Answer . The USS Greer (DD145) tangled with Germany's U-652 off the coast of Iceland on 4 September 1941. It evaded two torpedoes and dropped depth charges in return. No one was hit or harmed in the "incident" but it generally considered the first firefight between the US and Germany of what wou…ld become WWII.

Polonius and Claudius send Ophelia to talk to Hamlet to see how he responds to her. They wanted to find out if Hamlet truly was mad because of his love for Ophelia. . Hamlet asks whether it is better to live or not to live. Should people suffer with what is going on around them or should they fight…? He says that the only reason he and other people are not committing suicide is because they are scared of what might happen to them after death. . The king's view has changed. He does not believe that the madness was caused by his love for Ophelia . "Madness in great ones must not unwatched go." The king says this because he is not truly sure if Hamlet is mad because of Ophelia or not. He realizes that Hamlet is clever and could be up to something. He could think that Hamlet knew that Polonius and he were spying on him with Ophelia. ( Full Answer )

I think the psychological climax is in the last scene of the play. Throughout the play, Hamlet has struggled with himself about his reaction to the Ghost's revelations and command to take revenge on King Claudius; he has called himself a coward, passed up a chance to kill the King, and blamed himsel…f for not being decisive. But in the last scene, after having a premonition that the fencing match with Laertes might mean his death, Hamlet seems suddenly to achieve a kind of serenity. He says to Horatio:. we defy augury: there's a special providence in the fall of a sparrow. If it be now, 'tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be now; if it be not now, yet it will come: the readiness is all: since no man has aught of what he leaves, what is't to leave betimes? Let be. (5.2.219-224) ( Full Answer )

The incident that gets the plot moving in Hamlet is a ghost beingseen that similarly looks like King Hamlet, who is recently dead.The ghost is seen by Horatio.
The terminology is as broad as a cloud belt. First of all incident could have many meanings, a crime, natural disaster, accident involving a pipe failure, etcf. The term First Responder is usually applied to paramedical services ( such as ambulance crews) and often firemen. The Incident Commander is… an officer in charge who has overall oversight of the incident. It is, of necessity a temporary assignment, but an important one. It should be carefully noted Incident Commander is not a regular rank like Lieutenant, Deputy, sergeant, etc. The term has only come into use in the past five or ten years and probably came out of Homeland Security and one of their branches, the Coast Guard. Just a couple of days ago I saw a vehicle that resembled a regular police car but had markings for Incident Commander, so it is not so temporary as it sounds. ( Full Answer )

It starts out nervous and expectant. Then the thing they are nervous about and are expecting to happen actually does happen, and they are frightened, panicky and excited. It stops, they calm down and then it happens again, and they are all excited and frightened again.
The Ghost reveals how Claudius murdered him and Hamlet swearsvengeance. [It is the inciting incident of the play.]
There's no scene where Hamlet gives Ophelia gifts. We understand that he has, because of the 'Nunnery Scene,' in Act 3, Scene 1, where Ophelia returns Hamlet's gifts. In that scene, she says "My lord, I have remembrances of yours, That I have longed long to redeliver; I pray you, now receive them…." By the way, "remembrances" are keepsakes, sentimental gifts, like a flower for example. ( Full Answer )

