Transcript of Hamlet VS Romeo and Juliet

Hamlet VS Romeo and Juliet A comparison of two Shakespearean plays Arthur Miller Hamlet Romeo and Juliet Thesis: “an event causing great suffering, destruction, and distress, such as a serious accident, crime, or natural catastrophe.” a tragedy that killed 95 people “a play dealing with tragic events and having an unhappy ending, especially one concerning the downfall of the main character” Shakespeare’s tragedies Aristotle A Tragic Hero 1. A noble or of great importance 2. Hamartia (fatal flaw) 3. Catharsis (purging of emotions) 1. A noble or of great importance 2. Hamartia Hamlet Romeo and Juliet Inability to act “That I, the son of the dear murder’d, prompted to my revenge by heaven and hell, must, like a whore, unpack my heart with words.” (II,ii,581-2)
-Hamlet Too hasty in their decisions The element of tragedy is used to its full potential when the audience can relate to what the characters are experiencing and feel empathy towards them; when the characters are willing to risk it all in hopes of achieving a goal. “Thou art not conquered. Beauty’s ensign yet is crimson in thy lips and in thy cheeks, and death’s pale flag is not advanced there.” (V,iii, 103-5)
-Romeo 3. Catharsis Hamlet Romeo and Juliet 1."To be or not to be" 2. The final battle 3. When Hamlet tells Fortenbras “Here, thou incestuous, murderous, damned Dane, drink off this poison. Is thy union here? Follow my mother.” (V,ii,317-8)
-Hamlet Romeo and Juliet taking their own lives Titanic The Lion King Causes of Tragedy Hamlet Romeo and Juliet Need for Revenge Family Conflict Forbidden Love Pathos An appeal to the audience emotions "A dog of the house of Montague moves me"(I,i,7)
-Sampson “She married:— O, most wicked speed, to post. With such dexterity to incestuous sheets!” (I,ii,156-7).
-Hamlet "Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder"
(I,v,25) -Ghost "It is the east, and Juliet is the sun." (II,ii)
-Romeo “This is thy sheath. There rust and let me die.” (V,iii,186)
-Juliet In Conclusion "I would not, in plain terms, from this time forth,
Have you so slander any moment leisure,
As to give words or talk with the Lord Hamlet.
Look to't, I charge you: come your ways."
