Hamlet on platform before walls of castle. Full length, standing,
forward, legs apart, facing slightly to left. He holds his right hand
to his forehead. His left arm is extended to right. In his left hand
he holds some paper. Hamlet has short hair and is clean-shaven. He
wears a tunic, black plumed hat, and long cloak. He has both sword
and dagger, and around his neck hangs a chivalric order or miniature.
The identity of the scene represented is most probably the moment
when Hamlet is alone after the Ghost has left him. In his agitated
state, he says that he should record the villanies that have just
been revealed to him.
