How does Shakespeare create dramatic
tension in scene 11 ?

Shakespeare\'s Hamlet is full of tension. Shakespeare is very good at creating tension and scene one is full of tension.
Shakespeare makes it midnight, a mystical hour. It could not have been 11:47 when the guards were changing it had to be midnight. Another point is that it is at the gun platform on the battlements of a Castle. This scene could have been set in a range of different places but Shakespeare chose well. Shakespeare chose to set it at a place where tension was common, a battlefield. The changing of the guards was always an anxious time with the guards who are being relived never sure if it is an enemy or another guard coming.
