Transcript of Hamlet Presentation
E.S.T. 1599 to 1602
Written by Playwright William Shakespare
A figure of speech that compares two things or objects using the words "like" or "As"
Hamlet, Prince of Denmark
"Fall'n on th' inventors' heads.” (Act 5 Scene 2)
"Gertrude, do not drink. I will, my lord. I pray you, pardon me. It is the poisoned cup. It is too late" (Act 5 Scene 2)
"Make thy two eyes, like stars, start from their spheres" (Act 1,scene 5 line 17)
"Must like a whore unpack my heart with words,And fall a-cursing like a very drab" (Act 2, Scene 2, lines 571-572)
Act 1 Scene 2 Pg. 42 Line 131-13 Hyperbole-“O that this too too solid flesh would melt, thaw and resolve into a dew.”Hamlet is wishing that he could die. This shows that hamlet seems to feel that everyone is against him.
Structure of the text
"Thrift, thrift, Horatio! the funeral baked meats / Did coldly furnish forth the marriage tables" (Act1.Scene2.Line 180-181).
“Your bait of falsehood takes this carp of truth.”(Act 2.Scene 1.Line 69)
"Something is rotten in the state of Denmark." (Act 1 Scene 4)
The impact of puns in Hamlet is to add depth into the story and provides comic relief.
A pun is a joke exploiting the different possible meanings of a word or the fact that there are words that sound alike but have different meanings.
A group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words
”Were nothing but to waste night, day, and time;
Therefore, since brevity is the soul of wit,
And tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes,I will be brief. Your noble son is mad. . .” Hamlet Act 2, scene 2, 86–92
I loved you ever: but it is no matter;
Let Hercules himself do what he may,
The cat will mew and dog will have his day.(act 5, scene 1, page 13)
The impact of Idioms in Hamlet is to help the reader/viewer better understand the play by comparing it to actual everyday things.

And will not wrong it.” (Act 5 Scene 2)
