Hamlet, Theme Of Poison
Transcript of Hamlet, Theme Of Poison
King Hamlet The "Great Revenge" The Ghost's Visitation Where The Poison
Started Claudius poisons his brother King Hamlet for the throne of Denmark, thus conceiving and birthing the poison in Denmark. Claudius plants the seed of death in Denmark, bringing the ghost to speak to Young Hamlet. The ghost has come to Denmark and has revealed
the truth of the poison, and the nature of King Hamlet's demise, his murder. Hamlet is now poisoned as well, he is
consumed by his devotion to avenge his
father, thus begins the affects of the poison The poison has spread and afflicts the people of Denmark and to their unknowing souls the poison becomes more potent with the passing of time. Polonius, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern have taken evil counsel with the King. Thus the spread of poison. Hamlet orchestrates a scheme to expose King Claudius,
Hamlet uses the play within the play, exposing the king of his crimes. The king immediately leaves and "confesses" of his crimes. Hamlet fails again to avenge his father and further becomes dissolute, further poisoned. Laertes Hamlet confronts Gertrude and reveals his uncle's transgressions and points out hers. Hamlet hears a noise and murders Polonius, bringing the climax of Poison
that there is none above reproach, none above the poison
Denmark has fallen already. This turn of events has shifted the course of vengeance and will bring chaos to Denmark. Ophelia has drowned and died, she committed suicide.
The last flicker of hope has burned out, catastrophe and death will follow. There is to be a duel between Hamlet and Laertes, but ends in true tragedy when the queen is poisoned. Laertes is poisoned by his own blade and Hamlet already poisoned, kills the king and finally fulfills his duty to his father. Fortinbras has made his way through the kingdom, and observes the scene. KING CLAUDIUS
"Though yet of Hamlet our dear brother's death
The memory be green, and that it us befitted
To bear our hearts in grief and our whole kingdom"
(Act 1, Scene 2, Line 1-3) Ghost:
"I am thy father's spirit,
Doom'd for a certain term to walk the night,
And for the day confined to fast in fires,
Till the foul crimes done in my days of nature
Are burnt and purged away" Act 1, Scene 5, line 9-13 HAMLET:
"Does it not, think'st thee, stand me now upon—
He that hath kill'd my king and whored my mother,
Popp'd in between the election and my hopes,
Thrown out his angle for my proper life,
And with such cozenage—is't not perfect conscience,
To quit him with this arm? and is't not to be damn'd,
To let this canker of our nature come
In further evil? " Introduction, conflict, and rising action. CLAUDIUS:
"O, my offence is rank it smells to heaven;
It hath the primal eldest curse upon’t,
A brother’s murder." Hamlet has just murdered his father,
and Laertes seeks vengeance and will stop at nothing. Laertes becomes even more infuriated to see that Ophelia his sister has gone mad. Claudius poisons Laertes to kill Hamlet in a duel. LAERTES
“I dare damnation: to this point I stand,
That both the worlds I give to negligence,
Let come what comes; only I’ll be revenged Most thoroughly for my father.” Rising action, climax, and the death. Falling action, the tragedy, and the end QUEEN:
"There is a willow grows askant the brook… There on the pendant boughs her coronet weeds Clamb’ring to hang, an envious sliver broke, When down her weedy trophies and herself Fell in the weeping brook. Her clothes spread wide, And mermaid-like awhile they bore her up, Which time she chanted snatches of old lauds, As one incapable of her own distress…" HAMLET:
"O, I die, Horatio!
The potent poison quite o'ercrows my spirit...." Everyone has died and Horatio is left to give the kingdom to Fortinbras who sees the scene of death and tragedy. The poison has come back to the origins and everyone has died from the poison even the kingdom.
