Hamlet: act 3, scene 1

as he is finishing his speech, hamlet says, “Thus conscience does make cowards of us all, and this the native hue of resolution is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of through…” he’s speaking in general terms about mankind here, but this line also directly applies to his own life. how so? explain he can’t decide is he is going to kill Claudius or not; he wants to but he has a conscious and knows murder is wrong so that makes him a coward
while Hamlet is talking to Ophelia, he loses his cool and rails against women, saying, “God hath given you one face and you make yourselves another. you jig, you amble, and you lisp; you nickname God’s creatures and make your wantoness your ignorance. go to, Ill no more on’t It hath made me mad.” While we would all likely agree that he is being unreasonably harsh with Ophelia, lets look at his greater massage about the nature of women. is there any truth to any of his complaints? a lot of women are fake and act stupid to get attention
what line shows us that Hamlet suspects he is being spied on by polonius he asks ophelia where her dad is
what line shows us that Hamlet suspects he is being spied on by King claudius, as well Hamlet says those that are married already, all but one, shall live
at the end of the scene, what does claudius want to do with Hamlet? what is polonius’ suggestion? claudius wants to send him to englad; polonius want shim to stay and talk to his mom
