This is heartbreaking because he was friendly to Othello and welcoming him into his home until he finds out he was sleeping with his daughter. He saw their relationship as unnatural for having different ethnicities. “When Brabantio himself comes to court in an effort to reclaim his runaway daughter, he accuses Othello of having ensnared Desdemona "in chains of magic" (1.2.63) rather than having genuinely won her heart” (Pettigrew). In this quote, Brabantio is telling the duke his claims of Othello bewitching his daughter and using magic to win her love instead of her genuinely falling in love with him. Not only is Brabantio racist but he’s also a misogynist.
Hamlet describes vividly his disgust for his mother, Gertrude, in his first soliloquy in the first act of this play. The queen has just remarried to her deceased husband’s brother, Claudius, in a short amount of time. Enraged by this rash decision of the queen’s, Hamlet shouts, “Frailty, thy name is woman!” (Shakespeare). Hamlet drives himself crazy mourning over his mother’s decision to marry Claudius. In a way, Shakespeare is implying that when women are allowed to make their own decisions and do what they want, it never results in anything beneficial.
His mother Gertrude then remarried to Claudius. Gertrude failed Hamlet as a mother by choosing to ignore his problems. Hamlet could have grieved properly and not have been tempted to murder if society at the time had been more accepting of men’s emotional health. It was Hamlet’s support system and society that had failed him, he was definitely justified to act hysterically. Although Ophelia had the best intentions, she abandoned Hamlet when he needed support and obeyed her father instead.
“As I told you my young lady bade me inquire you out; what she bade me say, I will keep to myself”(Act II.II.148-149). The Nurse has offered to keep the secret of the marriage between the two young ones and she will not tell anyone about it. After the Nursze comes back from visting Romeo she finds ways to not tell Juliet the good news instead she starts talking about other things, the Nurse also knows how delighted juliet will be once when she finds out about the wedding “Your love says, like an honest gentleman, and a courteous, and a kind,...where is your mother?”(Act II.II.55-57). The day of Mercutio and Tybalt 's death she did not think Romeo would do such a thing, and now her thoughts about Romeo have changed instead she thinks Romeo would end up hurting her young lady. She can not do anything about it as Romeo is Juliet 's husband now.
By the end of act 1, we know that Polonius wants Ophelia to protect her “honor” (or what was considered honor way back when) by rejecting Hamlet’s advances. In trying to occupy the role of the hero, Hamlet freaks and scares Ophelia by acting super awkward. Ophelia tells her dad, who thinks she must have done something to make Hamlet act really creepy. Ophelia says she “did repel his letters and denied his access [to her]” (2.1.110-111). Honor can meet lots of things, but in act two of Hamlet it’s mainly about Ophelia’s
This is shown when Juliet and Romeo ask the Friar to marry the couple. The Friar has complete knowledge that the two households have a strong hate against each other yet, he marries the couple in good intention in hopes to heal the hate bond between the households. This plan does not work out because, Romeo (Montague) kills Tybalt (Capulet) which provokes a marriage between Paris and Juliet and the banishment of Romeo. Juliet asks the Friar what she could do in order to cancel the marriage. The Friar comes up with a plan to fake her death to avoid the marriage and send a letter to Romeo to notify she was not dead.
Ophelia is his girlfriend. There is one part where hamlet treats Ophelia badly. Hamlet grabs Ophelia and yells at her and he felt like Claudius and Polonius was watching him that is why he did it. In document C someone was hiding behind the curtain to see what hamlet says to his mother and hamlet thought it was Claudius (his uncle) so he stabs the person behind the curtain and it turned out to be Polonius (Ophelia's dad). When she found out she was going mad.
Macbeth is an evil and selfish person. Macbeth’s wife pressures him into killing Duncan because he looked too much like her father for her to do it herself. Lady Macbeth mocks Macbeth’s manliness when he says to her that he does not want to kill Duncan. When he does, he hears the chamberlains awake and say their prayers before going back to sleep. “One cried God bless us!
One such relationship is that between Hamlet and Ophelia. When Hamlet sees Ophelia at the castle, she has come to return the love letters that he once gave her, but Hamlet denies he ever loved her, saying “You should not have believed me [that I loved you]; for virtue cannot so inoculate our old stock but we shall relish of it. I loved you not (3.1.118-120).” However, Hamlet did love Ophelia, and he did write her those letters, but he pretends not to love her as part of his act. Unaware of the role Hamlet is playing, Ophelia feels rejected and hurt. Eventually, Ophelia’s heartache, along with the death of her father, causes her to commit suicide.
For example, Ophelia’s brother, Laertes, and father, Polonius, forbid her from seeing Hamlet because Hamlet is a prince and is ought to marry a princess; Laertes describes Hamlet’s love to Ophelia as, “Forward, not permanent, sweet, not lasting, The perfume and suppliance of a minute-No more” (1. 3. 8-10). Ophelia obeys to her father and agrees to stop seeing Hamlet, which portrays her as emotionless toward Hamlet. However, throughout the conversation, she resists and insists that she loves Hamlet.
He lives in the shadow of his brother Don Pedro because bastards are lookdown upon. He is an unhappy and bitter man because of the stigma of bastard on him. He trys to foil the relationship between Hero, the daughter of Leonato and Claudio but he get caught. Edmund is the bastard son of Earl Gloucester in King Lear play by Shakespeare. He is jealous of his brother Edgar the legitimate son of Gloucester.
In Act 1 Hamlet says "frailty, thy name is women" (I.ii.146). He is demonstrating his despise of his mother Gertrude 's actions by marrying Claudius shortly after the king or her husbands death. Throughout the play we see that Hamlet has disgust with his mother for her lack of character and strength. Shakespeare uses good imagery throughout the play while describing Hamlet and Gertrude’s odd relationship, which makes the interactions between them two much more interesting. Another relationship is the one between Ophelia and Hamlet.
