This is the conversation between Claudius, Gertrude, Rosenercrantz, and Guildenstein. It is interesting because they are all very worried about Hamlet.

  1. I agree with Hamlet's speech to Ophelia being very important in that it reveals a more sensitive side of Hamlet, that we rarely see anymore due to his newly found vengence for his father's murder.
