In this case, Polonius is using Ophelia to set up Hamlet and secretly listen to their conversation. This is an important quote as he is trying to express to Polonius that Hamlet knows what he is doing with Ophelia and that he should be a better father to Ophelia. Yet as the readers know Polonius ignores this which eventually leads him to his own
Claudius implies that he thinks Hamlet is ‘brooding’ something behind this madness and is not falling for it. Claudius’s suspicions are confirmed by Hamlet’s rash behavior during the play. Instead of letting the actors say their lines while Horatio watched the King’s expression, Hamlet decides to commentate the play. He says, “ O, but she’ll keep her word,” and, “He poisons him i’th’ garden for his estate.” (3. 2.
Firstly, King Hamlet appears when Hamlet was contemplating about suicide, thus, letting Thanatos rule. However, his father, his Superego provides him with a motive to live for- revenge against Claudius. This not only prevents Hamlet from committing the immoral sin of suicide, but also promises a reward- the eradication of the barrier between him and Gertrude. Franco Zefirrelli`s Hamlet (1990) points at the dramatic entrance of King Hamlet who catches Hamlet and Gertrude kissing, turning Hamlet guilty while his Superego effectively stifle his actions. This scene also displays Gertrude`s desires.
Although Hamlet says he is going to act as though he’s crazy, he seems like he actually is. Hamlet shows us how not to live by acting as though he is crazy. Other than you shouldn’t act like your crazy it also shows us what can happen if you aren’t acting like yourself. Hamlet’s whole “mission” after Act 1, is to get revenge on Claudius. In Act 3 Scene 3, Hamlet walks by Claudius while Claudius is praying with his eyes close, facing the other direction.
In the course of the play Haemon presents himself as a defender of Antigone 's actions and sense of morality which involves her determination to bury her deceased brother, Polyneices who has been sentenced as a traitor by Creon. The father and son part in anger, as he demands his father to make the right judgment for Theban society by granting Antigone’s request, while his father follows his obstinate path of aggression. Haemon’s actions eventually lead him to commit suicide due to his desperate situation, this eventually leads to the death of his mother when she also takes her own life. The death of his family ultimately lead to Creon 's insanity at the play 's climax.  Haemon 's entrance in Antigone takes place right after he was informed of father’s verdict on Antigone’s life.
By the end of act 1, we know that Polonius wants Ophelia to protect her “honor” (or what was considered honor way back when) by rejecting Hamlet’s advances. In trying to occupy the role of the hero, Hamlet freaks and scares Ophelia by acting super awkward. Ophelia tells her dad, who thinks she must have done something to make Hamlet act really creepy. Ophelia says she “did repel his letters and denied his access [to her]” (2.1.110-111). Honor can meet lots of things, but in act two of Hamlet it’s mainly about Ophelia’s
It is clear that Hamlet is the winner in the cause that he actually get to stab and poison Claudius, which is his But toward the end of the play, he recognized his fault and ask for forgiveness.“ Lo, here I lie, never to rise again. Thy mother’s poison’d. I am no more. The King, the King’s to blame” (Shakespeare 126). Laetres realized he has been trapped by Claudius, he points out Claudius as the murder.
Romeo is impulsive, not only when he kisses Juliet, but also when he talks to Tybalt “Tybalt, the reason that I have to love the doth much excuse the appertaining rage” (Shakespeare 865). Here Romeo tells Tybalt, that he loves him. Romeo does this with no thought about their last names, he is so in love with Tybalt’s cousin that all of a sudden he forgets about the two family’s bad blood. Friar warns Romeos about rushing into a relationship “Wisely and slow. They stumble that run fast” (Shakespeare 847).
At the beginning of Act 3 Scene 1, Gertrude and Claudius receive Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Gertrude does her part as queen and in her role as Hamlet’s mother, so she’s looking out for him and worried about the guy. Claudius asks Gertrude to leave as him, Polonius, and Ophelia are going to get down to their spying plan. This might not have major implications as far as gender goes, but it’s interesting to see that Claudius seems to think that Gertrude won’t be super helpful and even intrusive in their plan. Gertrude mentions Ophelia’s part in this noble plan: “And for your part, Ophelia, I do with that your good beauties be the happy cause of Hamlet’s wildness; so
Another of Gertrude’s connections, only this time with Hamlet, is used by Polonius. He states, “Let his queen mother all alone entreat him… and I’ll be placed, so please [the king], in the ear of all their conference” (3.1.185-188). Polonius is using this tactic as a way to prove what he believes to be the cause of Hamlet’s madness. Polonius even uses his own daughter to uncover his version of the truth. So, when Hamlet’s pretend madness is first revealed, Polonius decides to “loose [his] daughter on [Hamlet].
No questions asked. Her true self is clear when she has a conversation about Hamlet, first with Laertes, her brother, then with Polonius, her father. After Laertes advises Ophelia to fear Hamlet and to be cautious with him, she replies by telling him not to lecture her (Act: I: Scene: 3: Lines 48-50). She is able to criticize her brother to some extent, but when her father gives her the same lecture as he did and tells her not to accept Hamlet’s hand, she simply replies, “I shall obey, my lord” (Act: I: Scene 3: Line 135). This early scene in the play sets up Ophelia’s mood.
Besides, the audience see Lady Macbeths is influencing her husband’s feelings by she is using her love as a weapon because she is saying do it or I will not love you. This is manipulative because she is cornering her husband, so he will have no option but to carry on with Duncan’s murder. Another example is when Lady Macbeth pulls
When Ophelia approaches Hamlet about the letters he gave her he denies even writing her any letters “no, no, not I never gave you aught” (III.i 90). Hamlet later admits to Ophelia “I did love you once” (III.i 110) but then contradicts himself by saying “I loved you not” (III.i 120). This scene raises questions about if Hamlet really loves Ophelia or if he 's just using her. Later in the scene it is made clear that Hamlet knew that Polonius and Claudius were watching him in order for them to see if Hamlet loved Ophelia or not so he just was acting like he did not love her so they would think they were wrong. Hamlet asks Ophelia where her father is to which she replies that he is home.
