His cowardice prevents Hamlet from moving forward in his plans as his concerns for falling short in his father’s eyes prohibit him from even trying. Were he to try killing the king only to fail, not only could he suffer the pre-established consequences he fears, but the King would also continue living, his father would not have been served justice, and would continue walking in purgatory. Hamlet does not trust his own abilities. Hamlet strives for the success that he sees in those around him, including Claudius, his own father, and most importantly, Fortinbras. He compares himself to him, stating “Quote – Hamlet comparing himself to Fortinbras, saying how good he is”, which clearly shows he strives for success yet is to afraid that he will lose it were he to
In this play Hamlet used Deontology without even realizing it. In the beginning he was going to use teleology but then soon realized that it might be a trick and that he should do some investigating. Then in the end he finally realized that the spirit wasn't lying and that his uncle did do it. The reason that he is not insane is that he takes his time to kill his uncle. To conclude this essay the reasons that I used to prove that Hamlet went crazy was that Hamlet started talking to himself in his crazy voice, another reason is that he was the only one who could see the ghost in the bedroom scene.
Hamlet is not justified by treating Gertrude the way he did. Gertrude said that Hamlet has offended his new stepfather by the play that he put on (to find out if Claudius actually did kill the king). After Hamlet hears that his mother is not proud by the way he has been acting Hamlet just goes off on her. Hamlet then says that his mother has offended his real father (King Hamlet) and completely intimidates her. Then Hamlet accuses Gertrude of lustfulness and his mother starts crying and begs him to go.
The major difference between Laertes and Hamlet is the time they spend on revenge. Hamlet doesn’t take every advantage of the large amount of opportunities to kill his uncle- he doesn’t kill Claudius when Claudius is praying in the room alone, for example; he keeps the right time to exact his vengeance. Also, he is suspicious whether the ghost is telling him the truth so that he prepares a play that is similar to the way Claudius kills his father to see Claudius’ reaction. After checking the ghost doesn’t lie, he is ready for revenge. On the other hand, Laertes just goes to Denmark as soon as he hears about the death of his father.
Why does Macbeth fail? Well to start off failure is everywhere in life which is no exception to Macbeth but with Macbeth there’s a problem for some reason Macbeth can’t accept the fact he fails. Macbeth is constantly failing to achieve what he hopes to accomplish, due to the fact that he was trying to fight something that he cannot stop. Macbeth's failure to accept his fate rather than fight it is the reason Macbeth's down fall. When Macbeth received his fate from the witches and apparitions he was happy so he let come not doing anything to stop it.
Hamlet may slip to madness in some moments but he never actually goes mad. After his mother dies in that last act he kills himself but does not go mad in rage that Claudius was planning to kill him. Hamlet uses a form of questioning that is called existentialism. Hamlet undergoes through some existentialism meaning that he asks himself many questions regarding life. He does not know whether to kill himself and die or if to stay alive and live the painful life he lives.
Hamlet is a very sensitive, moody person, very much in awe of his deceased father, who obviously didn 't care about his image or he wouldn 't have feigned "madness". Oedipus was a very passionate man, passionate about his position, his wife/mother, people of Thebes, and passionate about his concern for Polybus and Merope. Hamlet shows no genuine love for anyone except for his father and maybe his mother, but this is questionable because he would 've killed his mother had the ghost instructed him to. Even when Hamlet declares his love for Ophelia, he later claims it 's not true. He is, however, passionate about killing Claudius.
Gladwell in his piece, David and Goliath Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants, suggests people should use their negative situation to their advantage. He discusses this idea exemplifying people with dyslexia who used their unique abilities to their advantage when they struggled with reading and writing. Gladwell’s theory of overcoming difficult situations does not apply to Shakespeare 's character Hamlet because he is unwilling to overcome and improve, after his father’s death, leading to his ultimate downfall. At the beginning of Hamlet, King Hamlet has suspiciously died and his son, Hamlet is overcome by the death of his father, causing him to constantly grieve and not heal. Hamlet’s mother decides to remarry King Hamlet’s uncle, which Hamlet strongly disagrees with the marriage and views it as
Not trusting many people in the kingdome for the most part of the play, the reader rarely sees Hamlet's true feeling explained to another person. In act five Learties challenges Hamlet to a duel to revenge his sister's death which he blames on Hamlet. Once hearing the news Horatio become greatly concerned for Hamlet's well-being, and tries to convince him to say he is not fit to dule. “ You will lose my lord--”...“ If your mind dislike anything, obey it. I will forestall their repair hither and say you are not fit.” (5.2.223) Not listening to Horatio, Hamlet duels with laertes and is struck with a poisoned blade.
You just cant take orders and get revenge on your uncle if you don't know the truth. One little screw up can screw you up. Now you’ll have everyone against you. You first have to get some type of proof to go along with your actions. Once Hamlet got his proof by putting together a play to get the reactions of his uncle, he still didn't
