What events happened act iii of hamlet?
Act 3 is a busy act in Hamlet. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern make a report to the king, and he and Polonius plan to spy on Hamlet. They place themselves in a hidden space with Ophelia as bait. Hamlet strolls along and makes his "To be or not to be" speech. He sees Ophelia and they have a very peculiar conversation which ends with Hamlet getting angry with her and accusing her of prostituting herself (figuratively). Ophelia thinks he has lost his mind ("O what a noble mind is here o'erthrown") but Claudius draws the opposite conclusion. That's Scene 1.
In Scene 2, Hamlet meets up with the players, and after telling them how to do their job, asks Horatio to watch Claudius during the play. The play is then performed with Hamlet being terrifically rude both to the actors and to his fellow audience members. Claudius spots that the play is all to similar to his murder of Hamlet Sr. and demands that it stop. As he exits, Hamlet is exultant: the Ghost has been vindicated! Rosencrantz and Guildenstern show up and tell Hamlet to visit his mother.
On the way, Hamlet spots his uncle praying. We hear part of the prayer and know that Claudius is feeling guilt for murdering his brother. Hamlet is about to kill him then hesitates, deciding to wait until Claudius is doing something sinful. Nevertheless he says he could "drink hot blood" and he is now going to give his mother a talking-to.
In Scene four, Hamlet arrives at his mother's bedroom and begins chastising her. Polonius, hiding behind a curtain, hears and echoes Gertrude's cries for help. Hamlet, believing his moment to kill Claudius has come at last, kills Polonius thinking that he is the king. He then launches into a long tirade to his weeping mother, and is only stopped by the appearance of the Ghost. Gertrude is persuaded that Claudius is a murderer and agrees to help Hamlet, and Hamlet drags the corpse of Polonius off.
Hamlet wonders in a famous soliloquy whether it is better to live or die. Hamlet tells Ophelia that he does not love her. Hamlet goes to his mother's room to confront her. Hamlet stabs Polonius through a tapestry.
He asks them to accompany Hamlet to England and to deliver a message to the English authorities. This is in Scene III of Act III not Act IV

Hamlet and Richard III
Shakespeare's Richard III is a play which does deal in a rough way with the reign of the English king. However, some of the events depicted may not have happened at all, and others are doubtful. And as is usual with plays based on historic events, the events have been collapsed so the events of years look like they took place at the same time. The play should not be considered a reliable biography of… Read More
The phrase "To be, or not to be..." comes from Act III, Scene i, as the opening line to the most famous soliloquy in all of the Shakespearean canon. Hamlet has just entered the stage, and the King and Polonius have just exited--there is a strong suggestion that they can hear what Hamlet is saying, ostensibly aloud to himself.

Not real ghosts, presumably, but stage ghosts. Ghosts appear in the following Shakespearean plays: Hamlet, Julius Caesar, and Richard III. In Hamlet, the stage directions say only "Enter Ghost", which could mean that he entered through the same doors of all the other actors. Indeed in Act 1 Scene 5 he must enter through the same door as Hamlet as Hamlet is following him. The same can be said for Caesar's Ghost and the Ghosts… Read More
It is a quote from Shakespeare's play Hamlet, act III, scene 1. In it, Hamlet is contemplating suicide as a valid alternative to the wretchedness of his position (nephew and stepson to a king that murdered his own brother, Hamlet's father, for the throne). However, unlike with most soliloquies, Hamlet is not alone on stage when he delivers it; his would-be lover Ophelia is listening. This has led some scholars to conclude that it was… Read More
In my view, the pace of Hamlet slows down in Act IV after the frenetic Act III. Hamlet gets to be offstage for a while (being on the boat to England), a welcome relief for the actor playing him no doubt. In the meantime, we hear a lot about Ophelia and Laertes. Ophelia is nuts and we pause to reflect on that. Although Laertes bursts into the palace with the intention of revenge upon Claudius… Read More
