19. Horation attempts to kill himself, but Hamlet told him that he cannot because he must live so he can tell Hamlet's story. He is the only one that knows the truth.

5. I think it's ironic because they are in such a sad environment, yet they are joking around and the grave-digger is singing.

10. Hamlet rewrote the orders in the commission letters that Claudius had sent with him.

13. Hamlet is eager to start the fencing match. He says "I embrace it freely... Give us the foils. Come on." This shows that he's ready to fight Laertes

11. He has become a man that stands up for his own causes. He is now a 'kingly' man. He will fight for what he believes is right and no one will stand in his way.
16. Hamlet is cut by the poison blade of Laertes foil.

1. The clowns are implying that if a member of a rich family drowns them self, they get a christian burial, but if a peasant drowns them self, they don't.

18. Horatio tries to kill himself by drinking the poison.

2) Ophelia's burial caused many comments because technically someone who has committed suicide should not have received a proper christian burial, but because she was higher in social status she did anyways. It was also done very hastily and quietly.
20) Hamlets final act is to appoint Fortinbras as the new king.

3. The reason given is because of her father's status. A higher social status, polonius was claudius' advisor.
9. I think when Laertes jumps into the grave after Ophelia is what angers Hamlet.

8. Hamlet is angered by Laertes because during Ophelia's funeral, Laertes jumped into the grave with his sister in grief.

14. Hamlet is telling Laertes that he did wrong him. He told him not to blame him, but to blame his madness instead. Since he was mad then it is not his fault

7) The priest declares that if Ophelia was not of high rank and did not have a family with money she would not be buried as a christian, because suicide was considered a sin at the time.

21) Hamlet rewrites Claudius's orders which saves his life and takes the lives of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.

Hamlet agrees to fence with Laertes which results in his, Laertes's, the King's, and the Queen's death.

Claudius poisons the wine which murders his Queen instead of Hamlet

Laertes poisons his sword which ends up killing him as well as Hamlet
