Hamlet 5: Act 2 scene ii - 'The rugged Pyrrhus'

Here, Hamlet quotes from the speech which he wants the First Player to recite, and describes a kind of fantasy revenger, Pyrrhus, son of Achilles.
This is a series of fifteen key moments in Hamlet via the iPad app ShowMe. These moments are interesting and important ones, though not the most obvious, and the series avoids such crucial speeches as the soliloquies; for more on those, and much more, go here for our general Hamlet resources.
