The Real and Feigned Madness of Hamlet and Ophelia

- In William Shakespeare's Hamlet, a kind of madness ultimately infects everyone, leading to an ending in which almost every major character is dead.

- There is much evidence in Shakespeare’s Hamlet that the titular character deliberately feigned fits of madness in an attempt to confuse and disorient Claudius and his cadre. His explicitly stated intention to act "strange or odd" and to "put an antic disposition on" (I. v. 170, 172) is not the only indication. The latter phrase should be taken in its context and in connection with Hamlet’s other remarks on the same topic. To his old friend, Guildenstern, he says that "his uncle-father and aunt-mother are deceived," and that he is only "mad north-north-west."

Questioning the Sanity of Hamlet in Shakespeare's Hamlet, Prince of Denmark

- ... By this I mean that Hamlet has the conscious ability to change the purpose and delivery of words depending on his “audience”. To his friends, Hamlet’s “hair-splitting” is simply pleasant banter. While to other characters, when electing to be reserved, this concentrated logic acts as a barrier behind which he hides his thoughts and motives (Davis 631). When Horatio and Hamlet see each other for the first time in a long while, they immediately are excited. Hamlet, with his sometimes-sinister blunt remarks, goes on to tell of how close the wedding and funeral are to each other....   [tags: banter, mentally, love letters]

Mind the Sun in William Faulkner's A Rose for Emily

- The beast in a human is subdued by our milquetoast delusions, we are animals of compulsion and repetition. It seems to me the point of art is to explore the idea of humanity as a whole, mankind’s view of itself and the artist’s own concept of humanity. William Faulkner is one such artist who delves deeper into his own ideals, almost breaching the membrane of technicalities before exploiting them on an atomic level, too close to see everything the writer aimed for. His story A Rose for Emily, despite it’s macabre subject, persists as a tremendous exemplification of how the happenings found in the story’s subjects and in reality adhere to the essences of humanity....   [tags: nobel prize, journey, crime]

Examining the Madness of Hamlet Portrayed in Shakespeare's Hamlet

- The theme of madness in Hamlet has been a widely popular topic in the discussion of the play by both critics and readers alike. It is quite simple to see the reason why, since the play confronts us with evidence to prove the validity of the claim to Hamlet’s true madness, or, rather, a view that the actions and words arising from the apparent madness, is but an feigned "antic disposition" as proclaimed by Hamlet himself. This uncertainty in my view, is the question that has bothered many readers of the play, since a dramatic device like this has it’s purpose....   [tags: Literary Analysis, English Literature]
