The Readiness Is All
Transcript of The Readiness Is All
Thaw, and resolve itself into a dew,
Or that the Everlasting had not fixed
His canon 'gainst self-slaughter! O God, God!
How weary, stale, flat, and unprofitable
Seem to me all the uses of this world!"
-Act 1, Scene 2 Act 1 Plot 3: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern have been summoned to the kingdom by Claudius and Gertrude to find out what is wrong with Hamlet. Act 2 Quote 2:To be, or not to be? That is the question—
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And, by opposing, end them?"
-Act 3, Scene 1 Act 3 Plot 7: Hamlet is about to be sent to England after reavealing the location of the dead Polonius. He stops though as he learns about the attack on Poland over a useless part of land. Hamlet then compares his situation to that of Fortinbras and swears to complete his revenge for his father. Act 4 Quote 5:"Don’t you think it’s my duty now to kill him with this weapon? This man who killed my king, made my mother a whore, took the throne that I hoped for, and set a trap to kill me. Isn’t it completely moral to kill him now with this sword—and an easy conscience? And wouldn’t I be damned if I let this monster live to do more harm?"
-Act 5, Scene 2 Act 5 Bonus Quote: "If thou didst ever hold me in thy heart
Absent thee from felicity a while,
And in this harsh world draw thy breath in pain
To tell my story."
Act 5, Scene 2 The Final Word Hamlet William Shakespeare Mykle Ayala
English 4 AP Period 7th
December 13, 2012 "To be or not to be, that is the question."
-Act 3, Scene 1 Plot 1: Hamlet's uncle, Claudius has declared his taking over the throne and marrying Queen Gertrude after the passing of King Hamlet Sr. Analysis 1: Hamlet speaks of commiting suicide because he cannot handle the passing of his father and his mother remarrying his own uncle all within a small period of time. To Hamlet, Death is a simple way out, but is a mark of sin that pushes him away from it. Plot 2: The ghost of the dead king visits with Hamlet. We learn that the cause of the King's death was foul play, and was done by Claudius! To this, Hamlet swears revenge! Quote 4:"Thus conscience does 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"
-Act 3, Scene 1 Quote 3: "To die, to sleep—
No more—and by a sleep to say we end
The heartache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to—’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished! To die, to sleep.
To sleep, perchance to dream."
Act 3, Scene 1 Quote 7: "Had I but time (as this fell sergeant, Death,
Is strict in his arrest), O, I could tell you—
But let it be.—Horatio, I am dead."
Act 5, Scene 2 Quote 6:"Not a whit, we defy augury: there's a special
providence in the fall of a sparrow. If it be now,
'tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be
now; if it be not now, yet it will come: the
readiness is all: since no man has aught of what he
leaves, what is't to leave betimes? Let be."
Act 5, Scene 2 Plot 4: Claudius learns that Fortinbras will not attack Denmark and instead will use it merely as a passage to make across for Poland. Plot 8: After the death of Polonius and the fall into insanity by Ophelia, Laertes is persuaded by Claudius to take action and kill Hamlet in a fencing match. Analysis 2: Hamlet begins his soliloquy with this statement and contemplates the subect of life and death once more. Thing is, he never specifies whether he speaks about his own life as he continues to speak. he speaks more generally on life and death as ending it all would be easy and living is a life of suffering. Analysis 3: This quote further ellaborates on how it would be so much easier to just sleep and die from the word of pain and suffering. It may be bitter-sweet, but it's something that can be wished by Hamlet to end his suffering and mourning. Analysis 4: Alas, the thought of suicide is too much for one's conscience to consider. The mere thought is a shock to Hamlet for he must carry out his father's revenge. Suicide is not on the mind at the moment and must be cast off. Plot 5: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern have joined the party at Denmark as Claudius and Gertrude have invited them to find the cause of Hamlet's insanity, Plot 6: Hamlet sets forward his plan for revenge as he orchestrates a play that will detail the murder scene that took place between Hamlet Sr. and Claudius. Analysis 5: Ironically, Hamlet questions the thought of killing his uncle. what makes it so ironic is that it was that it was mission to kill Claudius in order to acheive revenge for his father. The thing he questions is whether he has the right to kill his uncle or let him live and cause more havoc. Although he contemplates whether he is the right person, we understand he has the right to it. Analysis 6: The line in which this project is based on, is the most crucial to the theme of Death. At this point, Hamlet is speaking to Horatio and basically tells him that he welcomes death. Whether it come now or later, Hamlet is ready to accept it because he believes death is inevitable and will come to all. Analysis 7: Death has stricten Hamlet as he lies on the floor full of poison. He pleads to Horatio about his passing and acceptance into the next world. Hamlet is ready to leave things as they are and let death come and take him. Plot 9: The fencing match begins as Hamlet gets the best of Laertes in two rounds. Gertrude drinks the poison and dies. Laertes gets hit with his own poisoned-tip sword sword and falls from the balcony. Claudius is forced to drink the poison from Hamlet, and above all else, the most important death ROBIN WILLIAMS (Osric). Plot 10: Hamlet dies softly as he was hit with a cheap shot from Laertes with the poisoned-tip sword. Horatio is the only one left alive as Young Fortinbras takes the throne and controls Demark...
