As one understands Hamlet more and more, it is witnessed that Hamlet does not posses any of those qualities. The feelings between Hamlet and Ophelia never remains mutual because Hamlet doesn’t love Ophelia while Ophelia does in fact love him. Hamlet has no respect towards Ophelia whatsoever, especially when he tells her to her face that he never loved her and that she needed to get herself to a nunnery. It is also strongly shown that Hamlet doesn’t love Ophelia when Hamlet killed Polonius and didn’t even show any grief. Hamlet hurt Ophelia by taking away the only person that actually loved her at that moment.
For example, Ophelia’s brother, Laertes, and father, Polonius, forbid her from seeing Hamlet because Hamlet is a prince and is ought to marry a princess; Laertes describes Hamlet’s love to Ophelia as, “Forward, not permanent, sweet, not lasting, The perfume and suppliance of a minute-No more” (1. 3. 8-10). Ophelia obeys to her father and agrees to stop seeing Hamlet, which portrays her as emotionless toward Hamlet. However, throughout the conversation, she resists and insists that she loves Hamlet.
“The pangs of despised love” (3.1.72). In The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark by William Shakespeare Ophelia is being emotionally abused by Hamlet and the people she cares about. This abuse causes her to feel fragile, and ultimately leads her to commit suicide. Love can lead to many different passages in life. Ophelia is a gentle, obedient person, who has very limited options as a woman, other than to be docile.
On the contrary, Hamlet feels romantic love for Ophelia. His love is supposedly so passionate that “Forty thousand brothers/ Could not with all their quantity of love” (V, i, 275-276) care for her as much as he does. Both Laertes and Hamlet carry their love to Ophelia’s grave. While at the grave, Laertes shows his brotherly love for Ophelia once more when he stands inside her grave and exclaims “Hold off the earth awhile,/ Till I have caught her once more in mine arms.” (V, i, 253-254) Laertes and Hamlet confront one another in a grapple. In this instance, Hamlet does not think about the consequences, instead he defends himself and fights Laertes.
Have you been in love? Love does not have any shape, It does not look at social classes, skin color, even if your parents do not like you to be with her or him, but sometimes those are small obstacles that do not allow us to be with the person we love. A clear example, can be Ophelia and Hamlet in the play called Hamlet written by William Shakespeare. This pair of characters were in love with each other, but, Polonius, Ophelia's father, was against this relationship because he thinks Hamlet is playing around with her. As many relationships, everybody has parallel and contrast things.
When they are aware of Hamlet’s feelings towards Ophelia they are convinced that he would just use her for her virginity then break her heart. Ophelia is torn because she is sure in her heart that Hamlet loves her, even though she could never be his wife. Being raised with just men in her life she has no idea how to go about dealing with Hamlet and his mixed feelings. Ophelia starts to go mad dealing with the problem of choosing between her father’s wishes and her true
From understanding the interaction between Hamlet and Ophelia it’s clear that Hamlet loved Ophelia which is evident in the play from his own words "I loved Ophelia. Forty thousand brothers, if you added all their love together, couldn't match mine" (Act 5). This confession was said by him when the play was nearly to end but for most of the play Hamlet expressed bashful words towards Ophelia. Hamlet treats Ophelia like she did not count or in other words he treated her like a doormat. During the interaction based off realization you can see that Ophelia probably loved Hamlet but if it wasn’t for being under the supervision of her brother and father, she might have been able to influence Hamlet and this would lead to a change in the play.
Women have been dominated and manipulated by men for many years. In Hamlet, the character Ophelia was living under the demands of her father. She didn’t actually decide anything for herself. She obeyed every demand she received from her father Polonius because for her it was a form of loyalty. When Polonius was killed by Hamlet, she became vulnerable since she no longer had the person who decided everything for her.
This is another example of Hamlet abusing Ophelia to solidify his antic disposition. He loves Ophelia however he still insults her and pushes their relationship further apart, with no regard for anyone but himself. Ophelia loves Hamlet and she know thinks that their relationship is over, this puts a lot of strain of her emotion state possible too much. Hamlet emotionally abuses Ophelia for his own personal gain, Ophelia ultimately blames herself and she descends into
Living in a world that only he matter, Hamlet overshadowed everyone. After the brutal death of his father, something awoke in Hamlet and love turned into sadness. Throughout the play by-----, people talked about Hamlet’s obsession with Ophelia. In reality, the obsession was making it seem like Hamlet’s problems were because Ophelia. Everyone was blind to the fact he was depressed and mourning over his lost relationship with his Father and the cruel doing of his Uncle.
