Additionally, in scene two act III the scene that may have any effect on the direction of the play is the introduction of the Ghost appearing to Hamlet and telling him that Claudius his uncle and brother to his father killed the king father to Hamlet and asks him to revenge his death. This makes Hamlet to distrust almost everybody around him except Horatio his close friend. From the scene, Rosencrantz asks “Good my lord, what is your cause of distemper? you 338 do, surely, bar the door upon your own liberty, if you deny your griefs to your friend.”. Hamlet “340 Sir, I lack advancement.”
I believe that the killing of Claudius was justified but the waiting was not. In DOC F it talks about if Hamlet were justified, in some people’s eyes it was and others it was not. One of the reasons that Hamlet had to wait too kill his was because after the play Claudius was praying and Hamlet wanted to kill him when he was doing something bad (DOC E). In the end I think Hamlet was justified in the killing of Claudius because he killed his father. I believe that Hamlet did the right thing killing Claudius because he killed Hamlet’s father.
Juliet has a fearful thought that in fact the sleeping potion is a pernicious poison and the Friar is trying to kill her. However, she assuages these fears by reminding herself he is a holy man who would not commit such cunning actions. This foreshadows the lamentable death of Juliet, relating to the tone of tragedy. “What if it be a poison which the Friar subtly hath minist’red to have me dead… methinks it should not for he heath still be tried a holy man.” (Shakespeare iv.
This affects Hamlet’s mental health and relationship with his mother as he considers committing suicide as well as blaming his mother to help him recover from his father’s death. Through Hamlet’s anger towards his uncle, depression, and blame towards his mother in conflict with his fears of killing his uncle, having God mad at him, and hurting his mother, Shakespeare explains that people often desire revenge, but feel too fearful to fulfill it. Claudius becomes king after killing Hamlet’s father and marrying his brother’s wife, establishing Hamlet’s negative attitude towards him throughout the play. The king also talks condescendingly towards Hamlet in multiple instances, making Hamlet more angry that his relative does not
In Macbeth’s speech while he is in deep thought on their plan to murder Duncan, Shakespeare uses metaphor to foreshadow their righteous mental demise. When Macbeth is hesitating whether or not he should assassinate Duncan, he was afraid that “We still have judgement here, that we but teach/ Bloody instructions, which, being taught, return/ To plague th’ inventor.” (1.7.8-10). The “inventor” was referring to Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, Macbeth is afraid that the “judgment” and “bloody instructions will hurt them.
From the moment Hamlet saw his dad he was driven to do anything to avenge his father. Although during the movie directed by Franco Zeffirelli he made Hamlet act complacent and apathetic towards everything, it was like he was just "going through the motions". For example during Claudius ' prayers and his hopes for forgiveness, Hamlet patiently waits around the corner plotting to kill him. The lines state, "Now might I do it pat. Now he is
Hamlet does delay his task to avenge his father but, he does at the right time and he does it properly. Before killing Hamlet needs to confirm if Claudius is a murderer and if he can trust a ghost. In the beginning of the play, Hamlet is told by the ghost of his father that Claudius killed him, shortly after the ghost tells Hamlet to avenge his father’s death. Hamlet believes the ghost and considers killing Claudius but, Hamlet double checks himself to make sure Claudius actually did kill the king by exposing his guilt after he sees a play similar to Claudius’ situation. This all is to make sure that Claudius actually killed
I think that because, at the end he got his revenge and killed him, it might’ve took a long time to do it and it did cost people’s lives, but he got his revenge. In document F it says, “For God only can take vengeance of the sole,” In document e, it says, that Claudius, started praying because he knew that hamlet knows about his murder. At the end of his prayer he says, “My words fly up, my thoughts remain below: Words without thoughts never to heaven go.” In document A, it says that the killing of Claudius is justified because, Claudius lied about killing the old king, Claudius also stole his brother’s wife, life, and his crown.
Juliet’s tragic downfall began when Romeo killed Tybalt, banishing himself to a lifetime of separation from her. Emotionally demolished by his sentence, Romeo says, “ Ha, banishment? Be merciful, say ‘death’”, indicating that Romeo would rather die than be banished from Verona. Romeo’s banishment by the Prince then causes Juliet and the Friar to come up with the idea to drink a potion that portrays Juliet to be as still as death. Once Romeo believes that Juliet is no longer alive, he makes another rash decision to bribe an apothecary for poison.
The definition of a tragic hero according to csus.edu is ‘‘A tragic hero is a person of noble birth with heroic or potentially heroic qualities. This person is fated by the Gods or by some supernatural force to doom and destruction or at least to great suffering. But the hero struggles mightily against this fate and this cosmic conflict wins our admiration.’’ When Hamlet is faced with the quest to seek his father 's vengeance he does not act on impulse. Hamlet decides the make a play reacting the death of his father that was described to him by his father 's ghost this can be seen as Hamlet seeking the truth before making his decision which leads to his outcome.
It is then Hamlet realises that everything he is currently doing is wrong and is telling him to hurry on with his revenge plan. Another example is when we see Claudius praying at a alter and Hamlet behind a pillar debating whether or not to kill Claudius when he says this “So is it really revenge for me if I kill Claudius right when he is confessing his sins in perfect condition for a trip to heaven? No away sword and wait for a better moment to kill him.” (Shakespeare 193) Hamlet does not want Claudius to go to heaven but instead for him to go to hell.
Making mistakes, learning from them, and then using them may seem confusing, but in Daniel Dennett's first tool for thinking, “Using Your Mistakes”, is just the beginning of a good teaching. In paragraph 1 Mr. Dennette states that “The point of a mistake is to learn from it and not make it again”. For instance, if I was to help a friend out by giving them answers to a homework assignment, but got in trouble by my teacher and received a zero for the whole assignment. I would then know the mistake that was made and hopefully learn from my actions because of the consequence that had taken place. In addition to, paragraph 3 mentions that “ We tend to learn from and error”, which is later explained as biologically primary areas of knowledge.
