Were one to have the profound hatred, were one to avenge and harm his family who seems too far to harm, he would be either a hero or a monster. Should he fight the unbeatable foe and right the wrong, should he bear with unbearable sorrow, should he ruin himself in twisted enthusiasm, he would be Hamlet.
Among all the masterpieces of William Shakespeare, “Hamlet”， undoubtedly is worshipped and as one of the most successful and admired tragedies, while the character Hamlet remains one of the most loved dramatis personas in all-time history of literature.
To have read Shakespeare's “Romeo and Juliet” by the age of 16, I was moved to tears, while having no empathy with his another great one “Tempest”。 Presumably when I get 60 or older, I could be wise enough to understand the latter, but find it nothing worthwhile to go over the former one, where lays a romantic story that the only youngsters are addicted to. But it's a fact that whenever in our lifetime after gaining such experiences as getting through hard times, or, finding a real self, from “Hamlet”， we always find something that we consider as perpetuation, which is worth deep thoughts. This is because it highlights Hamlet's choices of life, choices made under certain circumstances of history and society, requested by the fate extraordinary to Hamlet himself, but ordinary to mankind. That is, to some extent, his experiences make a similar one to ours and, his destiny is something we're facing sometime in our own lives.
We're possibly the same. We explore the truth in the dark. We discover facts from the mist. We lose ourselves in determinations. We trespass on which we're forbid to be, hesitates at love and hatred, and struggle to rebuild system of values and spiritual prop in a world without standards and scales of standards.
Hamlet couldn't have been perfect. He is very much a person motivated by irrational enthusiasm, impetuous enough to kill Polonius only to find it's a mistake as the victim is not the king. But somehow it is for his poor enthusiasm, his weakness of humanity, that Hamlet touches countless readers, as everyone makes out himself from the ill-fated prince.
Hamlet's “revenge” isn't so much simply the killing of Claudius, as it is the purging of all the rottenness in the Danish court. And although it costs him his life, he succeeds.
At some time, we all consider how much wrong there is in the world. “Hamlet” gives us a chance to watch an ordinary person consciously choose to say “No!” to the world's wrongness and falsities, and to strike back with power. William Shakespeare held up the mirror to something in us that is precious.
I hear Hamlet thinking, “Too many people waste too much effort doing things that are not worthwhile. It's a bad world, and I am far from a perfect human being. We all end up dead in the end. So I am going to do something worthwhile, and do it right.”
I hear him wondering, “What is a man, If his chief good and market of his time. Is but to sleep and feed? A beast, no more.”
I hear him whispering “To be, or not to be, aye, there's the point. To die, to sleep, is that all? Aye, all.”
That makes a hero to me, regardless of his blindness and madness which haunt everyone for a while in his time. Thousands of readers may have thousands of their own Hamlet, but there's something that stays the same, that Hamlet dares to run, where the brave dare not go. That's his quest.
Thinks about it.
Shakspere (wrong spelling) created Hamlet--a man with wisdom and courage .In order to revenge on his uncle for killing his father, he pretented (spelling mistake) to be mad and suffered a series of misery. On the contrary, we can also say that Hamlet is rude and selfish for he did not think twice before his revenge . if (Capitalize "If" since it is the beginning word of the sentence.) a country has no king, how can a country keep alive (You need a question mark here since it is a question.) So, every thing has two sides, the bright side and adumbral side. Every time we make a decision we have to think twice.
Be careful with your spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Too many uncessary mistakes.
It is good that you looked at both the dark and bright sides of Hamlet. Thats quite objective and convincing.
The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, or more simply Hamlet, is a tragedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1599 and 1601. The play, set in Denmark, recounts how Prince Hamlet exacts revenge on his uncle Claudius, who has murdered Hamlet's father, the King, and then taken the throne and married Gertrude, Hamlet's mother. The play vividly charts the course of real and feigned madness—from overwhelming grief to seething rage—and explores themes of treachery, revenge, in-ce-st, and moral corruption.
Despite much literary detective work, the exact year of writing remains in dispute. Three different early versions of the play have survived: these are known as the First Quarto (Q1), the Second Quarto (Q2) and the First Folio (F1). Each has lines, and even scenes, that are missing from the others. Shakespeare probably based Hamlet on the legend of Amleth, preserved by 13th-century chronicler Saxo Grammaticus in his Gesta Danorum and subsequently retold by 16th-century scholar Fran??ois de Belleforest, and a supposedly lost Elizabethan play known today as the Ur-Hamlet.
Given the play's dramatic structure and depth of characterization, Hamlet can be analyzed, interpreted and argued about from many perspectives. For example, scholars have debated for centuries about Hamlet's hesitation in killing his uncle. Some see it as a plot device to prolong the action, and others see it as the result of pressure exerted by the complex philosophical and ethical issues that surround cold-blooded murder, calculated revenge and thwarted desire. More recently, psychoanalytic critics have examined Hamlet's unconscious desires, and feminist critics have re-evaluated and rehabilitated the often maligned characters of Ophelia and Gertrude.
Hamlet is Shakespeare's longest play and among the most powerful and influential tragedies in the English language. It provides a storyline capable of "seemingly endleretelling and adaptation by others". During Shakespeare's lifetime, the play was one of his most popular works, and it still ranks high among his most-performed, topping, for example, the Royal Shakespeare Company's list since 1879. It has inspired writers from Goethe and Dickens to Joyce and Murdoch and has been described as "the world's most filmed story after Cinderella". The title role was almost certainly created for Richard Burbage, the leading tragedian of Shakespeare's time. In the four hundred years since, it has been played by highly acclaimed actors, and sometimes actresses, of each successive age.
