He stabs through the fabric, killing Polonius, thinking he is the king.

Shakespeare takes the old tale of a hero who sacrifices himself in the cause of justice and turns it on its head. Sir Henry Irvingthe first actor to be knighted, played Hamlet for an unprecedented consecutive performances at the Lyceum Theatre in London in

He also mentions a young Fortinbras, who sent him a letter demanding that he return all the properties that Hamlet won by his uncle, who is lying in bed seriously wounded. He advises her not to say that to Claudius and she agrees to keep his secret. Hamlet hears the queen lamenting that the deceased should have become her daughter-in-law, and it dawns on him that Ophelia is dead. Sir Henry Irvingthe first actor to be knighted, played Hamlet for an unprecedented consecutive performances at the Lyceum Theatre in London in Spirit appeared again, and men ordered him to speak, but then the cock crows and spirit disappeared again. I cannot explain why I fell in love with the most flawed character in English literature.
