  • Appearance Verus Reality In Hamlet - 1,741 words
    Appearance Verus Reality In Hamlet Hamlet In Shakespeare's tragedy, Hamlet, there is a dominant and overwhelming theme that is concurrent throughout the play. Throughout the play, all the characters appear as one thing on the outside, yet on the inside they are completely different. The theme of Appearance versus Reality surrounds Hamlet due to the fact that the characters portray themselves as one person on the outside, and one different on the inside. In the play, Claudius, Hamlet's uncle, appears to be kind, gentle, and caring on the outside, but in actual fact, he uses his loving behavior as a mask to cover up the fact that he is a selfish, mean, and cold murderer. The women in Hamlet ap ...

    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, ...

  • Hamlet - 798 words
    Hamlet Hamlet identifies with an adolescent of the 1990s more than he does with the youth of his own time. Hamlet is immature, sarcastic, and takes action during the heat of passion which is very much like the behavior of the youth in the 1990s. Love, control over action, and the ability to overcome depression are just a few ways to prove maturity. It is obvious Hamlet loves Ophelia in his own way . . . the celestial and my souls idol, the most beautified Ophelia . . . (Hamlet. II, ii, 109- 110), but his way is not mature enough to include trust toward his lover. The trust that Hamlet should have given her was the key of his madness. This madness that Hamlet cannot trust his love with is the ...

  • Hamlet And Gibson - 655 words
    Hamlet And Gibson The 3rd film version of Hamlet staring Mel Gibson varies in many ways to original play, "The Tragedy of Hamlet." The film version starts out with the morbid funeral of Hamlet, the deceased king of Denmark. Joining fellow mourners was Hamlet's son, Hamlet and Gertrude, Hamlet Sr.'s former wife. This conflicts with the play for the first scene shows the ghost of the king while the guards keep watch. In the film, we do not see this scene for a good fifteen to twenty minutes or so. And when the apparition does show up, it is all in one night where Hamlet is present the first time we see the ghost. To keep an audience at a movie, you must follow some sort of flow that keeps the ...

  • Hamlet And Othelia - 1,047 words
    Hamlet And Othelia Ophelia, in this tragedy many see her as just Hamlets lover, a character who is selfish in not helping Hamlet when in need, or just a psycho lover with a lot of problems. What if the story was twisted so that the play wasnt a tragedy and actually turned into a love story due to Ophelia? This is how I would have written it if I were William Shakespeare. Ophelia who was Hamlets love in the play would have recognized the reason for Hamlets madness, taken the situation in to her own hands in order to stay with Hamlet, and would have solved all the problems that makes this play a tragedy. When Hamlet first realizes who has killed his father he starts to plan his revenge. In the ...

  • Hamlet And Phelia - 748 words
    Hamlet And Phelia In his plays, Shakespeare often puts the antagonists in circumstances similar to or resembling the problems of the main character or hero. He does this in order to give us a clear perception of what the characters are like, through contrast or similarity between them. These literary experiments are called foils. In Hamlet, Shakespeare gives us many foils for Hamlet, the main character. One major foil is Ophelia. Hamlet and Ophelia have both lost their fathers. In the beginning of the play it seems that Hamlet is mourning too much and over reacting, but when Ophelia loses her father it makes Hamlets mourning seem subtle. Ophelia is very affected by her fathers death and it e ...

  • Hamlet And The Women In His Life - 677 words
    Hamlet And The Women In His Life When reading Hamlet it becomes clear right from the beginning that Hamlet has a deep relationship with his mother, Gertrude, because he loves and respects her so much. In the opening scene we can see Hamlet and Gertrude engaged in tender, loving behaviour. But as the play develops we see this relationship suffer some great dents. Gertrude's role in Hamlet is to show us how Hamlets insanity develops, her actions are a big part of what drives Hamlet mad. Because when she marries his uncle so soon after his fathers death Hamlet feels she is acting in such a betraying way that he is almost incapable of forgiving her. He has difficulties in coping with his fathers ...

  • Hamlet Hero - 1,234 words
    Hamlet Hero Hamlet is a tragic hero through abandonment. His father's death makes his mood very melancholy. He feels that his father left him and he mourns over his death. His father dies two months ago and he feels that isn't enough time to mourn. To point this out, " But two months dread, nay, not so much, not two;" (I,ii,138) The more Hamlet grieves about his father, the more he dislikes Claudius. To verify this, "She married; O most wicked speed, to past." (I,ii,156) Hamlet's mother gets remarried, and thus Hamlet feels she has betrayed his father by marrying Claudius. In this quotation Hamlet's anger is shown towards his mother getting remarried, " You are the queen, your husband's brot ...

  • Hamlet Minor Characters - 1,263 words
    Hamlet Minor Characters It is reasonable to wonder what Shakespeare had in mind while writing Hamlet. After all, Shakespeare wasn't a philosopher or historian, or even a literary critic. He was a playwright. He didn't leave critical essays examining his work. It is left to us to examine his work and decide for ourselves, if we care to, what Shakespeare was thinking. Did he know that he was writing a drama of deep psychological significance, a play which would eventually be viewed and read the world over, produced many times over hundreds of years, taught in schools, and thought of as one of the world's greatest plays? I, for one, imagine him crossing the "t" in the last word of the play, put ...

    ... or like. Hamlet is shocked that this "intruding fool" should have come to such an end by his hand. Hamlet is excused for this murder , it being done so passionately, however the two that follow it are so treacherous and cold it seems Hamlet has lost his former compassion and truly begun to act willingly in the brutal world that surrounds him. These two murders are of those who would be murderers themselves; Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. On their way to England, carrying letters from the King which include Hamlet's death warrant, Hamlet displays a villainous cunning matching that of his uncle. Whilst his old school friends sleep Hamlet switches the original letters with counterfeits and e ...

    ... o'er me with your wings, you heavenly guards! What would your gracious figure?" The queen, oblivious to Hamlet's hallucinations, cries out: "Alas, he's mad!" (III.iv.107-109). The queen is now convinced of Hamlet's psychosis, as she has what appears to be solid evidence that Hamlet is hallucinating and talking to himself. After Hamlet kills Polonius, he will not tell anyone where the body is. Instead, he assumes the role of a "madman" once again, speaking in a grotesque and ironic manner. The king asks him, "Now Hamlet, where's Polonius?" Hamlet replies with a sarcastic remark: "At supper." He continues, "Not where he eats, but where 'a is eaten." (IV.iii.16-19) Hamlet is clearly disresp ...

Once Laertes discovers his father has been murdered Laertes immediately assumes the slayer is Claudius. As a result of Laertess speculation he instinctively moves to avenge Poloniuss death. "To hell, allegiance! vows, to the blackest devil! Conscience and grace, to the profoundest pit! I dare damnation: to this point I stand, that both worlds I give to negligence, let come what comes; only Ill be revenged most thoroughly for my father."
