5. Hamlet’s soliloquy in this scene is very reminiscent of his second soliloquy – "O, what a rogue and peasant slave am I!" (Act 2, Scene 2). How are the two soliloquies alike?

In Scene 5 the Queen is told about Ophelia, who has gone mad out of grief for her father. Claudius is also distressed because Laertes has returned to Denmark with a growing number of supporters who have implicated the King in his father’s death. Laertes arrives demanding vengeance for his father’s death. Claudius is able to calm him momentarily until Ophelia reenters. Laertes’ grief increases at the sight of her.

6. Ophelia’s appearance and behaviour compare with Hamlet’s in Act 2, Scene 2. In what ways is this true?

In Scene vi sailors bring important correspondence to Horatio, who finds out that Hamlet has returned safely to Denmark while Rosencrantz and Guildenstern have continued on to England.

7. Hamlet’s terse and cryptic letter is significant for what it says and what it doesn’t say. What additional information would you like to have from Hamlet?

Laertes, convinced of Claudius’s innocence, joins forces with him to contrive against Hamlet. Claudius uses flattery and guilt to manipulate Laertes into agreeing to a duel with Hamlet. Their plotting is interrupted by Gertrude, who brings them news of Ophelia’s death.

8. What excuses does Claudius give to Laertes for not having seized Hamlet?
