On the other hand, when Hamlet discovers Claudius’s plan to have him executed in England, he manages to switch the letters and escape the conspiracy, as follows, “kind of fighting That would not let me sleep... such bugs and goblins in my life... My head should be struck off...”. Therefore, Shakespeare utilises this dialogue to explore the theme of providence and to illustrate a Hamlet, with the ability of counteracting tough
This questioning only led to one of the strongest emotions that Hamlet had to experience and this was the feeling of despair. Hamlet had reached the point of feeling as if he had lost hope and desire, lost a “point” to live, also feeling as if life had no directive. This exact point of Hamlet’s emotional state was observed and recognized in one of Shakespeare’s most famous soliloquy, Soliloquy #4. Shakespeare’s genius mind did so well at demonstrating a sensation of despair that he did so through the use of parallel structure, which is the continuous use of a grammatical pattern throughout your compared items or ideas. Shakespeare does so by writing, “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 to take arms against a sea of troubles… / ...To die: to sleep” (3.1.56-60).
Hamlet sees his father, King Hamlet's ghost, who informs Hamlet that he was murdered by Claudius, Hamlet's uncle. In frustration, Hamlet then undertakes the task to avenge his father's murderer. Emotions holds the greatest power in Hamlet, the tragedy. The reasons being is that Hamlet takes revenge on his uncle, Ophelia commits suicide as a result of her father's death, and both Laertes and Hamlet show their affection for the deceased
The penultimate character who uses Ophelia in Hamlet is King Claudius. Although he has minimal interaction with Ophelia throughout the play, the reader is still able to see how Ophelia is a victim as a result of his actions. Much like Polonius, Claudius uses Ophelia to spy on Hamlet. He uses Ophelia to try and uncover what Hamlet is hiding from him. In Act 3, scene 1, Claudius tells Gertrude, “...leave us too / For we have closely sent for Hamlet hither, / That he, as ‘twere by accident, may here / Affront Ophelia” (Shakespeare 136).
Metaphors are used by Shakespeare to compare Claudius to a deathly creature, while nobody realizes his mal intentions. This is shown when the Ghost informs Hamlet: “But know, thou noble youth, The serpent that did sting thy father’s life / Now wears his crown” (1.5.45-47). The word “serpent” is used for two reasons: Claudius told Hamlet that a serpent
The literal symbolism of poison being poured in someone’s ear is the fact that it is poison must mean that lies are being told. In this case Hamlet lied about his madness and it also led to the death of many of the characters including Hamlet himself. So ultimately words, like poison, can kill and in this case many died. The symbolic symbolism for poison in ears is stated when the Ghost and Hamlet meet and talk about how the Ghost has died, which also sounds like an allusion to the story of Adam and Eve. In Act 1 Scene 5 the Ghost says,“Tis given out, sleeping in my orchard, A serpent stung me.
In the same way, Hamlet is faced with a lot of challenges in a series. It all starts with Polonius, who was spying on Hamlet with his mother in the queen’s chamber and Hamlet stabs him. When King Claudius learns about it, he punishes Hamlet by sending him to exile in England. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are sent by the king to make sure that Hamlet is handed to the King of England for execution, but he learns about it and arranges for their hanging. Then, Ophelia dies out of depression over his father’s death and Hamlet’s behavior, and her brother dies while trying to wrestle with Hamlet.
O cursèd spite,/ That ever I was born to set it right!” (1.5.188-89). As a result of the truth concerning his father’s death, Hamlet feels as though all the gruesome occurrences happened because he only, can fix them. Hamlet receives a new meaning of self-worth. As the play goes on, Claudius realizes that Hamlet has discovered the truth about the Old King and beings to repent. As Claudius repents, Hamlet feels as though it's the best time to kill him until he says: And so ’a goes to Heaven; And so am I revenged.
Another fault in why he fails nobody can fight destiny and expect to win. Yet he still tired and failed it was due to his failure to accept fate he ultimately failed at the end. Conclusion, the reasons why Macbeth fails he doesn’t understand his self-worth which led his wife to take advantage of him and influenced him to do actions unspeakable. The wicked witches and apparitions meddling with his fate by revealing his fate knowing about actions toward it. Then fighting destiny was his major fail because it was his failure to accept fate.
