Transcript of Love in Hamlet
By Daniel Nouri Nejad, Stefano Lopreiato, & Thomas Bianchi The various types of love in Hamlet Laertes to Polonius Romantic Love Love, a prevalent theme in
Hamlet that controls most characters' emotions.
Its power is what drove the characters to seek revenge, another dominant theme. Romantic Love
Devotion •They have a strong father and son relationship just like Hamlet and his father did.
•Laertes wants to leave Denmark because he wants to travel, but Polonius doesn’t want him to go, but also doesn’t want to stand in his way, because he wants his son to have freedom and be able to live his life.
•“ He hath, my lord, wrung from me my slow leave, by labour. some petition, and at last, upon his will I sealed my hard consent. I do beseech you give him leave to go”
•What Polonius is saying in this quote is that he has finally given up and is allowing his son to leave Denmark. Also this quote shows that Polonius is protective of his son. Polonius doesn’t feel confident that Laertes could live on his own. Loyalty Hamlet To King Hamlet
Horatio To Hamlet
Polonius To Laertes WHAT IS LOVE? What is the first thing that pops into your mind at the mere mention of "love"?
What does it really mean?
Is it basically lust and hormones at work or is it something beyond empirical studies?
Who do you love the most? Hamlet and Ophelia
Laertes and Ophelia
Gertude and Claudius
Hamlet and Gertude Hamlet and Ophelia Does Hamlet truly love Ophelia
Initially it seems as though Hamlet is truly in love with her, considering his collection of letters and poems.
Get thee to a nunnery. Why, wouldst thou be a breeder of sinners?” (Act3.Scene 3.121-22)
His unnecessary outburst to Ophelia showed that his misogyny increased to a level that his love for Ophelia has diminished. Loyalty: Showing strong faith to someone or something.
Loyalty is a major theme in Hamlet
Has a major effect how the plot reveals the true nature of the characters
Audience experiences the loyalty of a character through their actions.
Characters that show loyalty: Horatio, Hamlet, Polonius and Laertes Hamlet to his Father Hamlet is very loyal to his father (King of Denmark)
His loyalty towards his father makes him want to get revenge on Claudius for killing his father.
The quote that hamlet says towards Claudius means that he is determined to fulfill his goal on killing Claudius, like his father had told him to kill Claudius for what he had did to him.
Hamlet is loyal to his father the whole time because throughout the play he is always trying to fulfill what his dad had told him to do.
This drives Hamlet to everything he has done. Horatio to Hamlet •Horatio is Hamlets most trusted friend to whom Hamlet reveals his plans to.
•Horatio is with Hamlet in every major part in the play. Also at Ophelias funeral.
•Horatio is showing loyalty to Hamlet by protecting him from Claudius and Laertes scheme, by not going to the duel because it’s a set up and that something bad is going to happen to him.
•“Never believe it. I am more an antique Roman then a Dane, here’s yet some liquor”
•Horatio is extremely loyal to Hamlet that he is even willing to kill himself by drinking the poison at the duel. Family Ties In the drama Hamlet, there are various examples of the concept of love tied in with family relationships within the main characters. Hamlet Junior To Hamlet Senior Hamlet Jr. loves and respects his father to the point that he finds it hard to accept that Claudius his uncle is now king, father and husband to Gertrude.
“So excellent a King, that was to this hyperion to a satyr, so lofting to my mother that he might not between the winds of heaven visit her face too roughly.” (I,ii, 139-142) Hamlet loves his father, Hamlet Sr., but he struggles with the moral responsibility of murdering Claudius, his father’s murderer. Even if Claudius is the killer, it is difficult for Hamlet to murder him.
“Remorseless, treacherous, lecherous, kindness villain! Why, what an ass I am! This is most brave, that I tshe son of a dear father murdered.” (II, ii, 567-570) Gertude to Her Son Great proves her love for her son, Hamlet, when he asks to keep his secret from Claudius. Gertrude keeps her promise to Hamlet when she lies to Claudius about Hamlet being insane.
“Mad as the sea and wind when both contend which is the mightier.” (IV, I,7-8) Polonius to his children Polonius demonstrates his fatherly love for both Larates and Ophelia. He sends Reynaldo to France to spy on Larates to watch over his well- being.
“By indirections find directions out” (II,i,66)
Polonius also warns Ophelia to guard herself against Hamlet’s love advances. Polonius loves his daughter and does not wish to see her hurt.
“And that in way of caution. I must tell you you do not understand yourself so clearly as it behoves my daughter and your honour.” (I,iii,95-99) Fortinbras and his father To conclude, Fortinbras Jr. loves his father that at the end of the play he vindicates his father’s death.
“I have some rights of memory in this kingdom which now to claim my vantage doth invite me.” (V,ii,381-383) THE END! Laertes and Ophelia These two share something greater than the same blood, romantic love, or the vernacular term, incest.
Laertes occasionally speaks to her with the usage of sexual terms that is not commonly spoken between siblings.
Laertes jumps in her grave to grab her hands
``Hold off the earth awhile, Till I have caught her once more in mine arms.`` (Act.5, Scn.2, 232-235) Hamlet and Gertude Oedipus Complex: The attachment of a child towards the parent of the opposite sex while developing aggressive and envious feelings towards the parent of the same sex
Hamlet disguises his jealousy as misogyny as he reveals his opinion of the relationship between Gertude and Claudius.
Hamlet often revealed certain details of Claudius sexual actions towards Gertude, demonstrating his obsession with her sexuality.
``Nay, but to live in the rank sweat of an enseamèd bed, Stewed in corruption, honeying and making loveOver the nasty sty— (Act.3, Scn, 4, 92-95) Gertude and Claudius Their marriage is mystery but a possible incentive for Gertude to proceed with this marriage could be true love
Mystery proves to be the greatest device in this play as it enables the audience to ponder more. Love is a major theme in Hamlet because:
it contributed to many of the players' actions,
their relationship status decided their fate
it controlled their feelings, aiding them to develop clever decisions. IN CONCLUSION
