Prince Hamlet. holding returned place from school in Germany arrives to an disconcerting scene to state the least. His male parent. King Hamlet is dead and his female parent Gertrude has already remarried. Not merely to any adult male either. the king’s brother Claudius who has already taken ownership of the throne. As the gravitation of the state of affairs continues to drop in for Prince Hamlet he begins to surmise right that his uncle Claudius was responsible for his father’s decease.
Hamlet’s intuitions are confirmed when his father’s shade visits him to state him he was murdered. King Hamlet encourages immature Hamlet to seek retribution against his uncle. As Hamlet resolves to make merely that. he begins to inquire about the veracity of the shade and its visits. Hamlet’s fears overcome him and he becomes paralytic emotionally. unable to carry through the petitions of his father’s shade. He cares for both his parents and works himself into a daze seeking to make up one’s mind how to put to death his program of action. In the meantime Hamlet sets in gesture a series of ruinous events that cause the deceases of six people besides Claudius who he originally planned to kill. Hamlet seeks salvation from his suffering state of affairs by contemplating self-destruction. His uninterrupted lamenting and depression give us insight into his internal struggle and torture. Suicide is non the usual manner of salvation found in most plot lines. as with many subjects of salvation there is a more positive Jesus provided.
We may be able to pull the decision that Hamlet’s eventual decease does convey him salvation and freedom from the indecisiveness and pandemonium around him. In a traffic circle manner. Laertes. Hamlet’s eventual liquidator may be seen as the individual who eventually brings Hamlet closing and salvation. Ophelia. who is in love with Hamlet. expresses a moral truth that she values when she tells her brother Laertes that she believes both work forces and adult females should guard their celibacy. This is one of the few times in the drama that Ophelia exerts an sentiment alternatively of giving in to the orders of another person. Feeling overwhelmed. controlled and hopeless herself. Ophelia seeks salvation through her ain self-destruction by submerging. Ophelia’s eventual death can be paralleled to the diminution in moral values in today’s society specifically refering immature adult females.
As adult females and misss attempt to conform to the world’s criterions for them they merely lose themselves more and go a slave to those ideals which can destruct adult females on many degrees. A presentation of a merely society is attempted where people are punished faery for their wickednesss and are non left to take the jurisprudence and affairs into their ain custodies. If a merely society had been more influential within Hamlet’s land in Denmark. many of the calamities would non hold occurred. A merely society is contingent upon moral truths which each individual must possess. These internalized moral truths facilitate working for the common good and curtail a individual from moving upon their ain destructive ideas that could potentially take to the ruin of their society.
As Hamlet lay deceasing. wounded by Laertes’ poisoned blade he announces the land of Demark will be passed on to the King Fortenbras of Norway. The last scene culminates the redemptional qualities of a merely society as the new King of Denmark holds a funeral with military awards for Hamlet.