In Act IV Scene iv Hamlet runs into Fortinbras's army, and after a chat with a captain of that army realizes at the end of a long soliloquy that if his thoughts are not violent then they are completely WORTHLESS.
The gravedigger scene, Act V, Scene 1 is partly comic, containing the comic gravediggers and their chop logic and also the gravedigger's conversation with Hamlet. There is also a good deal of comedy in Act V Scene 2 with the fop Osric, who Hamlet talks circles around. Polonius is also a pretty funny… character, particularly when he loses the train of his own thought with Reynaldo in Act II Scene 1, and in Act II Scene 2 where he first embarks on a tedious oration, moving Gertrude to explode "More matter with less art!", then attempts to engage Hamlet in a verbal fencing match which he hopelessly loses, then returns later to describe all of the different forms of drama the actors can perform. He is constantly the butt of Hamlet's scorn and humour. ( Full Answer )
The scene may be set at the harbor of the local town of Elsinore, as in the BBC production with Derek Jacobi. Laertes says that his luggage (his "necessaries") are embarked, and Polonius notes that the wind is right for sailing and commands Laertes to go aboard. The harbor setting gives an immediacy… to these comments. On the other hand, many productions set this scene indoors where it would be more appropriate for Laertes and Ophelia to be discussing her sex life. Nothing in the script explicitly says that the ship is actually present where they have their leavetaking. ( Full Answer )
In Scene 2 of the play, (Act 1 Scene 2,) Queen Gertrude asks Hamlet to stay at Elsinore Castle, and he agrees to do so. However, that happens in the middle of the Scene, and not at the end.
It's the skull of the jester Yorick who Hamlet knew when he (Hamlet that is) was a child.
Well, the first time I saw it was the film with Nicol Williamson and Anthony Hopkins. The first scene was all in closeups and wasn't all that impressive, and I didn't care for Horatio's glasses. The second time was the German film with Maximilian Schell which didn't help.
Horatio reports to Hamlet that the ghost was "armed" (wearing armour) from "head to foot" but that "he wore his beaver up" (his beaver was the visor of his helmet).
None. You can play the portion of the Act 3 Scene 1 which consists of the famous speech without any props at all. If you are going to do the whole scene, (usually called the Nunnery Scene, because of Hamlet's repeated line "Get thee to a nunnery!") some kind of prop is needed at Ophelia's line, "The…ir perfume lost, take these again, for to the noble mind rich gifts wax poor when givers prove unkind. There, my lord." Ophelia has to give Hamlet something at this point. That is not to say that a prop might not be helpful. Sir Derek Jacobi, when playing Hamlet, looked at the picture of his father in his locket when saying the line "death, the undiscovered country from which no traveller returns" which makes one consider that line and indeed the whole speech in a different light. But such a prop is not necessary. ( Full Answer )

He is not afraid, but the guards are, and they try and hold him back when the ghost tells him to follow him. He understands that it is his father and listens to what he has to say.
It is a comedic interlude, a bit of light hearted fun to break up the heavy tragic scenes . It's a bit of a dig at Shakespeare's clown- he was fired from the company just before hamlet was written and so Shakespeare includes the skull of a clown (jester) . Has darker undertones- highlights the fra…ilty of life ( Full Answer )
Apollo 13 left for its mission on April 13, 1970. There was an explosion early on in the mission that crippled its service.

It's dark. There are guards around. The guards are really jumpy. The first line "Who's there?" is asked not by the guard, whose job it is, but by his relief. Shakespeare writes short lines for these actors to increase the tension: Bar: Who's there? Fran: Nay, answer me. Stand and unfold yourself. … Bar: Long live the king. Fran: Barnardo? Bar: He. Fran: You come most carefully upon your hour. ( Full Answer )

