In line 66, Hamlet states, “My thoughts be bloody, or be nothing worth.” This emphasis both dark language and tone. He is saying that unless his thoughts are bloody, unless the death of his uncle is blood, there is no worth. The world choice of bloody shows his consistent talking about death and the mysterious mood it sets for the play. The mood as long with the language shows the shift in the story where Hamlet wants to take action; illuminating a new part of Hamlet 's personality. What goes in hand with Shakespeare 's tone is the language used to display his new found aggressive personality.
The deceit that is practiced is imposed on others as well as self inflicted ultimately leading to a tragic ending. In this play, the characters choose to be deceitful instead of being truthful when getting their way. The irony is that deception is used to find the truth by these characters. There are many examples of deceit in the play, most notably by Hamlet, Polnius and King Claudius. Hamlet uses deception
Throughout Hamlet, Prince Hamlet is faced against many situations that question his mental stability and ability to make decisions. His indecisiveness comes from the way he reacts to the situations he is put in and the way his mind presents these situations to him. The most important indecisive moments are Hamlet’s suicidal thoughts, his father’s ghost, and his vengeance to Claudius. When Hamlet is told by a ghost that has a resemblance of his father that Claudius had killed him, he vows to take vengeance and revenge his father’s death. Instead of taking action and killing claudius, he questions whether the ghost was actually his father asking to revenge his death or the devil resembling his father to try to tempt him into murder.
However, Hamlet’s goes through a journey of different feelings towards this motivation. Hamlet is initially ardent to kill Claudius, driven by his anger and hate towards him. For example, Hamlet describes his hate for Claudius when he exclaims, “O villain, villain, smiling, damnèd villain!...At least I’m sure it may be so in Denmark (1.5.107–110). His description of Claudius as the villain shows that Hamlet seeks to commit justice for the corruption that Claudius has brought about. Hamlet continues, “So, uncle, there you are.
Corruption is a disease that over time rots the human way of thinking. In Shakespeare’s famous play Hamlet, Prince Hamlet finds out about his father’s murder, causing him to go insane and wanting to seek revenge. His new motive in life is to seek revenge, which ends up corrupting him and everyone around him. In Hamlet, Shakespeare discusses the idea of corruption in order to show how it can contaminate a person’s heart and way of life. Hamlet faces many dilemmas throughout the novel, in one scene he even debates whether it is even worth it to live anymore: “ To be or not to be—that is the question:/ Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer/ The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,/ Or take arms against a sea of trouble” (3.1.64-67).
The Reason Behind His Madness Hamlet gets himself into an utterly dire situation as his madness is totally self caused and entirely avoidable. He chooses his own fate when he is wrapped up in the idea of destroying his uncle to avenge his father. The thought of carrying out this revenge drives him to actually become mad and ruin almost all of his ties of friendship and his love for Ophelia. Hamlet’s demise, and the demise of loved ones around him, is self-inflicted and self-destructive. In the play of Hamlet, Hamlet, the main character, is the son of the King that has just recently died and Hamlet’s mother quickly thereafter remarried the Hamlet’s uncle, Claudius.
Shakespeare’s use of tragedy in the play “Hamlet” is uniquely rooted in the plot of his art. Nonetheless, characters in the play portray distinctive qualities that either transpose into their demise or prowess in the plot. This way, the use of tragic flaw exists has numerous challenges in the play. Evidently, one may argue that prince Hamlet’s failure to initiate personal action mechanisms and his continuous reflection on the melancholic events is a tragic flaw within the content (Shakespeare William, 24). Probably, these events might have led to his death in the plot.
In the play The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, one of the greatest tragedies written by William Shakespeare, the issue of appearance versus reality is a recurring feature. In Act One, readers realize that lies and delusions are constant obstacles that block the characters from seeing the truth and authenticity. Characters in the play have trouble recognizing the difference between what seems to be and what is. The play emphasizes the difficulties that come with identifying appearance from reality. Lies and deception are woven into all the characters.
In this particular portion, Hamlet is planning how to reveal Claudius so he can partake in revenge. This vengeance fuels into Hamlet’s madness that is conflicting him internally and it is one of Hamlet’s major conflicts shown in the play. Reaves 3 The third conflict shown in “Hamlet” is how Hamlet views the marriage of his uncle Claudius and his mother, Queen Gertrude. He believes this is distasteful and disrespectful to his late father, who has only been deceased for such a short time. Hamlet makes snide remarks to show his resentment of Claudius’s and the Queen’s marriage, “‘But now, my cousin Hamlet, and my son-’ ‘A little more than kin, and less than kind.’ ‘How is it that the clouds still hang
“Haste me to know’t, that I, with wings as swift as meditation or the thoughts of love, May sweep to my revenge” (I.v.23). In this line, Hamlet told the ghost to tell him everything so he can get revenge quickly. Soon after, the tragic hero started to question his sanity on whether to be alive or to die. Hamlet was a victim of a corrupt world and was more alienated and lonely than he was insane. It is obvious at the end of the play, Hamlet is
