Dealing with the characters there loyalty is explained well through their actions, the thoughts that are being spoken upon on; has the audience thinking rather the character is loyal or disloyal. Comparing Laertes and Hamlets loyalty, is very appealing to the crowd. Having loyalty for them can be considered as a good thing, but it can also lead into a negative impact. Hamlet is one of the leading characters in the play, his part that he plays is; is representing him to be a man who is very loyal to his words and vows. Hamlet was the king’s son, and being a son of the king can be a struggle at times.
The connections that are made in Hamlet between Hamlet and Claudius and the similar sources of motivation emphasizes the differences between the two characters. While the motivation is similar for both, the cause and result of it diverges when it is viewed at beyond its core meaning. Hamlet’s sources of motivation end up causing him to have the resolve to go kill Claudius, while Claudius’s motivation causes him to attempt to save himself by praying. The two characters’ thoughts work off each other throughout the play, even if the characters themselves are not aware of what the other is
In Act 3, Scene 3 of Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare depicts the theme of both fear and shock that Romeo feels when exiled. Immediately into the scene, Shakespeare uses personification when Romeo asks, “What sorrow craves acquaintance at my hand / That I yet know not?” (Shakespeare III.iii.5-6). Romeo discusses how sorrow is craving acquaintance at his hand, meaning that he will soon be sad, or suffering. This hidden meaning is presented, however, it is presented as personification because sorrow, an emotion, cannot actually crave anything. Shakespeare sets the tone of fear using this literary device to show how there are harsh consequences for killing Tybalt.
In the tragedy, Hamlet, written in the Elizabethan era, the idea of revenge is showcased by Prince Hamlet, in his pursuit to honour his promise of revenge to his father, King Hamlet.The reader follows Prince Hamlet as he struggles to accept that oppression, force and murder are necessary to avenge his uncle Claudius.Throughout the play, the reader watches Hamlets dignity, sanity and sense of reason deteriorate, as he struggles desperately to bring revenge onto his father’s suspected murderer, King Claudius. In Act one scene five, Hamlet is confronted by his father's ghost and is assigned with the duty of getting revenge on his uncle Claudius. Hamlet's character is enraged and despotic as he considers the nature of his uncle's brutal and deceitful murder, “foul deeds will rise through all earth overwhelm them to men's eyes.”(Act one scene 5.) Here, Hamlet presents himself as decisive and totally committed to the idea of revenge and bringing his uncle to rightful justice. As the play progresses, Hamlet begins to face the consequences of becoming too loyal, and having the responsibility of getting revenge on his uncle.
This play was written by William shakespeare. It would be shortcoming such as pride or greed. Marcus Brutus in the tragedy Julius Caesar has the characteristics of a Shakespearean hero. Brutus’ tragic flaw was his trusting nature. He trusted the other conspirators because he didnt ‘love Caesar less, but loved rome more’.
After reading Hamlet, one is left with the feeling that perhaps Hamlet did love Ophelia, albeit in a strange and even bitter way, but he did. Furthermore; Laertes does not possess a valid source to refute Hamlet’s love for his sister other than the fact that they belong to different social spheres and that he might “deflower her” and then go marry someone that matches his riches. In act three, scene one is clear that Hamlet intent is to hurt Ophelia, he insults her and accuses her of being vain. As a result; there is a part in Hamlet’s dialogue with Polonius before the encounter with Ophelia that might tip the reader as to why Hamlet felt so angry toward Ophelia; “…the insults of arrogant men, the pangs of unrequited love, the inefficiency
Hamlet 's true love for Ophelia is first displayed in act three when Hamlet blatantly says “I did love you” ( III.i.126). Hamlet tells Ophelia that he does love her but follows by saying he never truly loved her. This just shows the depth of Hamlet 's character in the sense that this new overwhelming sense of love confuses him. If we examine the scene in which this took place it is apparent that Hamlet only took back his profession of love because he knew his conversation with Ophelia was under watch. The concept of “love” is one that is very confusing in Shakespeare 's work.
Hawke’s Hamlet is overly angry and less as if he wants her to understand what he sees. Both Hamlet’s are angry but it seems as of Hawke’s Hamlet was overly violent with his mother. In conclusion, Branagh’s hamlet was much better suited to the feel of Hamlet, with better suited costumes, and more appropriate gestures and facial expressions. Hawke’s version, although meant to be modern, made it lose the Shakespearean feel altogether. Personally, it seemed as if it was a foreign film.The modern clothes, and the use of gestures and facial expressions made it seem out of place and it did not seem Shakespearean at all.
Horatio is one of Hamlet 's greatest friends in the play. We know this because of lines I.ii.160-164. We see how Hamlet values his friend Horatio. Even though Horatio is technically a lower class then Hamlet is, he still treats Horatio as though they are on the same level of class (http://www.journals.uchicago.edu)He is the one person in the play that Hamlet puts his complete trust in. We know this because of the following quote “How strange or odd some’er I bear myself (As I perchance hereafter shall think meet To put an antic disposition on)” (Hamlet I.v.190-192) Hamlet puts his trust in Horatio that he won’t tell people that he is faking his madness.
Julius Caesar once said, “I love the name of honor, more than I fear death”. When Caesar said that, he stated that there may be moments in a person's life where their honor is questioned, but in the end, only the person who would die to preserve their good name are truly worth honoring. Arthur Miller use The Crucible to portray John Proctor as an honorable man who made a few mistakes to have people question his honor. In The Crucible, John Proctor is shown to be a respectable, honest, and kind hearted man. There are many ways John Proctor is represented to be a respectable man throughout the play.
Although Hamlet wants to avenge his father’s death, he admits that he is dishonest and weak. “Tears in his eyes, distraction in his aspect, A broken voice, and his whole function suiting. With forms to his conceit? And all for nothing!”(2.2.565-567). Hamlet is starting to break
