  • A Worn Path - 1,078 words
    A Worn Path Annonymous The search for justice causes one to act blindly through anger, rather than through reason. In Shakespeare's Hamlet, young Fortinbras, Laertes, and Hamlet were all looking to avenge the deaths of their fathers. They all acted on emotion, and this led to the downfall of two, and the rise to power of one. Since the Heads of the three major families were each murdered, the eldest sons of these families swore vengeance, and two of the three sons died while exacting their acts of vengeance. The central plot of Hamlet concerns a search for justice. There were three major families in the Tragedy of Hamlet. These were the family of King Fortinbras, the family of Polonius, and ...

  • Best Hamlet Paper Ever - 1,882 words
    Best Hamlet Paper Ever One of the most unique things about the play Hamlet (with Hamlet playing the main character) is the way relationships between the main and lesser characters have not changed from Shakespeares time period in which he wrote this play to the modern dilemmas of today. The character Hamlet relates through individualism of self to others in the play and Shakespeare uses this confusion of self and nature thus assuring many types of readers who can relate to his Hamlet characterization. Hamlet portrays himself with all his human flaws, but it is this humanity that makes him distinctive from everyone else in the story. In addition, all of Hamlets waking hours are preoccupied wi ...

  • Book Report On Hamlet - 487 words
    Book Report On Hamlet Something was definitely rotten in the state of Denmark! The king was dead of a terrible murder, a betrayal from his own brother, and young Hamlet was enraged with a sense of needing to seek revenge, which came with his father's passing. You might think that this sort of revenge would come in the form of a crime of passion; something that would be quick and bloody. This was not the case in Shakespeare's Hamlet, as the young prince unexpectedly drew out his plans for revenge over a large amount of time due to his own weakness of numbness. Hamlet was full of big ideas and intentions, but he failed to act and to carry out the deed of revenging the death of his father by ki ...

  • Character Analysis Of Polonius - 715 words
    Character Analysis of Polonius Although Polonius is not a main character in Hamlet, he serves to reinforce the pattern of corruption, and demonstrates the social and moral decay of Denmark. His devious ways show the audience that he is one of many characters who lack conviction and integrity. Throughout Hamlet Polonius is a hypocrite who looks out for his own interests, and betrays those he should be loyal to. These aspects of his character are revealed in his relationships with the King, Ophelia, Laertes, and Hamlet. Polonius can be described as Janus-faced. Janus was a god from Roman mythology who had two faces, each looking in opposite directions. Similarly, Polonius is two-faced in his i ...

    Claudius & Hamlet Claudius & Hamlet, would the inhumane and sick character please step forth. Upon reading the sampling of "Hamlet" criticisms in John Jump's "Hamlet (Selections)" I disagreed with a few of the critics, but my analysis was the most different from Wilson Knight's interpretation. He labels Hamlet as "a sick, cynical, and inhumane prince" (Jump, 124) who vitiated a Denmark which was "one of healthy and robust life, good-nature, humor, romantic strength, and welfare." In his book, The Wheel of Fire, he continues this line of thought to conclude that Claudius is "a good and gentle king, enmeshed by the chain of causality linking him with his crime. And this chain he might, ...

  • Claudius: A Man Masked In Betrayal And Murder - 400 words
    Claudius: A Man Masked In Betrayal And Murder Claudius A Man Masked in Betrayal and Murder What could be worse than killing your brother? Marrying his wife right after! Claudius is the shadiest character in Act I of Hamlet. Claudius had poured the juice of a hebenon (henbane; a very poisonous plant) into his brother's, Hamlet Sr.'s ear. Hamlet Sr. died quickly but was "doomed for a certain term to walk the night." Claudius then hurriedly married Gertrude and became king. Hamlet knows none of this however, yet already holds certain contempt for his step-father/uncle. In scene 2, Claudius gives a very sly speech, side-stepping the fact that he is in the middle of a very incestuous relationship ...

  • Compare And Contrast Macbeths And Hamlets Madness - 433 words
    Compare and Contrast Macbeths and Hamlets Madness Madness can be described as an internal flaw that both characters, Hamlet and Macbeth, possess. Although their madness is different in some aspects, it can be said that it played a key role in the downfall of both of these tragic characters. In the following essay I will attempt to describe how Hamlets madness and Macbeths madness are similar and how they contrast. Prince Hamlet seemed to be in a state of madness ever since the demise of his father, King Hamlet. One example that could prove his madness is when Hamlet has an in-depth conversation with his dead fathers ghost. This however may not have been a hallucination because of the two oth ...

  • Hamlet - 1,690 words
    Hamlet One of the most unique elements of the Hamlet character is that he is so human. Many types of readers can identify with him. Hamlet is imperfect, and he is fretful. Hamlet has human properties, and it is his humanity that I intend to explore. Indeed it is these human qualities and imperfections that make his story so tragic. Another tragic part of the play is the plays irony. Irony is an important tool in the hands of the playwright to achieve both comical and/or dramatic effect. There is usually little reason for a tragedy to be funny, so Shakespeare has used this tool to add more tragedy to the play. I will investigate the nature of this irony. Also, I will investigate the types of ...

  • Hamlet - 305 words
    Hamlet Shakespeare's Hamlet is the pinnacle of Elizabethan tragedies because Prince Hamlet embodies the role of the universal victim. Hamlet encounters adversity in nearly every area of his life, and these difficult circumstances cast a dark shade over his natural genius. The character of Hamlet is elevated above countless other similar tragic heros because of Hamlet's awareness of the moral complexities and theological issues involved in the revenge plot. Hamlet's display of distraction is curious because his actions alone are not that of a madman, yet his private thoughts and musings suggest that he is insane. The source of this distraction may lie in his aboriginal addiction to thought an ...
