To Write Or Not To Write (A Discussion Of Three Soliloquies In Hamlet)

744 words - 3 pages

When in the course of human events, something’s are made self-evident, like having to read Hamlet and write about three soliloquies. These soliloquies tend to be very lengthy and have very sub surface meanings to them that require some enabled humanoids to use the frontal cortex of their neurological brains in order to understand these meanings. In other words, they are hard to understand, especially with them being written in the Shakespearean era of influence in the island Kingdoms that are Untied. However, they offer meanings unimaginable and crucial to the outcome of the play Hamlet. As I have just explained, the three soliloquies of Act I, II, III, of the play Hamlet by William Shakespeare have very deep important meanings and messages to them.

The second concern of Hamlet is how fast his mother is to remarry after the death of her husband, the King. Hamlet says several times that it’s only been a month or a few and his own mother has remarried to, Hamlet’s uncle, Claudius. The last lines state, “But break, my heart, for I must hold my tongue.” (Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act one, scene two, lines 161) In this last message, Hamlet is feeling tremendous sadness and anger over him, but he cannot do anything about it and he can’t tell anyone.
In the second act of the play, the soliloquy known as “Now I am alone” we find out that Hamlet has just learned the true death of his father. Hamlet classifies himself as a coward by stating, “O, what a rogue and peasant slave am I!” (Shakespeare,...
