Copying down the allusions referenced in Act II

hamlet s reference to polonius as jephtha
HAMLET’S REFERENCE TO POLONIUS AS JEPHTHA
  • WHO WAS JEPHTHA?
    • In the Bible, Jephtha was a judge who presided over Israel for six years. He led the Israelites into a battle with Amon and asked God to give him a victory—if he gave him a victory, he would sacrifice the first person who walked through the door. The first person to walk through the door was his daughter and only child. He had to sacrifice her. She asked if he would allow her to go to the mountains for two months to bewail her virginity. She gets herself to a nunnery—then she is sacrificed.

what does it mean
WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
  • Polonius is like Jep in that he bars Ophelia from marriage and procreation (essentially keeping her a virgin).
  • There are more explanations on the similarities—but we won’t get to them until Act 3.
after the soliloquy
AFTER THE SOLILOQUY
  • Hecuba – Trojan Queen in mythology, when her husband King Priam dies, her grief is enormous.
  • Famous quotes from the soliloquy to know.
    • “For murder, though it has no tongue, will speak with most miraculous organs.”
    • “The play is the thing, wherein I’ll catch the conscience of the king.”
more notes on the soliloquy
MORE NOTES ON THE SOLILOQUY
  • He is conflicted still about what to do concerning Claudius
  • Line 578—He is unsure if the spirit is legitimate. So while he spends a lot of the soliloquy tearing himself apart—he is not sure if his uncle is guilty—maybe the spirit is an evil one and tempting him to sin.
