What made it even worse was his mom, Gertrude, ended up marrying Claudius short after King Hamlet 's death.

The chapter that stuck out to me most for giving perspective that I lacked prior to reading this book. My favorite quote from chapter being the first, “Mother, I bring sad news: your son was killed facing the enemy.” The mother said, “He is my son.” “Your other son is alive and unhurt,” said the messenger. “He fled from the enemy.” The mother said, “He is not my son.”( chapter-1 pg-1 ). Aside from the very obvious strong female angle, the quote spoke to me on a personal level. The mother denouncing her commitment to her son for his act of Cowardice is a strong lesson.

Antigone shows this when she makes the decision to bury her brothers body, and Juliet when she decides to fake her death. These girls have beliefs contrary to those that they are surrounded with and taught in everyday society. Love clouds the judgement of Juliet when she considers how life could be if she stayed with her family, and she decides it would make the most sense to fake her death to live happily with him. Antigone buries the body of her brother Polynices, and her safety is compromised by this act of love and respect for the Gods and her family. Their male partners have a critical role in these stories and character’s lives as well.

Sirk’s style is distinguished when it comes to demonstrating humanity. In the film, society plays as an omnipresent character and is just as important as the characters being played by his actors.
