Claudius, now fearing for his life, finds a legitimate excuse to get rid of the prince: he sends Hamlet to England on a diplomatic pretext, accompanied and closely watched by Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Alone, Claudius discloses that he is actually sending Hamlet to his death. Prior to embarking for England, Hamlet hides Polonius's body, ultimately revealing its location to the King. Upon leaving Elsinore, Hamlet encounters the army of Prince Fortinbras en route to do battle in Poland.
Her brother, Laertes, returns from France, horrified by his father's death and his sister's madness. She appears briefly to give out herbs and flowers. Claudius convinces Laertes that Hamlet is solely responsible; then news arrives that Hamlet is still alivea story is spread that his ship was attacked by pirates on the way to England, and he has returned to Denmark.
Claudius swiftly concocts a plot to kill his nephew but make it appear to be an accident, taking all of the blame off his shoulders.
Knowing of Hamlet's jealousy of Laertes' prowess with a sword, he proposes a fencing match between the two. Laertes, enraged at the murder of his father, informs the king that he will further poison the tip of his sword so that a mere scratch would mean certain death. Claudius, unsure that capable Hamlet could receive even a scratch, plans to offer Hamlet poisoned wine if that fails.
Gertrude enters to report that Ophelia has drowned. In the Elsinore churchyard, two "clowns", typically represented as "gravediggers," enter to prepare Ophelia's grave, and, although the coroner has ruled her death accidental so that she may receive Christian burial, they argue about its being a case of suicide.
Hamlet arrives with Horatio and banters with one of them, who unearths the skull of a jester whom Hamlet once knew, Yorick "Alas, Poor Yorick; I knew him, Horatio. Ophelia's funeral procession approaches, led by her mournful brother Laertes. Distraught at the lack of ceremony due to the actually-deemed suicide and overcome by emotion, Laertes leaps into the grave, cursing Hamlet as the cause of her death. Hamlet interrupts, professing his own love and grief for Ophelia.
He and Laertes grapple, but the fight is broken up by Claudius and Gertrude. Claudius reminds Laertes of the planned fencing match. Later that day, Hamlet tells Horatio how he escaped death on his journey, disclosing that Rosencrantz and Guildenstern have been sent to their deaths instead.
Despite Horatio's warnings, Hamlet accepts and the match begins. After several rounds, Gertrude toasts Hamletagainst the urgent warning of Claudiusaccidentally drinking the wine he poisoned. Between bouts, Laertes attacks and pierces Hamlet with his poisoned blade; in the ensuing scuffle, Hamlet is able to use Laertes's own poisoned sword against him. Gertrude falls and, in her dying breath, announces that she has been poisoned.
In his dying moments, Laertes is reconciled with Hamlet and reveals Claudius's murderous plot. Hamlet stabs Claudius with the poisoned sword, and then forces him to drink from his own poisoned cup to make sure he dies. In his final moments, Hamlet names Prince Fortinbras of Norway as the probable heir to the throne, since the Danish kingship is an elected position, with the country's nobles having the final say.
Horatio attempts to kill himself with the same poisoned wine but is stopped by Hamlet, as he will be the only one left alive who can give a full account of the story. Horatio asks to be allowed to recount the tale to "the yet unknowing world," and Fortinbras orders Hamlet's body borne off in honour. Gymnasium Hamlet Sources Hamlet-like legends are so widely found for example in Italy, Spain, Scandinavia, Byzantium, and Arabia that the core "hero-as-fool" theme is possibly Indo-European in origin.
The first is the anonymous Scandinavian Saga of Hrolf Kraki. In this, the murdered king has two sons Hroar and Helgiwho spend most of the story in disguise, under false names, rather than feigning madness, in a sequence of events that differs from Shakespeare's. Its hero, Lucius "shining, light" , changes his name and persona to Brutus "dull, stupid" , playing the role of a fool to avoid the fate of his father and brothers, and eventually slaying his family's killer, King Tarquinius.
Similarities include the prince's feigned madness, his accidental killing of the king's counsellor in his mother's bedroom, and the eventual slaying of his uncle. A reasonably faithful version of Saxo's story was translated into French in by Franois de Belleforest, in his Histoires tragiques.
According to a popular theory, Shakespeare's main source is believed to be an earlier play now lostknown today as the Ur-Hamlet. Possibly written by Thomas Kyd or even William Shakespeare himself, the Ur-Hamlet would have been in performance by and the first version of the story known to incorporate a ghost. Consequently, there is no direct evidence that Kyd wrote it, nor any evidence that the play was not an early version of Hamlet by Shakespeare himself.
