    The Tragedy of Hamlet

    Post by Maria on Sat Mar 21, 2009 8:25 pm

    William Shakespeare's Tragedy

    It starts on the castle battlements in Denmark, where the guards see the dead kings ghost, Hamlet's father. They bring Hamlet to the ghost the next night.
    The Ghost tells Hamlet that he was murdered by Hamlet's uncle, Claudius, who is now the king because he married Hamlet's mother, Gertrude, who is still living.
    Hamlet meets a group of actors and tells them to do a recreation of the killing of Hamlet's father. In the middle of the play Hamlet's uncle, Claudius, goes crazy and it's proven that the new king is guilty of murder.
    Later, Hamlet is talking with his mother and Ophelia's (Hamlet's girlfriend) father, Polonius, is behind the curtain. Hamlet thinks it's Claudius and stabs the curtain and kills Polonius.
    Ophelia goes crazy and drowns in a river. Ophelia's brother, Laertes, is mad at Hamlet so he challenges him to a sword fight. King Claudius gets in on it too and he poisons Hamlet's wine. Just to make sure Hamlet dies Laertes puts poison on the tip of his sword.
    During the duel, Laertes scratches Hamlet with the poison sword. Hamlet picks up the poison sward and stabs Laertes. The queen gets thirsty and drinks the poison wine that Hamlet was going to drink. Hamlet gets up and stabs the new king. The only one who survived was Horatio, Hamlet's best friend.
