I'm not sure what your question is, but it looks like you might be seeking an interpretation of Ophelia's lines in Act 2, Scene 1. In this scene, she is reporting to her father about Hamlet's behavior towards her. She tells him that Hamlet came to her with his clothing all undone, pale, with his knees shaking. Ophelia says that he looked like he had just seen the horrors of hell and has been freed from it to tell others of how horrible it was. This is one scene that convinces Polonius that Hamlet has merely gone mad because he is in love with Ophelia.
