One of the quotes in the play being, “HAMLET: O, that this too too sullied flesh would melt, Thaw and resolve itself into a dew, Or that the Everlasting had not fixed His canon 'gainst self-slaughter! O God, God, How weary, stale, flat, and unprofitable Seem to me all the uses of this world!” (1.2.133-138) He’s stating the futility of life after the death of his father and taking of his throne. This scene takes place soon after he learns about his misfortune. He’s driven further into insanity when he learns that the man who stole his
Hamlet’s grief is apparent to the audience, as he begins lamenting about the uselessness of life. He depicts his “solid flesh”, urging it to melt and “resolve itself into a dew (129-130). Shakespeare emphasizes his grief - he truly is upset. Hamlet even calls to “the Everlasting”, wishing he had not deemed “self-slaughter” to be a sin (131-132). His cries “O, God!
Hamlet’s suicidal tendencies show he is a weak character. Hamlet shows suicidal a couple of times through out the play. One time is in act one scene two when he recognized that it is against God’s commandments to self-slaughter. Here hamlet is over dramatic and expresses his feelings by thinking about killing himself. “O, that this too too solid flesh would melt” soliloquy (I.ii.129–158) and the “To be, or not to be” soliloquy (III.i.56–88).
He just wants to shoot the dog, because it's very old, and can't eat much. He doesn't even think about how Candy might feel, because that was the only true relationship he had. Carlson has become insensitive towards others from being isolated, and not have a true relationship. Isolation is an abstract thing to think about, but all the outcomes of being isolated are negative ones. In the novel Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, the author suggests that being isolated can negatively change how individuals act and perceive things.
A reader can infer that, although his muzzle might be robust, he finds it makes for a great distraction from his glorious self. Cyrano leads himself to believe the hearsay that he is not worthy of anything, let alone love. His corrupted mind insists he is not, and never will be, striking enough because of his nose. Cyrano’s one true love, Roxanne, has no idea he loves her because he has allowed himself to believe that she could never be in love with his beastly semblance. It is human nature to believe oneself to have worse features and flaws, which in turn leads to self-devaluing or self-destruction, as Cyrano clearly demonstrates.
Doing this really doesn’t help Paul because he is already terrified of his brother. In Tangerine, Paul says,” I’ve already been afraid of Erik, now I get to be afraid of Erik and Arthur” (Bloor 17). Paul’s statement affects his father’s choice. Sadly, Mr.Fisher still thinks his boys are very close, whereas in reality, Paul is scared. If Mr. Fisher had told the truth.
In Act three scene one, Hamlet questions whether he should continue living or if death would be better with the lines, “To be or not to be…”. Hamlet is depressed, which is leading him down the road to contemplating suicide. He states later on that he continues living because it is a sin to commit suicide, and he would rather go to Heaven if the option were open. Another character that fears death is the King of Denmark, Claudius. He killed his brother, the former King of Denmark, which was a sin.
But we can see after he finds out about the truth, he is forced to act because of his morality beliefs. The battle in Hamlet’s tragedy occurs in a dynamic society that is created by opposing forces that contradict with each other and Hamlet is a philosophical prince who blames the court for impunity, injustice, and murder; and all of these problems prevents him from being a part of court’s social life and he becomes depressed. Hamlet’s deep depression effects on his behaviors until he even doesn’t act like prince and becomes mad. His madness effect on his judgment and makes him to become obsessed with the death; even he sees death as the only way to take revenge. We can see that Hamlet explores death in every facet of the play from many different angles and how he develops his definition of death from the materially to morality perspective.
Thus, he said; “Frailty, thy name is woman.” And after that the revelation of his father’s ghost made him mentally unnerved and disturbed him extremely, “He is shaken with terrible disillusionment, he is on the verge of dark dungeon beyond which loom of ominous shadows of utter despair and disbelief in the good of mankind(Umrani;______;41).” Nothing in the world interests him, neither man nor woman. He feels disloyalty and treachery in everyone except Horatio. Other reason is that, “He assumes madness as a means of concealing his actual disturbance of mind. His over-excitability may betray him, but if it be a received opinion that his mind is unhinged, such as excess of over-excitement will pass unobserved and unstudied (Dowden; 1899; 24).” Hamlet was a keen observer of other characters and he had a sharp sense of judging others thus, to fool other by his ‘antic disposition’ he progressed towards his goal and the way he behaved and talked with others would be taken as due to his madness. Thus, he felt
His insightful suggestion is mocked and he is considered crazy because it is easier for the boys to comprehend a tangible monster lingering over them that could be killed rather than to accept “mankind’s essential illness” (Golding 89) which cannot be changed nor destroyed. Simon is isolated from the others because of his atypical insight and he simply “cannot be understood, for he speaks the language of truth to the blind” (Talon). When Simon is killed, it symbolizes the death of goodness in man, much like Christ: both are the epitome of good being destroyed as the consequence of man’s sins. People believe in Satan because they cannot comprehend the severity of man’s evil nature and would rather blame
The characters are not who they say they are. Prince Hamlet appears to be a nice guy, but he is actually a deranged lunatic. Hamlet is arguing with Horatio and Marcellus about keeping him from following the Ghost, his father. "It will not speak. Then I will follow it … what should be the fear … hold off your hands” (I.iv.62, 64, 80).
