Hamlet vs Hamlet

Transcript: In the play, the queen had no idea that the wine was poisoned but in the movie Queen Gertrude suspected that the wine was poisoned and she drank it to save her son. I can infer that in the movie, Queen Gertrude wasn't so blind to what was happening around her. Tech Savvy Real Flowers vs Polaroids In the play, when Opheilia goes mad and loses her mind she drops flowers. In the movie she drops polaroid pictures of flowers. In the movie, Opheilia was an amateur film student but in the play it never stated whether she was going to school or not. I can assume that she wasn't and so in the movie Ophelia had more rights as a woman. The Mousetrap By: Div Overall the Hamlet movie was way more advanced when it came to technology. Instead of taking a boat to go to England, in the movie Hamlet, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern took a plane. Also in the movie they used a fax machine while in the play they used to send letters. This helped the modern day reader better connect with the story. Sword vs Gun Contents In the play, Hamlet uses a sword on many occasions to fight and kill. In the movie, the sword was substituted with a gun. He uses a gun and shoots through the closet and kills Polonius while in the play he stabs Polonius through the curtain. The gun really fits in with the modern day Hamlet In the movie, Hamlet uses a video montage of King Claudius killing Hamlet's father instead of having actors perform a play like the play. It showed Claudius that Hamlet knew about the murder of his father. 1. Real Flowers vs Polaroids 2. The Mousetrap 3. Queen Gertrude, oblivious or not? 4. Tech Savvy 5. Sword vs Gun Oblivious or Not?

To die—to sleep, No more; and by a sleep to say we end The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to: 'tis a consummation Devoutly to be wish'd. 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. sonet "To be or not to be" 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 dispriz'd 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 undiscovere'd 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 doth make cowards of us all, And thus the native hue of resolution Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought, And enterprises of great pith and moment With this regard their currents turn awry And lose the name of action Questions 1 Why is Hamlet mad with his mother? 2 Why does the king send Hamlet to England? Questions 3 How does Gertrude die? 4 How many levels of dramatic action appear in the play? 5 What is the biggest obstacle for Hamlet?

Hamlet vs. Hamlet

Transcript: Act 1 Act 3 Hamlet's slow decent into madness really gains traction after his encounter with his father's ghost. After he learns of the way his father died at the hands of his brother and makes an interesting plan. He feels that if he acts mad he will not be suspected in his attempts to find out the truth behind his father's death. His issues are made worse when his uncle and mother call in two of his friends to spy on him. This gives him trust issues as he sees through their ruse pretty easily. This also leads to a rift with Ophelia who he loves. However, his love for her is forced down by his plans for revenge. Hamlet's mind slowly succumbs to insanity and by the end seems to have been completely lost his mind. He argues with his mother and repeatedly insults her. His father's ghost appears again to ask him to stop insulting his mother, but she can not see the ghost, and from her perspective Hamlet is talking to thin air. As he scares his mother further and threatens her life, Polonius calls out for help. Hamlet, thinking Polonius is his uncle kills him. Instead of feeling remorse or sadness after killing his love's father he is angry that it was not his uncle. This not the reaction of a sane man. He clearly has lost his mind by this point. It seems that Hamlet did love Ophelia, but in his madness and anger towards Claudius his love for her was lost. This suppressed love for her comes out violently after her death. He seems to snap back to reality actually weeping at her grave waking up to what he has done. Despite this, it was to late to save himself and his mother. His insanity, anger, and loss of focus led to their deaths and he could not prevent it as he did not see it coming until the very end. Here Hamlet is fully in character now, acting crazy and continuously plotting and trying to find out if his uncle actually killed his uncle. Hamlet comes up with a plan to judge whether to kill his uncle off of his reaction to a play. Here is where Hamlet seems to sink to far into his character and seems to believe that he is crazy. Even after he knows that his uncle killed his father he constantly wavers between action and inaction, he argues out loud with himself, and sees his father's ghost when no-one else can. It seems that he at first was in complete control, but with shock after shock and the amount of stress he was going through his character took over and he lost his mind. Hamlet vs. Hamlet Act 5 Act 2 Hamlets conflicts with himself begin early in the play. He has experienced some very troubling things in his life so far. For example, his father died before the beginning of the play, leaving his widow to marry his brother. This id only to be made worse by Hamlet's father's ghost appearing and telling him that he was murdered by his brother. This is the beginning of Hamlet losing his mind and where the play really begins. However his conflicts and the loss of rational thought is understandable considering what he is going through. Act 4
