consciousness must deal with the frightful truth. Therefore, when dealing with Claudius, Hamlet's attitude is extremely complex and intricate. The concepts of death and sexuality are interchangeable in this play. To the reader, it is evident that Hamlet hates his uncle, but his despise of Claudius comes more from his jealousy than from anything else. The more Hamlet criticizes Claudius, the more his unconscious feelings start to unravel.
Revenge is a retaliatory action to the unfairness of either insult or one’s death. In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, the theme of revenge is presented in various ways. Hamlet’s approach to the revenge he had promised to enact against Claudius, in the play, was marred by his indecisiveness, whereas Laertes’s quest for revenge is based on his rashness and impulsiveness. While both Hamlet and Laertes are bent on revenge, their motives and ability to act differ dramatically. Hamlet is clearly a rational thinker in vengeance, as he thoughtfully and hesitantly makes each step.
Out With The Old, In With The New Many of us have heard the line, “To be or not to be,” from one of Hamlet’s famous soliloquies, but what is the meaning behind it? There is no right answer; the line can be interpreted in many ways by the reader. Similarly, directors and actors can interpret “Hamlet” and lines in “Hamlet” in many different ways. This has led to many productions of “Hamlet”, such as Franco Zeffirelli’s version and Kenneth Branagh’s version. Although these two particular versions were shot in the 1900’s, they are very distinct in their own ways due to sequencing, setting, costumes, and character portrayals in the movie.
Words are the greatest poison. They enter through the ear and deteriorate the deepest regions of their victims mind, subjecting them to a prolonged period of intense mental/emotional suffering. In Hamlet by William Shakespeare, this is especially true, as it is a story of familial betrayal and revenge. The poison in this tragedy literally is the poison that is poured into Old Hamlet’s ear by Claudius, but the greater poison is that which is exchanged through words among characters throughout the play. Hamlet is the one most afflicted by this poison as he is the prince of Denmark, the son of Old Hamlet, and is closely involved with developments in Elsinore.
My version of Hamlet would combine elements from Branagh and Cumberbatch’s interpretations with some original ideas. The setting would be similar to Branagh’s version, and it would consist mainly of tracking shots. Hamlet would walk through a maze in his garden where Polonius is also wandering. The camera zooms out and shows and aerial view of the maze. It zooms back in on Polonius as he reaches Hamlet and the scene unfolds.
Although William Shakespeare’s Hamlet and Disney’s Lion King share many similarities, there are also many differences between them. Hamlet is a play about a character's struggles with the opposing forces of moral integrity and the need to avenge his father's murder whereas the Lion King is a movie with a “happily ever after” and a young cub, Simba, who struggles against himself and reality. The Lion King’s similarities to Hamlet are not coincidental, but it is not truly based on Hamlet. The Lion King is loosely based on Hamlet; the differences between the two exceed the similarities.

In William Shakespeare’s tragedy Hamlet, Ophelia and Hamlet allow many things to cause them to behave irrationally. She allows Hamlet to consume her thoughts and everyday life. She does not want to listen to anyone’s advice, even if she knows what they are saying about Hamlet is true. Hamlet and Ophelia have a slight age difference and very different mindsets, therefore Hamlet is worried about many other things besides Ophelia. She eventually can no longer handled the feeling of being denied and willingly commits suicide.
