The ghost said to him “revenge his foul and most unnatural murder” the ghost of the old king wanted Hamlet to seek revenge on claudius for his ‘unnatural” murder of the kind. Hamlet at first was a little bit weary of the ghost but when the ghost told Hamlet that he was stuck in purgatory until revenge was sought out, hamlet was on board. Hamlet adored his father so when the ghost asked him to seek revenge, and when it told him to murder claudius it's all he focuses on for the majority of the novel. The effect seeking justice had on Hamlet was profound. He became obsessed with finding a proper way to kill the king.
Not trusting many people in the kingdome for the most part of the play, the reader rarely sees Hamlet's true feeling explained to another person. In act five Learties challenges Hamlet to a duel to revenge his sister's death which he blames on Hamlet. Once hearing the news Horatio become greatly concerned for Hamlet's well-being, and tries to convince him to say he is not fit to dule. “ You will lose my lord--”...“ If your mind dislike anything, obey it. I will forestall their repair hither and say you are not fit.” (5.2.223) Not listening to Horatio, Hamlet duels with laertes and is struck with a poisoned blade.
In the play Romeo and Juliet written by Shakespeare he communicates that virtue and vice relies on your point of view. People depend on what they see and feel, when people do something or play something depending on who you are, and how it affects you, makes your point of view different. Perhaps you just won the N.B.A championships, you and your team are ecstatic but the other team may be heartbroken. In the play, Romeo kills himself because he thinks Juliet, his wife, is dead. The reader knows Juliet is not actually dead but just drank a potion to portray she is dead.
(for reals this time) Juliet want to be with her husband “Yea, noise? Then I’ll be brief. O happy dagger, this is thy sheath. There rust and let me die. “(5.3) It show’s how now that romeo is dead because he didn’t get the memo that she was faking it, (because he was exiled) he killed himself.
Another instance is after Romeo kills Tybalt, Friar Lawrence explains the positive to his banishment and points out “A gentler judgement vanished from his lips: / Not body’s death, but body’s banishment” (3.3.11-12). Shakespeare uses the words body’s death as a way to foreshadow what will happen if they end up loving each other and prioritize their love over their well being. The words body’s banishment shows how the souls of Romeo and Juliet are exiled from their bodies because they can not be together. Thus, Shakespeare uses foreshadowing to show the death of Romeo and Juliet, even though the audience knows and proves that they choose love over life Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy that has started to become present in teens lives. The play shows that you should not put love over your well being as there will be fatal
The big question is “Are Hamlet’s actions justified.” Well Hamlet was both justified and not justified. Some things he did were for a reason others were just possibly because he was pretending to have gone insane. Examples of this are the way Hamlet treated his own mother, Gertrude, and the way he treated his love Ophelia, one thing he is not justified in is delaying the murder of his uncle and his mother’s new husband Claudius. But the thing that is justified is actually killing Claudius. Hamlet is not justified by treating Gertrude the way he did.
This contradicts with the lovesick Romeo and levelheaded Benvolio, who don't doubt true love exists. Mercutio is a hit with the public, but dies relatively early in the play, why would Shakespeare kill such an important character? A diversity of reasons could be found for this, but first you have to know who Mercutio really was. Mercutio first enters the stage together with Romeo and Benvolio, in act 1 scene 4 the talk about the party Romeo wants to go to, the reason for this is because of love. Mercutio here expresses his disapproval towards love in the famous Queen Mab speech.
During the interaction based off realization you can see that Ophelia probably loved Hamlet but if it wasn’t for being under the supervision of her brother and father, she might have been able to influence Hamlet and this would lead to a change in the play. On the other hand, Hamlet accuses Ophelia of faithlessness, of whoring. He tells her to get her to a nunnery, a statement that implies that she is no better than a whore. This can be justified in Act 3, Scene 1 “Get thee to a nunnery. Why wouldst thou be a breeder of sinners?
When Hamlet’s father returns to Denmark as a ghost, he tells Hamlet that Claudius murdered him. Hamlet listens closely, and when his father tells him to take revenge for his death he says “Haste me to know ’t, that I, with wings as swift, as meditation or the thoughts of love, may sweep to my revenge.” This shows Hamlet is eager to take revenge for his father’s death. He becomes obsessed, trying to avenge his father’s death. This causes him to inadvertently kill Polonius, an innocent victim. Horatio shows his loyalty towards Hamlet.
In Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 148”, the speaker is clearly a man that is in love, but seems to think of love in a negative way. He feels that love itself is tricking him and clouding his judgment. He sees his love as far better than everyone else sees her to be. He states, “O me, what eyes hath love put in my head/ Which have no correspondence with true sight!” (1-2). This shows how the speaker thinks he is being robbed of the sight of reality.
In William Shakespeare 's play The Tragedy of Hamlet Prince of Denmark there are a variety of different characters with similar motives for their actions. Most of the characters’ motives stem from love, whether it be lust, family ties, romance, loyalty, or devotion. Hamlet, out of devotion for his father, promises to get revenge for his murder when his ghost tells Hamlet that Claudius killed him, and that he wants Hamlet to kill Claudius for revenge. Ophelia’s family ties to her father, Polonius, make her betray the love of Hamlet. Horatio’s loyalty makes him the only character that Hamlet trusts.
