  • Hamlet - 720 words
    Hamlet He was great man and prince, with great potential and virtue. Another person whose virtue parallels that of Hamlet was Laertes, the son one of the Courtiers in Claudious's court. Both of these men also share the trait of impulsiveness, achieving spontaneous reactions when angered. In Laertes this revealed in his return to Ellisenore after his father's death. He returns with fire in his veins and revenge seething from his breath ready to kill the king. "To Hell, Allegiance! Vows, to blackest devil!". In Hamlet this is seen in his rash reaction in stabbing Polonious with his rapier. In thinking it was the king behind the aras, he lashes out and kills Polonious. In both cases the men hav ...

  • Hamlet - 1,435 words
    Hamlet In Shakespeare's Hamlet, the tragic hero reveals his inner conflicts and introspective attitude in each of the lengthy soliloquies in the play. Hamlet is a static character whose thoughts never dramatically change. Each soliloquy delves further into Hamlet's motivations, or lack thereof, and psyche. Each soliloquy, each slightly different, is all united by vivid imagery, introspective language, and discussion of Hamlet's delay of action. The first soliloquy serves to 'set the stage' for the rest of Hamlet's thoughts, feelings, and actions. It is here that Hamlet first reveals his hatred for his mother's incestuous marriage to his uncle, Claudius, his low self-image, and his great reve ...

  • Hamlet By Shakespeare - 581 words
    Hamlet By Shakespeare The first Soliloquy of Hamlet appears in act one scene two. It falls after Claudius and Gertrude announce their marriage to the kingdom, and before Horatio and Marcellus tell Hamlet about seeing the ghost. Shakespeare loads this Soliloquy with stylistic devices that help introduce themes, show conflict, show character, and set the tone. We first see a metaphor comparing Hamlet's flesh to melting ice. This indicates how depressed he feels. He wishes he could melt away and die, but he doesn't kill himself because it is against the law of the church. The apostrophe "O God, God," along with the personification of the world show the desperation and sadness of Hamlet. "Tis an ...

  • Hamlet Play - 1,074 words
    Hamlet Play To die, would be to abandon this garden suffocated by weeds. To take ones life, is to alleviate turmoil from the heart. Although extremely tempting, Hamlet cannot, therefore will not commit suicide. For he believes God "had... fixed / his canon gainst self-slaughter!" (line 131-132 p.166). With this in his mind he drags his burden deeper and deeper into a pit of agony. Inflicted upon him were the excruciatingly painful blows of his fathers death and the incestuous marriage of his mother and uncle. Hamlet held his father with high esteem calling him an excellent king and Hyperion. He resents his "more than kin, and less than kind" (line 65 p.165) stepfather, exclaiming, "So excell ...

  • Hydrothermal Vents - 608 words
    Hydrothermal Vents Imagine being on the ocean floor. You are in total darkness and in unbearable pressure. You would think that in this freezing environment there is no life, but there is.
