Revenge - ... Furthermore, isolation is quite the proponent to the quieting of Hamlet's mind that he may sort through the clutter to form a precise and intuitive revenge. Moreover, isolating one's self may also isolate others within our respective circles. Moreover, while Hamlet isolated himself in hopes of a fruitful and cunning revenge, Ophelia was also isolated unto her father's house from her beloved Hamlet. In being so, isolation casts off the outward distractions as the proprietor of isolation delves all the more into himself or the feelings within him (personal lamentation, sorrow, resolve) and presses the attentions of others farther into the distance....   [tags: Critical Analysis, Shakespeare]
