Factors Contributing to Shakespeare's Hamlet Being a Great Play William Shakespeare's Hamlet, through the heroism and nobility of its hero, his superior power of insight into, and reflection upon, his situation, and his capacity to suffer the moral anguish which moral responsibility brings, is considered one of the greatest pieces of literature ever written. Throughout the play, Hamlet, through both soliloquies and actions, displays these characteristics, which make Hamlet such an important and intriguing individual. Hamlet's heroism and nobility displayed throughout most of the play, classify Hamlet as a tragedy that "towers above other plays of its kind." The main reason Hamlet is considered honorable and noble is because of the audience's sympathy for Hamlet. At the beginning of the play, he has just lost his father, and immediately his mother and uncle marry.
Mercutio's Part in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet Romeo and Juliet, one of the most outstanding stage plays in the world, was produced by William Shakespeare in around 1595. It is one of the greatest tragedies ever produced as it explores and expresses the sensations of love and has the most memorable storylines of all time. One of the most entertaining characters Shakespeare has created throughout his career without a doubt is Mercutio, who is the kinsman to prince Escales and could be argued to be the most significant character in the play. The following argument will bring about the essay that I am writing. Mercutio, though he is one of the most influential characters of Romeo and Juliet, still plays the 'second fiddle' to Romeo and maybe even Juliet (as it might be suggested by the title).
Public and critical acclaim quickly followed, and Shakespeare eventually became the most popular playwright in England and part owner of the Globe Theater. His career bridged the reigns of Elizabeth I (ruled 1558-1603) and James I (ruled 1603-1625); he was a favorite of both monarchs. Indeed, King James paid Shakespeare's theater company the greatest possible compliment by endowing them with the status of king's players. Wealthy and renowned, Shakespeare retired to Stratford, and died in 1616 at the age of fifty-two. At the time of Shakespeare's death, such luminaries as Ben Jonson hailed him as the apogee of Renaissance theater.
Shakespeare turned this subject from nothing special, to something spectacular. The objective of this essay is to show the dramatic significance of the romance and tragedy of this work of art. The play made William Shakespeare very famous in his early days as a play write. Act III Scene I of the performance, is one in which the character and plot turn around from their earlier roles. This scene contains the highest dramatic points in the entire play and they provide huge amounts of anticipation to the audience's minds in the actions following.
This kind of beauty Othello shares with Romeo and Juliet and Antony and Cleopatra; it is a corollary of the theme which it shares with them. But Othello is also remarkable for another kind of beauty. Except for the trivial scene with the clown, all is immediately relevant to the central issue; no scene requires critical justification. The play has a rare intellectual beauty, satisfying the desire of the imagination for order and harmony between the parts and the whole. Finally, the play has intense moral beauty.
The opening scene in a play acts as an expository scene that introduces the audience to the background of the play, its hero, and hints at the main theme. Shakespeare is one of the greatest dramatists who wrote the best expository scenes ever. They are known for their greatness and their capacity to attract the audience or the reader from the very beginning. One of Shakespeare's great opening scenes is the opening scene of Macbeth. Some consider the opening scene of Macbeth a compact exposition because it introduces to the audience the background of the lay, its hero and hints at the main theme.
Of his works, Hamlet is without question the most famous play in the English language. Probably written in 1601 or 1602, the tragedy is a milestone in Shakespeare's dramatic development; the playwright achieved artistic maturity in this work through his brilliant depiction of the hero's struggle with two opposing forces: moral integrity and the need to avenge his father's murder. Although four hundred years has passed, this tragedy has been sparkling with a peculiar beauty of its own. In Hamlet, Shakespeare wrote an incomparable profound tragedy of human spirit from a very common myth and vested the hero Hamlet with deep thoughts and emotions that many people possess. No wonder the famous writer Belinsky exclaimed: ¡°Hamlet ¡ is really great and profound: this is life, this is human being, this is you, this is me, this is everyone of us.¡± Hamlet was the young prince of Denmark.

Wright has the right answer. Even those who haven’t read his plays still know his words, from ‘to be or not to be’ to ‘wherefore art thou Romeo,’ but his influence goes way beyond quotable phrases. Macbeth was written by Shakespeare in the early 1600’s, one of the greatest tragedies ever written. As Shakespeare’s most popular play, Macbeth tells the tale of a man driven by greed and deceit, his work has stood the test of time. Macbeth is deceived by three witches who predict he will be king.
"Virtue itself turns vice being misapplied and vice plant Sometimes by action dignified .....Canker eats up that" You can see from all I have written Romeo & Juliet is a play in which Shakespeare makes great use of contrast. He does this through the characters themselves, the plot itself and the various themes of the play. Romeo &Juliet is a marvellous and effective play made, in my opinion, all the better by these themes of contrast running through it. As someone who is roughly the same age as Juliet I find it as good as anything I have read recently, even though it was written nearly 400 years ago"
