Also, Hamlet displays his anguish at the Queen for dishonouring his dead father since “Almost as bad, good mother, as killing a king and marrying his brother” (Shakespeare, pg. 121). In this statement, Hamlet expresses how, through the marriage to her husband’s murderer, Gertrude is a symbol of dishonor and damaging her relationship with the prince. Hamlet is disgusted by Gertrude’s actions and recognizes her not as his mother but the queen and wife of Claudius, the murderer. The respect revered by children to their mother is not evident between Hamlet and Gertrude. In Gertrude’s death scene, Hamlet screams to his mother “Wretched Queen, adieu!”
Hamlet is a very confusing character in the story Hamlet. In this story Hamlet is acting as an insane person towards typical people. This is very debatable because, Hamlet is a person who switches on and off being an insane or sane person. There is many evidence that proves that Hamlet is not actually an insane person. Hamlet is a sane person because of the actions he takes.
From ruining lives to creating new ones, it inarguably takes away what little innocence still remains in men. Betrayal, like many things, may only be seen for the negative impacts it has on life. However, in defiance of the agony, it can show the true nature of men and what they do when they let covetousness and their weak human nature rule them. However, as demonstrated in The Count of Monte Cristo, it is possible to rebound from this defeat, using the knowledge learned from the experience as a way to regain what was
In William Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet, we constantly see Hamlet’s negative view of women and harsh treatment towards them. Hamlet’s relationship with his mother, Queen Gertrude, is rocky after she marries her dead husband’s killer and brother, causing tension between her and Hamlet. Hamlet’s view of women is changed at this point in time because of his mother’s actions. This affects the way he treats Ophelia, the woman that he is in love with and that also reciprocates his love towards her. While he wants to continue his relationship with her, he knows it is not best and is afraid of the outcome.
In Othello, Act 2 Scene III Iago states “And what’s he then that says I play the villain, and know that it will laugh as though he were a clown”. Though he lies the most, with his manipulative ways Iago inspires all of the play’s characters by “using” the trait that is most important to Othello. This trait is trust. An example that is similar to Iago’s growth mindset is in the article “Mindset: The New Psychology of Success” by by Carol Dweck it states “That evening on the way back to your home, you find that you’ve gotten a parking ticket. Being really frustrated, you call your best friend to share your experience and you brush it off” (p. 53) this shows how Iago is when it comes to him being evil.
The narrator is quite the character, being cold hearted and killing an innocent man. One reason that the narrator shows his insane side is the fact he is accusing the readers that they say he is “mad” for no apparent reason. The narrator begins the story with saying “but why will you say that I am mad?” (line 2).
And for hamlet's mother named Gertrude that was married to Hamlet stepfather. She was so in love with hamlet's father. That she was at the burial site crying over his dead body. And then not too much later she ended up marrying the new king of Denmark.
This is encapsulated in Hamlet exclaims, “frailty, thy name is woman!” about his mother’s hasty marriage to her deceased husband’s brother (Shakespeare 1.2.150). In this quote, Hamlet is dismissing all women as weak-willed like he believes Gertrude to be, which affects his interactions with Ophelia also. Hamlet is cruel to her because of this anger he has towards women in general, so when pretending to be mad, he goes “full force in the misogynist rage” when telling her he used to love her, but now she should go to a nunnery (Traub 192). Ophelia can be seen as weak in this scene because she protests little against Hamlet and only hopes that his insanity will end.
After the king’s death, Hamlet lost the respect he had for his mother, and therefore, he also lost any trust he had in her. The loss of respect can be seen when Hamlet says: “Mother, you have my father much offended. ”(3.4) In this quote, Hamlet is referring to how his mother did not mourn his father long enough before marrying his Uncle, Claudius. In Shakespearean English, the use of you is extremely informal, almost to the point where it is insulting to use it when speaking to adults.
