7 deadly Sins
Transcript of 7 deadly Sins
Claudius may be considered envy, gluttony, and lust since he was envious of his brother and wanted more power thus going to lengths to murder his brother and marry his wife. his true character is revealed by King Hamlet in Act 1, Scene 5, 42-76. page 64. No fear.
Gertrude is also lustful since just after a month after her husband died she remarried. (1.5. 86- 87) 2.2.526-566 NF pg.128-130 /(R pg. 59-61)
"Oh what a rough and peasant slave am I! Is it not monstrous that this player here... Prompted to my revenge by heaven and hell, Must, like a whore, unpack my heart with words And scullion! Fie upon ’t, foh! About my brain."
Hamlet displays Envy towards the way player 1. This quote can also connects to the sin Anger (Wrath). In Act III Scene II, when Hamlet is speaking with Ophelia, he states "That's a fair thought to lie between maids' legs," (Line 108) which is an example of Lust. It's an example of lust because Hamlet is having thoughts about sex and is being flirty and sexual with Ophelia. King Hamlet kills Polonius and hides his body for no one to locate. Hamlet's anger causes his maddness and chaotic behavior. Gertrude describes Hamlet by stating, "Mad as the sea and wind when both contend..."(4.1 line 7)
King Claudius speaks to Laertes telling him that Hamlet has killed his father, Polonius. Claudius and Laertes both decide they have a common enemy and they begin to plot Hamlet's death. Laertes is eager, saying he will fence against Hamlet but adds to the plan by saying "I'll anoint my sword, I bought an unction of a mountebank..” (4.7 Lines 140-142). Laertes also explains, that even a slight wound would kill Hamlet because the poison is deadly. Laertes decides to kill Hamlet because he wants to defend his father's pride. Act Five The 7 Deadly Sins 2.2.154-160 NF pg.96-98 (R pg. 46)
"Hath there been such a time- I would fain know that- … Chop my head off if I am wrong…"
The scene where Polonius informs Claudius that the “reason” Hamlet has lost his mind do to the love/ lust for his daughter Ophelia. Polonius comes off as Prideful in this scene, but can also relate to the sin Gluttony because of how he kisses up to the new king. In act 5 Pride is the central sin portrayed. " I am satisfied in nature, whose motives in this case should stir me most to my revenge. But in terms of my honor I stand aloof, and will no reconcilement till by some elder masters of known honor... (5.2 232-238) (5.2 343-350) In Shakespeare's tragedy Hamlet , Shakespeare alludes to the seven deadly sins to show each character's downfall, giving a warning to avoid the seven deadly sins and to pursue the seven Capital Virtues. Lust Gertrude Dies at the hand of her beloved husband Claudius.

He always questions himself and thinks things through. Humility, Brotherly Horatio Saved because he chooses to help his friend
He is the only one that believes in Prince Hamlet
The only one who does not deceive Hamlet and is the only person in the play that does not portray a sin.
Therefore Horatio is the model character portrayed. Thesis Through the use of the Allusion of the Seven Deadly sins, Shakespeare makes a reference to the inevitable outcome of death. Despite the path a person chose in life, everyone suffers the same fate. The deaths of each of the six main characters all end due to a fatal flaw ( Seven Deadly sins)
Claudius refers his murder of King Hamlet to be like Cain killing Abel. Examples ''It hath the primal eldest cursed upon't, a brother's murder." (3.3 l.36-54) Grave digging Scene Reference to the inevitability of death.
No mater who you are in life, upon death we all rot in the earth "This fellow might be in 's time buyer of land, with his statues, his recognizances, his fine , his double vouchers, his recoveries. Is this the fine of his fines and recovery of his recoveries, to have his fine pate full of fine dirt" (5.1 90-103) There is no point to all the greed and lust for power in life, there is no need to threaten your life for possessions and pride. In the end, life will end, leaving you with nothing. Is guilt worth the satisfying envy? “A whole one, I.
For thou dost know, O Damon dear, This realm dismantled was
Of Jove himself. And now reigns here
A very, very—pajock.” (Act 3 Scene 2 L. 265-269)
This scene has two examples of Pride; Hamlet boasting about his plan and Hamlet referencing to Claudius as a Pajock. Pajock, in the No Fear Shakespeare version, translates into "Peacock." Peacock represents Pride.
