The cluelessness that is going on within his mind makes him lose his mental status, life and the love of his life. Hamlets actions are hypnotized by his thoughts: “Thus Conscience does make cowards of us all, And thus the native hue of resolution Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought, And enterprises of great pitch and moment, With this regard their currents turn awry, And lose the name of action” (3.1.85-90).

The characters is very much interested in reason, as we can see since the beginning of the novel, in which he tells his son that they will not be able to go to the Lighthouse the following day because of the bad weather. Thus, we discover Mr Ramsay is not interested at all in James´s feelings, an attitude that is condemned by his wife, who loathes him because she believes him to have destroyed her son´s feelings, a destruction she believes will last till the end of their child´s life. Mr Ramsay´s superiority lays on his belief that he is intellectually superior than his wife and as such, he necessarily needs to be always right, he needs “to pursue truth with such astonishing lack of consideration for other people’s feelings” and that is, for Mrs Ramsay, ‘an outrage of human decency’” (Woolf, 51) (as was the case with the loss of affection towards the clones in Ishiguro´s novel). This is the reason why Mrs Ramsay dislikes her husband. She would like him to have more affection for the others, and at the same time she also longs for the freedom the man has in order to do what he wishes.
