Hamlet
Act I Scene V
(lines 92-112)
Soliloquy Act I Scene V "O all you host of heaven! O earth! What else?
And shall I couple hell? Oh, fie! Hold, hold, my heart,
And you, my sinews, grow not instant old,
But bear me stiffly up. Remember thee!
Ay, thou poor ghost, whiles memory holds a seat
In this distracted globe. Remember thee!
Yea, from the table of my memory
I’ll wipe away all trivial fond records,
All saws of books, all forms, all pressures past
That youth and observation copied there,
And thy commandment all alone shall live
Within the book and volume of my brain,
Unmixed with baser matter. Yes, by heaven!
O most pernicious woman!
O villain, villain, smiling, damnèd villain!
My tables!—Meet it is I set it down
That one may smile, and smile, and be a villain.
At least I’m sure it may be so in Denmark. (writes)
So, uncle, there you are. Now to my word.
It is “Adieu, adieu. Remember me.”I have sworn ’t." Hamlet's 20 line soliloquy He said what? Just saw the ghost
Found out about murder
State of shock Keep in mind that Hamlet... Ecphonesis O "O all you host of heaven! O earth! What else?" (i.v.92)

"O most pernicious woman!O villain, villain, smiling, damned villain!" (i.v.105-106)

Anguish
Anger
Disgust

The O shows that Hamlet feels anguish and is surprised.

It also shows the anger that has grown towards the queen and king. He uses the O to show disgust towards the queen as well. Lets take a closer look! Repetition "But bear me stiffly up. Remember thee!
Ay, thou poor ghost, whiles memory holds a seat
In this distracted globe. Remember thee!" (i.v.95-97)

The repetition of this phrase adds a deeper emotion to his soliloquy.

Repetition often tries to build up throughout the speech.

Emphasizes the importance of remembering the past king's ghost. Alliteration "O villain, villain, smiling, damnèd villain!
My tables!—Meet it is I set it down
That one may smile, and smile, and be a villain."
(i.v.106-108)

Adds emphasis and emotion
Gets a bit louder each time
Said with force
Shows Hamlet is furious with the king. Although the king smiles away, Hamlet calls him a villain. But wait, there's more! Still more... Definition "And shall I couple hell? Oh, fie! Hold, hold, my heart," (line 92) Fie
According to Webster:
used to express disgust or disapproval

According to Urban dictionary:
means curses or, yes, f*ck in a polite way back in the middle ages But why does Hamlet use profanity? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Yes, Sharon. It makes it awesome! :D Am I right Mr. Crowley? Anyway Personification "Hold, hold, my heart, And you, my sinews, grow not instant old, But bear me stiffly up." (lines 92-93)

Hamlet talks to his heart & muscles.

Neither his heart nor muscles are a person.

Hamlet is asking for his heart to keep beating. He's also asking his muscles to not grow old yet, but instead, to keep him standing. Alright, that's great and all, but I still don't know what the heck he said! So, how's the video supposed to help? “ O all you host of Heaven! O earth! What else? And shall I couple hell?” (Lines 92-93) vulnerable and weak side show
kneeling on the ground up against tree stump (praying position?)
questioning himself and his father
life compared to hell
life bad as hell
doesn't know what to do language and grammar
shows many sides
starts very vulnerable
ends in vengeful & threatening way Hamlet’s character to all of you in heaven! And earth! What else? What about hell? #*$@!
Hey heart, keep beating and muscles, don’t grow old. Keep me standing. I'll remember you!
Ghost, as long as I have my memory in my distracted mind, I'll remember you!
I’ll clear my mind of all memories to only have your order inside
God! You evil woman! Oh, you villain, villain, you damned, smiling villain!
Hold up, let me get some paper. I'll write down that anyone can smile and smile, and be a villain.
Well, at least in Denmark it's possible (writes)
So, uncle, there you are. Time to work on that vow I made my father.
He said, “Remember me.” and I swore I would Modern Easy Text:) Are you serious? Look at the time we don't have time to go line by line! Do you understand what he's saying now? Yup, still more... By now, I bet you are all tired of hearing me talk. Harry Styles Not to worry, I'll keep her lips busy ;D