Marcellus says that there is something rotten in the state of Denmark while Hamlet leaves to meet the ghost dragging the dead body of Polonius with him. Gertrude watches him leave as she reports that Ophelia has just died. But perhaps it would be clearer if we knew which of the three scene 4s in Ha…mlet we were talking about. ( Full Answer )
In Act 1 Scene 2, Hamlet is depressed. "Oh, that this too too solid flesh would melt, thaw, and resolve itself into a dew. Or that the everlasting had fixed his canon 'gainst self-slaughter."
The mood is ominous. It's spooky, unnerving, and mysterious. The sentries are cold, paranoid, and scared.
This is probably meant as a comical scene. Polonius thinks he's a good father, but his plan for keeping tabs on his son is terrible and he doesn't really get what's going on between his daughter and Hamlet. He also has a ridiculously long-winded way of expressing himself. Polonius is being serious, …but we're meant to laugh. ( Full Answer )
She is in Act 1 Scene 2 ("Hamlet, cast thy nighted colour off."), Act 2 Scene 2 ("I doubt it is no other but the main: his father's death and our o'erhasty marriage"), Act 3 Scene 1 ("And for your part, Ophelia, I wish that your good beauties be the happy cause of Hamlet's wildness"), Act 3, Scene 2… ("The lady doth protest too much methinks"), Act 3, Scene 4 (The Closet Scene, her big scene "O Hamlet thou hast cleft my heart in twain!"), Act 4, Scene 1 ("Mad as the sea and wind when both contend"), Act 4 Scene 5 ("So full of artful jealousy is guilt it spills itself in fearing to be spilt"), Act 4 Scene 7 ("There is a willow grows aslant the brook"), and Act 5 Scene 2 ("No, no, the drink, the drink!") That's nine of the twenty scenes--she's on stage a lot. ( Full Answer )

This is Ophelia's madscene. It establishes that Ophelia has gone over the edge but also has the more important action in which Laertes confronts Claudius, and is persuaded by him to take his revenge against the person who really killed Polonius, which would be Hamlet. This scene provides the basis o…n which the final denouement is based. ( Full Answer )
In Act 4 Scene 1, the loony Ophelia sings a song about St. Valentine's Day.
the soldiers are uneasy because it is extremely windy and misty and Hamlet has just seen a ghost of his father.
It lightens the mood after the extremely tense and emotional Act 3 Scene 1, and before we get into the equally emotional scenes around the Mousetrap play.
There is no conflict in this scene. However, the ghost's message to Hamlet sets up considerable internal conflict within Hamlet i.e. To revenge or not to revenge, and if so, how and when?
Hamlet decides to take revenge on his father god that's easy and totally wrong. Hamlet couldn't take revenge on his father because he was already dead, and he wouldn't even if he were alive. It's his uncle he wants to take revenge on, but not until Act 1 Scene 5. At the end of Act 1 Scene 2, he's ju…st heard from Horatio that a ghost has been spotted on the battlements, and Hamlet resolves to go up to the battlements that very night and find out what's going on.

The themes of each scene of Hamlet include the impossibility ofuncertainty, the complexity of action, the mystery of death, andthe nation as a diseased body.
I believe you are referring to the "Get thee to a nunnery!" Scene in Hamlet where he tells Ophelia to go to a nunnery rather than, "be a breeder of sinners," but it is also a play on words because a nunnery was a nickname for a brothel; so he was calling her a prostitute.
There are five scene twos in the play and Hamlet and Horatio talk in three of them. In Act 1 Scene 2 Horatio tells Hamlet about seeing the ghost, but Hamlet does not tell Horatio much, and besides this comes at the end of the scene not at the beginning. In Act 3 Scene 2, Hamlet tells Horatio about h…is plan to "catch the conscience of the king" with the Mousetrap play. This is at the beginning of the scene, too. The reason Hamlet does this is because he wants a second opinion, especially from his friend which is not passion's slave and who he holds in his heart of heart, whether Claudius's reaction really indicates his guilt. Hamlet doesn't trust himself to be objective enough but he trusts Horatio to do so. Hamlet and Horatio also talk at the beginning of Act 5 scene 2. Here Hamlet tells Horatio all about his adventures since being sent to England, including how he arranged for the deaths of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Why does he tell Horatio this? Because Horatio is his best friend, a friend whose judgement he trusts, and there is nobody else who he can trust enough to tell. He has shared everything with Horatio up to this point in the play, so there is no reason why he should stop now. ( Full Answer )
In Scene 2, Horatio tells Hamlet that he has seen the ghost of Hamlet's father walking the battlements. Hamlet is much amazed and insists on accompanying Horatio to the battlements to keep watch. That's what they are doing in Scene 4.
