William Shakespeare’s “To be, or not to be” 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 opens

of treason. Although it would be challenging for one to admit the location of their murdered victim, it would be an extremely noble response. 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 “to be or not to be” (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 to

Ophelia waits for Hamlet to walk by and pretends to be reading a prayer book. Seeing this, Hamlet launches into his most famous soliloquies:
To be, or not to be, that is the question:

The Slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And by opposing end them. To die, to sleep –

According to Merrion-Webster Inc. Dictionary, a doppelgänger is a double, an often ghostly or evil counterpart to a character. It comes from the German language, doppel- double + -gänger goer. It might be asked, "What does a doppelgänger have to do with a paper on Joseph Conrad?" The answer is a lot, especially if Conrad's "The Secret Sharer" is being discussed. In this short story, the two characters, the captain and Leggatt, share many similarities, as well as differences. When comparing the similarities and differences, they can be used to show the duality between the captain and Leggatt. Conrad used Leggatt as a doppelgänger to help the captain come terms with

performed will make the audience full of tears and “makes mad the guilty and appeal the free.” In other words, the prince is saying how the reenactment of his father’s death in the play will make his uncle squirm in uncomfortableness. That way, Hamlet will have enough proof to be able to see if his uncle is guilty or not 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.

Shakespeare's "To be, or not to be" speech can be interpreted in many different ways. In the Gibson, Jacobi, and Branagh versions, senses of depression, contemplation, and vengeance were conveyed. All of the emotions represented by the actors were appropriate, given the mental and physical states of Hamlet in the context of the play.In the Mel Gibson version, Hamlet was portrayed as a depressed and suicidal individual. He wore a black, leathery outfit, with a small dagger tied around the waist. The setting began with Hamlet descending through chiaroscuro into dark and gloomy catacombs, filled with skulls on the wall and a large sarcophagus. Gibson's gestures included walking through

And even though, as far as I know, there is no strong statistical evidence that the death penalty lowers the murder rate, many people were very happy with that decision. What they probably though was ' some people would not commit a murder, rape or another violent crime if they would know that they could get on a death row for that '.However, my personal opinion is that death penalty has to be justified on its own goodness, rather than by some pragmatic result it brings about.

different things. More common uses range from carpooling and transporting multiple passengers to hauling outdoor recreational equipment. Moreover, "the automobile is the greatest symbol of American freedom" (466). A large part of this freedom is the independence that comes along with owning an automobile. Owning a Sport Utility Vehicle can and does greatly enhance this independence. These vehicles have the ability to go where small sports cars cannot. They have the ability to maneuver in and out of rough terrain without hesitation. And lastly, they have the ability to assist other vehicles that might be in need of the power that the SUV can provide.In Conclusion, both the pros and the cons of owing these vehicles present valid arguments, but given the strength of the pros when compared to the cons, I definitely side with the author of the article. As stated earlier, in my opinion the advantages of owning or even driving a Sport Utility Vehicle such as the Ford Explorer undoubtedly prevail over owning a sport compact such a Honda Civic.

The Moral Question in Hamlet's Soliloquy - To be or not to be...
"The major question in 'To be or not to be' cannot be suicide. If it were, as many have noted, it would be dramatically irrelevant. Hamlet is no longer sunk in the depths of melancholy, as he was in his first soliloquy. He has been roused to action and has just discovered how to test the Ghost's words. When we last saw him, only five minutes before, he was anticipating the night's performance, and in only a few moments we shall see him eagerly instructing the players and excitedly telling Horatio of his plan. To have him enter at this point debating whether or not to kill himself would be completely inconsistent with

The text to be or not to be by William Shakespeare refers to the paradox of life and death. He starts the poem by questioning himself: is it worth to exist or not, and by existing he is referring to the human ability of thinking; in the sense of: I exist because I can think. This issue is developed throughout the poem were the action of thinking deals with the decision of; should I live or not and it certainly becomes an obstacle to make that decision. In that sense the poem transmits that the innate human quality of thinking is what makes us weak instead of being a useful tool to make right decisions. In other words, despite we can perceive a solution to our problems (death), we are

The “To be or not to be” Soliloquy of Hamlet
Does the hero in Shakespeare’s Hamlet deliver a soliloquy that does not fit the dramatic context? Does the soliloquy suggest that suicide is imminent? This essay proposes to answer these and other questions relevant to the “To be or not to be” soliloquy.
Lawrence Danson in the essay “Tragic Alphabet” discusses the most famous of soliloquies as involving an “eternal dilemma”:
The problem of time’s discrediting effects upon human actions and intentions is what makes Hamlet’s “To be, or not to be” soliloquy eternal dilemma rather than fulfilled dialectic. Faced with the uncertainty of any action, an uncertainty that

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 “To be or not to be” soliloquy:

The soliloquy that appears in Act 3 Scene 1 of Shakespeare’s Hamlet is easily one of the most popular speeches in English literature. It has been referenced to in Star Trek, Calvin and Hobbes and A Nightmare on Elm Street. However, this speech was not intended to be 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/ Or to take arms against a sea of troubles/ And by opposing end them” (Shakespeare 3.1.57-60). He wonders if he

The reasons for marijuana not being legalized are similar to the reasons people want tobacco to become illegal. Only the danger that tobacco provides is more intense than the danger of marijuana.Marijuana's short-term effects include temporary problem with memory and problems with learning. It also causes temporary distorted perception (sounds, time, touch etc.), trouble thinking and solving problems. For some people smoking marijuana causes loss of motor coordination.

Although not immediately seen as a likely success (Shippey), J.R.R. Tolkein’s original epic fantasy The Lord of the Rings flourished, and has had numerous adaptations for different mediums in the years following its publication. Not surprisingly, each one has had its criticism. In particular, deviations from canon – a term used to mean original story-line and accepted character history supported by the author’s writings – are among the worst “offenses” that can be made when pursuing an adaptation, according to those who refer to themselves as Tolkein “purists.” Such changes, they argue, substantially change the narrative and spirit of the original tale (Ruzin).

Head impacts from bicycle crashes do not generally involve a direct square-on impact, most commonly there is an angled impact as the head hits the ground with forward momentum; or the windshield of a motor vehicle. Tests are not carried out for these, however. Such an impact is likely to impart some degree of rotational force on the head and brain. The effect of helmets on rotational forces to the brain is not entirely clear. Rotational forces may be reduced by the same crushing effect of the helmet that reduces linear forces; but they may be increased due to the increased size and mass of the head with the added helmet.

If each of these cells is then to be considered a possible human being, then any time any cell is removed through surgery for instance, a potential life is destroyed.

The company has great expectations for the Chinese market and hopes that it will, in the very near future, be a close second if not surpass their U.S. market.

How does the speech "To be or not to be..." affect our understanding of Hamlet's character and his role(s) in the play as a whole?In this speech we see the core of Hamlet's problem; we see clearly that he is a man who has come to understand himself. He has finally understood that his real problem is his incapacity to act in a decisive manner. The soliloquy concludes with this understanding. His role in the revenge tragedy had been to slay Claudius for the murder of his father. Hamlet has so far failed to do this and this famous soliloquy is concerned with two things: firstly, Hamlet's desire for death, and his own aversion to decisive action.At the start of the play Hamlet is revealed as a
