Tone in Hamlet

Tone Examples in Hamlet:

Act IV - Scene VII

🔒 1

"But my revenge will come...."   (Act IV - Scene VII)

This line seems especially sinister when you remember that Laertes originally intended to exact his revenge on Claudius. Now that he knows the "truth" about Polonius' murder, he's just as likely to kill Claudius as he is Hamlet, making this line dark and foreboding.
