Hamlet's Sense of Humor - Hamlet's Sense of Humor     Well aware that several hours of unrelenting angst would be a bit much for his audience to take, William Shakespeare strategically placed several humorous scenes throughout his masterpiece, Hamlet.  In particular, the character of Polonius fills the role of the comic fool; he is in two essential comedic scenes, one with his own children and then one with Hamlet.  Shakespeare's acute ability to weave humor into this very heavy play is noteworthy, as his use of comedy goes beyond merely providing much-needed comic relief.   In fact, the rather numerous comedic scenes serve as a foils to, as well as reflections of, the intense action of the play.   In every case where humor is used in Hamlet, it is juxtaposed with some profound observation on the human condition.  Moreover, in his use of comedy, Shakespeare intensifies, rather than dilutes, the experience of the human tragedy that accompanies it....   [tags: GCSE English Literature Coursework]

Free Hamlet Essays: Hamlet the Anti-Hero - Hamlet the Anti-Hero Hamlet certainly isn't a hero in this play. He exhibits many of his weaknesses that contradict other characters in the play. A hero is a person who shows great courage through his actions and one who is noble and self-sacrificing. He does exhibit courage in parts like when the ghost came and Hamlet followed it, but yet he certainly isn't self-sacrificing. He sacrifices other characters lives to benefit his chance of getting revenge with Claudius. I thought Hamlet was a selfish, self centered, weak and crazy person....   [tags: GCSE English Literature Coursework] 1203 words

The Duchess and the Jeweller by Virginia Woolf - THE DUCHESS AND THE JEWELLER Oliver Bacon, the jeweller, is really the only developed character in the short story “The Duchess and the Jeweller” by Virginia Woolf. The author uses the indirect stream-of consciousness technique as well as her own words to depicts the enterprising merchant as a many-sided man: He is both ambitious and sympathetic. The jeweller is highly arrogant and ambitious. His strutting smugness is evident through the animal metaphors used to portray him-from his physical bearing (“his nose was long and flexible, like an elephant’strunk”), to his ambition compared to a “giant hog” snuffing for truffles or a “camel sees the blue lake.”He reveals his heart’s deepest passion for cold stones rather than other human beings, especially since he does not have any real friends in the story....   [tags: essays research papers] 461 words

An Analytical Essay on the Significance of the Players in Hamlet - An Analytical Essay on the Significance of the Players in Hamlet     The significance of the players exceeds the sole purpose of entertainment, as each possesses the power to unveil the "occulted guilt" (3.2.75) and conscience of the King.  Hamlet assumes the responsibility to advise these players with precise and adequate direction so that a "whirlwind of passion" (6) may not effectively separate Claudius from personally identifying with the play.  Hamlet's enthusiastic approach toward direction may be so that he encourages the players to "suit the action to the word, the word to the/ action, with this special observance, that you o'erstep not/ the modesty of nature" (16-18).  However, this exercise of caution may justify Hamlet's too often delayed attempt toward the action of avenging his father's murder.  His direction confines him to the overflow of words as he experiences imprisonment within the truth of his own identity....   [tags: The Tragedy of Hamlet Essays] 648 words
