This is encapsulated in Hamlet exclaims, “frailty, thy name is woman!” about his mother’s hasty marriage to her deceased husband’s brother (Shakespeare 1.2.150). In this quote, Hamlet is dismissing all women as weak-willed like he believes Gertrude to be, which affects his interactions with Ophelia also. Hamlet is cruel to her because of this anger he has towards women in general, so when pretending to be mad, he goes “full force in the misogynist rage” when telling her he used to love her, but now she should go to a nunnery (Traub 192). Ophelia can be seen as weak in this scene because she protests little against Hamlet and only hopes that his insanity will end. These crude comments Hamlet says to Ophelia continue throughout the play until Ophelia is being buried when Hamlet asserts that he loved Ophelia.
Ophelia tells Hamlet to receive back the gifts that he has once given her. Hamlet became irritated by she has treated him and says, “Get thee to a nunnery” (3.1.140). After their discussion, Hamlet becomes irritated and mad and believes that she should go to a nunnery. In Ophelia and Hamlet’s love many elements became obstacles to their relationship that made everything fall apart. With the manipulation of her innocence and now love became tied together to her fatal
Her husband was Claudius’ brother, so that act was seemed very weird at that time by the people; they believed that was an act of incest. So it’s understandable why Hamlet was very upset at the first moments, even reading several times the play we don’t know if she knows the plan that killed her husband, but there’s a little information to declare that. Some readers can see Gertrude as a silly women Shakespeare(1514) and citing Hamlet she is a “most pernicious woman’’(p.130) with no loyalty towards his father’s memory and lack of selflessness, which by the way at Shakespeare time were seen as the precise qualities that a perfect wife must possess. But I wonder myself that was attitude was due to the patriarchal
Very shortly after the tragic death of King Hamlet, Gertrude, his wife, immediately remarried to Claudius, making the mourning process quite uncomfortable for Hamlet. Hamlet 's act of stabbing Polonius through the curtain, which occurs almost casually in the middle of the tirade against Gertrude 's lust, seems only to increase his passionate desire to make her see her error in preferring Claudius to her first husband. For Hamlet, however, the problem of seeing a genuine difference between his original father and the man Gertrude has called his father assumes enormous significance at precisely this
Hamlet: “...I did love you once.” Ophelia: “Indeed, my, lord, you made me believe so.” Hamlet: “You should not have believed me...I loved you not.” Ophelia: “I was the more deceived.” For the most part, Ophelia is dependent on the male figures in her life. Although, we do see a flash of her potential self in the beginning of the play. This occurs when we learn that Ophelia has entertained Hamlet without supervision, neglecting her father’s (Polonius) and brother’s (Laertes) advice to not trust Hamlet or any man. Polonius warns Ophelia about Hamlet, telling her “When the blood burns, how prodigal the soul... Do not believe his vows; for they are brokers” because he is concerned about his daughter’s well-being and partly jealous by the fact that she has chosen to spend more time with Hamlet than her own father. As a result, Ophelia’s family tells her she is naïve and that her behaviour is unacceptable.
In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Ophelia’s love for Hamlet ultimately leads to her madness. In order for Ophelia to build her relationship with Hamlet, she must go against her father’s orders considering he strictly prohibited her from seeing him. Hamlet then breaks up with Ophelia saying, “I did love you once,” and then tells her to go “to a nunnery,” causing Ophelia to feel a great amount of betrayal. Ophelia is already heartbroken, and now Hamlet murders her father which was too much for her to handle. The love Ophelia had for Hamlet was one that is considered as infatuation; Ophelia was young and did not know much about love,
Unhae Langis, once wrote that, “Lady Macbeth evokes shame in him [Macbeth] to get him back into the contest.” By constantly shaming her husband, Lady Macbeth holds a great amount of control on the way he sees himself. Macbeth’s actions are ultimately based on pleasing his wife. When Macbeth informs his wife on the witches prophecies, she does not believe that Macbeth is strong enough to do whatever it takes to be the new king of Scotland. In Act I, Scene 5 of Macbeth, Shakespeare writes, “Yet
Imagine a trusted counselor who betrays others by giving terrible advice. In Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare, a similar situation occurs among Friar Lawrence, Romeo, and Juliet. The opposition believes that Friar Lawrence would not be responsible and it would be Romeo and Juliet’s fault due to do the several years of the hatred toward the two families. After analyzing all the information, it is Friar Lawrence’s fault for the death and Romeo and Juliet because the Friar constantly left out valuable information that he is supposed to tell Romeo or Juliet. At one point in the play, the Friar decides to turn a simple plan into something complicated that results in both Romeo and Juliet dying.
He requested a slightly modified tragedy, which would depict the death of his father. He wanted to confirm whether Claudius is really guilty. Ophelia approached Hamlet in private, with Claudius and Polonius hidden behind a tapestry. When Hamlet behaved cruelly to Ophelia, they decided that heartbreak was not the reason. In the course of the play, Gertrude became flustered by Hamlet's veiled accusations and insults for her recent remarriage.
In Act 3 Scene 5, lady capulet tells juliet that her father has arranged the marriage of herself and aris,but she refuses and lord capulet is not all happy about juliet answer. It is evident from this scene that hate is shown to be stronger than love because lord capulet got really mad that juliet doesn't want to marry paris,so he started saying hurtful things out of anger. _even though u love someone anger can overcome like juliet's father when he started saying thing to her. it is clear from act 3 scene 5 that hate is stronger than love, but another way Shakespeare shows the audience that hate is stronger than love is when juliets father grabs her wanting to hit her. A final example that shows that hate is stronger than love is when the nurse goes off to look for romeo and benvolio and mercutio started acting like jerks.
