quote 1 “there is something rotten in the state of Denmark” This line is spoken by marcellus after the ghost of former king hamlet appears. it describes the theme of the play which is significant because denmark is decaying, or being exposed to political corruption under claudius’ rule. he has killed the former king hamlet, and married his widow two months later.
quote 2 “the plays the thing, wherein i’ll catch the conscience of the king” this is said by hamlet speaking about the mousetrap. this is significant because the play is where hamlet finds out the ghost was telling the truth, and claudius actually murdered the king by putting poison in his ear.
hamlet is a tragic hero hamlet is a tragic hero because he is the prince of denmark who suffers from procrastination. Hamlet is told by the ghost of king hamlet, that he must avenge his death but not harm his mother. although hamlet does end up killing claudius, gertrude still dies, and hamlet dies as well leaving fortinbras as the new king of denmark.
