In Act 5 scene 1, page 12 Hamlet says “ I loved Ophelia. Forty thousand brothers could not with all their quantity of love make up my sum. What wilt thou do for her.” In this case, the hamlet has proven to everyone that he is in love with Ophelia, with him saying that if you added a forty thousand brothers their love couldn't match mine. With this Hamlet is finally coming out and finally showing his love for Ophelia. All along hamlet did love Ophelia but he was just afraid to show that he did love her because he was afraid that he would get hurt.
These statements both are saying that Shakespeare knows that he is breaking promises to possibly himself, his religion and others, by loving a married woman. Though he cannot put all the fault onto her, because his vows to love her were only there to exploit the love she was physically giving him. In connection to Shakespeare’s sonnet, Amy Winehouse’s You Know I’m No Good, she is singing about how she is the one in the committed relationship, yet cannot seem to stay loyal to her significant other. Winehouse may love him, but knows that she is not good for their relationship. In her chorus she sings, “I cheated myself / Like I knew I would / I told you I was trouble / You know that I 'm no good” (9-12).
Hamlet and Ophelia “This was sometime a paradox, but now the time gives it proof. I did love you once… I loved you not” (3.1.114,119). Confusion clouds the audience’s judgement reading this quote from Hamlet. His paradox insinuates that he is insane and truly did not love her. Contrary to belief though, this quote was a way to set his “mousetrap” and force her to be in the background of his grand scheme.
Jack is trying to make sense of this new world and turns to his mother for answers; however, her answers often prove unsatisfactory to the boy. (47) Viewing the novel as only a story of psychological trauma and suffering however would be too one-dimensional a view of it. Also something all major criticism on the novel has glossed over or has not delved
Displacement mechanism refers to the situation whereby an object of interest is replaced with another (McLeod, 2013). The fact that Hamlet tries to substitute Gertrude with Ophelia signals his Ego`s attempt to suppress his Id and adhere to the reality principle. The reality principle would advocate Ophelia as a better candidate for him and for the satisfaction of his impulses. Ernest (1922) calls Hamlet`s feelings for Ophelia “obscure” and his “unconscious attempt to play her off against his mother.” Whether Hamlet loved Ophelia or not, remains debatable, however, Hamlet is unable to hide behind the illusion and safety valve that Ophelia provides. His pent up frustration against his mother results in an outburst against Ophelia whereby Hamlet verbally assaults her- “go thee to a nunnery.” Ophelia is also guided by her Id since she desires Hamlet and upon being abused by the latter, she loses her sanity and her will to live, showing the reign of Thanatos, thus, prompting her suicide.
I believe that Ophelia was not treated right because she didn’t do anything wrong and she still lost everyone that she cared about. In DOC C is when Polonius was dying and I think that it was wrong in the first place because if Hamlet would have killed the king right when the ghost came to him Polonius would not have died. When Hamlet is talking to Ophelia he says that he never loved her and that she was stupid to think that he ever did (DOC D). After Ophelia goes crazy she starts singing and while she is singing she says that Hamlet promised to marry her (DOC D). In the end Ophelia did nothing and didn’t deserve how Hamlet was acting towers
Hamlet is showing here that even though he said he was ready, that he also was unsure if he could truly go through with killing Claudius. Hamlet also discloses this when he states, “The time is out of joint. O cursed spite, That I ever was born to set it right.”- Hamlet (1/5 pg. 96). Here he questioned if he truly wanted to kill Claudius and how he ended up with the responsibility in the first place.
They urge Hamlet to stop grieving for his father. Gertrude tells Hamlet that it is normal for people to die (1.2.72-73). She then asks Hamlet why he seems so concerned with death (1.2.75). Hamlet responds in a haughty way. He says he does not seem obsessed with death, but that he is completely grief-stricken.
He then performs the marriage of Romeo and Juliet and even fabricates a foolish plan to keep them together when Juliet is forced to marry Paris. He also leaves Juliet alone in the tomb after she awakens to find her beloved Romeo dead. Friar Lawrence is a moral man, but his hubris leads to the death of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo considers the Friar someone he can confide in, and he tells the Friar of his newfound love for Juliet. The Friar’s excessive pride allows him to agree to wed Romeo and Juliet, hoping he can bring the Montagues and Capulets together, though these families hatred spans generations.
To die,to sleep; No more; And by a sleep to say we end the heartache, and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to, it 's a consummation devoutly to be wished. (Act3 Scene 1 Line 64-71) The speech in Hamlet not only reveals the death but also spreading rot and decay. Hamlet is quite struggling about to live or to die. At the beginning of the play, he is grieved at his father’s death and his mother’s hasty marriage with his uncle. He decided not to die at last.
