Hamlet is an Arrogant Prick
Transcript of Hamlet is an Arrogant Prick
O me, what hast thou done?
Nay, I know not. Is it the king?
In your arrogance you were hasty and brash, and so killed and innocent man, and then did not seem to care about it. You also had the perfect opportunity for revenging your father's murder:
but you decided against it, because Claudius will go to heaven. Hamlet’s arrogance leads him to miss his perfect opportunity to revenge his father’s murder because Claudius wouldn’t suffer “properly” if killed then. To take him in the purging of his soul
When he is fit and seasoned for his passage?
Up, sword, and know thou a more horrid hent.
When he is drunk asleep, or in his rage,
Or in th' incestuous pleasure of his bed,
At game a-swearing, or about some act
That has no relish of salvation in ’t—
Then trip him, that his heels may kick at heaven,
And that his soul may be as damned and black
As hell, whereto it goes. My mother stays
This physic but prolongs thy sickly days. Your arrogance is your greatest weakness; and Claudius and Laertes new this, and took advantage of it: HORATIO
You will lose this wager, my lord.
I do not think so. Since he went into France, I have been in continual practice. I shall win at the odds. But thou wouldst not think how ill all’s here about my heart. But it is no matter. The duel was a trap you dutifully sprung. Your arrogance would not allow you to back down from a challenge, even if it is from your two greatest enemies. What's the Truth, Hamlet?
Ay, truly, for the power of beauty will sooner transform honesty from what it is to a bawd than the force of honesty can translate beauty into his likeness. This was sometime a paradox, but now the time gives it proof. I did love you once.
Indeed, my lord, you made me believe so.
You should not have believed me, for virtue cannot so inoculate our old stock but we shall relish of it. I loved you not. Does that make Hamlet Unlikeable? Well, that's up to you.
