1032 words - 4 pagesTragic death plays a really big role in William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Hamlet often considers death in many different perspectives, and definitely obsesses with the idea more so after his fathers’ death. Hamlet’s soliloquy is one of the most famous in literature, “Tobeornottobe, that is the question…” Hamlet’s dilemma is the pain of life that he must endure or the uncertainty of death. From the beginning of the play to the very last scene, the fascination between life and death plays a role throughout. Hamlet is troubled through the play after realizing that his uncle was the one who murdered his father and is now married to his mother. He wants to avenge Hamlet Sr. death and killVIEW DOCUMENT

Hamlet ponders whether he should simply end the sorrows of his life quickly, i.e. suicide, or continue his life and let fortune either alleviate these struggles or continue to add more sorrows.
When we last saw Hamlet, he cursed himself for his lack of resolve and action. He watched an actor weep and moan across the stage in grief for Hecuba, the fallen queen of Troy, whom the actor had no connection to. In the previous act, Hamlet's father appeared to him in the form of a ghost to tell Hamlet that Hamlet's uncle murdered his father then married Hamlet's mother, takingVIEW DOCUMENT

Ophelia waits for Hamlet to walk by and pretends tobe reading a prayer book. Seeing this, Hamlet launches into his most famous soliloquies:

William Shakespeare’s “Tobe, ornottobe” soliloquy delivered by our lead character Hamlet is arguably the most popular soliloquy in all of literature, but is it? The question isn’t if it is the most popular in all of literature, but is it even a true soliloquy? Is it even original thought by Shakespeare? We will examine these questions in greater detail by scrutinizing articles written about these very topics and see if there is any validity to the claims. We will even look to the playwright himself, within his own work, to determine how he viewed the idea of the soliloquy.
Let us first examine a soliloquy, what it is now, what it was then, and how it has changed. James Hirsh opensVIEW DOCUMENT

Hamlet’s dishonesty may be relatively justifiable because he is human, however an admired king should be beyond human imperfections and always answer truthfully.
Hamlet’s characteristic of indecisiveness is the most prevalent in his famous “tobeornottobe” (III, i, 67) soliloquy. In his speech, Hamlet struggles with his choices of living or committing suicide. He compares death to sleep when he exclaims, “by a sleep to say we end the heartache, and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to” (III, i, 61-64). At this moment, Hamlet longs toVIEW DOCUMENT

That way, Hamlet will have enough proof tobe able to see if his uncle is guilty ornot and therefore, won’t have any regrets or guilt about killing the man. Hamlet mentions how he wants to capture the conscious of the King and end his life.

As Hamlet's disbelief morphs into a cold, disturbed reasoning, he develops a plan to feign insanity. He tells his friends that from then on, he will maintain “an antic disposition” (1.5.28) so as tonot seem suspicious in his quest for revenge.

As we can see, the above opinion does not have any sense.The only true fact about the usefulness of a death penalty is the fact that many people feel that killing convicted murderers will satisfy their need for justice and / or vengeance. The only bad thing about it is : executing a criminal does not bring his victim back to life. Even though some people fell relieved when the murderer is executed, there is no way to reverse the crime(s) that he has committed.Even though almost everything and everybody speak against the capital punishment, I think that people who committed violent crimes should be punished to the fullest extend of law, which capital punishment basically is.As well as no human being deserves tobe executed, no human being deserves to have his or her life taken away by the criminal.

This famous soliloquy manifests the expression of very deep and conflicting emotions. Ruth Nevo in “Acts III and IV: Problems of Text and Staging” explains the basic conflict within the hero’s most famous “Tobeornottobe” soliloquy:

It has been referenced to in Star Trek, Calvin and Hobbes and A Nightmare on Elm Street. However, this speech was not intended tobe a lighthearted reference as indicated by Hamlet’s contemplative, philosophical, and bitter tones he uses while questioning the nature of life and death in this soliloquy.
To begin with, Hamlet starts off his speech asking, “Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer/ The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune/ Orto take arms against a sea of troubles/ And by opposing end them” (Shakespeare 3.1.57-60). He wonders if heVIEW DOCUMENT
