HAMLET

Welcome to the world of the greatest writer of all time!

HAMLET – Challenge 2 – The plot

December28

So here is your second challenge. In your OWN words can you tell me the basic plot of Hamlet. The important part is you have to do it in NO MORE THAN 200 WORDS!

There can be NO spelling mistakes and NO punctuation mistakes either. So you might want to draft it before you type!

Good luck!

“HAMLET – Challenge 2 – The plot”

    Hamlet comes back from university to find out from Horatio his father, the King, was dead. Unexpectedly, Gertrude (Hamlet’s mother) married his uncle Claudius. The ghost of Hamlet’s father told Hamlet that Claudius murdered him. He wants Hamlet to get revenge. Hamlet paid actors to act the murder of the King in front of Claudius. The reaction on Claudius’s face proved the ghost right. Hamlet went to tell his mother everything, but she didn’t listen. Hamlet heard a noise from behind the curtain and stabbed it. He killed an innocent man, Polonius. Hamlet was sent away to England by Claudius but he was saved by pirates. Back in Denmark Hamlet wrote to Horatio and his mother. He told her he will return to make it all right again. Horatio told Hamlet that his love Ophelia had drowned herself because her father (Polonius) was murdered. Hamlet returned to Elsinore to fight angry Laertes, Ophelia’s brother. Hamlet won the first round! Unknowingly, Gertrude drank the poisonous wine that Claudius had made for Hamlet. Laertes hit Hamlet with a poisonous sword. Hamlet took the sword and hit him back. Quickly, Hamlet killed Claudius with the poisonous sword and then died in Horatio’s arms.

    The plot is based on the consequence of jealousy, it is tied to justice and vengeance of King Hamlet.
    Prince Hamlet is mournful, having received the devastating news of his father’s death. After the funeral Hamlet was disgusted to find his mother (Gertrude) already remarried to his uncle Claudius, the brother and murderer of his dead father King Hamlet.

    After his mother’s wedding Hamlet sees his father’s spirit, this inspires Hamlet’s quest for revenge. To confirm the truth behind his father’s death Hamlet exhibits a play that reveals the plot of the dead king; as a result Claudius leaves the room in fear and guilt . This indicated Claudius was responsible for king Hamlet’s death.

    Claudius saw this as a threat to his reign , so in order to stay king Claudius plans a plot against Hamlet with Hamlet’s best friend Leartes. Claudius and Leartes decide to poison the tip of Leartes sword so as soon as it strikes Hamlet, he would die, meanwhile Hamlet also plans to poison Claudius with a drink.

    But instead things did not go according to their plans and unfortunately no one lived to tell the tale, however Hamlet did succeed to avenge his father’s unjust death.

    Hamlet the prince of Denmark has just came back from university and has been told that his farther has died. Then he goes to his father’s funeral but then see’s that his mother has married to his uncle. After a ghost appears and this is the ghost of his farther who tells him that you must seek revenge on your uncle because he is the one who has killed me. Hamlet then makes a play which makes Claudius guilty and runs away so now Hamlet knows he seeks revenge. Meanwhile his girlfriend Ophelia gets mad because of him killing her farther and speaks rude and then drowns. Then Laertres wants revenge on Hamlet and even Claudius teams up with Laertres to kill Hamlet by doing a battle. So, they do the battle but in Laertres weapon it is poisoned the tip of his sword but get mixed up. So then Laertres dies and then Hamlet dies but there was a drink for Hamlet encase he is tired but his mother drinks it dies but just after Hamlet dies he stabbed Claudius and everyone dies at the end. Horatio and the new king of Denmark are only alive.

    Hamlet comes back from university to find his dead father, the king. Surprisingly, Hamlet finds Gertrude, (his mother) has become very close with Claudius, (Hamlet’s uncle) and have planned to get married. One night, Hamlet sees the ghost of his dead father and the ghost tells him that Claudius is the murderer of Hamlet’s father, and that Hamlet must get revenge. After that night, Hamlet decides to put on a play about the murder of his father, to see Claudius’ reaction. If Claudius looks guilty and run away, the ghost is right, and Hamlet should take revenge on him. But, if Claudius reacts normal then the ghost is wrong.
    Through out the play, Claudius feels guilty and runs away while saying:
    “give us some light, away!” so Hamlet realises that the ghost was right. So Hamlet tries to tell Gertrude that Claudius was the murderer, but she wouldn’t listen. Hamlet thought that Claudius was behind the curtain and stabbed him. But, instead he killed Polonius, Ophelia’s father.Claudius sent Hamlet back to England but pirates saved him and bought him back.When Hamlet came back, Ophelia tried to calm Hamlet down a bit, but instead Hamlet upset Ophelia (Hamlet’s girlfriend) so she drowned in a river dy singing sweet songs to herself. Laertes, (Ophelia’s brother) planned to have a fight with Hamlet as he killed his whole family. Claudius prepared a poisonous sword tor Laertes, but the swords got mixed up so Hamlet killed Laertes, then Laertes killed Hamled and Gertrude drank the poison drink. So in the end,everyone died ecxept from Horatio,Hamlet’s friend, so he became king.