This latter idea placing Hamlet far earlier than the generally accepted date, with a much longer period of developmenthas attracted some support, though others dismiss it as speculation.
The upshot is that scholars cannot assert with any confidence how much material Shakespeare took from the Ur-Hamlet if it even existed , how much from Belleforest or Saxo, and how much from other contemporary sources such as Kyd's The Spanish Tragedy.
No clear evidence exists that Shakespeare made any direct references to Saxo's version. Gymnasium Hamlet However, elements of Belleforest's version which are not in Saxo's story do appear in Shakespeare's play.
Whether Shakespeare took these from Belleforest directly or through the Ur-Hamlet remains unclear. Most scholars reject the idea that Hamlet is in any way connected with Shakespeare's only son, Hamnet Shakespeare, who died in at age eleven. Conventional wisdom holds that Hamlet is too obviously connected to legend, and the name Hamnet was quite popular at the time.
He notes that the name of Hamnet Sadler, the Stratford neighbour after whom Hamnet was named, was often written as Hamlet Sadler and that, in the loose orthography of the time, the names were virtually interchangeable.
John Dover Wilson thought it almost certain that the figure of Polonius caricatured Burleigh, while A. Rowse speculated that Polonius's tedious verbosity might have resembled Burghley's.
Harold Jenkins criticised the idea of any direct personal satire as "unlikely" and "uncharacteristic of Shakespeare", while G. Gymnasium Hamlet Texts Three early editions of the text have survived, making attempts to establish a single "authentic" text problematic.
Q1 contains just over half of the text of the later second quarto. Q2 is the longest early edition, although it omits 85 lines found in F1 most likely to avoid offending James I's queen, Anne of Denmark. Each text contains material that the other lacks, with many minor differences in wording: scarcely lines are identical in the two. Editors have combined them in an effort to create one "inclusive" text that reflects an imagined "ideal" of Shakespeare's original.
Theobald's version became standard for a long time, and his "full text" approach continues to influence editorial practice to the present day.
Media in category "Books by Ivan Cankar"
Some contemporary scholarship, however, discounts this approach, instead considering "an authentic Hamlet an unrealisable ideal. Traditionally, editors of Shakespeare's plays have divided them into five acts. None of the early texts of Hamlet, however, were arranged this way, and the play's division into acts and scenes derives from a quarto.
Modern editors generally follow this traditional division, but consider it unsatisfactory; for example, after Hamlet drags Polonius's body out of Gertrude's bedchamber, there is an act-break after which the action appears to continue uninterrupted.
The discovery in of Q1whose existence had been quite unsuspectedcaused considerable interest and excitement, raising many questions of editorial practice and interpretation. Scholars immediately identified apparent deficiencies in Q1, which was instrumental in the development of the concept of a Shakespearean "bad quarto".
Yet Q1 has value: it contains stage directions that reveal actual stage practices in a way that Q2 and F1 do not; it contains an entire scene usually labelled 4. Gymnasium Hamlet The scene order is more coherent, without the problems of Q2 and F1 of Hamlet seeming to resolve something in one scene and enter the next drowning in indecision.
Hamlet Five Act Structure
The major deficiency of Q1 is in the language: particularly noticeable in the opening lines of the famous "To be, or not to be" soliloquy: "To be, or not to be, aye there's the point. Another theory, considered by New Cambridge editor Kathleen Irace, holds that Q1 is an abridged version intended especially for travelling productions.
Gymnasium Analysis and criticism Critical history From the early 17th century, the play was famous for its ghost and vivid dramatisation of melancholy and insanity, leading to a procession of mad courtiers and ladies in Jacobean and Carolinedrama. Before then, he was either mad, or not; either a hero, or not; with no in-betweens. Dramatic structure Hamlet departed from contemporary dramatic convention in several ways. For example, in Shakespeare's day, plays were usually expected to follow the advice of Aristotle in his Poetics: that a drama should focus on action, not character.
In Hamlet, Shakespeare reverses this so that it is through the soliloquies, not the action, that the audience learns Hamlet's motives and thoughts. The play is full of seeming discontinuities and irregularities of action, except in the "bad" quarto. At one point, as in the Gravedigger scene, Hamlet seems resolved to kill Claudius: in the next scene, however, when Claudius appears, he is suddenly tame.
