Furthermore, Hamlet’s misogyny continues as he disrespects his own mother, as he states, “She married—O most wicked speed! To post / With such dexterity to incestuous sheets” (1.2.156-57). Despite his uncle Claudius being half the relationship, he continues to solely blame his mother for the act. Hamlet continues to hurt others for no reason, disturbing natural order. Additionally, Hamlet murders people for no good reason.
His ideas about her being a good pure Queen are proved false as she turns her back on her husband and marries his brother. This bothers Hamlet before he discovers his father was murdered. “Thou turn’st mine eyes into my very soul, And there I see such black and grained spots, As will not leave their tinct” (79-81) Gertrude admits that incest with her husband’s brother has blackened her soul and will forever haunt her existence. Her son’s words have struck her and she realizes what a horrible sin she has committed. However, it seems she says this to appease Hamlet as though her future actions do not show that she is remorseful.
Linda does not really attempt to save her husband, although she knows very well what is wrong with him and that he will kill himself if she does not do something. Ambition is another crucial part of these plays, essentially killing Macbeth, Lady Macbeth and Willy. Linda on the other hand does not give in to the pressures of society like the rest of the characters have. Each character plays a part in the death of their spouse, negligence, selfishness and ambition aided in the downfalls of both men. Linda and Lady Macbeth both play massive roles in the demise of their husbands.
Hamlet's anger leads to a change in his view regarding Gertrude since he loses his mother-son connection with her. By believing that Gertrude played a part in the death of his father, Hamlet develops a solid hatred for Gertrude which shapes his overall behaviour. Hamlet believes that the act of Gertrude having part in the death of his father cannot be due to her love for Claudius since she has lived major... ... middle of paper ... ...imes of her life. Hamlet’s hatred for Ophelia after the loss of love between them led to Hamlet not being part of Ophelia’s life, but being the cause of her death. Hamlet’s hatred for both Ophelia and Gertrude comes to an end only by the result of both their deaths.
Hamlet’s oppression of women was a result of his mother’s action to remarry with his uncle and this causes Hamlet to despise and loath women. Though Hamlet has known these women before the death of his father, he is so wrapped up in revenge that he cannot treat them fairly. Hamlet insulted Gertrude by yelling out, “frailty, thy name is woman!” (1.2.150) When Hamlet talks about frailty, he is talking about weakness. Gertrude is the epitome of weakness to Hamlet because of her foolish act of remarrying which Hamlet views as a
Claudius is victualing into Hamlet 's suspicion by sending people to Hamlet and ascertain what he knows. This makes Hamlet not trust anyone that he knows. When Hamlet murders Polonius, it is evident that Hamlet has gone thoroughly insane and he cannot return from the point he is at. No one is safe from Hamlet and the way he is deporting now. Hamlet has upset his mother by incriminating Claudius and insisting that her marriage is incest.
(III; iv; 29-30). Hamlet is revolted by the idea of his uncle and his mother married. Hamlet also encounters loneliness and despair from Ophelia. As part of Hamlet’s "plan" to put on an antic disposition he distances himself from Ophelia who he is actually in love with. He does this by insulting her and convincing her that he is mad and never had any true feelings for her.
which is the ultimate burn to Hamlet, and Ophelia does not bother to inform Hamlet of her father’s commands, she simply leaves. All the important women in Hamlet’s life have betrayed him one way or another which gives him justification for his bitter and hostile view of women. There has been controversy over the fact that Ophelia did not have the choice whether to listen to her father or not. Some critics may argue that Ophelia is forced to reject Hamlet’s love because of her father’s orders. Shortly after Laertes finishes telling Ophelia that she should not believe what Hamlet says or does, Polonius enters the room to tell her what she needs to do, he commands, “Have you so slander any moments leisure,/ As to give words or talk with the lord Hamlet./ Look to’t, I charge you: come your ways” to which Ophelia reluctantly replies, “I shall obey my lord” (1.3.133-136).
This possibly mean she had no control in getting married to Hamlet’s uncle Claudius, who is mainly the person to blame for majority of the conflicts. Hamlet additionally describes his mother by saying “O most pernicious woman!” (1.5.105-106).

During this part in the play, Hamlet berates Ophelia by telling her, "Or if/ thou wilt needs marry, marry a fool, for wise men know/ well enough what monsters you make of them. To a /nunn 'ry, go, and quickly too" (3.1.136-139). At this part in the play, it is extremely challenging for Hamlet to distinguish between his mother and Ophelia. Do to this, making his true feelings for his mother become more dubious. Another thing is that when Hamlet 's father is murdered and his mother re-marries, the unconstrained idea of sexuality with his mother, concealed since conception, can no longer be hidden from his conscious mind.
