Despite all the reasons throughout the play to show that Hamlet did not in fact love Ophelia, I believe he may have loved her in some sense. Hamlet may or may not have been hopelessly in love with Ophelia but he definitely felt some sort of love for her. Evidence of his love for her is shown massively by how he responds to learning of about her unfortunate death. In Act V, it is revealed that Ophelia had drowned herself, later in the act, Hamlet discovers the truth. Hamlet becomes so distressed he leaps into Ophelia 's grave.
Hamlet has had sex with Ophelia but yet he hasn 't asked for her hand in marriage. In this time area a true man takes a womans hand in marriage and then proceeds to love her. After HAmlet has done his deed with Ophelia he doesn 't ever contact Ophelia after he has told her he didnt love her just for show to prove to her dad they have nothing going on between them. Hamlet is suppose to lead by example and show other men in the kingdom how to act but instead he doesn 't do the proper respectful thing even though he is the prince. He used Ophelia to get
However, she wouldn 't love Romeo as long if he loves her, and wish that he wouldn 't be a Montague. She dozed off at the stars while saying, “O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?”(2.2.35). She wants to know why Romeo is a Montague. At the end of the monologue she state, “Take me myself”, Romeo is delight with what he heard in the balcony.
After reading Hamlet, one is left with the feeling that perhaps Hamlet did love Ophelia, albeit in a strange and even bitter way, but he did. Furthermore; Laertes does not possess a valid source to refute Hamlet’s love for his sister other than the fact that they belong to different social spheres and that he might “deflower her” and then go marry someone that matches his riches. In act three, scene one is clear that Hamlet intent is to hurt Ophelia, he insults her and accuses her of being vain. As a result; there is a part in Hamlet’s dialogue with Polonius before the encounter with Ophelia that might tip the reader as to why Hamlet felt so angry toward Ophelia; “…the insults of arrogant men, the pangs of unrequited love, the inefficiency
In Hamlet's soliloquy in act 1 scene 2 of Hamlet by Shakespeare, the central idea is that life is not fair. This is first shown as the central idea when Hamlet says that he wants to commit suicide, but it is against his religion (lines 129-132). To him, life seems unfair because when he wants to do something, he is not allowed to. The central idea is further shown when Hamlet says that his father loved his mother so much "that he might not [allow] the winds of heaven [to] / visit her face too roughly" (lines 141-142), and his mother "would hand on him as if [an] increase of appetite had grown / by what it fed on" (lines 143-145), and his father dies (lines 148). Soon after, she remarries.
Hamlet 's true love for Ophelia is first displayed in act three when Hamlet blatantly says “I did love you” ( III.i.126). Hamlet tells Ophelia that he does love her but follows by saying he never truly loved her. This just shows the depth of Hamlet 's character in the sense that this new overwhelming sense of love confuses him. If we examine the scene in which this took place it is apparent that Hamlet only took back his profession of love because he knew his conversation with Ophelia was under watch. The concept of “love” is one that is very confusing in Shakespeare 's work.
In Act I Scene III, her brother Laertes and father Polonius tell her that Hamlet will not marry her since he is the heir to the throne, he may choose to marry whomever he pleases. Ophelia believes, however, that Hamlet does truly love her, even though he denied it in the Nunnery Scene. This is an example of how Ophelia is hesitant on making her own decisions but chooses
Sometimes in life people do not portray things how the really mean to. Sometimes people treat the people they truly love harshly. Sort of like how in the play of Hamlet, Hamlet acts like he does not really love Ophelia. But, in the tragedy of Hamlet, the protagonist, Hamlet, really did love Ophelia. This can be seen through his actions toward her before he found out about his father’s death being a murder, pretending to be crazy simply to prove to the king and Polonius, and by his actions after Ophelia 's death.
Iago is making Othello doubt about his own wife making him believe that she is sleeping with Cassio or that she might start having a relationship with him. However, Othello is not completely convinced about all the things Iago is making him go through its mind, his wife infidelity. Knowing now how Iago is, he will keep trying to convince Othello about his wife cheating on him; he will
Regan Garey ENG 432-0100 Dr. Cox 19 September 2016 Love and Madness in Hamlet Although Harold Walley did not pay much attention to Hamlet and Ophelia’s love story in his article titled “Shakespeare’s Conception of ‘Hamlet’” (1933), it is acknowledged that Hamlet “loved the lady Ophelia” and it was through this love that Hamlet “was nearly snared to his destruction” (Walley 784). An age-old question for Shakespearian scholars and audiences of Hamlet has been this: was the love between Hamlet and Ophelia true or was it feigned? Arguments can be made for both sides; Hamlet did, after all, request Ophelia to “get… to a nunnery” (3.1.21). I, however, believe Hamlet and Ophelia did love one another deeply. This love is mutual and runs deep, but it is never brought to fruition due to the choices made on each side; this is, perhaps, the largest tragedy of Hamlet.
In William Shakespeare 's play "The Tragedy of Hamlet" there are quite a few moments that raise questions as to whether Hamlet truly does love Ophelia or if he is just using her. At the start of the play, Hamlet is sending out mixed signals, one second he loves Ophelia then the next second he makes it seem as if he is just using her being rude to her and denying ever loving her. However, throughout the play it is proven that Hamlet is indeed truly in love with Ophelia after all. Hamlet 's love for Ophelia is shown in many ways throughout the play such as when they are alone together and greatly when Ophelia dies. Firstly, in act two scene two Polonius is speaking to Claudius and Gertrude about love note’s and poems wrote to his daughter Ophelia from Hamlet.
