A book review of william shakespeares hamlet

Hamlet is an expression of compassion and understanding, a profession of honor and faith in the existence of friendship, camaraderie, love and justice. Hamlet reveals that friendship exists in the idea that regardless of whether or not they all would believe what one would say, they all believe that the experience affected the comrade in some form and would prove sympathetic toward their emotional state.

Honor and loyalty are expressed continually as Horatio, Marcellus, Francisco and Bernardo as they discuss the ghostly form of the king.

  • He is no weakling- but his fencing skills are hardly of any use while his anger is misdirected;
  • Claudius dies, and Hamlet dies immediately after achieving his revenge;
  • I think its just me though.

How fast would you like to get it? We'll occasionally send you account related and promo emails. The expressions of madness and fear are evident in the words expressed by Hamlet and Ophelia and then followed soon after in the actions Hamlet employs in the third act. Yet, regardless of the occurrences in this play and the drama involved in the murder, the madness, the love and passion, you see how easily Hamlet can be translated forward into present day. You can hear the fear in the words spoken in the first act by the four guards as they change places in the night and day after sighting the ghostly form.

The fact that the ghost would be sighted, feared and then revered all at the same time would be quite the intriguing dramatic formula. You feel the horror in the actions of Hamlet as his mother sees him run his uncle through in her boudoir.

  1. My favorite character had to be Young Fortinbras. You sense his fear for the same condition to be found should he ever consider marriage to the woman that loves him, Ophelia.
  2. He is immediately banished to England with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern with sealed orders for the King of England demanding that Hamlet be killed.
  3. No nation is a stranger to political intrigues and love affairs.
  4. You sense his fear for the same condition to be found should he ever consider marriage to the woman that loves him, Ophelia. Like his other great play, Romeo and Juliet, the hero dies.
  5. The ghost tells Hamlet that he was killed by his brother Claudius, who then quickly married his widowed queen, Gertrude.

He then shows his madness as the ghost of his father appears and he would hear truly what would be said, if heard nowhere but in his own mind. The spirit of what should have been upon the murder of his father, which wrought havoc, fear and pain throughout. Hamlet views justice served in the era where the play is set as being the death of his uncle upon discovery that infidelity even posthumously would have occurred, and that outside the marriage bed, as would be forbidden in the times, should be effectively tried and convicted, executed and such.

  • Hamlet is an expression of compassion and understanding, a profession of honor and faith in the existence of friendship, camaraderie, love and justice;
  • Shakespeare tries to communicate a message- and thoughts of staging a performance with ease take a backseat, which is why this play is regarded as the ultimate challenge for any actor.

You hear it earlier in the play in the pride and conviction expressed in the life of young Hamlet. You would also hear the fear for safety in the potential for travel to Wittenberg as Hamlet considers such a voyage. You hear the worry and the anguish expressed by both Queen Gertrude and King Claudius. Shakespeare, 245-246, 4-2 The dramatic turns and the expressions of justice, love, and loyalty are threaded throughout in the actions of the guards, the king, Hamlet and others.

  1. Shakespeare takes the old tale of a hero who sacrifices himself in the cause of justice and turns it on its head.
  2. My second character has to be Horatio.
  3. Hamlet views justice served in the era where the play is set as being the death of his uncle upon discovery that infidelity even posthumously would have occurred, and that outside the marriage bed, as would be forbidden in the times, should be effectively tried and convicted, executed and such. I think its just me though.

The sense of honor, no matter how far beyond the death of his father, would be evident in his passionate plea toward his mother to consider the actions she would take as being betrayal upon allowing another in her bed. You sense his fear for the same condition to be found should he ever consider marriage to the woman that loves him, Ophelia.

Book: Hamlet

Ophelia, as can be heard in her words, adores Hamlet, yet she fears his moods, his anger and his reaction to the emotions that have come into existence in the death of the king and the appearance of the ghost he sees, hears and understands. The emotions are palpable throughout the play in its dramatic twists and turns. Those elements include a sense of pride, a sense of honor, justice, loyalty and camaraderie, love and devotion that are translated regardless of the era in which the reader would exist.

The wondrous ability of Shakespearean works would be the very fact that translation into modern times is a simple endeavor and that the emotions, the reactions, in fact, the very basic instincts which are portrayed would and could easily be seen in this world as they were in the imagination of William Shakespeare.
