He had not even taken it off on the day his mother was married, and he could not be persuaded to j o i n in any of the celebrations on what seemed to h i m a shameful day. He was most troubled by an uncertainty about the manner of his father's death. Claudius had made it known that a snake had bitten h i m . But young Hamlet had strong suspicions that Claudius himself was the snake, and that the snake that had bitten his father now wore his crown.

The poor man put his doubts to one side when Romeo offered h i m some gold, and sold h i m a poison which he said would kill h i m quickly if he swallowed it, even if he had the strength of 20 men. W i t h this poison Romeo set out for Verona to see his dear 48 49 had sold h i m .
