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. On the other hand, Hamlet accuses Ophelia of faithlessness, of whoring. He tells her to get her to a nunnery, a statement that implies that she is no better than a whore. This can be justified in Act 3, Scene 1 “Get thee to a nunnery. Why wouldst thou be a breeder of sinners?
Minus becoming impure, Ophelia is left brokenhearted and distraught as Hamlet breaks his promises to her of marriage. This broken promise is also one of the stones that later drives her mad. So a reader may find it interesting that even in her state of madness she is able to communicate her heartbreak and touch down on topics most would never consider. While Ophelia does show some good examples of feminism, Queen Gertrude shows even more compelling evidence of feminist lens in the form of Gertrude holding the perfect image of a proper women. The reader can see the feminist lens in Gertrude through her love for her son and when she is always being overlooked by the men in her life.
Hamlet realizes this and says "O, most wicked speed, to post/ with such dexterity to incestuous sheets!" (1.2.161-132). Hamlet has a problem with his mother's sexuality. It's not that he's disgusted by Gertrude's marriage to Claudius, but the fact that he can't stand to think she is having sex. Although it is quite clear that Gertrude is weak and reliant on Claudius to make her happy, she does not realize how much it has affected Hamlet.
When Hamlet encounters Ophelia in the nunnery scene, she hands the letters back to him. He then tells her “You should not have believed me; for virtue cannot so inoculate our old stock but we shall relish for it: I loved you not.” meaning that he never loved Ophelia. Hamlet suspects that her father, Polonius, has something to do with this, so he asks her where is her father. Ophelia lies and tells him that he is at home, this makes Hamlet get more angry and tells her “Get thee to a nunnery, go: farewell. Or, if thou wilt needs marry, marry a fool; for wise men know well enough what monsters you make of them.” He tells her this because he is angry at her for obeying her father's instructions as if she were still a little girl and he is aware of how controlling her father
Ophelia’s doubts of Hamlet’s love are planted when she is conversing with her brother, Laertes, and her father, Polonius. The two men in her family do not trust Hamlet and do not want Ophelia to marry Hamlet. This conflict results in Polonius and Laertes telling Ophelia that Hamlet does not care about her, he is only
He cuts himself off to show that he uses the word tender a great deal, but to make the word, tender, have more value. Then he mentions, you’ll tender me a fool, to tell Ophelia that she will allow him to become a moron within his community. Polonius does not want her to ruin his reputation. He continuously makes her feel inadequate, simple minded and guilty for being affectionate towards Hamlet. Even if Ophelia wanted to speak up against her father, she was forbidden to do so.
Hero had very little say in marrying her father going so far as to plan her wedding date for her. Beatrice openly describes how she does not care to be married because of her desire to maintain independence. She refuses to give up her freedom or submit to the will of a controlling husband. She elucidated to the impossibility getting married when speaking with Leonato and a few others, she
Scylla seems almost insane for going against her father who has been protecting their people for King Minos that she has never met. She just assumes that everything will turn out just as planned. This shows she as a naive woman who believes that everything will happen the way she wants it to happen. Her plan is to pull out her father’s hair, let King Minos win the war, and they will fall in love, though she has no knowledge of Minos’ personality. She offers him all she has in exchange for his affection.
Personal desire and choosing to conform is a battle between right and wrong, shown in the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, because Juliet chooses Romeo over everyone else, pursuing what she wants to make herself happy, but everyone else in the family views this as wrong. Juliet wants to do the right thing, which is doing what makes her happy. Lady Capulet wants to know Juliet’s idea of getting married but Juliet does not want to get married, which upsets her family and the nurse. “It is an honour that I dream not of.” (Act 1, Scene 3, line 68). Juliet feels that she is too young and too immature to get married, she wants to explore what makes her happy.
For example, one of the situations that has happened between Polonius and Ophelia is when Polonius finds out that Ophelia has a lover named Hamlet. He gives an incite of the perception of males when it comes to having relations with women. He stated that Hamlet didn’t genuinely love Ophelia and it was simply a lie to make her feel special. In a way he lowered Ophelia’s confidence by suggesting that he would not choose her over a prettier woman. He then argues with Ophelia and tells her that all Hamlet wanted to do was get in her pants because she was easy and gullible to him.
