Contrary to belief though, this quote was a way to set his “mousetrap” and force her to be in the background of his grand scheme. The audience must draw conclusions concerning their relationship because their love is not the main focus of the play and Hamlet acting insane is an inconvenience because it is hard to decipher what was sincere or madness. Shakespeare does not seem to have a high opinion of women, while writing Hamlet, considering how Hamlet holds deep bitterness toward his mother and Ophelia for not having a backbone and allowing themselves to be pawns in the game Claudius and he are playing. Saying this, Hamlet’s behavior towards Ophelia is crude, rough, and full of anger. Despite Hamlet’s harsh treatment towards Ophelia, he really did love her, but because she was not his main focus, the
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
The only reason Edmund finds himself in Narnia is because he followed his little sister who went into the wardrobe. His goal was not to find a place to hide, but only to tease her, which shows how spiteful Edmund can be. When he finally enters into the world of Narnia, he does not feel guilty for making fun of his sister, but blames her for leaving him on his own in this new world. He does not take responsibilities for his actions and he is happy to blame anyone but himself. He shows arrogance and pride.
Iago has no proof that desdemona is cheating but because of his persuasive words and honest reputation othello believes him. Iago starts to mess with othello 's thoughts. Soon othello starts thinking and eventually planning his wife 's murder.Othello says to desdemona while trying to strangle her, Out, strumpet weep’st thou for him to my face...it is too late (Shakespeare 5.276-83). Othello is telling desdemona it 's too late to apologize for her cheating, no amount of tears will fix what she did. Othello has no evidence for believing desdemona slept with cassio.
Character can be broken despite how strongly it is shaped. In William Shakespeare’s tragedy, Othello, Othello was a brave Moor who was quick to marry his lover Desdemona. His sinister ensign Iago deceived him into believing his loyal wife had committed adultery. Although Othello believed the alleged accusations, he also gave up his moral character to Iago. Regardless of the lack of trust from Othello, Desdemona did deceive her father prior to the situation.
He says the ghost might take advantage of him and needs better evidence than the ghost. A couplet at the end indicates that his plan with the players will hopefully reveal the king’s guilt; therefore, he wouldn’t have to pretend to be mad anymore. Hamlet was never mad, but was pretending to be mad so that no one becomes suspicious of him and Claudius won’t suspect that he knows the truth.Thus, madness and mental illness is a frequent theme in the
Even though Macbeth is a generally decent character, he still has the capability to influence people and tell them what to do using fair is foul. Once Lady Macbeth convinces him to kill Duncan, he says that her "false face must hide what the false heart doth know," (1.7.95-96). He is telling her to put on a front and pretend that all is well, when in reality they both know that they are liars and
2. 255, 287). Hamlet gives himself away with these comments, because he is directly speaking out about Claudius’s crime and his mother’s unfaithfulness. These comments not only affirm Claudius’s previous suspicion of Hamlet’s motives, but cause Claudius to form a hoax of his own to get rid of Hamlet and his ‘madness’ for good. Claudius decides to send his nephew to England because he recognizes that Hamlet isn’t mentally crazy just revenge crazy.
If we believe it to be a sincere effort then we can truly believe that the shrew has been tamed which is sad because it has led to the death of Katharina’s personality. A second way to the understanding of speech is farce which is linked to the initial induction in the play which shows that the play in a farce and nothing happening is to be taken in a serious sense. It could be satirical where katharina realizes that it is in her best interest to budge according to petruchios demands for her own well being and she gives that speech just to re affirm her false sincerity to her husband. Since the language of the speech is highly exaggerated, I tend to believe it as
In Scene 1 Act 2 she says “Let not thy mother lose her prayers, Hamlet; I pray thee stay with us; go not to Wittenberg" (1.2,18-19) she’s trying to protect Hamlet but not seeing that she’s actually hurting him. What made Hamlet mad was that she had married her uncle two months after his father’s death. Gertrude causes the main problem in Hamlet’s life and she does it by only thinking of herself. Hamlet is a young loyal man while the queen is nothing close to being loyal. Hamlet is loyal to his father and want revenges for his death by killing Claudius while Queen Gertrude is disloyal to Old Hamlet by marrying his
However, if Romeo had not been impulsive and did not married Juliet, she would not have had to choose between Paris and Romeo. Parents not a problem cause no need for forcing cause she no like romeo. Therefore, Juliet wouldn’t be driven to drink the poison that causes both Romeo and Juliet to die. Friar Lawrence warned Romeo of his impulsiveness when Romeo told the Friar of how his: “...heart’s dear love is set On the fair daughter of rich Capulet. As mine on hers, so hers is set on mine, And all combined, save what thou must combine By holy marriage,” (3.2.61-65).
If he like ran away or died when Juliet the play would still be on the same level of dispar. If we were to remove Friar Lawrence there would be a happy ending, because Romeo would have got cheated on and then he’d move on to a different girl. The tragedies that happened in Romeo and Juliet are truly dark and depressing. Friar Lawrence is to blame for these events. He tried to change the feelings of people even though he was no professional who knew how the brain worked.
