Even though Romeo and Juliet dates back to nearly 419 years ago, there is still debate about what characters are most responsible for the death of the two star-crossed lovers. When the two are posthumously found dead next to each other, the Prince says, "Some shall be pardon’d, and some shall be punished” (Romeo & Juliet. 5.3.329-330). Shakespeare doesn’t clearly tell his readers which characters will be pardoned or punished, but there is evidence to believe that some characters are more to blame than others. The parents in Romeo and Juliet are most responsible for Juliet and Romeo’s love because they take part in a feud that didn’t allow their children be together, Juliet’s parents threw a party that allowed them to meet each other, and Juliet’s
But his father forced him to marry someone else so that Anne would have to marry King Henry. Anne of Cleves was betrothed to a man; it fell through, so she was free to marry another man. Catharine Parr had also been betrothed to a different man; it also fell through. Catharine had previously married other men; the first when she was fourteen, but they all died, leaving her a widow. King Henry VIII had a very strong
But, look here; your father dated his signature the 2nd of October. It is a discrepancy, isn’t it? Can you explain it to me?” (Ibsen 1374). Nora tries to manipulate Krogstad into believing that her father was terribly ill, and was not able to sign his name, so she signed it for him.
Another foil in the play is seen between Claudius and Polonius. Further along in the play, Polonius is seen as weak yet politically adept due to the fact that though he’s not considered a man of prestige he has risen up to be the king’s counselor. Claudius, on the other hand, can be considered corrupt and strategic as he has married his late brother’s wife no more than two months after he, according to the ghost (I,v, 37), killed him (Old Hamlet) in order to keep the throne. Finally, though during act one we can’t truly identify a foil between Hamlet and Laertes. However, further along in the play we can see how this foil is more and more apparent.
Hamlet, the son of Gertrude, was distressed with his mother. Over the death of his father, his mother had married his uncle within a span of a few months. In Hamlet's famous soliloquy, he stated the weakness of women compared to men. He believed that his mother was mentally weak, and she could not live without a man by her side. Hamlet was certain that his mother made a foolish decision which she could not take back.
and I had not seen her for several months. These factors most likely impacted the grief felt by both myself and Marji. An example of this is Marji’s rejection of God. Perhaps due to the unfair nature of Anoosh’s death at the hands of the Iranian government Marji rejected God. I on the other hand, did the opposite, moving closer to religion to cope with my loss.
“In some ways, it’s hypocritical, because my former wife had abandoned the marriage within a year or so after I was shot down,” Stirm recounts. “And she didn’t even have the honor and integrity to be honest with the kids. She lived a lie. This picture does not show the realities that she had accepted proposals of marriage from three different men. . . . It portrays (that) everybody there was happy to see me.”
Gertrude does not realize that the cup is poisoned. Her death may be viewed as accidental, because she could have listened to her second husband. She may have thought that it was an ordinary drink, but it really was meant for Hamlet to drink when he becomes tired of dueling. After she falls on the floor, she screams, “No, no, the drink, the drink! O

Part I explained, Jean Louise being presented a marriage proposal by Henry Clinton, but she tells him that “I’ll have an affair with you but I won’t marry. ”(p. 67) Because she doesn’t want to cheat on him later on in life. Next, Aunt Alexandra comes into play. Alexandra forces herself into Jean’s life by telling her she cannot marry Henry; even though Jean wasn’t planning on it anyways.
Throughout the play Hamlet, we raise our eyebrows to every character because each leaves us in such suspense before dying. Gertrude becomes a central figure right from the beginning as her son, Hamlet, tries to avenge his father’s death by killing Claudius without hurting her. Hamlet contemplates the wicked and vile marriage that truly resulted in the fall of Denmark numerous times. Though she might not have physically changed anything within the play, Gertrude affected all of her surroundings through her mysterious acts, her selfishness, and through the lack of properly mourning over her dead husband. All this shows that she was aware of Old Hamlet’s death and allowed it to happen.
Freudian Theory: Effects on Hamlet The omission of Freudian theory prevents the audience from understanding certain aspects of the film. On the other hand, with the inclusion of Freudian theory, the audience watching the film Hamlet has a completely different perception as to what the movie is about. Both Freudian theory and the lack of it, changes the interpretation of the film and gives variation to the plot and theme of the play. To begin, both movies have a similar plot with the omission and inclusion of Freudian theory.
The play Hamlet by William Shakespeare is of a son whose murder madness and indecision takes a toll on avenging his father’s murder. The main character’s madness can be seen in multiple scenes of the play affecting numerous characters and the meaning of the play as a whole. This can be seen through analyzing his madness throughout the play, the recurrence of this madness as a motif, and the overall outcome. At the beginning of the play, Hamlet is met by his father’s ghost and is explained on how King Claudius, Hamlet’s uncle, murdered his father to gain access to the throne.
In the play Hamlet by William Shakespeare, the dead king’s son Hamlet avenges his father’s murder, but his madness and indecision takes its toll on everyone. Hamlet’s father, the King Hamlet, was murdered by Claudius because he was ambitious for the throne and Queen Gertrude. In Act 3 of the play, Hamlet begins to test Claudius for any sign of guilt in the murder of his father. After watching a play disguised as a reenactment of the murder of King Hamlet, Claudius begins to confess his sins to God. In Claudius’ confession soliloquy, Shakespeare reveals Claudius’ inner duel between his rational desire to act virtuously by relieving his guilt and his gravitation toward material gain and selfishness by following his ambitions through the use of
