Hamlet is scripted a role from his father that he acted out knowing he could help himself. This shows Hamlet was constantly looking for self-help. Hamlet would have stopped to analyze the deed he had been given if he was not mentally affected in some way. When Hamlet is given the news by his father’s ghost the last words that Hamlet said are “So uncle, there you are. Now to my word.
Hamlet’s speech reveals his in depth on the idea of suicide and death. He is passionate in finding a solution to end his misery to kill Claudius. He advices himself that he should calm down, confront to his mother of what Claudius has done wrong and ensure that he does nothing to hurt her. Hamlet feels empowered and motivated that the next time he encounters Claudius, he will kill him and avenge his father’s death. In my opinion, Hamlet is a young man that deeply loves his father and is severely affected by his death.
Everyone became more cautious and many had lost the trust of foreign societies, even society itself. This concept is modeled by William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, where immense adversity shapes the character of young Hamlet in his search for vengeance in his father’s name. In the play, Hamlet is first confronted with adversity when a ghost explains that his father was murdered by his uncle. This situation shifts his identity and forces the already mourning Hamlet into a deep depression where he is hell bent on revenge. At the start of the play, Shakespeare introduces Claudius as a wise and confidant ruler with no apparent flaw.
Hamlet’s incapability to avenge his father is shown throughout the soliloquys, and shows the feeling behind the troubled prince. The “to be or not to be” soliloquy improves my understanding of Hamet’s failure as a revenger by seeing his feelings about death. What hamlet expresses throughout this soliloquy, is that he sees death as an escape and compares it to sleeping; which in fact is a very peaceful and restful matter, which he then compares to “the heartache and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to” during life. Hamlet shows throughout the soliloquy that he wants to kill himself, he’d much rather die but clearly cannot. In the soliloquy he says “Thus conscience does make cowards of us all”.
.“If thou didst ever hold me in thy heart…Absent thee from felicity a while…and in this harsh world draw thy breath is pain…to tell my story.” Hamlet asks his friend to tell his story after he actually dies. He wishes for this to happen so that people know the real story and remember. All and all, Horatio is very important throughout the play and is a great friend to Hamlet,
While Hamlet is self-conflicting with plans, Laertes is taking action immediately after he knows of his father’s murder. At the end of the play, the similarity between Hamlet and Laretes can be observed by the viewers as Hamlet says “I'll be your foil, Laertes: in mine ignorance your skill shall, like a star i' the darkest night, Stick fiery off indeed" (V.ii.5-7). Hamlet knows that they will be compared to one another in the future. Although Laertes is found to be greater for his courage to take action, Hamlet’s ability to make rational thoughts and planning has been highlighted from this
Also his facial expressions are very important. Shakespeare made Macbeth’s character purposely complex to keep the audiences attention. At the beginning of the play Macbeth is loyal and reliable. Macbeth’s true personality is revealed when he lies to Banquo (his oldest and dearest friend) Banquo says ‘I dreamt last night of the three weird sisters’ and Macbeth replies ‘I think not of them’. Here Macbeth has lied because he has been to see the weird sisters earlier in the play.This now tells us that his loyalty is deteriorating as he prepares himself for the murder of King Duncan.
Hamlet ponders what an improvement his life would be without his grief. Although he is not fully willing to meet his death because he feels as though he has duties to fulfil and revenge to seek out, when he questions, “Who would bear the whips and scorns of time” ( III, i, 70). Hamlet logically inquires the pros and cons of suicide and what affects it may have on him and others. He apprehends that he must not let culpable Claudius get away with his father’s murder, consequently allowing his mother to be married to a
In this essay, I am going to explain how Shakespeare manages to sympathize with these protagonists. During the play of Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare manages to effectively describe the tragedy of their relationship. He achieves this by creating sympathy for the two protagonists, Romeo and Juliet, which consequently affects the audience of the play. At the beginning of the play the audience is told that it will all end in disaster. This is emphasised with the fact that the two young lovers foreshadow their own death.
His change of attitude grows confusing as he professes his dear love after her awful death, “ I loved Ophelia. Forty thousand brothers could not with all their quantity of love make up my sum. What wilt thou do for her?”(5.1.255-257). After all the hatred consumed for Ophelia, Hamlet feels the need to show his love and care for her only after she is dead. Hamlet’s web of lies causes a dent in his portrayal towards society and the audience.