Scholars still debate whether these twists are mistakes or intentional additions to add to the play's theme of confusion and duality.

William Shakespeare. After the inevitable title page, the book opens with three carefully chosen epigraphs, liminal devices which readers are wont to overlook even though to do so would at - least in this particular case amount to a failure to engage the fine complexity which the novel unpretentiously offers. It may come as a bit of a shock to hear that this clash involved, and in a sense still does, Shakespeare and Shakespeareans as well.
The first epigraph is taken from the Old Testament Book of Job, the second one is from the Koran, the third is an inscription found on one of the unusual Bosnian mcdi aeval tombstones. All three of them presage the central themes and moods of the nar rative and they thus establish a useful and important frame within which the meanings of William Shakespeare in Dar es Salaam are supposed to circulate.
If for no other reason, they deserve attention because they are found at the very beginning of the tex tual document, the most conspicuous yet the most tricky of positions, insisting on the fact that there are three of them rather than as is nonrially the case just one.
In order — atian? A suggestive remark on names is found in the novel itself Although they are the thieho1d, their meanIngs only become apparent when we come back to them, when they achieve the status of something remembered. Thinking about the chosen epigraphs retrospectively, once the novel has been read, we are unlikely to miss some very clear references not simply to Shakespeare but also to the play around which much of the novel is structured: To quote from the Book of Job8 is at once to invoke a figure of undeserved suffer ing and to stress the fact that Ejub, the central character in the novel, bears a name which is a simple Turkish equivalent of the Hebrew Job.
He, too, is suffering, and he is — as the quotation from the Old Testament tells us withering away, like a fleeting — shadow. No body, not even his children, wanted to hear anything about the wretch who lost all he had and was then confined in a concentration camp Ejub is in Denmark because the country he was headed for closed its borders to the Bosnian refugees a couple of hours before he arrived 48— Tortured in a Serb concentration camp and suffering from a bad wound on his body, he finds shelter and counselling in a small Danish town as a protected witness of the International War Crimes Tribunal in the Hague.
What is more, he is expected to testify about his traumatic experience and is therefore expected to re member it. The verse in question is Job Beganovid op. The complex interconnections between memory and trauma have received detailed treatment in a number of recent publications the most inspiring of which are probably those by Cathy Caruth.

The words found in the Epilogue are striking: This, however, we knew to be nonsense. The truth was worse than this. The fact that Ejub is refused access to his original destination invites us to look at Denmark and by extension the Hague as places of purgatorial trauma.
To remember the Ghost and the task set by him is what Hamlet is pledged to do, yet his brooding on these themes does not make him certain of setting anything right as it used to be or the way it was remembered nor does it guarantee that his memories will transport him or Ejub for that matter home or that the oblivion of sleep will not awaken the memories and bar his entry to the peace of the hereafter. I have therefore preferred a literal rendering of the Croatian translation.

Fine, Jr.. The Late Medieval Balkans: It should surprise no one that a book so con cerned with the liminal and the marginalized should give away its central preoccupations on the often ignored threshold, the place of desire that often remains unfulfilled, of something that wished to be and then was not. It is, however, totally inappropriate. First, the Bosnian Church does not appear to have been Bogomil or dualist.
Second, inscriptions on a number of stones indicate that they were erected by members of all three local denominations. Thus, those Catholics, Orthodox, and Bosnian Church members who could afford it put up these stones.

Originally I intended to address as part of this paper the tension between memo ry and history represented in this novel by means of Shakespeare but decided that the question would requ ire more space if the treatment were to be responsible.
However, I would like the final sections of this paper to be read with this particular problematic in mind. On the one hand, great care is taken to make sure that Shakespeare is always guarded from the harmful effects his works might have produced or might produce, and these are consistently explained as either myopic misconstruals interpretive fallacies or as the inability in the critic to appreciate the whole some ness of the moral lesson Shake speare teaches and thus inevitably to miss the truth of what Shakespeare is really about: Corwin, Dubious Mandate: Duke University Press, In fact, I suspected we were witnessing a bit of Balkan theatre, and as a student of Shakespeare, Koijevic was an accomplished performer in that art form.Gymnasium Analysis and criticism Critical history From the early 17th century, the play was famous for its ghost and vivid dramatisation of melancholy and insanity, leading to a procession of mad courtiers and ladies in Jacobean and Carolinedrama.