    There was a man who was named Claudius and he put poison in his brothers ear and he died. Hamlet was at his university to see his father and he saw Claudius with his mother Gertrude. He went to see Ophelia and Hamlet said ‘you should become a nun,Ophelia got mad and then through herself in to a river and died. Some people were digging a grave for Ophelia. Hamlet said ‘who is this grave for?’ Some more people came in and showed him who this grave is for. He then said ‘why why did I do this?’ Hamlet saw a curtain and he thought Claudius was behind the curtain but no it was polonius he said ‘uh oh he killed Ophelias father. Claudius and Lysander made a plan to kill Hamlet. They will have a poisonious stick and Hamlet will have the normal stick. They start fighting and swap sword and everyone dies. Gerdrude then drinks the poisonious drink and dies and Heratio was the last one.

    Hamlet the prince of Denmark comes home to his mother (Gertrude) and uncle (Claudius) getting married very recently after his fathers death how could someone do such a thing.One night hamlet see’s his father in ghost form, he says “you must kill Claudius because he was the one who killed me in the first place he poured poison into my ear while I was sleeping. Then after that he wanted to get revenge so he put on a play with travelling actors to see Claudius’s reaction. There play was all about Claudius pouring poison into Hamlets father’s ear. Hamlet immediately clocked Claudius’s reaction when he ran out and said “give us some light, away.” Soon after all of this, Hamlet started to become mad and then Ophelia and Hamlet was that mad one day he was talking to his mother and thought Claudius was listening from behind a curtain but little did he know it was Polonius Ophelia and Laertes father, and shot his gun and then realised who it actually was and just said “dispose of the body.” So that’s exactly what they did, after Laertes and Ophelia found out they both got so upset and mad Ophelia sadly drowned herself in a river and for Laertes he just had a stick fight with Hamlet but Laertes had poisoned his stick but they got mixed up there was also a poisoned drink for Hamlet but Gertrude accidently drank it so she was dead then both Hamlet and Laertes got stabbed with the poisoned stick but Laertes did first so while Hamlet was slowly dying he stabbed Claudius so everyone was dead except Horatio and Fortinbras who took over as king in the end.

So that’s exactly what they did, after Laertes and Ophelia found out they both got so upset and mad. Ophelia drowned herself in a river and for Laertes he just had a stick fight with Hamlet but Laertes had poisoned his stick, they got mixed up, there was also a poisoned drink for Hamlet, accidentally Gertrude drank so she died. Both Hamlet and Laertes died from the poisonous stick, While Hamlet was slowly dying he stabbed Claudius, so Fortinbras became king.

    The play starts of when Hamlet comes back to Denmark from his University in England. When he gets home he finds out that his father had died and his mother (Gertrude) had got married to his uncle (Claudius) who is now the king of Denmark. Hamlets best friend (Horasio) tells him that a ghost is haunting the castle. One-night Hamlet sees his father in ghost form. He tells Hamlet that his brother (Hamlets uncle) had poisoned him by putting poise into his ear while he was sleeping. Hamlets father told him that he needed to get revenge for him. Hamlet paid a group of actors to act out a scene of a king getting so that he could see if his fathers ghost was telling the truth. As the play got to the part where the king was getting poisoned, Hamlet watched as his uncle started to sweat and get nervous. Hamlet went to tell his mother everything, but she didn’t listen. Hamlet heard a noise from behind the curtain and stabbed it. He killed an innocent man, Polonius. Hamlet was sent away to England by Claudius, but he was saved by pirates. In Denmark Hamlet wrote to his mother.

    Hamlet came back to Denmark to attend his father’s funeral. His mum Gertrude had a wedding with his uncle Claudius at the same day. Hamlet saw his father as a ghost. The ghost said that Claudius killed him and ask Hamlet about revenge. Hamlet acted like a madman, because he wanted to find out the truth. He also told Ophelia he doesn’t love her anymore. He paid the money to the group of actors to play his father’s death during their performance. He discovered his uncle is a murderer. Claudius set a trap during which Hamlet killed Polonius. Hamlet was sent to England and then saved by pirates, and came back home. Ophelia drowned herself, because she had a broken heart. Laertes,brother of Ophelia,fought with Hamlet to revenge Polonius- his father.Hamlet was hurt with the poison sword and with the same sword he killed Laerters and Claudius. Gertrude drank the poison drink by mistake and died. Hamlet died, because the poison went inside his blood.
