And this may relate to why Hamlet professed his madness as the sperate entity, because he lacks the control over it. His madness is guided by what his memory and lack of memory dictates. But it could be argued that Hamlet did possessed a certain means of control over his memory. During the excerpt, Hamlet stated, “I’ll wipe away all trivial fond records” (1.5.99). This quote raises the question of which memories did Hamlet not find trivial and foolish, and worth maintaining.
There are so many talks and thought which come from him are pessimistic. When he falls in love with Charlotte, he think he is incorrigible. And he gives an example about it. When he argues with Albert, he says :” The question, therefore, is, not whether a man is strong or weak, but whether he is able to endure the measure of his sufferings. The suffering may be moral or physical; and in my opinion it is just as absurd to call a man a coward who destroys himself, as to call a man a coward who dies of a malignant fever.
Oedipus talked to Teiresias about his powers and what he knows in lines 110-125, however, Teiresias initially just wants to leave and let Oedipus deal with his own fate. As Oedipus’s patience runs out, he demands “Out with it! Have you no feeling at all!” to Teiresias, which fails to accomplish anything but anger him. Teiresias then tells Oedipus he is the actual murderer of the previous king, causing Oedipus to go into a rage where he accused Creon of being a usurper, and Teiresias of helping him in his task from lines 160-185. After his accusations, Oedipus mocked Teiresias for his blindness, and told him to leave the palace as Oedipus had grown tired of him.
“ Mistakes made by a foolish mind, cruel mistakes that bring on death.” (1406 to 1407.) In this quote, King Creon of Thebes is acknowledging that he has made tragic mistakes, because he wanted to the laws of his state, that he put in place, instead of preserving the safety of his family, which consequently lead to suffering for many. In the play Antigone, by Sophocles, the character Creon makes decisions based on what he feels is right, and refuses to pay attention to other’s advice. His stubbornness and selfishness prove fatal, and as a consequence of his moral deficiency, he kills an innocent woman, and loses his son in the aftermath. In the play Antigone, by Sophocles, Creon’s deadly stubbornness and selfishness in ignoring the pleas and
He obsessed over it. And the third rule of revenge failed because Fortunato did not know why he was being killed. In this dark-toned story, Montresor uses reverse psychology on different people to ultimately fail at his attempt of revenge. In conclusion, Poe’s short story is a tale of failed revenge. While Montresor was successful in his use of reverse psychology to avoid obstacles in his plan, he failed at following his own rules.
We don’t openly witness Hamlet bargaining over his father dying, however we do observe him bargain with his knowledge. (insert quote on him questioning the validity of the ghost.) Hamlet is questioning whether or not the apparition is a virtuous or corrupt and whether he can trust that Claudius is really guilty. Hamlets original plan to create utter madness across the castle and act irrational as to look over the situation. However this actually confused hamlet more and makes him reevaluate the situation.
Arrogance is that of an exaggeration of one’s own abilities or conceited. He believes he is well by ignoring the symptoms and spinning them in a manner to prove they have improved his state of mind. The tone is excitable due to his mental illness and the structure of the work and suspenseful because he leaves you hanging on every line. What will he do/say next? Poe offers a look into a sick man’s mind.
But Hamlet doesn’t talk about his own face . He concludes that if one were absolutely sore about what waited on the other Side of death , Objective in reality would not be worth the trouble , but since the afterlife is an unknown . One might as well continue existing Basically , I suggest Hamlet is not afraid of death .In fact , he suffers from depression or despondency most of the play and he feels that death of the play and he feels that death might be welcome . The main things that Hamlet is afraid of are acting before his action are completely killing an
He supposedly has extensive insight on, “The rules of justice (BLANK).” With that in mind, he seems to lean further away from justice into anarchy. Apollo is dismissing the methods of the Furies completely and establishes personal motives to save Orestes. So despite his knowledge, he ignores the concepts of justice, and its appointed executers, and creates an anarchy where the lack opposition makes him a slave to himself. So in attempting to preserve justice, he created a verdict that, although it was indirectly justifiable, failed to create a verdict for Orestes that was justly
This is proven because, as a Dane, he almost certainly had flaxen hair, and he also had a beard since Hamlet previously mocked him about it (2.2.215). If so, then other lines of the song,“he is dead./ Go to thy deathbed./ He will never come again,” could be interpreted as a suicide note, or an element of foreshadowing (4.5.215-217). This would mean that Ophelia’s use of the word “thy” is reflexive. As a result of her manic state, Laertes, Claudius and Gertrude view Ophelia as non-self-sufficient. Consequently, Claudius orders Horatio instructs Horatio to “Follow her close; give her good watch” (4.5.79).
He tried convincing the court that he was guilty by virtue of insanity. He tried proving that only someone insane could commit such terrible acts, but the jury refused to believe him. They said that he was well aware of the evil things he was doing and chose to do it anyway. Once in prison, Dahmer was isolated. He proved that he could finally be put with other inmates, and this is where his life went downhill (more than it already did).
He had no motive and just wanted to see Othello and everyone else around sink in complete and utter chaos. Shakespeare wrote the ending this way so the audience could have their own view on why Iago did this and where the evil originated from. Reinstating the idea that Iago did not act without motive and did have a reason to carry out the horrific plans. With the term “motiveless malignity” disproven as the main reason for Iago’s evil there has to be a reason for why he is doing these things and risking so much. We see early in the story that Iago has a disdain and unlovable relationship with his boss Othello.
