What does Hamlet learn about the land over which Norway and Poland are set to fight from the captain in Fortinbras army?
The land is essentially worthless.
What does Hamlet learn about the land over which Norway and Poland are set to fight from the captain in Fortinbras' army?
The land is essentially worthless.
Not exactly. Fortinbras is transporting his army to Poland. Hamlet enters as they pass and questions one of the soldiers in the army as to what is going on. But he doesn't actually talk to Fortinbras himself. Fortinbras leaves the stage as Hamlet comes on.
No, Fortinbras does as declared by Hamlet and Fortinbras. Fortinbras is on his way back from Poland and is expecting to see the king and say that Rosencrantz and Guildenstern were executed, but instead he sees everyone dead and says it is his right to be king. Fortinbras then orders a funeral for Hamlet.
Fortinbras is heir to the throne of Norway. He is a parallel character to Hamlet. He wants to recover the lands that King Hamlet, Prince Hamlet's father, won away from Norway in combat on the day that Prince Hamlet was born. He asks for free passage across Denmark to attack Poland, but that may be a ruse to get his troops on Danish land to force his claim. [This is what has Claudius worried enough… Read More
During the play Claudius mentions numerous times that Norway would likely attack Denmark. Before the play, Denmark had taken much land from Norway and Hamlet Sr (Hamlet's father) killed the Norwegian King (Fortinbras' father). Technically though, Norway never attacks Denmark, but the two can be considered to be on the brinks of war. It should be noted Norway does attack and take land from Poland during the play.
They say that the King of Norway has reined in Fortinbras, and that Fortinbras is not going to pursue his ambitions against Denmark any more. Instead, he wants to take the army he has sharked up in the skirts of Norway and attack Poland, and requests passage through Denmark to do so.
They are off to fight and possibly die in a totally pointless war against Poland.
Fortinbras wants to make sure that it is all right for him to march his army through Denmark on the way to Poland.
Fortinbras in the nephew of the King of Norway. He is browned off because his father was killed in a duel with Hamlet Sr. (father of prince Hamlet), and all of his family's lands became the property of the Danish Crown. At the beginning of the play he is sharking up an army of lawless types to attack Denmark. Claudius is able to get the King of Norway (who didn't know this was going on)… Read More
This is Act IV Scene 4 I imagine you are talking about, the scene in which Hamlet makes his "How all occasions do inform against me" speech. Hamlet, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are on their way to catch the next boat to England when they cross paths with Fortinbras's army on its way to Poland.
I suspect Claudius does not take young Fortinbras as a serious threat to Denmark. At Act 2 Scene 2, news of Norway from Voltemand would appear to be "good news", yet this diplomatic importance to the King plays second fiddle to Hamlet's health. Claudius does not promptly respond to this message and would wait/hesitate (much like hamlet) without taking prompt action: "Wasting time", as a nervous Polonius would interject The message when looked at closer… Read More

Poland is just the other side of Denmark. Historically, no Polish state ever got that close to Denmark, even at its largest. But we should be used to geographical anomalies in Shakespeare after hearing about the seacoast of Bohemia
