… when he comes back to Elsinore’s castle from university,…


William shakespeare

…he finds out that his father, the king, is dead. His uncle, Claudius, has married Hamlet’s mother, Gertrude, and declared himself king of Denmark…


William shakespeare

…soon, the princemeets the ghostofhisfatherthatasks Hamlet to take revengeofhisdeath. Claudiushaskilledhim in ordertobecomeking!


William shakespeare

The prince is depressed and he pretends to be mad. He mistreats Ophelia, his beloved…


That is the question

…and wonders about what is better: suffering or death?

“To be or not to be…

..That is the question..”


William shakespeare

The king and the queen, worried, ask some friends of Hamlet to come to Elsinore and find the reason of his disease…


William shakespeare

… meanwhile, Hamlet decides to demonstrate the guilt of Claudius. He asks some players to perform a play that reminds the circumstances of his father’s death…


William shakespeare

…Claudius’ reactions to the play reveal his guilt.

Hamlet is called to talk to his mother, but, during the talk, he kills Polonius, Ophelia’s father...


William shakespeare

…Ophelia goes mad because of his father’s murder. She drowns into a river. Hamlet desperates: he loved her…


William shakespeare

…Laertes, Ophelia’s brother, challenges Hamlet to a duel. To make sure that the prince is killed, he (with Claudius’ help), poisons his sword and Hamlet’s cup…


William shakespeare

…Hamlet and Laertes are both injured with the poisoned sword. Gertrude, by mistake,drinks from Hamlet’s cup and dies.

Before dying, Hamlet forces Claudius to drink from the poisoned cup too, and so they all die, while the prince leaves the country to his most attached and wise friend, Horatio.
