InAct IV Scene 4, is on his way to England when he observesFortinbras leading his troops to Poland. He questions the captain andlearns that the Norwegians are to wage war over a worthless piece ofland in Poland. reflects on how the soldiers have left theirhomes and committed themselves to an eggshell. The essay looks at’s emotional experiences, his conclusion, audience feeling,and director’s notes.
Overthe course of the speech, is in great agony. He is also angrythat many people are to risk their lives over a worthless piece ofland. His agony originates from the revenge, which is all over hismind. This is evident in ’s statement, “I do not know Whyyet I live to say ‘This thing’s to do,’ Sith I have cause…meansto do’t.” (Shakespeare,2012).
Inthe scene, is still dawdling about killing Claudius toretaliate for his dad’s homicide. Observing the soldiers act as histurning point. He finally decides to avenge his father afterrealizing his duty to revenge is very great that the end has tojustify the means. The fear of committing murder worries him, but thesoldier`s sacrifice makes him realize that he has stalled longenough.
Afterhearing ’s speech, I want the audience to feel sympathy forhim. is going through a hard time, and he is required to makemany difficult decisions.
Stagecraftis of paramount when acting. The actor delivering the soliloquy needsto be alone, wearing black attire as a sign of mourning. Onespotlight on a dimmed room should be used to follow ’smovement. Further, needs to be a victim of circumstances. Histone should be serious and personal. During the speech, the actorneeds to change the tone from that of agony to that of courage, as atthe end, decides to avenge his father. The actor’s bodyshould be rapid and irregular to show confusion and disgust has towards his revenge. In definition, irregular body refers to useof body language and signs, instead of just standing. Stagecraft, onthe other hand, is the staging of a play. Victim of circumstance issuffering from some adverse acts.
