If only I could get rid of this dead weight, so that I could use all my strength to struggle for my own survival, and only worry about myself,’ I immediately felt ashamed of myself, ashamed forever,” (Wiesel, 111). This is just one example of the internal conflict going on endlessly within himself. When thinking of family, there are good times and bad times. When experiencing the moments that are extremely difficult for Elie and his father, he often thinks how great life would be if he could just get rid of his father’s dead weight. One evening when Elie’s father is very ill, the had of the block approaches Elie and tells him, “‘Don’t forget your in a concentration camp.
72, l. 9) with father referring to his uncle. Anything that Hamlet did against his uncle his mother took that as an attack on her as well. This was her new husband after all and whatever he felt she felt with him. This attack was a way of him hurting his mother but in more of an indirect way. Even though it was not directly against her, it still hurt her and that was still against the wishes of the ghost of his father.
When you say your going to do something, you better do it. Words may indeed lie, but actions always tell the truth. In Shakespeare’s play Hamlet the protagonist Hamlet goes through numerous tragedies that cause him depression. His father dies, and his mother marries his uncle. This stress put on him is what essentially created his tragic flaw.
He was resentful of the circumstances of his father’s death but it isn’t until Act 1, Scene 5 that his anger causes him to abandon who he truly is. He attempts to throw away his hate of deception in order to avenge his father’s death. His obligation bestowed upon him by his father’s ghost, which he does not resist, begins to overshadow his obligation of morality. Despite this, it still takes Hamlet a long time to take action which suggests that he struggles with which obligation he should fulfill. Hamlet is more than devastated about his father’s death.
It is interesting to note that though the majority of Hamlet’s conflict takes place within a single family’s domestic problems, it begins to affect their closest confidants and an entire country. On one side, Hamlet is battling his own inner conflicts as he decides whether to take revenge for his father’s death and weather to do nothing, and on the other, Claudius struggles to keep his treachery a secret, and each of the play’s cast of characters are involved in their own ill-fated plots that ultimately end in their demise. Hamlet spends the majority of the play lingering between ‘doing’ and ‘not doing’ concerning avenging his father’s death. His action or lack thereof is what causes tension between himself and Claudius and everyone
In Hamlet there are many forces that motivate Prince Hamlet’s behavior to change and seek revenge. The leading force for Hamlet’s behavior to change is his mother marrying her dead husband’s brother two months later. In the play Hamlet states “O God, a beast that wants discourse of reason/ Would have mourned longer-married with my uncle,/ My father’s brother, but no more like my father” ( I.ii.150-152). This explains that Hamlet is frustrated because his mother moved on so fast and it seemed to him that she never really loved King Hamlet. Hamlet also claims that “Together with all forms, moods, shapes of grief,/That can denote me truly” ( I.ii.82-83 ).
In act three scene four of Hamlet, Shakespeare indicates that Hamlet feels utterly betrayed by Gertrude 's love for Claudius, both on his own part and on the part of his father. This is plainly evident from the first, as is shown by Hamlet 's line "would you were not so - you are my mother." This declaration of his wish to be rid of her indicates a complete loss of love and respect on Hamlet 's part. That this is the result of Gertrude 's marriage with his uncle is plainly evidenced by the preceding line, in which Gertrude is referred to as "your husband 's brother 's wife." This convoluted way of referring to her emphasises the incestuous nature of the relationship and further devalues it by referring to Hamlet, and not Claudius, as
Like many things, Hamlet is intelligent and honorable, but his indecisiveness is the cause of his tragic downfall. In the play Hamlet, William Shakespeare portrays that Hamlet is very incapable of finishing the task at hand. Throughout the drama Hamlet faces many trials and tribulations due to his late father Hamlet, who was murderously killed by Claudius. His inability to kill Claudius and himself is one grand flaw of an epic hero. After King Hamlets passing, Hamlet entered an unknown state of mind that not only feared others for his wellbeing, but also feared himself.
The Sanity of Hamlet Voltaire once stated that, “Madness is to think of too many things in succession too fast, or of one thing too exclusively.” This statement draws many parallels with William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The main character, Hamlet, is faced with numerous struggles, including the battles he fights in his own head daily. Not only does Hamlet fall apart externally, but his internal, mental health, fails all of Denmark. Throughout the course of this play, Hamlet’s poor mental health is addressed through his soliloquies, his quirky habits, and his inability to handle his issues. The issue of Hamlet’s “madness” brings itself to light most overtly through his “To Be or Not To Be” soliloquy.
Hamlet has heavy thoughts of why he's here when he can go with his father that is lying in a bed of poison. In his existentialism, the wild fight to the throne comprises of disparages and the ability to live. Hamlet said, "For there is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so." This quote relates to the power of existentialism because the power used to think is the same meaning to their own lives. It is conceivable that his poor mental illness comes in so Hamlet does not have to wonder about
