The Psychoanalytic theory is applied to one of Shakespeare’s plays, King Lear, by understanding the needs of the Lear’s love from his daughters and the actions that follow. Throughout the play King Lear’s tone is harsh and angry due to his madness for his daughters who betrayed him. After Lear foolishly divides his kingdom to his daughters, based upon their love for him, his pride and self-esteem comes to a low standard. Throughout the play Lear seems to not know himself very well as much as others. He feels betrayed because his daughters who claimed they “loved” him the most went against his orders.
If i was Lear i think the same thing would’ve happened to me, yeah he went to war against his two daughters that backstabbed him but the last thing he wanted to see was them dead. If I were too see all my children dead in front of me im pretty sure i would go so crazy in my mind with heartbreak that I would either go on an outrage and try to kill the people that killed my daughter/ daughters or I too would die with a broken heart.
King Lear is losing his mind, he is being back stabbed and lied to by his daughters when all he wanted from them was to see how much they truly love him and hear the truth on how they really felt about him. While reading “King Lear” written by William Shakespeare I noticed that many conflicts and character feuds occurred. The first act starts with character conflict between Cordelia, Goneril and Regan when King Lear orders them to express their love for his land. While Goneril and Regan exaggerate and tell their father what he wants to hear, Cordelia tells the truth and receives nothing. As the act continues you see separation between the family.
He believes this because of his mothers rush to marry Claudius. In Hamlet’s eyes, he sees this Gertrude’s wedding as her just wanting someone to sleep with and to not feel lonely. However, Hamlet does not see that what she is really trying to do is to help the people of Denmark cope with the hardship of King Hamlet’s death by marrying Claudius. Hamlet did love Ophelia and Gertrude, he just did not respect them. Hamlet was desperate for revenge and that drove him mad, therefore making him very emotional and unstable.
The parent’s hatred blinded them to pay attention to their children’s needs, the love kept Romeo and Juliet together through all costs and the Friar’s plan to avoid the marriage went wrong which lead them to their death. Works Cited Shakespeare, William. Romeo and Juliet. Ed. Dom Salaini, et al.
In the first act King Lear commands his daughters to profess their love to him as payment for their part of the kingdom. The conflict starts when Lear’s youngest daughter Cordelia refuses to respond to the king’s request, due to the fact that she does not want to lie to her father. Lear comes across as a very egotistical man who has to have everything his way. Therefore, due to Cordelia’s response it would make sense for him to become so enraged that he would ruin her marriage with Burgundy. Lear makes it very apparent that he wants all of Cordelias love and isn’t satisfied with Cordelia’s words which are not offensive, but hurtful to her father who desires all of her love.
This response made the king very upset and he came to be outraged with his daughter and made the decision in banishing her. This was proof... ... middle of paper ... ... She seemed to have committed suicide by stabbing herself with a knife. This was not like every story that has a “happily ever after” ending. Cordelia had been killed by her own sister’s plots and so was her father King Lear. Goneril and Regan were both liars and scornful, they had planned to kill their own family members just to get what they pleased for.
But even after Klytaimestra’s facts are proven, the Chorus will later undermine her abilities again. After coming out of the house with blood stained hands while announcing her murder, all the Chorus can do is talk about what a great loss they suffer. They accuse Klytaimestra for being a backstabber, and tell her she should be punished. When Klytaimestra defends her actions by pointing out how Agamemnon killed her daughter, they ignore her and keep mourning. Even though they can see with their own eyes that Klytaimestra killed her husband and Cassandra, they still refuse to really listen to her, as if they do not want to believe that a woman committed the murder of their almighty king.
After Hamlet contemplates all of this, how can he trust any woman when his own mother betrayed his father? When Hamlet has thoughts of his mother he is affected both emotionally and psychologically. He is affected emotionally because it is his mother, his own blood that is apart of the ... ... middle of paper ... ... he over re-acts and the ghost of his father appears to remind him of why he was there. Gertrude senses Hamlets anger after he kills Polonius and asked what have I done? Hamlets reply was one full of grief, anxiety and anger.
Nora was not happy in her life with Torvald, and yet she and her husband are afraid of the embarrassment that would come if they two were to split apart. When Nora decided to leave Helmer he begins telling her, “I have it in me to become a different man.” She ends up creating a change in her life so she can start living how a human being is suppose to with the freedom to assert herself as she please without having to answer to anyone. Ibsen’s point to made in this play is to show how a couple got trapped by society, pushed into a doll house for which they don’t belong; he expressed his feelings on women rights, family and male dominance in this ear by writing this play, A Doll House.
