    Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

    Definition:

    Hamlet Act 1, Scene 1 Spoken by Marcellus (and not Hamlet as is commonly believed). CONTEXT Horatio spots the Ghost of Hamlet's father approaching. Hamlet calls out to the Ghost and it beckons Hamlet to leave with it. Despite the pleadings of Horatio and Marcellus, who are afraid that the apparition might be an evil entity in disguise, Hamlet agrees to follow the Ghost and the two figures disappear into the dark. Marcellus, shaken by the many recent disturbing events and no doubt angered (as is Hamlet) by Claudius's mismanagement of the body politic, astutely notes that Denmark is festering with moral and political corruption. Horatio replies "Heaven will direct it" (91), meaning heaven will guide the state of Denmark to health and stability. MEANING - Claudius has usurped throne (politics are rotten) - Christian providential fate is corrupted (fickle fate, not all-seeing God in charge) - Rotten could mean, literally, a dead body

    Definition:

    The integral unity of the poem which results from the resolution of opposites, often in irony of paradox, or a balance maintained in an artistic work between opposing forces or elements.

    This push Will cheer me ever or disseat me now. I have lived long enough. My way of life Is fall'n into the sere, the yellow leaf, And that which should accompany old age, As honour, love, obedience, troops of friends, I must not look to have, but in their stead Curses, not loud but deep, mouth-honour, breath Which the poor heart would fain deny and dare not.
