Throughout Hamlet, the characters consistently deceive each other to disguise their true intentions and actions. The first line of the play reads “Who’s there?” (Shakespeare, 7); these words foreshadow the multi-faceted aspects of the actors throughout the development of Shakespeare’s work. The characters deceive one another in order to achieve a specific longing for themselves. The motif of deception can be found throughout the play in the actions of Hamlet, Guildenstern, and Claudius. Hamlet’s deception stems from his yearning for revenge on his uncle.
Hamlet’s diction that he used when he was talking to Polonius truly showed he was going crazy. Hamlet was talking to Polonius and he told Guildenstern and Rosencrantz he was going to act crazy but during their talk his real madness was revealed. He said “you cannot, sir,take from me anything that I will more willingly part withal- except my life, except my life, except my life.” (II,II,218-220). When he says except my life this shows that he started to believe what he was “faking”. Shakespeare uses that diction to show the audience that he is really going crazy.
The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is a play about two star-crossed lovers; all the events that occur lead to more disappointment and it definitely does not obtain a joyous ending. The main two characters seem to have incorporated themselves into the situation. However, I choose to believe that Romeo was a bigger leading cause to the whole complication. He undertakes actions without thoroughly thinking them through which is very capricious and unpredictable. In William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo’s actions clearly show his immaturity characterizing him as both irresponsible and childish.
In the beginning of the story, Juan tries everything in his power to get back his letters and joins the Censor Bureau in order to stop it. He latter end up so enthralled in his job, when it came time when he found it, he unwittingly censor it. Because of this irony, it gives the perfect example of satire on the idea of censorship. Overall, “The Censors” bring the idea of satire to Censorship. Both sides, Juan and the government are so paranoid of each other, they go to extreme lengths in order to censor thing.
And like Donald Trump, Hamlet was very quick to act out of rage when finding out that his this uncle had been poisoned. He instantly wanted revenge, not caring about what consequences may follow him during his quest to killing Claudius. Hamlet sets up his “friends” Guildenstern and Rosencrantz and has
Both texts have the same plot line where Iago or Ben Jago is set out to destroy Othello in vengeance for not getting the title/position that he thought that he deserved. He makes up the same lie where Desdemona is accused of cheating on Othello with Cassio/Michael Cass. In the play, Iago is very persistent when it comes to making Othello suffer by manipulating him and others throughout the whole novel without any empathy. Whereas in the novel Ben Jago does manipulate others but halfway through the film he does realize that maybe things have advanced past what he ever expected them to be. In the play itself, Iago does not know when to stop manipulating people and he also does not realize when things get pushed past it limits.
One definition of madness is “mental delusion of the eccentric behavior arising from it.” However, as Emily Dickinson once wrote, “Much madness is divinest Sense/ To a discerning Eye.” In Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet, the main character, Prince Hamlet, shows apparent madness which proves to serve an important role throughout the story. This erratic behavior consists of his seemingly senseless dialogues, his loss of care for Ophelia, and his increasingly aggressive nature. Such behavior often proves justified by the play’s audience due to its convincing nature despite Hamlet’s predisposition towards insanity. Primarily, Hamlet provides hints towards his apparent madness through his seemingly insane dialogues. This is most prominently displayed
In Hamlet by William Shakespeare, Claudius conspires with others to carry out his various schemes. Fueled by the desire to obtain his brother’s success, Claudius’ reign of power leaves a path of destruction in its wake. Once he kills the King, his true goal shifts to murdering Hamlet. After learning of Claudius’ betrayal, Hamlet seeks retribution. Consequently, this fire Claudius sparked in Hamlet’s heart burns brighter with each waking moment, and as the flame grows, his mind continues to falter.
Most times these deeds are bad and in the end come back to haunt the characters. Throughout the whole play, Shakespeare uses the theme of deception to create tension, and scandals. These acts of deception will be the falling of many characters and also one of the main themes of the play. In acts one and two, the use of deception is demonstrated. Deception is first used in Macbeth by William Shakespeare in scene six of act one.
He pretended his madness to know the plans, actions and loyalties of others towards him, and it was a trick to be played by Hamlet to know what others are thinking of him and to do what he wanted to. The word of Stopford Brooke (1913;96) would be best to take as a conclusion about the madness of Hamlet, “All man of genius are mad, genius itself is a kind of madness.. . . . .
